The Showtime cable series Stargate SG-1 turns the premise of Stargate into a surprisingly viable formula, with former MacGyver star Richard Dean Anderson assuming Kurt Russell's role as Air Force hero Jack O'Neill. Michael Shanks inherits James Spader's role as archeologist Daniel Jackson, and the series' 1997 pilot, "Children of the Gods," reunites the adventurers when the Air Force's Stargate facility on Earth is attacked by sentries from Abydos, the distant planet on the other side of the space-warping Stargate. Faced with a new nemesis from Abydos, O'Neill and the fresh recruits of Unit SG-1 must return to the planet and close off the Stargate to prevent further attacks on Earth. It's a pretty standard adventure, with brief, gratuitous R-rated nudity not seen in the original cablecast, but Anderson's an appealing leader of the well-chosen cast (including Alexis Cruz, reprising his role from the film), and the show's production values are consistently high. Taking logical steps from Stargate, series developers Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner have managed an admirable feat, creating a spin-off that doesn't feel like a rip-off.

Episode One, "The Enemy Within," continues the SG-1 pilot, with the discovery that officer Kawalsky (Jay Acavone) is now the enslaved host of a Goa'uld larvae--a snakelike parasite from Abydos that has seized control of Kawalski's nervous system. Only an elaborate surgical procedure can save Kawalski's life, and the SG-1 loyalty of Teal'c (Christopher Judge)--a former enemy from Abydos who is also a Goa'uld host--is put to the test.

Episode Two, "Emancipation," guest-stars Soon-Tek Oh as the leader of the Shavadai, a Mongolian-like tribe on the planet Simarka, where the SG-1 Unit has arrived via the Stargate to begin their first expedition. The Shavadai view women as subservient and submissive, so the presence of SG-1 Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) causes an instant--and, for Carter, potentially deadly--uproar. This episode offers an enjoyable balance of humor and suspense, and establishes Tapping as a witty sparring partner for Anderson. --Jeff Shannon

Customer Reviews

Anderson plays O'Neill much better than Russell.
Nick Slicer
The first season of "Stargate SG-1" is a lot better than the first season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," and you know how good that series got.

And well I just want the video - is that too much to ask?!

If you saw the movie Stargate and felt left out in left field, don't let that stop you from seeing the series on Showtime. If you don't mind the commercials, Fox is syndicating it and is a season behind Showtime. Richard Dean Anderson adds a personality that for some reason Kurt Russell left out. IMHO, Michael Shanks does a lot better Daniel Jackson. It's fun to watch a show that gives female leads a strong character as in Captain [now a major] Samantha Carter. As far as matters dealing with the "how to's" of the stargate she's much smarter than O'Neill. Teal'c played by Christopher Judge is incredible in his depth of character and his ability to do other things in the show. He's done several voice overs for other characters. If you've already seen the first few episodes, I can only repeat the old worn out cliche that says, "you ain't seen nothin' yet." They just keep getting better and better. Heavens, I can't forget General George [Don S. Davis] Hammond. A real "by the book" General that can actually have a softer side. BTW, this show is the only program being made today that has the USAF approval and they oversee all scripts dealing with military activities and protocols. What you see is the real deal, folks. Well, the gate is fiction. But, the rest is watched closely. The show actually rates 11 stars if I could give it to them. The SG-1 team really deserves a LOT of kudos for this one.

Forget eBay. If you've been trying to get the 1997 movie that kicked off the television series, this is it. Apparently "Children of the Gods," the movie considered "rare" by fans, has been re-released with this new box cover. It is, however, definitely the same as the movie listed by Amazon as "currently unavailable." Thought those of you pining over it would want to know. The only place the actual title appears on the box in on the back. Way to go, MGM--and Amazon!

This made-for-television movie takes place about a year or so after the Stargate movie and it is a good introduction to the series, Stargate SG-1, but it doesn't deliver the action and special effects it promises and that we have come to expect in the series. Sadly, the producers found it necessary to add nudity that is nothing short of gratuitous. While I'm not against nudity if it contributes to the story, I do oppose it when it occurs in a movie that is the precursor to a series that is popular with children. The writing was good, Richard Dean Anderson is a better o"Neill than Kurt Russell, and Amanda Tapping as Sam Carter is able to deliver all of those quantum physics phrases with credibility. While the series definitely does a better job of character development, this is a must-see for the SG-1 fan.

It's good. You don't need to see the movie to understand this pilot episode. It sets up everything for the first season. The acting is on the money. (in fact at first it's hard to tell Shanks from Spader). Anderson plays O'Neill much better than Russell. I kinda wish they re-made the orginal Stargate with these two.

The "rare" movie children of the gods is back! The only difference is the cover. This is a great movie! I recommend this to any sg1 fan. Since it is unedited, beware: there is some nudity. I was surprised because the tv version cut the part out.

StarGate SG-1 has kept to the mthyos of the original Stargate.Richard Dean Anderson has portrayed Col.O'Niell as good if not better than Kurt Russell.The conflct with the Gau'loud system lords was a great way to expand the plot,and the storyline of Daniel tring to find his wife is the most dramatic part of the series.

Very well done MGM Domestic Television. 16x9 Enhanced - Very Good. Picture Quality - Could Be Better. Program Content - Fantastic. On Screen Logos - None (Really Great). Commercial Breaks - None (Really Great). I have only seen this series on TV in the UK, of course minus the nude sequence. Also on UK TV, the episode titles are different! We only see the actors name e.g. Don S. Davis, but not his image. I hope MGM make the rest of the series available and with 3/4 episodes a DVD.

It must be a first to have the series available over here before the States gets it ,my collection is so far up to volume 7 . We get 4 episodes per DVD . I have to rate the whole series ,as 10 out of 10 ,enjoyable to watch ,well put together ,Richard Dean Anderson is well cast as a bolshie troop ,adding an angle to the show that other programs fail to do . We are just about to start the 4 th series ,over here . I hear through the grapevine that the 5 th series is due to start filming in 2001 ,in Canada ,could we be in for the STAR TREK experience ,where it just goes on and on ,I hope so ! A warning to the writers and producers ,your fans are not stupid ,don;t allow the program to deteriate , as is the case with other sci-fi series as they get older please ,we like it the way it is ......
