Editorial Reviews

You have to love a TV program whose titles alone manage to evoke the Old and New Testaments ("The First Commandment" and "Cold Lazarus," respectively), Shakespeare ("Brief Candle"), Norse mythology ("Thor's Hammer"), and more--and those are just four of the episodes contained on this, the second disc of Stargate SG-1's first season. Yet, while stories dealing with the nature of fear ("Thor's Hammer"), the value of enjoying life, no matter how short ("Brief Candle"), and other weighty issues certainly offer the potential for pretension, these largely manage to steer clear of it. As usual, the creators have spent their money on special effects rather than a lot of elaborate sets or enormous action pieces; there's also a refreshing emphasis on the stories, with their elements of humor, suspense, drama, and emotional resonance. Each episode has a menu for selecting the different scenes; DVD bonus features are limited to language and subtitle choices, along with a very slight, self-serving cast and crew featurette. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Episode #8.5: Icon - SG-1Â's sudden appearance sparks a civil war on the planet Tegalus, whose inhabitants were unaware of the StargateÂ's true nature. Intent on easing the situation, Jackson stays behind as the team returns to Earth, but finds himself pitted against a tyrannical religious leader with no tolerance for those who donÂ't share his beliefs! Episode #8.6: Avatar - A virtual reality training scenario goes terribly wrong when the simulation begins to learn from TealÂ'c, trapping him and endangering his life. Jackson volunteers to enter the simulation on a rescue mission. But will he be able to rescue TealÂ'c or become a victim himself? Episode #8.8: Affinity - Given clearance to live off-base, TealÂ'c tries in vain to blend in as an ordinary civilian. But when his unwavering ethical code compels him to help ordinary people in trouble, specifically, a neighbor with an abusive boyfriend, he soon finds himself thrust into the spotlight as the prime suspect in the boyfriendÂ's murder! Episode #8.7: Covenant - When a billionaire industrialist threatens to reveal the existence of alien life at a press conference, SG-1 is charged with the job of keeping him quiet. Carter, who has worked with him in the past, tries to explain that the information will cause panic, but ultimately she must decide how far she is willing to go to stop this threat to national security.

I think it is useful to remember that when you are looking at the first season of any series that the writing staff spends a lot of time getting everything set up in the pilot and then off of the various premises they have established they start spinning off stories. This means that everybody is writing episodes without having seen any, which explains why it takes a show a while to get going after a strong pilot. You will see that this is the case in the five episodes from Season 1 of "Stargate SG-1" that are collected here on Volume 2. The results are certainly not bad as they explore some ideas basic to the premise of the series, but this series really hits stride in the second half of this first season and finishes very strongly. The biggest common denominator for this set is that most of the episodes showcase the acting ability of Richard Dean Anderson, who gets to do a lot more than crack jokes in a sardonic manner. So just keep in mind that the pilot was good, that the best is yet to come, and that these are still enjoyable episodes and one of them is very good:
Episode 4, "Broco Divide" (Written by Jonathan Glassner, Aired August 15, 1997) has SG-1 visiting a planet when the people are divided into the "Touched" and the "Untouched." When the team returns home they discover that they have contracted the disease of the "Touched," which has General Hammond (Don S. Davis) and Doctor Frasier (Teryl Rothery) in a state of near panic. Although the problem of contagion is rarely as "real" consideration in these shows, this episode does deal with the problem and gives Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) an opporunity to get primitive. 4 Stargates.
Episode 5, "The First Commandment" (Written by Robert C.

5.0 out of 5 stars Correction August 5, 2001
By Jose
This DVD does not include the episoide THE NOX, the chronological order of the DVD is based on the Syndication release, not on Showtime. Therefore, THE NOX is in Volume 3, which is in the Season One boxed set.

4.0 out of 5 stars SG-1: Season 1, Vol. 2 August 3, 2001
As a fan of the series it is great to have these episodes out on DVD. My one complaint is that only Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 are available individually. If you want Volumes 3-5 to complete the first season episodes, you need to purchase the entire Season One Boxed Set (I have the same problem with the "X-Files" and a couple other shows). Looking forward to Season Two whenever that comes out on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stargate SG-1 Episodes September 24, 2001
Although I highly recommend any purchase of Stargate SG-1 episodes on DVD - and this release includes one of my favorites: The Nox (it also includes on of my least favorite : Brief Candle), I would strongly recommend opting for the season 1 boxed set instead. Currently on Disc 1 and 2 are available seperately, but the boxed set spans the entirety of the first season. Also, the video quality suffers some on this release because 5 episodes are included, but the degradation does not make it any less worthwhile to own. The complete listing of episodes are: 4) The Broca Divide 5) The First Commandment 6) Cold Lazarus 7) The Nox 8) Brief Candle.
Highly Recommended - But STRONGLY recommend the Boxed set instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!!! May 28, 2001
StarGate SG-1 is the best, the only problem I have is that several other reviews show that the episode The NOX is on the disc, but the disc I revieved only has episodes 4-8 on it. So if you purchase this title, take a close look at it and check to see what is on it, if some have the extra episode and some do not, you might be getting a bonus!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD for a great show. May 24, 2001
Stargate SG1 is a great Science Fiction Adventure series featuring a great cast led by Richard Dean Anderson. Michael Shanks is actually better in the role of Daniel Jackson than James Spader was in the original movie. The special effects in the series are all top notch, and the scripts are well written. Stargate SG1 is closer in spirit to the original Star Trek series of the 60's than any of the recent Star Trek shows (that's not comparing quality, just style - although SG1 holds up very well to them quality wise). That sense of adventure from the original Star Trek series is present in SG1, but SG1 just has more modern sensibilities. The episodes on the DVD Vol 2 are all good, with Brief Candle and Thor's Hammer as standouts. This DVD is well worth buying, and I highly recommend it, but you may also want to consider the Box Set of season 1. That's a great package. But you get great value with Vol 2 on its own as well (5 episodes on this disc). Either way - BUY IT! You will not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Season Developement February 11, 2003
By A Customer
The episodes on this DVD reflect the still developing story lines & characters typical of the series' first season. While some are better done (Cold Lazarus) than others (Brief Candle), all are worth watching. And one episode, Thor's Hammer, shows a glimpse of the greatness that is to come.
4)Broco Divide - primative aliens & a mysterious illness. Need I say more?
5)The First Commandment - mutiny & a SG team leader with a God complex. Great interaction between Carter & O'Neill in the closing dialogue.
6)Brief Candle - beautiful, naive humans in a sheltered environment being corrupted by SG1. This episode is so like something Capt. Kirk would run into in the original series it was deja vue all over again. Star Trek anyone?
7)Cold Lazarus - a frindly alien impersonates O'Neill in an attempt to bring back O'Neill's son. This episode shows a rarely seen tender side of Col. O'Neill. Enjoy it girls, you won't see it again.
8)Thor's Hammer - the begining of the in-depth story developement and crucial to understanding some of the later episodes. This one is for everyone.
