1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Title!!! This is not Season One! December 5, 2009
Format:DVD
This is only HALF of the first season. The title of this item says "Stargate SG-U: Season One (2009)" But later down in the Editorial review it states that it's a three disc set that will include 10 episodes from Season 1.

Season 1 will have 20 episodes in it and this DVD set is set for release in Feb 2010, before all 20 episodes of the first season have even aired on TV.

Please let them know you want full seasons and not half seasons on DVD by not purchasing this.

I cant really write a review of season one yet because it's not done airing but from what little we've seen so far it looks promising. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and hopefully the entire season on one reasonably priced dvd set.

This halfseason release is an insult to Stargate fans

Post Season 1 Edit: Looks like they listened to angry fans, or who knows maybe it was their plan all along, but they released the entire season on DVD and it's available for less than $40 here on Amazon.

This show surprised me in a good way at the half-season finale, "Justice". Before that point the show usually had all the excitement of watching a glacier melt. But that episode was pretty ballsy, and gave some hope that the series really is different from other Stargate shows. I enjoyed the previous shows for what they were, but the formula needs shaking up.

But this nonsense the sales idiots came up with -- "Hey let's jedi mind-trick everybody into thinking half seasons are actually full seasons, and charge them full season prices" -- is just sad. ~$40 for a half season is $80 per season guys, and people aren't even paying that for shows that have proved themselves far superior. (Despite the stylistic overtures, so far this show is not even close to BSG when it was at its best. Then again, neither was the BSG finale, but you get the idea.)

Apologies to those who believe you can't review a product without owning it -- but I'm sorry, if you own this set at this price, *you* have been pwned. I did watch every episode when they aired, but don't own the set -- and won't, until somebody at MGM realizes that lowering, not raising, prices in a recession will increase sales. Of course I can't comment on the extras, but there aren't any extras that could possibly make this a good deal.

So here's my suggestion to MGM: go over the minutes of whatever "How can we screw customers?" meeting in which it was decided to try this approach for SGU DVD/Blu-Ray sales. Pull the name of the guy who suggested it. And then send him back to Wendy's or McDonalds where he belongs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much for too little December 6, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I really wish studios would stop this obnoxious habit of releasing "half" seasons at full price. Yeah, I can understand that this release will tide fans over until the series resumes in 2010, but $70 for 10 episodes on the Blu-ray is excessive. And of course there's always the possibility that there will be a full season set released at some point for a double-dip later on. Some credit is due for including high-res audio.

As far as the series is concerned, it has possibilities, but I struggle to find any of the characters likable (except for Eli, who's clearly there to appeal to the nerd herd) and the stories have little action of consequence. The show is suffering an identity crisis as it doesn't know whether to be Battlestar Galactica (big shoes to fill) or a soap opera.

I think I'll sit this one out for the moment and see what happens next!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware February 10, 2010
Format:DVD
I refuse to buy a season of a show that does not contain the whole season. This is, at least, the second syfy series that they have packaged this way. Please let them know that this is an unacceptable practice by NOT buying this product. To add insult to injury, they are charging "full" price for only ten episodes. As I can buy a full season of just about any other show (including other Stargate franchises) I will be spending my money elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please do not buy this! February 2, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Why do these studios keep trying to rip us off? This is half of a season, so to get the whole season you have to make two purchases. That is stupid, so please do not support there decision to rob us.

2.0 out of 5 stars Your Second Cousin's Twice Removed Stargate February 16, 2010
By Thales
Format:DVD
This is not your Father's Stargate. This is your Uncle's Stargate, the one that drinks a lot and has dodgy taste in television programmes. SGU desperately wants to be the new Cool Kid on the SciFi block and sit with BSG and Firefly at the Cool Kids table, but unfortunately it's stuck in the corner smelling slightly of wee and wearing the season before last clothes.

It's a very dark show due to there being no lightbulbs, and gritty in that way where you find eggshells in your omelette; unpleasant and you won't be leaving a tip. Cleverly the characters were created from off-cuts from fishing about the bargain bins of Writers R Us, which saved hours of time for both writers and the viewers in knowing how the characters will react to finding out that they're almost out of Air, Water, and Hair Products. The menfolk spend their time fighting among themselves over the womenfolk, and the womenfolk spend their time having showers. But in space.* Riveting stuff.

*Except when they use the Magical Ruby Stones to nip back to Earth to pick up a shandy and a packet of crisps and to yell at their agents.

However this show gets an extra star because as far as I remember they've never beaten a puppy and I'm hoping Carlyle will turn up in a kilt and bottle the entire crew.

Perfect opportunity to wait!
Well, hopefully ABC will learn from this marketing debacle. It is now at #781 on the bestsellers list and falling like a stone. A huge percentage of sales for any video release is typically made in the first week. Some place a warehouse is stuffed full of unsold merchandise.

Don't you think it to be provocative to sell half season for the price...
Yes, I have just cancelled my amazon order because I don't want half a season at full price.
