Stargate SG-1 Season 6 Boxed Set
The biggest change for Stargate SG-1's sixth season was its move to the Sci-Fi Channel. Financial rescue or genre haven from cancellation? Whatever the behind-the-scenes politics, the departure of Daniel Jackson (actor Michael Shanks) the previous year most certainly contributed to the need to run a tighter ship somewhere. With the addition of his replacement, Jonas Quinn, the new show dynamic (hinted at by the new title theme) meant far more convolutedly involved story arcs and less individual focus. One of very few solo spotlights came from Christopher Judge writing his own show, when "The Changeling" saw Teal'c act out a life as a fireman. One reason for its being a fan favorite was the cameo from still-alive-after-all Daniel Jackson. There'd be several more through the year, culminating in a finale that relied on how much attention you'd been paying to that all-important back-story. Other kooky cameos included Dean Stockwell in one of the many spotlights on the energy resource n'quadria, Ian Buchanan as one of the devilish Replicators (and hopefully the end of that plotline), and regular spots from John DeLancie, Ronny Cox, and Tom McBeath as the Earth-bound series bad guys. More pertinently, we also saw The X-Files' Byers (Bruce Harwood) as a scientist involved with the Antarctic Gate. Lest we forget, there are other portals on Earth. Is that an already planned spin-off on the horizon? --Paul Tonks

It's got comedy from Jack as he handles tough situations with grace and jokes. It's got drama. It's got action. It's just good all around entertainment.
I didn't watch this show when it originally aired. I am seeing it for the first time now, in 2016. That's significant because there have been a lot of changes in television over the past 15 years that could have easily made this 1990's show outdated and unwatchable. Namely the advent of HDTV. Sci Fi in HD is a different experience than Sci Fi in standard definition.
I am happy to say that Stargate SG-1 works despite being a 4:3 aspect ratio (bars on the sides) standard definition presentation. The thing about sci fi is that everything centers around a good story. If you have a good story, older special effects don't matter. That's why the original Star Trek series is still watchable despite the low quality effects and Shatner's acting.
SG1 is a great story. It's fun. It's entertaining. And it takes Gene Roddenberry's approach to sci fi, which is that the story should be about the people, not about the science. The science should be a plot element, not the entire story. That's what made Star Trek work, and it's what makes SG1 work. SG-1 goes pretty light on actual science with all the spaceships that look like Egyptian pyramids, for example. But that makes the story fun.
Each episode is about the people interacting with other species or other branches of humanity. The result is that the cast learns about itself and what it means to be human. Just like Star Trek had Spock and Data and 7 of 9 type characters who were emotionless people that served to highlight the humanity in the rest of the cast, Stargate has T'ealc who's character serves a similar purpose.
It's a very entertaining show and you don't have to have enjoyed it when it originally aired to pick it up and start liking it now.
Watching it on the Amazon FireStick I find the video quality to be good. Again, it's standard definition. There is nothing they can do to increase the resolution. But the color depth is good. The clarity is good for SD.
Season six wrought many changes, as Michael Shanks went on hiatus, causing his character, that of Dr. Daniel Jackson, to miss most of the season, for reasons defined in season five. Instead, the character Jonas Quinn, played by Corin Nemec and previously introduced in season five, would play an expanded role, in effect filling the void created by the absence, for the most part, of Dr. Daniel Jackson. While some viewers had a problem with this, I did not, though it changed the dynamics on the Star gate SG-1 team, as the character of Jonas Quinn is quite different from that of Dr. Daniel Jackson.
Notwithstanding this major change, season six still rocked, and I was riveted from beginning to end. It was interesting to see that the insidious Replicators were still on the loose in the galaxy and creating havoc. Some things never change. All I can say is that I am hooked and binge watching season after season.
