Product Description

A boxed set of Stargate SG-1 Season 7

A gradual shift in overall style, character homecomings and departures, and evolving on- and off-screen roles for the major players are among the attractions of the seventh season of Stargate SG-1. Spread out over five discs, these 21 episodes are ample indication that changes notwithstanding--and admittedly, not all of them are for the better--the series remains arguably the best-made, most compelling sci-fi program on television.

Perhaps most noticeable is the reduced role of star Richard Dean Anderson, who opted to limit his number of trips to Vancouver, where Stargate SG-1 is filmed. But that's not a bad thing. The show's ability to poke fun at itself has always been a strong suit, and while Anderson still brings a welcome sense of humor to his portrayal of wiseacre and loose cannon Col. Jack O'Neill, his act is getting a little smug by now. What's more, the other principal cast members have taken up the slack, both behind and in front of the camera: Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson, who rejoins the cast in episode 1) wrote one episode and co-wrote another; Christopher Judge (Teal'c) wrote one as well; Amanda Tapping (Lt. Col. Samatha Carter) directed episode 19, "Resurrection"; and even Corin Nemec (Jonas Quinn, who appears in just a few episodes) contributed one story.

The seventh season also finds the series somewhat more earthbound than in the past; indeed, there are episodes in which the Stargate (the "wormhole" our heroes use to travel to different worlds) doesn't appear at all. On balance, the stories are more personal, and more political--especially the final two, with the newly elected U.S. President (William Devane) struggling to decide the fate of the Stargate program (and, of course, the fate of the entire known universe as well!). And then there's the ultimate villain, Anubis, who makes perennial nemeses the Goa'uld (of which Anubis is one... sort of) look tame. He's a combination of Star Wars' Darth Vader and evil Emperor, but hey, at least these guys borrow from the best.

Stargate SG-1's production values remain first-rate. The bonus DVD features are also much better than they once were, with audio commentary (mainly by directors and writers) for every episode, as well as director profiles and "Beyond the Gate" featurettes focusing on individual characters. --Sam Graham

Looking back on the seventh season of "Stargate SG-1" it seems clear that the show was caught between the idea that this was the final season and an impulse to retool the series to keep in going into an eighth season. In short, I think if they knew then what they know now they would have done things differently, especially with the question of Richard Dean Anderson's status for season nine. When the new president made Dr. Elizabeth Weir (Jessica Steen) the new civilian head of the Stargate project that had a lot of interesting possibilities, both because of her gender and because she had an extensive background in diplomatic negotiations. But the two-part "Lost City" that ends this season becomes more about stopping Anubis from destroying the Earth than retooling the show and Weir is going to end up on "Stargate: Atlantis" (to be played by Torri Higginson). There is a lot that happens in those last three episodes, when President Hayes (William Devane) takes office and Anubis attacks, with the potential for more all sorts of interesting ramifications, more so than with what happens when the season starts.

That is when Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) returns from being an ascended being, albeit on an alien world without his memory ("Fallen"). This required getting rid of Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec) to get the old gang back together again, which happens when Anubis download Jonas' memory and the Goa'uld attack Kelowna ("Homecoming"). Wisely, this is not the last appearance of Jonas for the season ("Fallout") as he becomes another one of recurring guest characters that are a major strength of the series.

Stargate fans old and new hail Season 7 as the most anticipated season yet. The return of Dr. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) allows for a common nostalgic feeling among the shows viewers. Leaving after Season 5, his replacement Jonas Quinn (Corin Nemec, Season 6) added to the adventure, but left many SG-1 fans calling Season 6 "boring" and "tame". Diehard SG-1 fans acknowledge Season 6 adventures, but look to Season 7 as a new beginning.

On the list of favorites, Season 7 saw the greatest changes and challenges ever to be seen in the SG-1 universe. Seasons 1 and 2 offered adventures leading up to the defeat of Apophis, one of the greatest threats SG-1 ever faced. Season 7 offers a new, long awaited nemesis, Anubis, a dark and very diabolical Gou'ald, whom for his past transgressions, was cast out of the "High Council of System Lords" and into exile. Mid-Season, SG-1 has been given hints toward the evils Anubis has been cooking up while in his exile. These evils are confirmed at the end of the season, which allow for SG-1 fans old and new to enjoy some well deserved butt kicking, which hasn't been seen for several seasons, but also allow for the writers to set a platform for Season 8 and new franchise, SG-Atlantis. Also, season 7 sees the promotion of General Hammond (Don S. Davis) and then end of Dr. Janet Frasier (Teryl Rothery).

Overall, Season 7 is plentiful in story, and if you missed an episode on Sci-Fi, you missed too much. Attention to detail on-screen and in story is phenomenal, and I would recommend to any new SG-1 fans to purchase this season and enjoy! And of course to old SG-1 Fans, if you skipped Season 6, don't worry; you can get right back on track with Season 7 and the return Michael Shanks.

Thanks for reading. Hope this helps in your decision to buy!

I think there is sufficient commentary on the quality of the episodes in this series. I don't need to add to any of that. Rather, I want to comment on the difficulties several have had with respect to a defect in the fifth disk in the set. I too received a bad set. The last episode on disk 5 failed to play. I had been hesitating buying the set because of previous postings, but when it was "re-released" at a much lower price, I figured the issue was resolved. Well, I was wrong. That's the bad news.

Now for the good news. As soon as I discovered the problem, I went to the Amazon customer service page and reported the problem. I indicated the disk was bad (defective), and Amazon immediately provided postage-paid labels to send back the faulty disks. Prior to my mailing back the set, I received an email saying they were sending a new set. Three days later, I had the new set, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!!

So the disparaging comments against Amazon w.r.t. this issue are patently unfair. Their customer service department bent over backwards to resolve the problem quickly, and they succeeded. The problem, apparently, was with Sony Entertainment. I feel for the people who had multiple bad experiences in the past, but Amazon was not at fault.

Have gotten two copies of this set and both disc fives had flaws that made most of the disc unreadable for my DVD player. Contacted Sony for replacement.

Seasons One through Five were remarkably uniform, each season introducing new characters and developing storylines, but not really bringing about much in the way of major changes. Season Six was different because of the single-season departure of Michael Shanks. But Season Seven is the season where things were, as Elvis would say, all shook up.

For many fans the most painful moment in the season was the shocking and unanticipated death of Dr. Janet Fraiser, played by Teryl Rothery. Along with Tony Amendola (Master Bra'tac) and Carmen Argenziano (Jacob Carter/Selmak), Rothery was the most important non-opening credits actor in the entire run of the show, appearing prominently in several dozen episodes. She has been an extraordinarily busy actress, showing up on virtually every show ever made in Vancouver (off the top of my head I remember her in episodes of DEAD LIKE ME, THE X-FILES, and SMALLVILLE), but the show she is most closely identified with is STARGATE SG-1. Her death outraged and disturbed a host of fans. The most I can say about her death is that it helped correct one of the great shortcomings of STARGATE: how safe the characters all were. One of the things that BUFFY brought to genre television was the practice of making the world unsafe for characters. The moment when Angelus breaks Jenny Calendar's neck was one of the most shocking scenes I had ever seen. Until then, all major characters on all shows were more or less protected and safe. There over a dozen major deaths in BUFFY and ANGEL, and many fantasy and Sci-fi shows followed its example. Shows are simply more compelling when there is a real threat that major characters will die, and the very best shows are not afraid to have a body count (witness Season Two of VERONICA MARS).
