From Amazon.co.uk

The 1994 film Stargate was originally intended as the start of a franchise, but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted celebrating their Independence Day. Episodic TV treatment was the natural next step. In the roles of Colonel Jack O'Neill and Dr. Daniel Jackson respectively are Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks. They're joined by Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and guilt-stricken former alien baddie Teal'c (Christopher Judge) to form the teacher's pet primary unit SG-1 With a seemingly endless network of Stargates found to exist on planets all across the known universe, their mission is to make first contact with as many friendly races as possible. Chasing their heels at almost every turn are the "overlord" Goa'uld--the ancient Egyptian Gods who are none too chummy after the events of the original film. The welcome notion of a continued plot thread sees offshoots that follow the reincarnation of Daniel's wife, Sam's father literally joining a renegade faction of the Goa'uld, and Jack in an unending quest to out-sarcasm everyone. There's something of The Time Tunnel to the show's premise, but amid a dearth of derivative look-a-likes, Stargate has held its own with stories that put the science fiction back into TV sci-fi.

On this DVD: "Scorched Earth" presents the kind of moral dilemma Star Trek: The Next Generation often explored. The SG-1 team aren't exactly hampered by a Prime Directive, but searching questions are asked when they discover two civilisations attempting to colonise a world simultaneously. This is a great episode for seeing the friends disagree over personal principles, and features some stunning FX. "Beneath the Surface" refers to several things at once. The team are literally in an underground environment; enforced slave labour is taking place without the general government's knowledge; memories have been suppressed. But most tellingly for this season's story arc, Jack and Sam are free to express their secret love for one another.

"Point of No Return" is light relief after several episodes of angst and continuity. Willie Garson guest stars as Martin, a worryingly well-informed conspiracy theorist. It's a chance for the team to interact with the real world for a change and leads to several hotel room luxuries, such as the sci-fi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still for Jack and a vibrating bed for Teal'c! "Tangent" puts Jack and Teal'c in the worst kind of danger. Two years on from the capture of Goa'uld gliders (The Serpent's Lair), Earth scientists have developed their own. It all goes horribly wrong through a trap laid by old nemesis Apophis, and strands the two men in space with out enough oxygen to reach safe harbour. --Paul Tonks

Format: VHS Tape
The first of these episodes sees the SG1 team get armbands from the Tok'ra which should enhance their natural abilities. IT WORKS !! Only Teal'c is unaffected, Daniel can read really quickly, Sam can invent really quickly, and Jack can ....?.... Oh, yes..... run really quickly. The humour is again great and you see the team for the first time involved in a brawl, in a bar, with humans (Note, Daniel does not like being called weak!!).The story progresses and we find out that - as ever - the story the Tok'ra have given to the team is not quite accurate ! They have to try and destroy a new Goa'uld ship. During the ultimate destroying and escaping there is a lovely touching moment where Jack will not leave a stranded Sam (enhancing the Jack/Sam will they/won't they relationship storyline {this episode incidently is used to great effect in a series five offering, as a "flashback episode"}).
The second offering is OK, personally I feel that sometimes these Goa'uld biased stories get a bit boring when they don't actually help the story arc. Teal'c (Christopher Judge) has a nice main role and it is good to see some of the serious Jaffa exterior give way due to his past love turning up when least expected. A pleasant story not without a bit of suprise.

Format: DVD
This disc contains the first four episodes from the second series of sg1. The first thing that grabbed my attention was that the episodes are all presented in anamorphic widescreen. The picture is not going to win any awards though. It is variable in quality but this is due to the lower production values of TV, rather than a poor transfer. Indeed, it far surpasses the apalling video picture, as it should. The sound is also not as expansive as you'd expect from a new film. But unlike videotape you can crank up the volume without any distortion and enjoy a more film-like experience. The first episode continues directly on from the cliffhanger left at the end of the first series. The SG1 team are stuck on a Goa'uld warship headed for Earth. They are captured and have to race against time to save the entire planet. The second episode finds our heroes back on stargate duty and right in the thick of the action. Carter is infected with a Goa'uld with unexpected results. This and the third episode are great examples of how SG1 is different from many other TV shows. "In the line of duty" and "Prisoners", where the team are banished to a penal colony, result in unexpected and not always postive outcomes. The fourth is the weakest of the lot but still has plenty to offer. In "The gamekeeper" they are trapped in a virtual world where Daniel and O'neill are forced to relive pivotal moments in their lives.
All the actors are clearly comfortable in their roles and the willingness to show the heroes as less than perfect shines through in all the episodes. As long as they can keep this standard up we have a lot to look forward to.

Season three is by far the best season so far and with episodes like "Forever in a day" on a later DVD it just gets better and better. Season Four has just finished on Sky and I would watch every episode of all the seasons again and again Brilliant performances by all the cast especially Richard Dean Anderson who is brilliant in the role of Jack O'neill. The best episode on this DVD is "Point of view". Will SG1 save the alternate Earth from the Gou'alds. Watch and see.

A great DVD for any Stargate SG-1 fan. Episodes contain humour, angst, action... everything that sums up this fantastic show.
"Beneath the Surface" is my favourite, following on from the previous volume's "Divide and Conquer." Even though the team's memories have been altered, not even that can prevent Carter and O'Neill from expressing feelings for each other, without the restrictions of the Air Force regulations. Even if you're not a fan of the pairing, you have to be heartless not to feel something for them.
"Point of No Return" is another great episode, with some excellent scenes between Richard Dean Anderson (O'Neill) and guest star Willie Carson, who plays the conspiracy nut Martin. There are some classic scenes here, including Teal'c trying to blend in while out on Earth, and 'the baddies' trying to outsmart Daniel and Carter.
"Scorched Earth" and "Tangent" are both visually stunning episodes, and are also well worth a look.

Format: DVD
I was enticed into the world of SG-1 by my sister who has 20 stargate DVDs and counting!! This, however is my favourite volume out of all them (apart from volume 1 - the return of SG-1). It has a varied collection of episodes, including the accidental strengthening of Apophys' army and power over the Goa-uld community with the help of a re-programmed mine. An episode looking at the future of SG-1 in 2010, when the Goa'uld have been defeated and a clean community has been produced, however, is it a plot to rid of all humans?
The Stargate series has intrigued me to a level where I can't get enough of it. Personally, I didn't think much of the film, but the following series has taken it so much further, with the help of a little humour - from Richard Dean Anderson (plays-Colonel Jack O'Neill). I recommend you at least watch a few of the episodes on either this DVD or volume 1 which shows a threat to our own world, Earth.
A well thought out series which should have done a lot better!
