Format: Paperback
'Good' sums up this book quite well. It is a comprehensive guide to every episode, and includes character/actor profiles and short interview pieces. However, it is struck by the curse of the official companion: It is neccessarily bland, unable to make negative comments on anything and required to support the view of the producers and the network in glossing over Michael Shanks' departure and other points. Essentially little more than a good episode guide, I would reccomend instead Keith Toppings' unofficial rival book.

Superb book. It combines reviews of each episode from the first two series and comments from the cast and crew to go along with the episode. There are actor interviews and profiles and artwork of the main episodes. There's even how they make the costumes and special effects. Can't wait for the next volume due out next year. No SG-1 fan can be witout this book!

I'm a fairly new fan to the Stargate phenomenon so "The Illustrated Companion Volume 1" was a really interesting read. The episode synopses were, maybe, a little too brief, but the extra information added -the interviews and the behind-the-scenes facts of each episode, made it very enjoyable. The book also has profiles on the characters and gives a brief account of the actors that play them. This is a `must have' for any Stargate fan and I've already placed my order for the eagerly awaited "Volume 2".

Having been stupid enough to miss the whole of the first series and frustrated that it wasn't available on DVD, this book filled in most of the gaps. It also gives loads and loads of background info on the making of sg-1. Well worth every penny. Can't wait for the next volume...

Format: Paperback
As Matt from Surrey said, there could have been a lot of extra stuff in this. I was expecting a few pages on each episode and an analysis/review. To be honest I was expecting something along the lines of 'Slayer' (Keith Topping's Buffy guide), instead I got this. Not bad but nowhere near the 'Watchers Guide' standard!

A gem of a book if you like to keep track of the order of events and links between episodes. Any avid fan knows that with the repeat episodes running alongside current storylines it can get a little confusing. This book gives outlines of episodes without ruining the plot. I can't wait for book number two!

As a Stargate fan, it is always hard to know which shows I've watched and what they were about, and so when I bought this book it was a refreshing change to reminisce about all the shows I had forgotten about, what had happened in them and to get some background information on the show and behind the scenes! Each show is summarised, you have comments from the cast and crew, plus there are cool photos to look at of the different shows! And to be honest, I'm not sure if I can wait until the release of the second book!
