Like the very best of SF TV, Stargate SG-1 began very simply. Of course it had the benefit of a movie preceding it--in which the alternate universe, its rules and its characters were largely established--so this premiere season was therefore able to concentrate on good storytelling.

In 1997 not every new show was obsessed with securing a syndication-guaranteed franchise (same goes for Buffy debuting the same year), instead one-off episodes were the way of things, exploring interesting scenarios and conundrums. Naturally there were allusions to the feature film, but most were subtle and inspired. For example, a trip to retrieve the trapped professor who'd worked on the Gate decades ago was an unusual way of tying up loose ends. Some groundwork was laid for continuation should the show be renewed into an ongoing series. Knowing that these elements were pure wishful thinking at the time makes the tapestry of System Lords and the interlinks with our history and mythology all the more enjoyable in revisiting the show from its beginnings. With Richard Dean Anderson, leading the team in a far more charismatic and empathetic way than Kurt Russell in the movie, the series also benefited from some spot-on casting that instantly won audiences over. Special effects and use of studio sets may be less dazzling in these initial shows, but its solid grounding in old-fashioned SF won for the show a loyal audience. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

The complete first season of the popular space opera. In 'Children of the Gods - The Next Mission' the SG-1 team discover a host of new Stargates and a deadly enemy on the planet Chulak. 'The Nox' sees members of the SG-1 team killed in an ambush and then brought back to life by the peace-loving Nox. 'Bloodlines' has Teal'c face a dilemma when he returns to Chulak to save his son, Rya'c, from the Goa'ulds. 'The Broca Divide' finds Teal'c and Jackson racing to find the antidote to a virus which has infected the rest of the team and caused them to regress to the level of savages. 'The First Commandment' sees the SG1 team sent on the trail of the missing SG-9 crew, whose leader has become a power-mad despot after being welcomed as a god on another world. In 'The Enemy Within' a Goa'uld larvae invades Kawalsky's brain in the hope of finding a passage through the Stargate. 'Emancipation' finds Carter battling for women's rights on the hostile planet of Simarka. 'Brief Candle' has Colonel O'Neill begin to age rapidly after being seduced by the beautiful Kynthia on the planet Argos. 'Thor's Hammer' sees Carter and Daniel attempt to rescue Teal'c and O'Neill from the underground lair of the evil Unas. In 'The Torment of Tantalus' Jackson discovers that a young professor who was sucked into the Stargate back in 1945 is still alive and trapped in a decaying fortress. The SG-1 team are then joined by the man's now elderly fiancée in their attempt to rescue him. 'Cold Lazarus' finds O'Neill replaced by a doppelganger, who leads the SG-1 team back to Earth to look for O'Neill's son - can the real O'Neill stop him in time? 'Fire and Water' has the SG-1 team encounter the last survivor of an aquatic race. 'Hathor' sees the male members of the team seduced by the evil Gou'ald, Hathor, who uses them in her bid for world domination. It is therefore left to Samantha Carter and the women of SG-1 to save the day. In 'Singularity' the returned Carter forges a strong bond with a little girl she has rescued from a planetary plague and is therefore shocked to discover that the child is carrying a time bomb planted by the Goa'uld. 'Cor-Ai' finds Teal'c placed on trial for murder in Chartago after he is recognised as former head Jaffa to the Goa'uld Apothis. 'Enigma' has the SG-1 team attempt to rescue the inhabitants of Tollan, whose legendary knowledge must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. 'Solitudes' sees Carter and a wounded O'Neill stranded on an ice world. In 'Tin Man' the team find that their minds and spirits have been transferred to the bodies of androids. 'There But For the Grace of God' finds Jackson transported to another dimension, where he attempts to save an alternate Earth from the same fate that befell his own planet. 'Politics' has Daniel Jackson raise warnings of an imminent Gou'ald invasion, while General Hammond makes moves to have the SG1 team disbanded. Finally, 'Within the Serpent's Grasp' sees the SG-1 team disobeying orders in an attempt to repel the Gou'ald.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the complete series one.... 21 Nov 2002
By Jackal
As a big fan of Stargate SG-1, I was really pleased to see that finally, the good people at MGM decided on producing this set which includes all of season 1, and not just the best bits. Many times i was tempted to buy the complete set from America, which ofcourse would have meant getting a region 1 dvd player, but its here....and its great! The first season after the film is in my mind, one of the best, it allows us to understand the characters and there development, and does very well in following on where the film left off. I would really love to give this set 5 stars but unfortunaely i can't. The epipsodes themselves are great, presented in dolby digital and widescreen, but there is a real lack of extras, well to be frank, there is none. Despite this, its a must for any Stargate fan, buy it now....!!!

I have been patiently holding off buying individual dvds of sg1 for years, waiting for the individual series' to come out as a whole. Well, I finally got my hands on it, and all I can say is, it was a FANTASTIC 15 hours! It was so good to see the first episodes, and compare the characters. Despite it being the first season of a show the writing is superb and the acting even better. A great continuation from the film, its funny, adventurous, thrilling and touching! Richard Dean Anderson is one of the strongest male leads in a sci fi show I have seen for a while, and the rest of the team do him a great credit. If you are a fan of the show this is a MUST! If not, then I would still recommend this item as a fantatic introduction to one of the best action/adventure shows (let alone sci fi) around. OK, so the lack of extras IS dissappointing, but they will come with later seasons. Buy it, buy it now, adventure awaits on the other side of the Stargate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start, Great Finish! 17 April 2002
By A Customer
Although this DVD only has 4 of the episodes from Season 1, it does make up for this by including the special uncut version of the pilot. This alone makes it worth buying as the video release was different. There are many extra scenes, including a touching scene at Jack's home where Jack and Daniel talk about the recently captured Sha're. Another scene included shows Sha're's possession in it's entirety. Putting aside the graphic, full-frontal nudity, this scene is so shocking, it's great. I feel that this version is the definitive version as without the extra scenes, the episode doesn't work. As for the other episodes, they are great and action-packed too.

Episode quality...
Well, it's the season where it all began. For the most part the season is consistent in quality. It's not brilliant, but it's certainly not bad. A few episodes drag in the early part of the season but most strike a nice balance of watchableness. However, the season starts to kick into a higher gear in the last five episodes. "Solitudes" is a very enjoyable episode, and a welcome break from yet another episode in Canadian woods (a problem which blights Stargate SG-1). More importantly it provides some interesting character interaction and a genuinely surprising outcome. The episodes that follow take on a stronger sci-fi theme, a move which benefits the show greatly. Stories start dealing with age-old sci-fi themes of "Who am I?", mirror universes and alien invasions.
Sadly, the final batch of episodes is positively derailed by a dreaded clipshow, which is even more tedious if you've just watched the episodes recently on DVD. So, the fast forward button was utilized a lot within this episode. Over the season the writers managed to occasionally give nods towards previous episodes (for example returns of friends and foes) which ultimately for a more rewarding viewing experience, but a clip show is never welcome. But it's not a major problem, as the season gets back on its feet with the season finale.
Overall the season could have done with some bigger arcs, and the "threat" of the government interfering never quite works and gets tired quite quickly. If the government gets Stargate Command shut down or replaced the show is over, and if they don't succeed then the government just looks silly and doesn't become a credible threat.

By E. Grey
Season One of Stargate SG-1 was undoubtedly a mixed bag. I think many if not most fans would agree that S2 and S3 were better. However, mixed bag or not, to call this tiny selection the 'best of' S1 seriously undersells S1. There are only four episodes on this DVD: Children of the Gods (the excellent sequel to the 1994 movie and pilot for the series); There But For The Grace of God (another excellent episode); Politics (a pretty weak clip-show that nevertheless has to be included as it is part of a 4-episode arc) and the outstanding Within The Serpent's Grasp. However, there were many excellent episodes in S1 that are *not* included on this DVD and anyone trying to get a flavour of the first season from this DVD is going to end up feeling a little baffled and short-changed.
For a start, important themes from Children of the Gods are concluded in The Enemy Within which is not included on this disc. Also many episodes which begin far-reaching story arcs continued in later seasons (which are available on DVD) are not included here, leading to more bafflement for the viewer. Quite apart from their value as conveyers of important information about the team, there can be no excuse for not including such excellent episodes as The Nox, The Torment of Tantalus, Bloodlines, Fire & Water, Cor-Ai, Enigma, and Solitudes.
It's true that not every S1 episode was a winner. Some, like Emancipation are downright embarrassing, and Broca Divide, Brief Candle, and The First Commandment also have their less than stellar moments. However, with the exception of Emancipation, there isn't a single S1 episode that doesn't have *some* merit; something that can't be necessarily be said about some S4 and S5 episodes which are being granted a DVD release.
