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....!!!

Most TV shows spun off from movies are uninvolving and uninteresting ("Blade," anyone?), and hopefully die and are forgotten.

That wasn't the case with the spinoff of the 1995 movie "Stargate," an okay science fiction movie that spawned an excellent television series, "Stargate SG-1." The first season is not nearly as brilliant as the ones that followed it, but it's a welcome change from distant space operas -- excellent writing, acting, and a sense of humor about itself and its characters.

The Stargate has been inactive for a year -- until it is activated, and a bunch of Egyptian-styled warriors come through and kidnap a young officer. General Hammond (Don S. Davis) pulls Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) out of retirement to learn what really happened on the planet of Abydos, and where these mysterious aliens have come from.

O'Neill and a small team go to Abydos and find Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) who has been learning about a vast network of Stargates over the past year. But when Daniel's wife Sha're and brother-in-law Skaara are abducted by the same warriors, O'Neill, Jackson and Air Force scientist Sam Carter (Amanda Tapping) use the Stargate to venture to where they're being kept.

What they find is an alien race who inhabits human hosts, the Goa'uld, and their ruthless slave warriors, the Jaffa. Carter, O'Neill and Jackson are captured by the powerful Apophis -- but to escape, they must have the help of an unlikely ally: Teal'c (Christopher Judge), Apophis' First Prime. Since Earth has now annoyed the Goa'uld, several exploration teams are formed to go through the Stargate and find weapons and allies.

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.

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.
