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!

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.
