Product Description

The complete second season of the popular space opera. In 'The Serpent's Lair' the SG-1 team find themselves trapped in a Goa'uld warship as it makes a deadly attack on Earth. 'In the Line of Duty' has Carter's body play host to a Goa'uld interloper. Can the parasite be vanquished without Carter also coming to harm? 'Prisoners' sees the SG-1 team falsely convicted of being accessories to murder and imprisoned in a draconian penal colony. 'The Gamekeeper' finds the team coerced into a bizarre virtual reality game, in which they are forced to relive the most significant moments of their lives. In 'Need' Jackson saves a beautiful princess' life, but in doing so causes the imprisonment of the rest of his team. 'Thor's Chariot' has the team forced to defend Cimmeria from a hostile attack, even though they themselves have knocked out the planet's defence systems. 'Message in a Bottle' sees O'Neill infected by an alien organism. 'Family' finds the SG-1 team embarking on a rescue mission when Teal'c's son Rya'c is kidnapped and ferried away to Chulak. In 'Secrets' the Stargate project is placed at risk by a reporter who threatens to reveal all regarding the secret portal. 'Bane' sees Teal'c mutate into a destructive monster after being stung by a giant insect. 'Spirits' has O'Neill sent to investigate when the SG-1 team are kidnapped on a planet populated by mystics and invisible spirits. 'The Tok'ra (Part 1)' finds Carter recruiting her ailing father for a mission to seek out the Goa'uld, unaware of the peril that lies in wait for them. In 'The Tok'ra (Part 2)' one of the Tok'ra is permitted to inhabit the body of Carter's dying father in order to save the race, just as the Gou'ald launch an attack. 'Touchstone' sees the SG-1 team accused of stealing a climate-controlling touchstone from the planet Madrona. 'A Matter of Time' has the Earth threatened by a powerful black hole. 'The Fifth Race' finds O'Neill's brain infiltrated by an intelligent force after he uses an alien viewing device. In 'Serpent's Song' the SG-1 team are offered a pact by their mortal enemy Apophis, who is on the run from the Gou'ald and in need of a new body. 'Holiday' sees Jackson forced into swapping his body with a dying alien intent on escaping to Earth. 'One False Step' has the SG-1 team accidentally cause an entire alien race to become infected with a deadly plague. 'Show and Tell' finds the SG-1 team tricked into assisting an invisible race who wish to destroy humanity. '1969' sees the Stargate team trying to avoid the bad acid, as well as a suspicious US military command, when they are transported back to America on the eve of Woodstock. Finally, 'Out of Mind' has O'Neill fooled into thinking that he has awoken from a lengthy spell in the cryogenic freezer, when in fact he has been kidnapped by the Goa'uld enemy.


The success of the first year meant that Stargate SG-1's second series could afford to spread its wings. In only the second episode, Carter is temporarily possessed by a good Goa'uld. This immediately allowed for both any amount of quick fix inside knowledge as well as story off-shoots, now that the show was bent on franchise longevity.

There appeared to be information overload (splinter group Tok'ra, Earth's second Gate, Machello, endless Apophis encounters), as the finely interwoven threads of alien histories and inter-relationships were developed. But thankfully, SG-1 never lost sight of the need for great individual stories. There was a planet of Native American Indians; a planet on the edge of a Black Hole; a planet of aliens sensitive to sound. Even a planet run by Dwight Schultz! Better still, they found time to have fun with their universe, too.

"1969" remains one of the best comic romps the series has enjoyed, and is a near-perfect self-contained time-travel story to boot. The team of actors had obviously bonded early on in the first year. It may be a bit of a military faux pas that there is only ever four of them leading every major explorative expedition, but the limited number of principals is actually something else the show has always had in its favour, allowing quality screen time to be spent on each of them from the outset (although Richard Dean Anderson would probably rather not have spent an entire episode impaled by a spike). --Paul Tonks

Colonel Jack (Two L’s) O’Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping), Dr. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) and Teal’c (Christopher Judge) return for a second season of pure Sci-Fi gold in ‘Stargate SG-1 Season 2’. From the cliffhanger finale of Season 1 we find the team, and the planet, in trouble, in the opening episode ‘The Serpent’s Lair’.
We however expect the team to pull through, not because it’s the first episode and it would make the continuation of the series impossible if the main characters were wiped out but because of the amazing character interaction that was set up in Season 1 and brought into Season 2.
From the first season, SG-1 and the SGC have made quiet a few powerful enemies so Season 2 sets about finding the team some allies. In the episode ‘Thor’s Chariot’ we get our first real indication of the might of the Asgard – a species of alien that look very like our stereotypical view of beings from other planets. However, this should not be looked at as a failing as, Stargate SG-1 has time and again tried to bring ‘real life’ into its shows.
The series really begins to come alive with the episodes ‘The Tok’ra (Part 1)’ and ‘The Tok’ra (Part 2)’ when we meet a group of friendly Goa’uld. This friendship puts fun new weapons and gadgets at the team’s disposal and we know that things are about to kick off.
However, alien gadgets are not what really sets Stargate out from the crowded science-fiction marketplace.

Season two is where Stargate SG-1 really began to hit its stride. The strengths were all there in the first season, but the quality of the episodes was rather uneven; the show's second year is a much smoother ride. While season one had a number of classic episodes, season two is really packed full of them.
The season begins by resolving one cliffhanger and ends on another, so it makes most sense watch the box sets in order. If you don't, I doubt you'll be lost - the show is fairly episodic, especially this early on in its run - but it may spoil parts of season one for you. The box set includes a pair of first-season episodes to pad it out (no other extras, sadly) so if you haven't seen season one, "Thor's Hammer" and "Hathor" provide useful backstory for "Thor's Chariot" and the season finale respectively.
Like the first, this year lays a lot of groundwork for later seasons of the show. We learn more about the pasts of the members of SG-1, are introduced to some more of the galaxy's major races, and meet some characters who'll be popping up again years later. The episodes are a good mix of action, moral dilemmas, science fiction, and pure fun. A great year for the show.

Stargate has always been special, as it follows it's own unique path (not just a Star Trek clone), and brilliantly links ancient Egyptian culture to a modern day sci-fi storyline.
With the first season establishing the characters, setting and enemies, it was season two's job to develop those stories and move the series onwards. For the most part, it suceeded.
The season opens with 'The Serpent's Lair', the cliff hanger from season one, where the SG-1 team must stop the Goa'uld from reaching Earth. The next nine episodes, although not terrible, mainly concentrate on character building and finishing off stories started in season one. The two-parter, 'The Tok'ra', is the episode that makes season two really exciting, with new allies and the interesting situation where Carter's father becomes a Tok'ra.
The next episodes are also excellent, for example there is 'The Fifth Race', where O'Neil meets the Asgard, a powerful race who look like the well known 'Greys', the aliens people think they see after an abduction experience. Another good episode is 'A Matter of Time', where the stargate opens up to a world about to be destroyed by a blackhole. Many theories about blackholes are excellently brought into play with this story, such as the slowdown of time. '1969' involves the good old time travelling storyline, but it is actually very good and funny. The season concludes with 'Out of Mind', where the Goa'uld try to trick the SG-1 members into thinking it is 80 years into the future and they have been in stasis.
Overall a good season, paving the way for even greater stories in the next season.

SG1 are back right where we left off from season 1.

Season 2 just makes the show double what it used to be (pardon the pun), introducing more System Lords on par with Apophis (Socar & Heru'ur), and this time Earth actually makes friends worth mentioning - the Tok'ra, who play an instumental role in this and following seasons to come. Also, we get to meet anoher Alien race (briefly) much more powerful than the Goa'uld, called the Asgard, who bare quite a resemblance to the Roswell Greys (which makes me smile at the fact that once again the writers have hit the nail on the head relating Stargate to the real world).

The show does it's usual, going from good to not so good stories, but overall gripping and providing great escapeism, with the season ending on another cliffhanger, again leaving you wanting more.

This is a big improvement on Season 1, and they now have included behind the scenes footage and commentaries. What baffles me is the numbering for each disc. The first disc is "Volume 2" - shouldn't it be "Volume 6" as Season 1 had 5 discs?? And how can an entire Season be 1 volume?? It confuses me more than it confuses fans why we never got to see the Furlings....woops to soon.

Anyway - overall the season is just as good as the first one, if not better. If Stargate SG1 has got your attention, then this is a must buy, because trust me, with each season it just keeps getting better.. If you still aren't sure about the series, then I'd still advise buying it, give it some more time and keep watching it.
