Four more episodes from the third season of the popular sci-fi series. In 'Learning Curve', Jack O'Neill disobeys orders when he attempts to save the twelve-year-old Merrin from being used by the Orbanians for memory storage. 'Point of View' sees SG1 visited by alternative versions of Carter and Kawalsky, who come from a parallel universe Earth which has been taken over by the Goa'uld and desperately need help to repel the invaders. In 'Deadman's Switch', the SG1 crew are captured by a bounty hunter while on a routine exploration, and forced to assist in the capture of Kel'tar, a Goa'uld wanted by evil System Lord Sokar. 'Demons' sees the team mistaken for demons when they encounter a medieval civilisation; their only hope of escaping with their lives lies with the local friar, Simon, whom they must convince of their good intentions.
The 1994 movie Stargate was originally intended as the start of a franchise but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted celebrating their Independence Day. Episodic TV treatment was the natural next step. In the roles of Colonel Jack O'Neill and Dr Daniel Jackson respectively are Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks. They're joined by Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and guilt-stricken former alien baddie Teal'c (Christopher Judge) to form the teacher's pet primary unit SG-1. With a seemingly endless network of Stargates found to exist on planets all across the known universe, their mission is to make first contact with as many friendly races as possible. Chasing their heels at almost every turn are the "overlord" Goa'uld--the ancient Egyptian Gods who are none too chummy after the events of the original film. The welcome notion of a continued plot thread sees offshoots that follow the reincarnation of Daniel's wife, Sam's father literally joining a renegade faction of the Goa'uld, and Jack in an unending quest to out-sarcasm everyone. There's something of The Time Tunnel to the show's premise but amid a dearth of derivative look-a-likes, Stargate has held its own with stories that put the science fiction back into TV sci-fi. --Paul Tonks
On this DVD: On planet Orban, Daniel Jackson is intrigued by a population's scientific advances over only a few years. An exchange of knowledge is agreed and the precise "Learning Curve" of their children is revealed. Still recalling the original movie, O'Neill is concerned for the siblings because of the loss of his son. Some more continuity tests the memory back to the episode "There But For the Grace of God", when Jackson discovered a dimensional mirror. Here, in "Point of View", it allows the Sam Carter and Major Kawalsky from an alternate reality to shelter from their Goa'uld threat. The problem being that Sam's married to Jack in her reality, and Kawalsky's dead in ours! The show is blessed with a star turn from Flash Gordon himself in "Deadman Switch" when Sam J Jones guests as Aris Boch, an alien bounty hunter working for the Goa'uld. Lastly, in "Demons" some serious lambasting of organised religion occurs in a storyline concerning a medieval Christian village that's being terrorised by a giant Goa'uld servant creature. This episode both brings to light and questions each of the principal characters' beliefs.
As well as trailers for the next volume, this disc includes an interview with Amanda Tapping on her character, Samantha Carter. There's also a featurette on the general workings of the show called "Producing the Stargate". --Paul TonksSee all Product Description

All the actors are clearly comfortable in their roles and the willingness to show the heroes as less than perfect shines through in all the episodes. As long as they can keep this standard up we have a lot to look forward to.
"Window of Opportunity" - a fun "Groundhog Day" romp with O'Neill and Teal'c caught in a time loop and having to live the same day over and over again. There are some very funny scenes with some great comic timing displayed by Richard Dean Anderson (O'Neill) and Christopher Judge (Teal'c).
"Watergate" - not as exciting as some "Stargate" episodes but with very impressive special effects, a storyline reminiscent of James Cameron's "The Abyss", and a fine guest starring role for Marina Sirtis.
"The First Ones" - an excellent episode in every way written by the multi-talented Peter DeLuise with a wonderful performance by Dion Johnstone as the Unas 'Chaka' who abducts Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks). An episode that is understandably very popular with fans and has already spawned an equally excellent sequel. The DVD is worth buying for this episode alone.
The audio commentaries by the directors are also very interesting and full of fascinating insights into the making of the show.
