The complete third season of the popular sci-fi series. In 'Into the Fire' the SG1 team are taken prisoner on Hathor's world, and it is left to Hammond and Teal'c to formulate a rescue plan. 'Seth' sees the crew attempting to track down an ancient Goa'uld who is on Earth posing as a religious leader. 'Fair Game' has Carter attempt to expose Thor's double-dealings with the Goa'uld when the latter plan an attack on Earth. 'Legacy' finds the SG1 team forced to make an enormous sacrifice when they discover a deadly parasite. 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 in which Earth has been taken over by the Goa'uld. 'Deadman's Switch' has the SG1 crew captured by a bounty hunter while on a routine mission. 'Demons' finds the team in trouble when they get mistaken for demons by a medieval civilisation. In 'Rules of Engagement' the SG1 team comes to the assistance of a unit it believes to be the missing SG11 squadron. 'Forever in a Day' sees Daniel Jackson reunited with his wife, though this has a damaging effect on his friendship with Teal'c. 'Past and Present' has the SG1 team visit an amnesiac planet, where Jackson becomes attracted to a brilliant and mysterious young woman called Ke'ra. 'Jolinar's Memories' finds the team attempting to rescue Major Carter's father, who has been captured and imprisoned on a moon which has been converted into a literal Hell. In 'The Devil You Know' the SG1 team are tortured for information when they are taken hostage by one of the denizens of Hell. 'Foothold' sees General Hammond conspire with Dr Frasier and a pair of aliens after the entire team is rendered unconscious. 'Pretense' has the SG1 team attend a 'triad' ceremony on the planet Tollan, only to discover that this is a front for the trial of their friend, Skaara. 'Urgo' finds the team implanted with alien spores which enable them to see a strange creature called Urgo, who claims to be their friend. In 'A Hundred Days' Stargate is destroyed by wayward meteors, leaving the SG1 team stranded on the planet Edora with no way back home. 'Shades of Grey' sees O'Neill suspended by Hammond after stealing a weapon from Tollana. 'New Ground' has the SG1 team trigger off a war between two cultures when they visit a new planet. 'Maternal Instinct' finds Daniel attempting to save a mystical child from two warring factions. 'Crystal Skull' sees Daniel disappear after finding a skull which was first discovered by his grandfather many years ago. Finally, in 'Nemesis', O'Neill is kidnapped by the Asgard and taken to a ship full of tiny metallic creatures who are on their way to destroy the planet Earth.
With a well-established framework of back-story and an increasing list of adversaries, the third series of Stargate SG-1 was the place where casual viewers began to fall away. Unless you were taking notes it was becoming ever harder to stay on top of the Goa'uld history and their constant scheming. Fortunately by now a solid fanbase had appeared worldwide--with clubs, conventions and Web sites galore--so the ratings didn't slip even while ancient gods kept appearing and reappearing. Daniel Jackson could always be trusted to illuminate any relevant myth or legend (or find them in five minutes on the internet), while Carter's memory download from last year supplied the necessary ties with the rebellious Tok'ra. Away from the story arc the show's all-important stand-alone tales gave some thorny old subjects a new SF spin, including organised religion, the use of children in the passing on of knowledge, and leading an alternative life. O'Neill's sarcastic wit went into overdrive this year and Teal'c could be relied upon for a sneer or fish-out-of-water joke. Further comic relief came from Sam "Flash Gordon" Jones and Dom DeLuise, but perhaps the funniest thing of all was the wig Carter would apparently be wearing in an alternate universe. --Paul Tonks

I ordered the Stargate season 1 - 7 and with days they arrived. Having them means I can watch them at my leisure, and have enjoyed them. They arrived in their boxes and look good on my shelf.
I would recommend them to anyone who enjoyed Startrek, as although they are based on a different premise, they evolve as you watch them and become quite political again another subject I enjoy.
****Quick 1 paragraph spoiler****
After defeating Hathor, in the first episode of Season 3 "Into the fire", SG1 emerge victorious....for a while. We later learn the System Lords have agreed to destroy Earth, as it has once again proven to be a formiddable threat to them. However with the Asgard's assistance, Earth is able to be registered under something called "The protected planets treaty" (if you are wondering what that is - the title pretty much says it all). This prevents the attack on Earth, and enables them to resume gate operations.
****End of Spoiler****
Mid-way through the season, a huge twist is written in and a favourite bad guy of mine returns to power, and resumes his role as SG1's main villain. This is an epic moment for the series and makes Season 3 a must-watch already. What's more is that the Asgard tells of an enemy in their home galaxy that is even worse than the Goa'uld, which we finally get to see at the end of this epic season. This is where the show takes a turn for the better.
This is a MUST-WATCH for the first time viewer, and a must-buy for any fan deprived of not having the series in their home. If you still aren't sure if you like it or not after watching this, then don't bother watching the rest - if season 3 hasn't made up your mind then it's doubtful the rest of the series will.
From the end of Season 2 we find SG-1 trapped on Hathor’s home planet seeking a way home. Through the ending of this particular storyline in the episode ‘Into the Fire’ we get a good idea of how the series will continue. The humour is more free flowing and the team seems more united than ever.
Season 1 saw SG-1 encounter new enemies within the Goa’uld while Season 2 provided them with some willing allies. Now, in Season 3 the story takes centre stage. Episodes like ‘Legacy’ (304), ‘Point of View’ (306), ‘The Devil You Know’ (313), ‘Maternal Instinct’ (320) and ‘Nemesis’ (322) show just how great the writing is on the show as well as showing off the special effects that the producers have to offer.
For the third series running we are left on a cliffhanger on in the final episode with the introduction of the greatest threat to the Asgard – the replicators. These little guys just mean business and are a great addition to the Stargate universe.
As for Special Features, the Season Three Box-Set has some tricks up its sleeve (no pun intended). With profiles for Samantha Carter, Teal’c, George Hammond and Daniel Jackson, along with very insightful mini-documentaries about certain aspects of the Stargate universe, we are given great insight into how the show is made.
All in all the Season 3 Box-Set is a well compiled piece of work and should be in any true Stargate fan’s wishlist. All twenty-two episodes have enough action to sate even the most hardcore action fan and the background team, who are shown in one of the special feature mini-documentaries, have done more great work on creating the world which the SG-1 team visit.
Gosh I'm sorry it's finished!
