Join Colonel Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) and the SG-1 Team in the complete seventh series of the US sci fi programme. Continuing it's blend of sharp wit and cool adventure, 'Stargate' delivers all the action adventure you desire as the crew battle against old foes and face new dangers in amazing but ever more hostile worlds. Episodes are: 'Fallen (1)', 'Homecoming (2)', 'Fragile Balance', 'Orpheus', 'Revisions', 'Lifeboat', 'Enemy Mine', 'Space Race', 'Birthright', 'Evolution (1)', 'Evolution (2)', 'Grace', 'Fallout', 'Chimera', 'Death Knell', 'Heroes(1)', 'Heroes (2)', 'Resurrection', 'Inauguration', 'Lost City (1)' and 'Lost City (2)'.
A gradual shift in overall style, character homecomings and departures, and evolving on and off-screen roles for the major players are among the attractions of the complete seventh season of Stargate SG-1. Spread out over five discs, these 21 episodes are ample indication that changes notwithstanding--and admittedly, not all of them are for the better--the series remains arguably the best-made, most compelling sci-fi program on television.
Perhaps most noticeable is the reduced role of star Richard Dean Anderson, who opted to limit his number of trips to Vancouver, where Stargate SG-1 is filmed. But that's not a bad thing. The show's ability to poke fun at itself has always been a strong suit, and while Anderson still brings a welcome sense of humor to his portrayal of wiseacre and loose cannon Col. Jack O'Neill, his act is getting a little smug by now. What's more, the other principal cast members have taken up the slack, both behind and in front of the camera: Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson, who rejoins the cast in episode 1) wrote one episode and co-wrote another; Christopher Judge (Teal'c) wrote one as well; Amanda Tapping (Lt. Col. Samatha Carter) directed episode 19, "Resurrection"; and even Corin Nemec (Jonas Quinn, who appears in just a few episodes) contributed one story.
The seventh season also finds the series somewhat more earthbound than in the past; indeed, there are episodes in which the Stargate (the "wormhole" our heroes use to travel to different worlds) doesn't appear at all. On balance, the stories are more personal, and more political--especially the final two, with the newly elected U.S. President (William Devane) struggling to decide the fate of the Stargate program (and, of course, the fate of the entire known universe as well!). And then there's the ultimate villain, Anubis, who makes perennial nemeses the Goa'uld (of which Anubis is one... sort of) look tame. He's a combination of Star Wars' Darth Vader and evil Emperor, but hey, at least these guys borrow from the best.
Stargate SG-1's production values remain first-rate. The bonus DVD features are also much better than they once were, with audio commentary (mainly by directors and writers) for every episode, as well as director profiles and "Beyond the Gate" featurettes focusing on individual characters. --Sam Graham

The departure of Jonas Quinn, and the return of Daniel Jackson is dealt with early in the season, paving the way for much bigger storylines and plot developments (Atlantis, anyone?).
This season has quite a few stand-alone episodes that do not contribute to the overall story arc, but this gives each character more of a chance to shine.
Teal'c, Daniel Jackson and Samantha Carter all have episodes that delve more into their lives and personalities - but unfortunately O'Neill fans may be slightly disappointed with most of this season. There's never a point where he's just "not there", but his reduced presence is often felt. However, it's all made up for in the last couple of episodes.
Along with the all of Season 7, there are some great commentaries, and some hilarious "Beyond the Gate" featurettes with the cast.
If you're an SG-1 fan, there's no reason not to buy this DVD.
I have been a huge fan since the very beginning of the show and this is one that gets better in each season. The opening 2 episodes deal with the return of Dr (Daniel) Jackson, last seen in the season 6 climax when he broke the rules and attempted to destroy Anubis with his ancient powers. The show usually begins with an action packed double-episode and this is by far the best one yet. You get the usually "random planet" exploration and its good to see an episode that doesnt seem important at first, suddenly tie in with a later plot based episode.
In the middle of the series, we are treated to another double episode that sees the introduction of a new foe; the Anubis super soldier. Encased in a bullet-proof, energy absorbing suit and possesing super-human strength and endurance, can the team possibly find a way to defeat the genetically enhanced soldiers before they wipe out everything? their only apparent weakness is a low life-span caused by having out of proportion organs that are unsustanable.
The whole thing reaches an explosive conclusion in another 2 part episode that sees O'Niell once again get exposed to an Ancient repository (a library that downloads all of its information into the recipients brain) in order to find a way to repel the inevitable attack by Anubis against Earth...but unable to contact the Asgard, can they find a way to prevent O'Niell from being killed as his mind is over-written by the vast ancient knowledge, as well as find a way to stop Anubis himself?
Buy this now if you never saw the series on SkyOne.
Yep, the writers actually managed to write him back in, and the timing couldn't have been better. Anubis seems to be dominating the entire Goa'uld domain, and it's only a matter of time before he turns his attention back to Earth, so they need to find the city of the lost, a city long abandoned by the ancients, with all kinds of technology just lying around.
Season 7 is the first season to be better (in my opinion) then season 4, finally with Anubis being a bigger threat than he was in the last season, we get to see a new side to him having learnt he's half-ascended, and has created new type of warrior, the Kull, who are far superior to Jaffa in battle. An annoying "Pete Shanahan" intruding on the Sam/Jack love story kind of annoys me, not to mention the fact that he's Peter DeLuise's brother (the director - who i feel just takes the piss out of the show for his own personal gain).
Season 7 takes SG1 to a new level of epic, and brings about the birth of the spin-off series Atlantis. It's still as great as ever, and the one of the best seasons, a definate must-watch!! However i will say this - an upsetting truth about Season 7 is that not 1, but 2 vital characters leave. Not going into details but Dr Fraiser will be sorely missed, not to mention that was really sad the way she died. And Hammond leaves. Surely this could bring about the downfall of Stargate?
