Join Colonel Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) and the SG-1 Team in the complete eighth season of the hugely popular US sci fi series. 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: 'New Order (Part One)', 'New Order (Part Two)', 'Lock Down', 'Zero Hour', 'Icon', 'Avatar', 'Affinity', 'Covenant', 'Sacrifices', 'Endgame', 'Prometheus Unbound', 'Gemini', 'It's Good To Be King', 'Full Alert', 'Reckoning (Part 1)', 'Reckoning (Part 2)', 'Threads', 'Citizen Joe', 'Moebius (Part 1)', 'Moebius (Part 2)'.
For a science-fiction show in its eight season, Stargate SG-1 clearly still has a lot of gas left in the tank. Its especially surprising, considering that this is a season that effectively was never meant to be, as spin-off series Stargate: Atlantis was due to take the reigns. Yet someone in power relented, and the further adventures of Jack ONeill and his team are the result.
Accepting that there are one or two bumps across the season, the standard though remains steadfastly high for the bulk of the episodes here. Youll find no spoilers here, short of to say that some of Stargate SG-1s long-running narratives are developed satisfyingly well.
Whats also pleasing is that theres a nice cocktail going on here. A gentle, welcome sprinkling of laugh-out loud moments compete with a good mystery or two, and some terrific action. Granted, sometimes you feel youve seen bits before, and its a shame that the series ends on arguably some of its weaker episodes. But this is countered nonetheless by some terrific individual programmes, with plenty youll find yourself rewinding back to once youve reach the end.
Whats most pleasing though is that for a mature show of any genre, its tricky to keep producing good quality TV. In the sci-fi genre in particular, theres a veritable graveyard of shows that never made it this far. Thus, to see Stargate SG-1 is such confident form is much to its credit. --Jon Foster

Last time we saw the team Jack was in a box under Antartica, and the first eps "New Order" deal with that problem, as well as consolidating the fact that the Ancient weapons caught the attention of the dominant powers in the Galaxy. These eps also geust star Torri Higginson as Dr. Weir, who would move onto Atlantis. From this episode onwards a growing problem builds up as the Replicators and the Goa'uld are headed towards a full-scale conflict that has been building up since Season 4, as well as Anubis returning and seemingly indesturtable, although his rep is damaged having been defeated in the Season 7 finale. But he's back, and he's badder than ever.
In spite of this there are more humourous episodes than ever before, such as "Prometheus Unbound" and "Citizen Joe" (Guest starring Hank Castella, better known as the voice of Homer Simpson to you and me!).
But don't worry, the tension and excellent drama is still in place, particularly the big 3 episode story arc "Reckoning" and "Threads", which cumilates all that has been building up ever since "Children Of The Gods" SG1 pilot, will the Goa'uld ever be defeated?
Even though the season finale is good, it sadly does not shine compared to the Atlantis season 1 finale, and you can't help but think that "Threads" would be a better suited finale. But that passes, and dont let it bother you!
So, get your money in, and buy this set, you won't regret it!
Since season seven, there has been more of a focus on characterisation and a tad bit more humour: and i for one welcome this, as the characters have always been the best aspect of the show: season eigght continues this trend, and also the trend of even better quality than ever before!
there is only two weak episodes in here: *its good to be king and *Sacrifices, that is all, only two. the rest are a great bunch of mostly stabnd alone episodes which are, although stand alone in nature have links to the main story arc. The quality is simply stunningly consistent, with a remarkable quality of writing, story, acting and characterisation and excitement present all of the season.
Highlights include the opening two parter: *New order Parts one and Two which is very exciting with plenty of plot twists and has some absolutley lovely character moments: jack taking control of the asgard ship (!) and carters "talk" with teal'c. *Affinity is another highlight for me as it is an eoisode with very little action, it is a mystery with a huge focus on characterisation and intrigue, and manages to be very intriguing, with, again, some brilliant little character moments, such as, wel, basically every darn scene teal'c is in! *Promtheus unbound is a highlight, as it barely feels like a ep of sg-1! it is so silly, it is almost like some sitcom (albeit set in space) but it WORKS!Read more ›
However, these complaints are wrapped up in a season that has its fair sharer of excellent episodes. The production team knew that this very well could have been the shows last year, as such any strands left over from the Goa'uld and Replicator story arcs were (sort of) resolved. By the close of the season, the main villains of the series were virtually obliterated in some brilliant episodes.
For some reason, Season Eight fails to feel like a "full" season. It strangely feels like the clean-up after Season Seven, or preparation for Season Nine, rather than having an identity of its own. For a show in its eighth year however, SG-1 is still brilliant sci-fi.
Do not fear! For the episode "Promethius Unbound" came to my rescue. After the formulaic blandness of some of the other episodes this was just an absolute gust of fresh air! Exciting, hilarious and question provoking it now rates as one of my favourite episodes to date!
The dynamic of the show feels different with O'Neill featuring less but the show still works SPOILER (tho O'Neill in command of the base is questiionable!!!) END OF SPOILER
Therefore to conclude, I would recommend this but I would warn buyers that while the first few episodes may leave you a little disappointed, hang on cause it gets better!
