The cable series from Showtime which then went to
syndication is now on DVD courtesy of MGM. "Stargate SG-1"
is a spin-off series of the film, and if you're not
interested in buying the boxed set, MGM has released the
first two volumes in the set seperatley for your own
enjoyment at a low price. The first volume includes the
pilot episode - "Children Of The Gods", "The Enemy Within"
and "Emancipation". I wouldn't call this best series of all
time or even the best science fiction series of all time,
but is entertaining and creates more layers and builds upon
what the actual theatrical film of "Stargate" created.
For a television series, this transfer looks nothing
short of phenomenal. I especially liked the fact that the
episodes are shown in anamorphic widescreen, which is a
rarity, although television series are delving into it more
and more. The colors look excellent, being bright and
lustrous, and there were little to no artifacts or blemishes
to be found.
A Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is provided here, and
sounds quite good. While the series is not necessarily
effects driven, when there are explosions and things of that
nature, they come through very well. Also provided are Dolby
Surround tracks in French and Spanish, along with French and
Spanish subtitles and English closed captions.
Nothing. Ah well, the set contains the bulk of the
If you're not interested in buying the boxed set and want
the first three episodes (that including the pilot), this is
for you. MGM has not included extras here, but it's a good
presentation of a TV show for a low price.
