Hollywood's film archives overflow with the carcasses of dismal movies based on lame '60s and '70s television shows, a syndrome that shows no sign of abating. But here's evidence that the reverse effect, turning a movie in... more »

Stargate SG-1 - One of the greatest one-hour programs on TV

"I fell in love with this series towards the end of Season 1, so I'm glad MGM decided to release this series on television. I can finally see the episodes I missed. This series is a great balence between action, science, and great storytelling. Richard Dean Anderson as O'Neil is a riot! Espically when he get's this blank look on his face after Daniel or Carter say something way over his head (Which happens a lot).After seeing this set, there is something the buyer should know:1. The series is shot in Canada, and to put it in a nice way, the cameras they used wern't exactly A+ equipment. That's why some scenes appear grainy. It's not the conversion to DVD, the grainyness was there on Showtime and when the show was syndicated on TV.2. This show is presented in Dolby 2.0 Surround. To get the best experience, set your home theater to 2 Channel Dolby, and have the reciever send the two channels to both front and surround speakers. Some episodes of the series have some really neat surround effects if you listen carefully.I put this series on par with X-Files, and Babylon 5, all great series in terms of storytelling."
A must have for fans of Science Fiction and Adventure

"Stargate SG1 is the best Sci-fi adventure series in years (well, since Babylon 5 anyway), and is closer in spirit to the original Star Trek series of the 60's than any of the recent Star Trek series. The show is a fun adventure series, and also has some good Science Fiction concepts. The scripts are well written, and the cast (led by Richard Dean Anderson) is excellent. The characters are well rounded, and the stories are exciting. The special effects are top notch as well. This box-set features all of Season 1 in anamporphic widescreen, and has some nice extra features as well (featurettes, promo trailers, etc), making it a "must-have" for any Science Fiction OR adventure fan. If you check the other reviews you can see the episodes on the 5 discs, but - trust me - this is a great set. BUY IT! MGM has already said that the release of Season 2 on DVD will be based on the sales of Season 1 - so BUY IT! The show seems to get better every year, so seasons 2 & 3 are must have's on DVD as well. They won't be released on DVD unless Season 1 does reasonably well - so BUY IT! (You will not regret it. This is a GREAT show!)"
