It now seems clear that season 5 of Stargate SG-1 will be remembered as the one in which something went awry with Daniel Jackson. Lots of behind-the-scenes rumors fueled the idea of cast tension, but whatever the problem, ...  more »

Ignore the ' essential video' review at the top
A. Niebruegge | 12/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Forget TITANIC, the unquestionable champion of most oscar-honored film (11 in all) belongs to 1959's BEN-HUR. It is the pinnacle of all biblical epics. Critics and viewers alike have to admit that this film, telling about the adventures of a Jewish aristocrat in the time of Christ, is SOMETHING of a milestone, whether they love it, hate it, or feel it overrated in its acclaim. In my opinion, the belief that this film is overrated is simply not justified. Thanks to William Wyler, it avoids the handicap of some sword and sandal movies by successfully fitting both the dramatic and spectacular elements together, resulting in many memorable scenes of visual and emotional power: The nativity prologue, Messala's march into Jerusalem, the conflicting relationship between Judah and Messala, Christ giving water to the despairing Judah, the sea battle (even though you can tell those ARE model ships, the scene is still well done), Arrius' triumphant entry into Rome, the cleansing of the lepers, and, of course, the great Chariot Race. The production is excellent, the sets and costumes looking lavish and realistic at the same time, with the immortal epic music by Miklos Rosza playing throughout. As for the acting, for someone whose acting ability has been labeled wooden and stiff, Charlton Heston gives a great performance as the tortured title character. He is well matched by the superb Stephen Boyd as the ruthless and power-intoxicated Messala. The supporting cast is also fine, with Haya Hararret as Esther, Jack Hawkins as Quintus Arrius, and the delighful Hugh Griffith as Sheik Illdrean. All associated have truly made BEN-HUR an epic to beat all epics."
One of my personal favorite seasons

"I know this isn't everyone's opinion, but for me, each season gets better and better. Writers and actors get to know the characters and a story more when they've made over 100 episodes with them. (Episode 100 is included in this set, an episode where the writers just decide to mess around and have a good time)Season 5 introduces some very key characters and situations:
--Colonol Frank Simmons
--Explanation of the ascended being ("Ascention" and "Meridian")
--The jaffa rebellion ("The Warrior")
--Further Russian entanglements including the fate of the Earth DHD ("48 Hours")
--The introduction of Anubis ("Last Stand," "Revelations")
--The fate of the Tollan ("Between Two Fires")
--The temperary departure of Michael Shanks ("Meridian")
--The method of Asguard reproduction ("Revelations")
--Jonas Quinn ("Meridian")All of these situations play key in the epic saga of the Stargate universe, providing for plot variations and new ideas in later seasons. The new ideas are still there. The humor is still there. Over 100 episodes in, Stargate is still going strong in this collection.I am looking forward to adding this 5th boxed set to my other four boxed sets.I enjoyed Season 6 even better. Season 7 is still blowing my mind. Let's have those as boxed sets soon as well."
SG-1 Season Five

"I think you're right, Selune, Jonas Quinn's first appearance was Season 5 in "Meridian". Jonas is unable to return to his own people after he discloses that Daniel became irradiated when he stopped a chain reaction that would have destroyed the planet. For those who liked Daniel, there is a featurette about him on this DVD set.The video is just as good as Season Four, and seeing SG-1 in widescreen anamorphic format is a dream. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio is great. During some of the fights, I really feel as if I'm sitting right in the crossfire!"Wormhole Extreme!", which several have already mentioned is a tremendous episode, features cameo appearances by actual crew members as crew in the episode. If you're curious, here's the list:
David Sinclair, Prop master: Bill the assistant director
Hank Cohen, MGM executive: studio executive
Herbert Duncanson, stand-in for Christopher Judge: Doug Anderson\Greel the Robot
Jan Newman in make-up: make-up person
Joseph Mallozzi, supervising producer & writer: crew member asking about doughnuts
Martin Wood, director: NID man
Michael Greenburg & Brad Wright, executive producers: in final walkaway
N. John Smith, co-executive producer: second crew member asking about doughnut
Peter DeLuise: director
Rick Dean, chief lighting tech: crewman that doesn't like Teal'c food
Robert Cooper, executive producer & writer: the writer
Ron Wilkerson, story editor: in limo with Cohen Extras:
=>Commentary for each episode. Don't miss the one for "Wormhole Extreme!"
=>"Video Diaries" (3 diaries, about 10 minutes each) Three cast members, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, & Michael Shanks, shot some footage for the DVDs in what they call "video diaries".
=>"Inside the Tomb" (6 minutes) Peter DeLuise examines the episode and the set of "The Tomb".
=>Dr. Daniel Jackson - A Tribute (6 minutes) Highlights from Dr. Jackson's time with SG program.Wasn't there a Part 1 of 3 parts documentary "Timeline to the Future" on Season Four? I would think that Part 2 would be on this DVD set and I don't see it. I wonder if MGM/UA will follow up on this. Otherwise, this SG-1 Season Five DVD set is great, highly recommended to any SG-1 fan."
