Product Description

Amazon.ca

To resolve the season 2 cliffhanger, General Hammond rounds up every conceivable ally to rescue the SG-1 team from Hathor's clutches and gets a much-needed field trip in the process. "Into the Fire " is actually a weak opening for the new year, but does boast some impressive visuals as Hammond and Brat'ac pilot a shuttle through an open Stargate (euphemistically called "threading the needle"). In subsequent episodes, Daniel Jackson is intrigued by the planet Orban's scientific advances over only a few years. An exchange of knowledge is agreed and the precise "Learning Curve" of their children is revealed. Still recalling the original movie, O'Neill is concerned for the siblings because of the loss of his son. In "Demons" some serious lambasting of organized religion occurs in a storyline concerning a medieval Christian village that's being terrorized by a giant Goa'uld servant creature. This episode both brings to light and questions each of the principal characters' beliefs.

"Forever in a Day" begins an important storyline about Daniel's wife Sha're's stolen child who is a "Harcesis," an illegal breeding between Goa'uld hosts. Then an earlier thread is picked up in "Past and Present" on planet Vyus whose people all suffer amnesia. Their leader Ke'ra (played by Megan Leitch who's portrayed Mulder's missing sister in The X-Files) is a link to the earlier "Prisoners" episode and the dangerous "destroyer of worlds". In a two-part cliffhanger, Sam must attempt to rescue her father, face Satan himself on a prison moon, and resurrect "Jolinar's Memories" from the Goa'uld she was briefly possessed by, then "The Devil You Know" reveals an embarrassing secret that could allow the team to escape the clutches of Satanic Sokar. "Pretense" is one of those sci-fi series staples as a character is put on trial to prove their guilt on behalf of another. "Urgo" expands the general sardonic humor with a little pathos for the guest appearance by Dom DeLuise. Lots of slapstick ensues.

"A Hundred Days" is the three months O'Neill spends stranded on planet Edora by the fire rain of a passing asteroid belt. Then in "Shades of Grey" he appears to suffer a total personality switch when he steals technology from the Tollan and is insubordinate in the extreme. Both these are terrific concepts but are scarcely enough story to have stretched across more than one episode. --Paul Tonks

5.0 out of 5 stars A necessity for Stargate fans eveywhere. March 7 2003
By "qu0s"
Format:DVD
It's been a long time, but Season 3 is finally coming to DVD. Arguably the best season of Stargate SG-1, there is a balance of dramatic and lighter episodes, as well as continued development of the overall story arc. The Goa'uld become a little nastier this season, and Earth finds itself in need of some powerful allies. We get to see alternate Earths, watch Jack go bad, meet Oma Desala, and get introduced to the Replicators. There is also a lot of character development over the season, and a resolution to several ongoing stories, including Shau'rae's and Ska'ara's. Very much a season of 'the team', SG-1 are at their best here and their interactions show the sense of team spirit that is lacking in later seasons. With episodes like 'Fair Game', 'Legacy', 'Forever in a Day', 'Urgo' and 'Shades of Grey', I cannot recommend this season enough to either long time fans, or those looking to get into the Stargate SG-1 world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Endings and New Beginnings April 3 2004
By Andrew
Format:DVD
Many people believe that subsequent seasons of Stargate: SG1 get progressively better. So far, no arguement from me. Season 1 was good, 2 was better, and this has been the best so far. Col. Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson), and his SG1 team of the now Maj. Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping), Dr. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks), and Teal'c (Christopher Judge) continued their adventures through the Stargate to various old and new planets. The team, as well as the SGC in general, were tested in many more ways than ever thought possible. The team went to "Hell" in order to save Sam's dad, who is still a member of the Tok'Ra resistance, Daniel suffered a major loss, and O'Neill was blended, albeit briefly, with a Goa'uld.
One of the reasons that I personally liked this year was that many of last year's conflicts were resolved (Lenea, Destroyer of Worlds), which made room for new plotlines (the Replicators), as well as continuing old ones (the search for the Harsesis child). Also, this season revitalized a Season 1 plotline that had been falsely ended in Season 2.
This is also the season when SG1 truly realizes that they truly have allies in their fight against the Goa'uld; the Asgard helped form a treaty between Earth and the Goa'uld (though it is not likely to be followed by either party due to some of the clauses), the Tok'Ra continue to offer their assistance and wisdom, the Nox have begun to reestablish contact with the SGC, and the Tollan, who are also human, now have reason to truly dislike the parasitic alien race. Speaking of which, I really liked the episode "Pretense", because it gave large roles to the Tollan and Liah, who is of the Nox. I mean, if the Asgard had made an appearance in the episode, then it would have really been a party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, better than just about anything on TV Jan. 20 2004
Format:DVD
If a person wants some pretty good TV science fiction, the Stargate series has always been a good choice with the third season being no exception.
The alien worlds SG-1 visits each week do have a Canadian look to them that can't be helped, that's where it's filmed, but for action adventure I think you'll find it to be really pretty good.
There's a wide variety of stories for you to choose from, something will be good to anyone who likes scifi with some gunplay. I personally liked #1 Into the Fire, #2 Seth, #4 Point of View,#12 Foothold,#15 A Hundred Days, #17 New Ground. Most of the others had their good points too, how many series are that strong in quality?
The featurettes are done in a different style with this box set with Don Davis and/or Teryl Rothery in character on the SG-1 set speaking to the camera as if the viewer is someone invited to look over some computer file or do some research, when the segment is done they invite you to leave. The format is a little silly but the featurettes are interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate SG-1 Oct. 6 2003
Format:DVD
This series started with a fairly negative movie---"Stargate" and then went on to several much better series out on DVD. The latest is Season 3. I do hope they speed up the release of the other seasons since customer service at Amazon said it was one of the top sellers. I use to be a total Star Trek Fan until it got to be more like a Broadway Play with a lot of Psychological drama since I think most of the actors really wanted to do that. Meanwile, as one can see by the customer ratings, StarGate took off with its series based in our time and actually tied to a much debated question----who built the pyrmids with such total accurancy. To me, a long time Sci-Fi Fan, it just soared past Star Trek. Based on some reasonalbe assumptions as played by Smanath Carter, much sound physics is discussed relating to worm holes as we understand them now and travel across the Galaxy using that mode of transportation. The US Air Force(for real)has been involved in advising them as the series stars Air Force people back on Earth which has made it look very real. The Gouls, constantly out to do us in have been beat at every turn by our old earth weapons and US Air Foprce people using good judgement. Just about all the other series you see involve some future army or current one now, and this series does justice to our Air Force today. I think it will serve a great way to get younger people in the Air Force. In one scene, a US General actually plays a short role doing a good job. In this series, we cooperate with other nations such as the Russians who are protrayed well as being Courage driven---not unlike our current space program. In some shows they have used the Shuttle and did not strech what the thing does. Read more ›

In an AU, Jack and Sam are either married or engaged. Why can't it happen in their reality? Good season though.
