Product Description

Amazon.ca

A gradual shift in overall style, character homecomings and departures, and evolving on- and off-screen roles for the major players are among the attractions of the seventh season of Stargate SG-1. Spread out over five discs, these 21 episodes are ample indication that changes notwithstanding--and admittedly, not all of them are for the better--the series remains arguably the best-made, most compelling sci-fi program on television.

Perhaps most noticeable is the reduced role of star Richard Dean Anderson, who opted to limit his number of trips to Vancouver, where Stargate SG-1 is filmed. But that's not a bad thing. The show's ability to poke fun at itself has always been a strong suit, and while Anderson still brings a welcome sense of humor to his portrayal of wiseacre and loose cannon Col. Jack O'Neill, his act is getting a little smug by now. What's more, the other principal cast members have taken up the slack, both behind and in front of the camera: Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson, who rejoins the cast in episode 1) wrote one episode and co-wrote another; Christopher Judge (Teal'c) wrote one as well; Amanda Tapping (Lt. Col. Samatha Carter) directed episode 19, "Resurrection"; and even Corin Nemec (Jonas Quinn, who appears in just a few episodes) contributed one story.

The seventh season also finds the series somewhat more earthbound than in the past; indeed, there are episodes in which the Stargate (the "wormhole" our heroes use to travel to different worlds) doesn't appear at all. On balance, the stories are more personal, and more political--especially the final two, with the newly elected U.S. President (William Devane) struggling to decide the fate of the Stargate program (and, of course, the fate of the entire known universe as well!). And then there's the ultimate villain, Anubis, who makes perennial nemeses the Goa'uld (of which Anubis is one... sort of) look tame. He's a combination of Star Wars' Darth Vader and evil Emperor, but hey, at least these guys borrow from the best.

Stargate SG-1's production values remain first-rate. The bonus DVD features are also much better than they once were, with audio commentary (mainly by directors and writers) for every episode, as well as director profiles and "Beyond the Gate" featurettes focusing on individual characters. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars More SG-1! July 17 2004
Format:DVD
Stargate SG-1 is simply amazing: after seven seasons it still is the best show on TV. I am writing this having watched both the two-part season-8 premiere and the Atlantis pilot. The season 8 premiere was a very good conclusion to the season 7 cliffhanger. I am more dubious about Atlantis: the concept of SG-1 is that you go to another solar system, and then you are back home for dinner. With a completely off-world based plot, Atlantis will be much harder to sustain. Still, while not totally convincing, the pilot was entertaining enough. I'll keep watching. And so should you. This is one of the reasons why you really need this DVD set: the plot of the SG-1 series is so complicated that you really need to watch all episodes to keep up. Several times.
The other reason to own the season 7 set is that, while it might not be up to the very best seasons, it still has a number of unforgettable episodes. The late two-part episodes "Heroes" and "Lost city" are among the best of the entire series, but I liked "Evolution", "Grace" and even "Chimera" a lot. These three episodes show the diversity of the plots of SG-1: "Chimera" is an entirely Earth-based episode, "Grace" is almost entirely based on the spaceship Prometheus and "Evolution" has action going on both in the jungle of Nicaragua and on Anubis' planetary base.
"Lost city" was originally planned as a feature movie, a la "X-Files Fight the Future". I am happy that the movie route was not taken: while the special effect budget would have been bigger, the movie would have broken the continuity of the series. As it is, "Lost City" is both a spectacular episode on its own and a great introduction to SG-1 season 8 and to Atlantis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Changing Tides Sept. 30 2005
Format:DVD
Season Seven had everyone hooked with the return of Daniel Jackson, a favorite of most fans. Fallen and Homecoming lacked the emotional depth it could have had, but as on the commentary writers agreed and pointed this out themselves, I tend to be more forgiving this time around. The loss of General Hammond was sad, though perhaps time. The loss of Janet Fraiser was handled very well, though again, it was sad to see.
The only true complaint would be the difference we see in the friendship between Daniel and Jack. For this season, it appears that they truly are merely work collegues. Daniel's return and battle to regain his memories was met with stoicsm befitting Lurch from the Adams Family.
It was good to see the characters have a life outside the SGC, and get a chance to watch them evolve a little. The overall season did well.
Individual episodes, however, are for the most part, well, pretty boring. Any praise this season earns is based on the overall effect.
Fallen, Homecoming, Grace, Evolution 1&2, and Heroes 1&2 are the best.
Finally, I feel that although the episode itself fell short of being brillant, I must add a tribute to Michael Shanks for his performance in Lifeboat, and how, as an actor, he handled the different roles.
And last but not least... good-bye, Little Napoleon. We will miss you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate SG-1 Season 7 Boxed Set Jan. 2 2005
Format:DVD
Well, this is Season probably has some of the best SG-1 has to offer in the way of story lines and characters.
We see the return of Daniel Jackson, the departure of Jonas Quinn as well as some very interesting yet deep episodes that explore the main characters further than ever before.
Notably, the episode titled Grace is possibly Amanda Tappings finest work on the show and it really goes into the mind of Sam and what she sees and feels.
I particularly enjoyed the two part episode Heroes, where a film crew come into the SGC to put together a documentary. These two episodes explore the feelings of each character and the battle scenes are very "Saving Private Ryan esc" yet done superbly.
Sam has herself a boyfriend although I think when they do finally end the series, she needs to dump him and run into the arms of Jack! Their love for each other is being explored a lot more this season although done very sublty given their military positions.
Season 7 is much more of an emotional rollercoaster ride and more character related.
As far as milestones go, I think this Season certainly sets the tone for Season 8 with some unfortunate departures of main characters including the death of an old favourite.
OVerall this boxed set is a must for ALL SG-1 followers and we can look forward to even more great stuff in Seasons 8 and 9.
