Product Description

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, his sudden departure from the show was obviously through a quickly contrived scenario. In retrospect, there must have been a problem for some while before the weird penultimate episode ("Meridian"). Michael Shanks looks frequently bored in his rare moments of individual screen time as he infiltrates a Goa'uld meeting and even when making friends with a creature everyone else wants dead. In fact, there's only one point when everyone really seems to be having fun, and that's in the spoof 100th episode "Wormhole X-treme!"

Most shows go through a run-around, skin-of-their-teeth period awaiting renewal, and it certainly seems to have affected storylines this year. For example, a next generation of younger SG teams is introduced. Replacements? The most unfortunate aspect of things, however, was that not a single episode managed to stand alone on its own merits. Every single story was dependent on a part of the greater interwoven warring-species threads. Some of the one-off tales were terrific in and of themselves, but it was as if the writers fell into the trap of having to refer to as much backstory as possible, perhaps to ensure loose ends could be easily wrapped up? Ultimately none of this mattered since the show went on for quite a while. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Season five could have been so much better. The writers had so much to work with, and instead chose to fall back into old story lines. For me, a long and faithful SG-1 fan, it was a bitter disappointment, especially Meridian. It had such potential to be the best Stargate episode ever, if only they'd paid a little more attention to the emotions involved. I mean, the SGC was losing a valuable player. Jack O'Neill was losing his best friend. Daniel was there, then he wasn't, and then he was forgotten, essentially. And for what was to be Michael Shanks last season, at the time, he did very little throughout the season. One liners are hardly laying the ground to such a shattering moment. I'm sure most Stargate fans were deeply grieved at Doc Jackson's loss... and we seem to be the only ones! Definitely not one of the better seasons. Whether it was a season finale, or a series finale, as rumoured at the time, it was simply crushing all the way around. A friendship that most of us have watched and enjoyed for years simply slipped away with barely a whisper. Really, guys. You could have done better!

Sadly, the fifth season of Stargate: SG-1 broke the streak of progressively better seasons that had been going on ever since the first season. The year began with a cool premiere, "Enemies", but the next couple episodes sucked. For example, the episode "Beast of Burden", which deals with Daniel Jackson's (Michael Shanks) Unas friend, Chaka, was terrible. Personally, I also hated the episode "The First Ones" from last year which began the Chaka thread. I mean, I haven't seen episodes this bad since Season 1 (many of the Season 1 episodes, while good, are far inferior to the episodes of Seasons 2-4). Once you reach the third disc, beginning with the episode "Between Two Fires", the episodes become good again. However, the bad episodes weren't the only problems that this season faced. Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) seemed to regress a little bit because he seemed a lot less tolerent of Daniel than he had been in the last two years (he does, however, reveal his true feelings about Jackson in the episode "Meridian"). Teal'c (Christopher Judge) and Dr. Janet Frasier (Teryl Rothery) were underused, as were the Asgard, who seem to have put politics ahead of real problems.
However, when this season was good, it was REALLY good. There were some amazing story developments this year, beginning with the final demise of Apophis (Peter Williams), the Goa'uld System Lord who has been making life difficult for the SGC ever since the first season.

Being a huge fan of Stargate SG-1 since the beginning, I had to purchase this season to add to my collection.

This show had a great idea to have a stargate that let's you travel through many dimensions and galaxies. The unusual storyline and cast is excellent! Whether you like sci-fi or not, this is fun to watch since it touches a lot of issues such as dealing with different kinds of nations and their beliefs, friendships, enemies, adventures and even comedy.

You will see the characters develop over time, the quirky unexpected humor, the use of an alien who doesn't fully understand human life on earth, the struggle of the oppressed, the lengths humans go in order to survive, politics and government bureaucracy.

This show is awsome on many different levels. On top of it all, they always keep the price very affordable. Money well spent.

During this season many of the storylines planted in season four begin to bear fruit. Some of these ideas will actually become the basis for the rest of the TV series both SG-1 and it's spin-offs. It is during this season that we first learn about "Ascension" and learn that not all of the Ancients follow the rules of non-interference. We revisit Casandra who has entered puberty and is manifesting some very powerful abilities. Carter is kidnapped by forces unknown and technology is developed that will ultimately make Baal a very potent enemy. Other stories revisited include the Tolians, the Unas Chaka, the NID and a sequel to 2010. The last few episodes of this season bring forth Anubis, a system lord like no other, who employs both brute force and guile becoming the SG team's number one adversary. We also learn that the replicators orginated in a most unexpected way. And of course the penultimate episode of the season includes a heroic death. Overall quite an enjoyable season.

There were a few standalone episodes that could be watched by the general viewing public, but this really is the point where the series mythology starts to require: "previously on SG-1" to bring a new viewer up to speed. This is also the season where we realize that the characters in SG-1 (unlike say Star Trek) are really making it up as they go along and they may be overmatched by their latest enemy.
