Stargate Sg-1 ~ Vol. 2-Season 1
You have to love a TV program whose titles alone manage to evoke the Old and New Testaments ("The First Commandment" and "Cold Lazarus," respectively), Shakespeare ("Brief Candle"), Norse mythology ("Thor's Hammer"), and more--and those are just four of the episodes contained on this, the second disc of Stargate SG-1's first season. Yet, while stories dealing with the nature of fear ("Thor's Hammer"), the value of enjoying life, no matter how short ("Brief Candle"), and other weighty issues certainly offer the potential for pretension, these largely manage to steer clear of it. As usual, the creators have spent their money on special effects rather than a lot of elaborate sets or enormous action pieces; there's also a refreshing emphasis on the stories, with their elements of humor, suspense, drama, and emotional resonance. Each episode has a menu for selecting the different scenes; DVD bonus features are limited to language and subtitle choices, along with a very slight, self-serving cast and crew featurette. --Sam Graham

Episode 4, "Broco Divide" (Written by Jonathan Glassner, Aired August 15, 1997) has SG-1 visiting a planet when the people are divided into the "Touched" and the "Untouched." When the team returns home they discover that they have contracted the disease of the "Touched," which has General Hammond (Don S. Davis) and Doctor Frasier (Teryl Rothery) in a state of near panic. Although the problem of contagion is rarely as "real" consideration in these shows, this episode does deal with the problem and gives Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) an opporunity to get primitive. 4 Stargates.
Episode 5, "The First Commandment" (Written by Robert C.Read more ›
4)Broco Divide - primative aliens & a mysterious illness. Need I say more?
5)The First Commandment - mutiny & a SG team leader with a God complex. Great interaction between Carter & O'Neill in the closing dialogue.
6)Brief Candle - beautiful, naive humans in a sheltered environment being corrupted by SG1. This episode is so like something Capt. Kirk would run into in the original series it was deja vue all over again. Star Trek anyone?
7)Cold Lazarus - a frindly alien impersonates O'Neill in an attempt to bring back O'Neill's son. This episode shows a rarely seen tender side of Col. O'Neill. Enjoy it girls, you won't see it again.
8)Thor's Hammer - the begining of the in-depth story developement and crucial to understanding some of the later episodes. This one is for everyone.

Not being familiar with the series, and not a particularly big fan of the original motion picture, my main reason for buying Episodes 4-8 of Stargate was the price. Read morePublished on Dec 31 2001
