Product Description

Stargate Sg-1 ~ Vol. 2-Season 1

Amazon.ca

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

I think it is useful to remember that when you are looking at the first season of any series that the writing staff spends a lot of time getting everything set up in the pilot and then off of the various premises they have established they start spinning off stories. This means that everybody is writing episodes without having seen any, which explains why it takes a show a while to get going after a strong pilot. You will see that this is the case in the five episodes from Season 1 of "Stargate SG-1" that are collected here on Volume 2. The results are certainly not bad as they explore some ideas basic to the premise of the series, but this series really hits stride in the second half of this first season and finishes very strongly. The biggest common denominator for this set is that most of the episodes showcase the acting ability of Richard Dean Anderson, who gets to do a lot more than crack jokes in a sardonic manner. So just keep in mind that the pilot was good, that the best is yet to come, and that these are still enjoyable episodes and one of them is very good:
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Season Developement Feb. 10 2003
By A Customer
The episodes on this DVD reflect the still developing story lines & characters typical of the series' first season. While some are better done (Cold Lazarus) than others (Brief Candle), all are worth watching. And one episode, Thor's Hammer, shows a glimpse of the greatness that is to come.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD for a great show. May 24 2001
Stargate SG1 is a great Science Fiction Adventure series featuring a great cast led by Richard Dean Anderson. Michael Shanks is actually better in the role of Daniel Jackson than James Spader was in the original movie. The special effects in the series are all top notch, and the scripts are well written. Stargate SG1 is closer in spirit to the original Star Trek series of the 60's than any of the recent Star Trek shows (that's not comparing quality, just style - although SG1 holds up very well to them quality wise). That sense of adventure from the original Star Trek series is present in SG1, but SG1 just has more modern sensibilities. The episodes on the DVD Vol 2 are all good, with Brief Candle and Thor's Hammer as standouts. This DVD is well worth buying, and I highly recommend it, but you may also want to consider the Box Set of season 1. That's a great package. But you get great value with Vol 2 on its own as well (5 episodes on this disc). Either way - BUY IT! You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT have secon thoughts about it... Feb. 17 2001
By Jose
Just think about it, you ae looking at a 6 stargate spisoides DVD with two of the most espectacular episoides ever shown in TV. With an outstanding storyline, audio, video and acting, the Stargate Series are becoming the next TV cult. This DVD in particular contains the episoides THE BROCA DIVIDE, THE FIRST COMMANDMENT, COLD LAZARUS, THE NOX, BRIEF CANDLE and THOR'S HAMMER. All Stargate Fans know that THE NOX and THOR'S HAMMER are two classics on the Stargate Series (crucial for the future development of the series), and if you don't know the story, this is your chance to understand why Stargate is becomming the next Star Trek (but far more better). Stargate is not only a grate "sience fiction advnture", but it also has done its reserch. Mithology and sience convine with an explosive outcome. This MGM TV Serie, goes beyond the unspectable, with more quality than series such as MGM's The Outer Limits or Poltergist. I seriously advice that you see first the Stargate SG-1 Season 1, Vol. 1: Episodes 1-3 (1997) DVD, which includes the episoides CHILDREN OF THE GODS, THE ENEMY WITHIN and EMANCIPATION, for a complete understanding of the story. You may understand it anyway, but I promise you will enjoy it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stargate The Adventure Begins Nov. 6 2001
This is by far one of the best TV series I have ever seen. I have watched it for seven years now since it first began on Showtime. I shouldn't have to tell you the cast is great. Richard Dean Anderson made a smart move producing and acting in this series. I was happy to hear that another season is in the making for the SciFi channel. As many have said you are better off buying the entire season if you can afford it since they are all great and the price is incredibly low for all the hours of entertainment. You will not find better acting, sets, music, and special effects for this low of a price. I would have paid twice as much gladly for this wonderful set. It is more like watching a movie than a series with such great production values. If you haven't seen this series catch it on TV or rent a DVD if you can. I am sure after you see it you will want to buy the whole season. I am anxiously waiting for the rest the seasons to come out. I want to buy them all on DVD!
