"The Nox," considered a classic by Stargate SG-1 devotees, is the centerpiece of this, the third of five discs comprising Stargate SG-1's first season. It's not hard to see why; with its combination of theme (the futility of fighting), characters (including Apophis, the recurring Goa'uld villain, and the appealing, fairylike title race), and the usual special effects wizardry, "The Nox" has all the elements that make Stargate SG-1 a superior sci-fi/adventure show. But the other episodes included have merit as well, including "The Torment of Tantalus," about a young professor who went through the gate 50 years ago, and "Bloodlines," in which Teal'c, the former SG-1 adversary, reveals the existence of the family he left behind when he joined the good guys (the other episodes are "Fire and Water" and "Hathor"). Once again, the only disappointment is the DVD bonus features, here limited to a profile of SG-1 big shot General Hammond (played by Don Davis). --Sam Graham

Volume 3 of Season 1 of "Stargate SG-1" offers up episodes 9-13 from the inaugural 1997-98 season, as the science fiction series starts to hit its stride. You will notice that one of the recurring themes in this episode is the quest of technology and/or knowledge from advanced civilizations and that several of the episodes have to do with the revelation of deep dark secrets:
Episode 9, "The Torment of Tantalus" (Written by Robert C. Cooper, Aired October 3, 1997) uncovers a story about the early days of the Stargate Project. Daniel Jackson (Michael Shanks) is going over all the old records about the Stargate when he discovers footage of someone going through the Stargate in 1945. Confronting Catherine Langford (Elizabeth Hoffman) about the incident, the SG-1 team learns that Ernest Littlefield, Catherine's fiancé, went through the Stargate and never returned. Using computer enhancements SG-1 is able to go re-dial the location and go there, with Catherine, to see if they can find out what happened to Ernest. What they find is Ernest (Keene Curtis), which is good news, and a broken Stargate that will prevent them from returning, which is bad news. Meanwhile, Ernest shows Dr. Jackson the marvelous wonders left by alien races. 4.5 Stargates.
Episode 10, "Bloodlines" (Story by Mark Saraceni, Teleplay by Jeff King, Aired October 10, 1997) has Teal'c (Christopher Judge) revealing to his SG-1 teammates that he left a family behind on Chulak when he joined them. He kept the secret because he did not want them to doubt his loyalty. But now his son, Rya'c has reached the age at which he will be given his Goa'uld larva, and Teal'c wants to stop this from happening. General Hammond (Don S.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best sampling from Year One Oct. 2 2002
By DrNJP
If you are not very familiar with Stargate SG-1, you may not want to splurge on the whole boxed set. If you just want to dip a toe in the water, this individual DVD is probably the best of the group. "The Nox" is considered a classic, but I always thought "Torment of Tantalus" had a good story and good guest actors. "Fire and Water" seemed a little hokey with the alien makeup, but repeat viewings have shown me that the character studies of the SG team are quite good. "Hathor" is an unconventional baddie who will recur in the future. It lets the doctor step out of her bedside manner role. "Bloodlines" not only provides good background for the Goa'uld culture; it lets Christopher Judge do more than arch an eyebrow.
You'll need to buy the boxed set to get the whole pilot-thru-cliffhanger experience (recommended!), but as a sampler, this one is probably the best example of how the series makes good use of the stargate premise and lets the team members have real dimension.

1.0 out of 5 stars Apophis - Speachless Sept. 19 2002
I have had the boxed set since it's release. The only problem
was this disk. The NOX episode is missing the voice for Apophis.
He talks but nothing comes out.
I rate this low only because of a real missed opportunity.
Though this disk was available in the boxed set. It was only
recently released as an individual DVD. It has been a year at
least, you think they would have fixed it before this release.
But, NO!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voice of Apophis Nov. 18 2002
By Jean
Hi, folks have complained about the voice of Apophis being inaudible on "The Nox" episode. I think this has to do with the surround sound setup on the disk. So, the voice is there, but if you don't have surround sound, you need to set your dvd player up properly so that it isn't doing surround sound output. Else Apophis is broadcast on channels you don't have, and you can't hear him.
