Product Description


The beat goes on for Stargate SG-1 in this five-disc set containing all 20 episodes from the show's eighth season. If that beat is now a bit more faint than in previous years, that's not particularly surprising when a franchise has been around this long; what's more, if Season 8 has some fairly odd aspects to it ("Threads," which appears to have been planned as the final episode of the entire series, is followed by two more in this set alone… not to mention an unexpected renewal that led to an all-new Season 9), that too isn't exactly unusual in the wacky world of series television.

Some significant changes are apparent in Season 8. Jack O'Neill (series star Richard Dean Anderson) has been promoted to Brigadier General and is now top dog (as he puts it, the guy who "spent my whole life stickin' it to the man" now is the man). The existence of the stargate, an artificially created "wormhole" through which one can instantly travel to different worlds light years away from Earth, is no longer a well-guarded secret. And Stargate Command itself now exists primarily to "develop new weapons and technologies to defend the planet" from our various alien antagonists--principally the "Replicators," relentless little bug-machines poised to take over not only Earth but the entire galaxy.

The rest of the SG-1 core cast (Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, and Michael Shanks) is intact. But whereas Anderson, who has steadily reduced his role in the show, wasn't much missed in Season 7, one wishes there were more of him this time around; O'Neill's general insouciance and aversion to techno-speak are a welcome antidote to the kind of sci-fi gobbledygook (discussions about "a time dilation field on the planet Hala" and such) that now threatens to take precedence over the action and fine special effects that distinguished earlier seasons. Most of all, while there are still all manner of villains (Anubis, Ba'al, the ever-present Goa'uld) to contend with, as well as a few good guys (the Asgard, the rebel Jaffa) to help our heroes fight the good fight, Stargate SG-1's writers and creators may be running out of steam. Hence we get an episode like the very peculiar "Citizen Joe," featuring Dan Castellaneta as an average guy who sees "visions" (i.e., clips from past episodes) of the SG-1 team in action and becomes obsessed with proving that the whole stargate project really exists; an uneasy combination of self-parody and self-congratulation, this episode, while not unamusing, sticks out like a sore thumb.

Bonus features include audio commentary (mostly by the various directors) on 19 of the 20 episodes, along with photo galleries and one featurette per disc. --Sam Graham

One of the best scifi series going, One can't go wrong with the SG-1 franchise. Any more praise would be expounding religous doctrine to the temple singers..

2.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking? Oct. 6 2005
As a longtime fan of Stargate and owner of all the previous season box sets, I can't say that the Season 8 box set impresses me much. For starters, there's a definite lack of Director's Series, pitiful extras, and they seemed to have had major difficulties in getting any of the stars to do the commentaries. But even worse, for some inexplicable reason, the Threads episode has been cut down to a 60 minute episode, even though its Never been aired as a 60 minute episode but as a 90 minute one. Why are we getting a different, shorter, and inferior version than the one aired? The Region 2 DVD has the 90 minute version And a Director's Series on it to boot! Its as if the DVD (and especially the extras) was thrown together without much thought or in a massive rush. I never thought I'd say this about a Stargate DVD set, but it's not worth getting. Certainly not for the extras, and moreso for the cutdown version of an aired episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD en francais April 7 2006
By A Customer
Comment voulez-vous qu'on achete chez vous des séries, si on ne peux pas se fier sur la langue que vous indiquer. Stargate SG1 saison 1 et 8 sont en francais aussi et je peux le confirmer, j'ai les 2 coffrets. Je cherche à trouver les saisons 2 à 7 en francais et j'espère que la 9ème saison sera également en français.
Il semble qu'en europe (zone 2), ce problème ne se pose pas, les 8 premiers coffrets ont le francais comme choix de langue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Correct DVD version for Canada Jan. 14 2006
By A Customer
I live in Canada and I bought the DVD set when it got out. By mid-november you could write to this adress to get a replacement copy of the 5th DVD with the "Threads" episode: http://www.checkmyrebate.com/Details.asp?promo=AAN.
I sent the required information in an envelop on November 22nd and I received the longer version, 90 minutes version of the episode (65 minutes without commercials) on January 4th 2006. So it is possible to get it in Canada. However there is a deadline of 31/01/2006. The news was posted and can still be found on the tvshowsondvd.com.
Thank you for reading this so that you can obtain your corrected copy of the episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very best Sci-Fi show available on DVD! May 6 2007
By D. Landry TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Richard Dean Anderson looks p*ssed....... Aug. 7 2006
It's a well known fact (to the Stargate obsessed that is) that Richard Dean Anderson has wanted to get off the show for a couple of seasons now. This is the first season that it really shows. This is not to say it isn't a good season, just not a great one.

If you're collecting all the seasons there's nothing so awful about this season that I would suggest skipping this set. However if you're looking to get into the show, it's not the season I would want you to start on.

It's not as funny, as sci fi or as captivating as any other season. On the plus side things did pick back up for season 9.

I'm a huge fan of Stargate and I do hold it to high standards so maybe I'm being a little harsh, but then again maybe I'm not.

The extras are what you'd expect from a Stargate DVD, nothing spectacular but I do enjoy the audio commentary, especially any done by Peter Deluise, he's always funny.

All in all, get it to keep the set together, not for the quality of the shows
