Five great episodes on this DVD develope some of the existing story lines and explore new territory.
Ep. 5, Need, is about chemical dependancy and overcoming a god-complex.
Ep. 6, Thor's Chariot, is a great episode and further developement of the story of the alien race that protects Earth. One of the 2 episodes that make this disk worth buying.
In Ep. 7, Message in a Bottle, the team brings home an "artifact" that decides to take over Earth.
Ep. 8, Family, revisits the planet Chulak in order to save Teal'C's son. Unfortunately he doesn't want to be rescued, and endangers the team and the planet Earth.
Ep. 9, Secrets, is a double plot episode that brings back Daniel Jackson's wife as he attempts to save her from the Goa'uld that has taken her for a host. At the same time Carter & O'Neill are off in Washington to receive a medal for what they did in Ep. 1, The Serpent's Lair. While there O'Neill is confronted by a reporter who threatens to blow the cover on the Stargate program, and Carter is confronted by a dying father who wants her to quit what she's doing to pursue her dream of becoming an astronaut. Key points of this episode are the introduction of Jacob Carter who plays prominently in later episodes, and Daniel finally getting to see his wife again. This episode is THE reason to buy this disk.
I highly recommend this DVD for anyone who wants some good basic episodes for viewing, or for those who want to revisit the history behind some of the current season's stories.
