Nate's DVD Collection ~ Stargate SG-1: Season 1

Updated on March 15, 2011

Summary

  Stargate SG-1 was based on the hit movie starring Kurt Russel and David Spader. Taking over for Russel's character is MacGyver veteran Richard Dean Anderson and David Spader's Daniel Jackson is handed over to Michael Shanks. Also in the cast are Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, and the late Don S. Davis.


The story takes place one year after the film and following a two-hour pilot episode, takes SG-1 to various planets throughout the galaxy via the Stargate: an ancient alien artifact and one of the most recognized plot devices in the universe.

What I Like About It

 

Stargate SG-1 doesn't get boring in the first five seasons. Like most shows filmed in Canada there are a ton of actors and actresses you'll recognize from other popular shows like Armin Shimerman and Carmen Antimo Argenziano.

What I Don't Like

 

Stargate SG-1 is one of those shows you can make a great drinking game out of. There's a lot of repetition in the first season and the story and character development moves at a snail's pace at times. I think this is largely due to the fact that if you're like me, you've probably watched these episodes a dozen or so times on the Sci-Fi Channel (Oh, I'm sorry, it's the SyFy Channel now) .

Should I Buy this DVD?

  It's definitely not a bad addition to the collection. Stargate has a huge fan base and you may know someone who loves the show and wouldn't mind it as a X-mas gift. But the extras are nothing to get exited over. I like lots of extras with my box sets and although it is my dream to one day spend 300 dollars on the entire series, My suggestion would be to rent it because you could probably get the entire series at a lower price online.

   You can even watch most of the season 1 episodes on Hulu.com for free, so if you have a computer and a good flashplayer drive save some money and watch them online before you make a decision.

Can My Kids Watch This?

 

There's a lot of guns, swords, futuristic and alien weaponry being fired and creepy snake-like creatures called the Goa'uld that find their way into the stomachs of their hosts. But if you allow your kids to watch shows like Power Ranger or movies like Lord of the Rings then this will be fairly tame in comparison.


There is blood but there's hardly any gore to speak of and most of the severe violence is suggested at rather than shown on screen. Some scenes involving sensuality and death may be a bit over the top, particularly the episode Hathor, in which Daniel Jackson is seduced and raped by the title villain. Again, this is not witnessed on screen, however the implication is there and if you're uncomfortable with it you may just want to skip that episode.
