The 1994 movie Stargate was originally intended as the start of a franchise but creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were distracted celebrating their Independence Day,
Episodic TV treatment was the natural next step,
In the roles of Colonel Jack O’Neill and Dr Daniel Jackson respectively are Richard Dean Anderson and Michael Shanks,
They’re joined by Captain Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping) and guilt-stricken former alien baddie Teal’c (Christopher Judge) to form the teacher’s pet primary unit SG-1,
With a seemingly endless network of Stargates found to exist on planets all across the known universe, their mission is to make first contact with as many friendly races as possible,
Chasing their heels at almost every turn are the “overlord” Goa’uld–the ancient Egyptian Gods who are none too chummy after the events of the original film,
The welcome notion of a continued plot thread sees offshoots that follow the reincarnation of Daniel’s wife, Sam’s father literally joining a renegade faction of the Goa’uld, and Jack in an unending quest to out-sarcasm everyone,
There’s something of The Time Tunnel to the show’s premise but amid a dearth of derivative look-a-likes, Stargate has held its own with stories that put the science fiction back into TV sci-fi,
Paul Tonks

On this DVD : On planet Orban, Daniel Jackson is intrigued by a population’s scientific advances over only a few years,
An exchange of knowledge is agreed and the precise “Learning Curve” of their children is revealed,
Still recalling the original movie, O’Neill is concerned for the siblings because of the loss of his son,
Some more continuity tests the memory back to the episode “There But For the Grace of God”, when Jackson discovered a dimensional mirror,
Here, in “Point of View”, it allows the Sam Carter and Major Kawalsky from an alternate reality to shelter from their Goa’uld threat,
The problem being that Sam’s married to Jack in her reality, and Kawalsky’s dead in ours! The show is blessed with a star turn from Flash Gordon himself in “Deadman Switch” when Sam J Jones guests as Aris Boch, an alien bounty hunter working for the Goa’uld,
Lastly, in “Demons” some serious lambasting of organised religion occurs in a storyline concerning a medieval Christian village that’s being terrorised by a giant Goa’uld servant creature,
This episode both brings to light and questions each of the principal characters’ beliefs,

As well as trailers for the next volume, this disc includes an interview with Amanda Tapping on her character, Samantha Carter,
There’s also a featurette on the general workings of the show called “Producing the Stargate”,
