Stargate SG-1 Season 5

July 11, 2010 by · 5 Comments
It now seems clear that season 5 of Stargate SG-1 will be remembered as the one in which something went awry with Daniel Jackson. Lots of behind-the-scenes rumors fueled the idea of cast tension, but whatever the problem, his sudden departure from the show was obviously through a quickly contrived scenario. In retrospect, there must have been a problem for some while before the weird penultimate episode (“Meridian”). Michael Shanks looks frequently bored in his rare moments of individual screen time as he infiltrates a Goa’uld meeting and even when making friends with a creature everyone else wants dead. In fact, there’s only one point when everyone really seems to be having fun, and that’s in the spoof 100th episode “W… More >>

    A remake of the original silent classic (so much so that the famous chariot race is stolen from the original almost shot for shot), the Charlton Heston “Ben-Hur” is so overblown that you may feel the need of an Alka-Seltzer at intermission.

    Stargate SG-1 started on Showtime. Seasons 1-5 are from Showtime. Stargate was taken over by Sci-Fi. Stargate is currently in season 7…so I don’t know why the poster refered to season 8. Anyway, I’m glad to see the series on DVD…even though I’ve recorded them on VHS.

  3. The first three seasons of Stargate are magic, the fourth one isn’t quite as strong but still quite enjoyable, but this fifth season is mediocre overall. Some episodes are good, but others are barely watchable. I would recommend these DVDs to those who just want the complete series. For those seeking after something to watch over and over again, though, stick with the earlier seasons.

  4. This was purchased as a birthday present and the recipient was totally impressed with everything. It arrived in great shape and even faster than I expected.

    Amazon, you’ve done it again!! Thank you

  5. This has got to be one of the finest Biblical epics ever made by Hollywood, back at a time when Christianity still got some respect by Tinseltown. It doesn’t quite end up being one big soap opera like The Ten Commandments sometimes seems. A simple, yet powerful story of a man falsely accused, wrongly convicted and who has one thing on his mind, getting revenge on the “friend” who wrongfully imprisoned his family. Judah Ben-Hur gets the revenge he desired, but he doesn’t gain a sense of fullfillment. His victory leaves him feeling “empty” and hollow. What’s amazing about this movie is that Christ is only featured in a few scenes and has no dialog, but his mere presence has an immense impact on the life of Judah Ben-Hur. From a simple act of giving him a drink of water (which gives him the desire to live) to the time of the crucifixtion when the act is done in reverse.

    Now that Warner Brothers has acquired the rights to a good many of MGM’s films, I wonder when they’ll get around to releasing a new digitally remastered version on DVD. That’s the one film I’m waiting to add to my collection.
