Overview

The Stargate SG-1: Season 3 box set utilizes a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer that improves considerably over the original television version. The colors are much brighter and help to make the space shots more impressive. The one downside of this transfer is a small level of grain in certain darker scenes. It never creates a major distraction, but does slightly lessen the overall experience. The excellent 5.1-channel Dolby Surround transfer helps to craft an entertaining audio presentation. The Stargate moments are especially worthwhile, with the effects emanating well from the rear speakers. Although slightly below the premier movie tracks, this transfer provides a surprising level of complexity. This set once again drops the ball and lacks the inclusion of any feature-length commentaries or extensive documentaries. The lone extras are three featurettes that provide worthwhile information but fall short of the desired material. Titled as "Secret Files of the SGC," the pieces quickly cover a topic and provide quick interviews with the series' creators and actors. The first entry runs for about 14 minutes and discusses the character of Colonel Jack O'Neill. Richard Dean Anderson seems very down-to-earth when describing the show's intelligence and sense of humor. The second featurette is titled the "Secrets of the Stargate Universe" and covers the writing process. It also discusses certain episodes that rank among their favorites. Finally, "Personnel Files" has the actors and crew describing various anecdotes from the series.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
If you thought you'd seen the last of Colonel Jack O'Neill after director Roland Emmerich's 1994 blockbuster Stargate, you were sadly mistaken. In the able hands of creators Jonathan Glassner and Brad Wright (Outer Limits), Stargate has become a thriving television enterprise, consistently offering up imaginative plotlines and old-school sci-fi entertainment. Colonel O'Neill (played with charismatic flair by MacGyver star Richard Dean Anderson) leads Air Force Team SG-1 through a series of interstellar portals, or "Stargates," keeping the galactic balance in check as they sail through time. Three of the third season's finer hours are "Forever in a Day," in which Daniel (Michael Shanks) sees his long lost wife Sha're during a rescue captured Abydonians; "Point of View," an alternate reality trip which finds Carter (Amanda Tapping) in top secret Area 51; and "Nemesis" the season finale, wherein O'Neill's ship is suddenly overrun by nasty metallic bugs called Replicators. This five-disc set compiles all 22 episodes from Stargate's third season, and deftly synthesizes the plot threads from Seasons One and Two.
