  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
This five-disc set offers the entire first season of the popular science fiction television program Stargate SG-1 The show is based on the 1994 movie Stargate and tells the continuing story of the intergalactic gateway that links planets from other solar systems to ours. Colonel Jack O

DVD Picture:
As a whole, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVDs exhibit generally pleasing image quality. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. Images are generally sharp, with good contrast and shadow delineation. The darkest scenes are wanting in more visual information. The series is wanting in a smoother, more natural quality, exhibiting noise that creates a rough appearance, Pixelization and minor aliasing problems are detected at times. There is also edge enhancement apparent. (Suzanne Hodges)
