    Being a fan of the series I pre-ordered this DVD. When it arrived I placed the DVD on my Samsung 709 and the Stargate intro began. The disc is split into three episodes, one being the pilot and episode one and two from season one. The video quality is good on all three but on the box it says the screen format is standard but in fact it`s widescreen. The sound is clear and crisp although its only 2 channel surround sound. The opening titles on episode one and two have been changed instead of the Ra mask like the opening titles of the film. The pilot have been given a rating of R which I think means 18 because a couple of scenes in there. One being the moment when Daniels wife gets infected with Goa`uld larvae with no clothes on, and the other when Kawalsky gets infected too. I can remember both these scenes being cut down when it was shown on Sky1 and Channel 4. Now for the extras, there isn`t any! It would have been nice to have extras on the dvd like behind the scenes or even a trailer but no nothing. If you love the series and haven`t got on video then this dvd is for you. If you want a changed from Star Trek then try this, but if got the video then don`t bother as there are no extras.

    The movie length episode, Children of the Gods makes for an excellent link between the original movie and the TV Series, very enjoyable to watch, and the 2 episodes on this DVD are excellent in the beginning of the building of the characters that make up SG1, highly recommended.
