I must say, to anyone that appreciates good drama programming, that Stargate SG-1 is one of the best television shows in the past 10 years; hands down. The writing is superb and the acting equally great. The characters in the program are easy to relate to, love, hate and feel for. The show is action packed, stays true to being ¿real¿ for a science fiction show, and is not unnecessarily filled with vulgar language or inappropriate conduct. I tried watching it while it was on weekly, but had a hard time catching it every week, and had been so excited when it all finally came out on DVD; the item is a great buy! However, I do have one word of ¿caution¿ to those interested in this specific product (e.g. this series set); the packaging information is misleading. The item case is not metal, it is cardboard, and the disks are not in protective sleeves but just setting in cardboard pockets. Although I¿ve been able to watch all the DVD¿s, many were scratched in one for or another during shipping. So, where as I recommend the material and the show hands down, I do urge caution in purchasing the entire ¿series¿ in this set up.
This is such a great show, i would recommend this to anyone who is a stargate sg1 fan. The complete series comes in a cardboard box with all 212 episodes and 4 extra special features disks. There is two big, fat books of dvds and it comes with a booklet that lists all of the 212 episodes in order of the original air dates. Also, underneath all of the episodes names, it has one to two sentences about each episode too. to conclude this review i have a word of caution, the dvds are NOT in protective sleeves and are just sitting in the cardboard slots. so becareful when taking the dvds out and putting them back in. All in all the dvd box set is wonderful! Enjoy!!!!
the disks season 6 and later are all scratched and don't play right. I'm highly disappointed in this purchase. It's been longer than 30 days since I purchased this item (and who can watch 20-some disks in 30 day?) so it can't be returned.
Very enjoyable (and time consuming.) Before the advent of streaming video it was a great way to catch up on early, or missed, episodes. Every episode, featured documentaries, deleted scenes, you name it - this has it! The fancy box keep all of the 54 DVDs organized and out of the way.
The product was in perfect shape and the shipping was fast.

We have not been able to start the series yet (we have seen most of it already) but the package is wonderful. It looks great and my family is looking forward to starting it. We love Stargate SG-1 and it makes a great "family time" in our house. The series is not appropriate for the young because it can be intense and violent at times. The value was good because I saved some money - instead of buying it season by season.
I gave this to my Fiance' for his Birthday,and he was thrilled to have all the Stargate S-G 1's...the only thing I was a little upset about was, that it was suppossed to come in a METAL BOX...well, it didn't...it's CARDBOARD...kind of disappointing...if I hadn't of read it was a metal box, and it said cardboard, I still would have bought them for him...I was just looking forward to it being metal and easier to take care of them for years...otherwise he loved them!!!
I received the set as a gift, and it has kept me entertained like no other DVD set. I have always loved Richard Dean Anderson, and he is perfect in the role of Jack O'Neill. I haven't had a chance to view the extra features, yet. If you have ever watched even one episode of SG-1 and enjoyed it, then you should definitely get the whole set and watch it beginning to end. It makes you wonder if some of this is really true. And even if it isn't, it's still wonderfully fun to watch.
You will just love this if you are a Stargate fan. It includes all the missed scenes that were eaten up by the commercials on TV. You also get a couple of extra shows that were never aired. If you are a Stargater -- then you JUST MUST get this for your collection. I gave 3 stars on the ages because young children are so impressionable and should not view these CD's (that's my opinion of course).
