    I'm not the kind of guy that LOOKs for these things but it certainly was a perk when I was watching the pilot of StarGate SG-1.

    It certainly did catch my attention (being a typical male).

    Perhaps I got StarGate XX-1 instead LOL

    I bet sales will skyrocket now! :)

    I don't think that friend Rod realizes that this disc has been out for two years, maybe? Specifically, it was released to stores on 2/29/2000 (last Leap Year day). Sales skyrocketed long ago, encouraging MGM to put out the SG-1 Season 1 box set.
    As for WHO was nekkid, it was Vaitiare Bandera, playing http://www.gateworld.net/characters/share.shtml
    Nice, ummmmm, scenes! :b

    Actually, that full frontal shot was in the broadcast when it was first shown on Showtime. I was hooked from that point on. [​IMG]

    That was the only episode with something that risque. From then on they toned it down so it would fit better into syndication.

    Now if they'ld only get the rest of the seasons out. Who's idea was it that the fans would find it acceptable to release them 18mos apart?

    Actually Season 1 came out last may, so it'll be more like 15 months. They bumped it up to give SciFi a chance to put repeat syndication ahead of the box sets.

    The big problem has been that MGM's schedual is about 9mo ahead of release. Therefore they saw how the initial SG-1 disc sold, greenlighted the box set 15 months later ( it takes about 3 months to get back exact figures), released Season 1, got back the figures, and away we go again.

    From what I hear we should see them on a faster schedual now.

    Still, even 15mos is way too long. The only reason why I'm buying it on DVD is because I don't have cable.

    I'm beginning to consider selling the first box and using the money to buy something else, like, say, Red Dwarf when it arrives.

    I saw the pilot when it first was shown on Showtime and remember those 2 nude scenes.

    I watched only a few more and gave up it.

    Eric, you know it airs in syndication on UHF stations right? Usually Saturday afternoon. They're a season behind Showtime

    Yes, I realize they're in syndication, in fact I mentioned it myself, but a number of things ruin it for me:

    1. Local station doesn't run them in any particular order, and they're often pre-empted by sports events.

    2. Commercials.

    3. 4:3 and poor video quality(love those 16:9 enhanced DVDs).

    Yes, I like the show, and will probably get them now if they start really appearing every 6mos or so apart. They'll probably do that once they stop making new episodes.

    The problem with syndication is you don't get to see the shows in proper order. That's why I bought the box set. I don't have Showtime and syndication was either random or they would play them in order every night and I would have to record them.

    I consider SG-1 is on of the best Sci-Fi shows of all time - must better then most star trek and especially Deep Space Nine (State Employees in Space).

    Rod, yes you do. It's syndicated just like "Star Trek:The Next Generation" "VIP" "Highlander: The Series" etc. They just play the episodes a year behind is all

    When SciFi airs them, it will also be in order

    What is the proper order?? The StarGate website lists them in that order?

    Jeff - I'm 3 years behind! I have the best of all worlds - I've only seen like 5 or 6 total episodes at random. Not having Showtime and I missed it, then just didn't pay any attention to it in syndication.

    My schedule is always in flux so I can never be sure what I can watch (except Survivor and Amazing Race which I always apply for) so it's hard to really get involved.

    I know the Stargate website at least lists Showtime order

    Syndication order is valid as well, as it's organized by the producers.

    DVD's are widescreen something like 1.78-1 Dolby but not 5.1 - still better then off the tube though

    Rod, they only messed up a few episodes:

    No. 6 Cold Lazarus, aired on 8/29

    No. 7 The Nox, aired on 9/12

    No. 8 Brief Candle, aired on 9/19

    No. 9 Thor's Hammer, aired on 9/26

    These four appear on the disk in this order:

    No. 6, 8, 9 & 7.

    If they do this again, it is possible that something will 'show up' before it was first seen.
