    I just finished my first SG-1 disc, and popped in #2...did anyone else notice how on the first disc the eps are numbered "Pilot, episode 1, episode 2" and then the second disc starts off with "episode 4". Just found that odd they let that slip by.

    Episode 3 is an easter egg.

    Just kidding. I loved this show so much when I watched it, I didn't notice the episode numbering at all. I'm happy they are presented in order. I'd be happier if forthcoming seasons came forth sooner.

    Corin Nemec has been confirmed for season 6.

    Probably because disc 1 was authored about 18 months before the others. Originally it was a stand-alone product to "test the waters"

    Jeff, if I remember correctly the stand alone first disc of Stargate SG-1 is presented in 4:3 AR. The ones in the boxed sets are all 16:9.
    And yes...let them bring on S2 [​IMG]

    I have watched the show from the beginning on ShowTime but must admit I can't remember the broadcast order.

    Is it true that the box set is actually in syndication order and not the order in which they were first shown on ShowTime?

    I know some one here knows the answer to this question.

    Yep! That would be me. I wrote down all of the orignal air dates. The episode The Nox was #7 and Brief Candle #8.

    I still can't understand why they did that and I fear that if they do it again, we're going to know something before we are supposed to, or something like that.

    What is the OAR of SG1?

    Was it filmed in 16:9 and cropped to 4:3 in syndication, or was it filmed in 4:3 and cropped to 16:9 for the DVD. (I've only seen it in syndication, so I have no idea what it looked like on Showtime.)

    Jeff: Most likely, it was shot similiarly to open matte... shot in 16x9 but composed for 4x3. In which case, they're just opening up the sides of the frame and adding blackbars.

    From what I have read "Stargate SG1" has always been filmed in Widescreen / HDTV and cropped for broadcast to American TV.

    I just wished that a person did not have to purchase box sets...
