Stargate SG-1 - The Complete Series Collection by Various Directors & Writers
Review by Charles Mohapel
MGM DVD  ISBN/ITEM#: B000TJBNHQ
Date: 04 March 2008 List Price $329.98 Amazon US / Amazon UK / Show Article /

While nobody can like all 214 episodes of Stargate SG-1 equally, we all have our favorites, and this Complete Series Collection gives us every single episode of all 10 seasons and a lot more. You also get all of the bonus materials from the 10 single-season sets, plus four additional Special Features Discs and a really cool-looking cardboard box with a 3-D Stargate on it and holding all 54 DVDs (Region 1). Also included is a beautiful booklet, listing all the episodes in order by season, as well as giving a brief synopsis of each episode and listing what is on each and every disc.

My personal favorites include anything from the Directors Series with Martin Wood, for the simple reason that he makes you laugh at the same time as you learn how a show is made from the other side of the camera. If you have an interest in working in the industry in props, special effects, CGI, stunts, makeup, etc., each of these crucial departments gets its moment in the sun. Speaking as a photographer, I've picked up a few more tricks of the trade.
