Stargate SG-U 1.0 Blu-Ray Review

Stargate SG-U 1.0 Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: From the creators of television’s longest running Sci-Fi series, “Stargate SG-1” comes a new story as “SGU 1.0” lands on two-disc Blu-ray and three-disc DVD February 9 from MGM Home Entertainment. Featuring the first 10 episodes, fans will have the opportunity to relive their favorite moments before all-new episodes air in the spring. With a winning combination of Stargate’s pedigree, award-winning cult favorite stars and a bold new look, “SGU 1.0” features appearances by original cast members. Plus meet a brand new all-star cast.

“SGU” is the story of a group of soldiers, scientists and civilians, fleeing an attack, finding themselves stranded billions of miles from Earth on an Ancient ship known as the Destiny. Locked on an unknown course, they must fight to survive and find a way home. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.
 
Review: I remember seeing the original Stargate film in theaters back in the mid-1990s.  It was a great film back in the day, but I had no idea at the time that they would spin it off into so many television franchises.  I didn't think they would end up being successful, I really didn't, but low and behold its still going strong!

This blu-ray represents the first half of season one.  The second half will likely be released in May or June of this year and we'll cover that, as well.  The first half of season one started a bit slow, I won't lie to you.  There were some moments that were absolutely dull.  It picked-up, though and with the events of the mid-season finale in play, I'm really looking forward to finishing up the rest of season one.  If you've missed out, this is your chance to pick it up and get caught up.  If you already saw it and are a Stargate fan, well then I don't need to explain to you how much you need this blu-ray for your collection!

The high-definition transfer looks fantastic on this show.  The special effects really come through.  With an absence of good sci-fi shows, like Star Trek, Stargate is definately one to follow!

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
