STARGATE SG-1 Season 10 was a step up from season 9. The only major complaint is the final episode (UNENDING) is a weak finale
to the series. The upside is that two STARGATE SG-1 DVD movies (the first, THE ARK OF TRUTH will wrap up the Ori storyline)
have been made and will come out next year.
The SG-1 team becomes a stronger unit this last season with Colonel Cameron Mitchell (Ben Browder), Dr. daniel Jackson
(Michael Shanks), Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping), Teal'c (Christopher Judge), and Vala (Claudia Black). The
SG-1 team is sent to other worlds through wormholes formed by the Stargate. The new threat since the start of season 9 is
the Ori (a rival of the Ancients). The Ori wants to take over this galaxy and will kill anyone who doesn't except the word
of Origin (the Ori religon). They must have people to believe in them. Their armies are lead by a half Ori, half human woman
named Adria (the slightly miscast Morena Baccarin) who is the daughter of Vala. The SG-1 team hunts for Merlin's weapon
as they are desperate to stop the advance of the Ori in the Milky Way.
STAND OUT EPISODES: 200, THE QUEST, THE ROAD NOT TAKEN, THE SHROUD, BAD GUYS, and DOMINION.
SPECIAL FEATURES: An abundance of extras are always on a STARAGTE SG-1 set. Season 10 has audio commentaries for each
episode. It is always worth it when actress Amanda Tapping joins in for the audio commentaries. Disc 5 has an extra treat-
deleted scenes for three episodes (with optional audio commentary): MORPHUES, MOMENTO MORI, and THE QUEST.
Photo and production design galleries are included on each disc. The DIRECTORS SERIES featurettes focus on five episodes-
INSIDERS, MEMENTO MORI, COMPANY OF THIEVES, THE SHROUD, and UNENDING. Other featurettes are THE ORI: A NEW ENEMY (the crew
talks about the background and development Ori and design of the Ori weapons, clothes, and ships- plenty of clips from season
9 and 10), STARGATE SG-1: BEHIND THE 200TH ( a behind-the-scenes look at the episode 200- my favorite featurette of the DVD
set)), SETTING THE MOOD WITH JIM MENDARI, and LIFE AS A TECH WITH GARY JONES. Also a trailer for STARGATE SG-1: THE ARK
OF TRUTH is hown before the menu on disc 1.
FINAL ANALYSIS: Any SG-1 fan should own at least one season of the show on DVD and some want every season. Season 10
doesn't disappoint. It's a fine end with many DVD extras like previous sets. Too bad they couldn't include a blooper's reel.
