TVonDVD: Farscape: The Complete Series Megaset – They Breathe FIRE??? How Come No One Told Me They Breathe FIRE???

Farscape Megaset

I have loved many TV programs in many genres, but there only a handful I’d want on a desert island: The Twilight Zone, Star Trek: The Original Series; Babylon 5; Firefly, and Farscape. Of the five, Farscape is easily the strangest, most totally wacked out – and therefore, the most fun.

Over its four season run, Farscape gave us the most unusual universe: a universe where dwelt sentient, perambulatory plants; living starships that could spawn offspring; two great villains, and so much more that just listing them could take pages.

DVD REVIEW: Stargate: Continuum: Playing with Time

Stargate: Continuum is the first DTDVD stand-alone adventure of the SG-1 team and it’s a bit of a time traveling doozy! It begins with SG-1 and General Jack O‘Neill [Richard Dean Anderson] attending the extraction ceremony for the last Goa’uld still existing in a Goa’uld System Lord. The Goa’uld is Ba’al [Cliff Simon], or rather, the last clone of Ba’al, who warns them that they’ve made a terrible mistake. As the ceremony proceeds, Vala [Claudia Black] and Teal’c [Christopher Judge] vanish. When members of the Tok’ra begin to disappear, too, the remaining SG-1 members and O’Neill realise that Ba’al has gone into the past to prevent the Stargate from being used – leaving Earth open to complete domination by the Goa’uld.

One of the best things about Stargate time travel tales is that they are usually a lot of fun. Continuum takes that to a whole new level, with appearances by nearly every major character in SG-1 lore – even though many are surprising cameos [check out the appearance of the System Lords, for example]. Also, Continuum is a stand-alone movie, so it’s not wrapping up a cliffhanger – or leaving fans hanging on yet another one.

In the alternate timeline that’s created by Ba’al’s maneuver, we get to meet alternate versions of O’Neill, General Hammond [Don S. Davis], Major-General Landry [Beau Bridges] and even President Henry Hayes [William Devane] – and we learn that, in this timeline, Col. Samantha Carter [Amanda Tapping] was an astronaut who died saving her shuttle crew and Daniel Jackson [Michael Shanks] is a discredited crackpot. Not only that, but Lt.-Col. Cameron Mitchell [Ben Browder] is in a position to create a Grandfather Paradox [look it up] if he screws up.

Stargate: Continuum works on a couple of levels: it’s a solid SG-1 adventure replete with action, humor and wit, and it’s also a breathtaking visual achievement, with some brilliantly shot sequences in the Arctic – and the first ever time that a nuclear submarine has been used in a movie [the captain being played by the sub’s real commander]. The writing is a bit above the average for the series and the cast get to play some interesting variations on their characters – especially, Shanks, whose Daniel Jackson suffers more than usual [even for him]. The direction is, as with the series, pretty snappy. Even the expository scenes are rife with wit and fun. As for the effects, they’re terrific – though they can barely hold their own against the majesty of the Arctic.

Features include: Audio Commentary by Executive Producer/Writer Brad Wright and Director Martin Wood; The Making of Stargate: Continuum Featurette; Stargate Goes to the Arctic Featurette, and The Layman’s Guide to Time Travel.

Stargate: The Ark of Truth – Brilliant? No. Entertaining? Hell, Yeah!

The Ark of Truth Review EclipseMagazine.com DVDs

Stargate: The Ark of Truth – which hits stores on Tuesday – is the direct-to-DVD wrap-up of a number of loose ends that were left unresolved in the series finale of Stargate SG-1. Although Stargate Command was pretty sure they had managed to destroy the actual Ori, there no resolution regarding the evil ascended beings’ religious hierarchy – the Doci and the Priors [and being pretty sure isn’t the same thing as knowing…] – not to mention Adria.
