Stargate SG-U 1.5 (MGM Blu-ray Set)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Episodes: D



In what ought to be the final Stargate TV show, SG-U 1.5 finishes where the 1.o set left off.  We covered that Blu-ray at this link:





I was hoping that maybe it might get better, but I have not liked any of the series derived from the original film, which was only so good to begin with, so it is no surprise that even with Robert Carlyle, the show is another over-dark mix of formula writing, tired digital effects and everything we have seen before in played out TV space operas.  Lou Diamond Philips is back and Richard Dean Anderson even shows up, but unless you really, really, really like the show, skip this set too.


The 1080p 1.78 X 1 AVC @ 26 MBPS (higher than the last set, but to no avail) digital High Definition image was shot on High Definition and is plastered with all kinds of tired, predictable, lame digital effects, but it is consistent with the first set.  The DTS-HD Master Audio (MA) 5.1 track is actually more restricted than the last set, which was not that good to begin with, so we get “TV sound”: when we could have had more.  Among the extras are several making-of featurettes, audio commentary tracks on all episodes, a diary and Blu-ray exclusive game.
