Special features include a feature commentary track by Writer Brad Wright and Director Martin Wood; the following featurettes: The Making Of Stargate Continuum (23 minutes), Stargate Goes To The Arctic (22 minutes), and The Layman's Guide To Travel (nine minutes); and additional previews.
In Stargate Continuum, the crew of SG-1 attends the execution of Ba'al (Simon), the last of the Goa'uld System Lords, when Teal'c (Judge) and Vala (Black) inexplicably disappear into thin air. An elite military unit consisting of Carter (Tapping), Jackson (Shanks), and Mitchell (Browder) race back to Earth only to find that history has been changed, and the Stargate Program has never existed. Now it is up to the earthbound members of SG-1 to find an answer to the mystery of who altered the Earth's timeline and why they did it. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows fair resolution, but the images do look rather soft. Fleshtones appear to be sunburnt, but different hues are distinct. Colors are saturated well. Black levels are elevated slightly and near-black shadows are crushed. Heavy grain is noticeable throughout, but in darker scenes it is very heavy. Occasional source element artifacts are recognizable as well. Edge enhancement can be recognized, but it is only a distraction on high-contrast transitions. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #30 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because of the honest reviews on home theatre components and the great one-on-one interviews. I subscribe to several home theatre magazines, but hands down Widescreen Review is always a must-read every month, and for that I thank you.
