Please inspect all the discs when you receive your package. There are a fair number of complaints on amazon about the DVDs being scratched, damaged, and unplayable. The problems seem to be from the factory packing process not the actual shipping process through amazon.

Will SG-1 ever go on blu-ray? Most of the chatter say never, but anybody have any other news?

I remeber watching an interview with richard anderson. That only the last few seasons were recorded in high definition. So I am not sure if you can simply upgrade to hd with out the old stock being up to par in the first place.

As a summary of what most people said, basically the first couple seasons weren't really filmed in HD, so they would have to be remastered or something.

Also the special effets were also mainly in SD? so they would have to done too.

Seeing how Stargate Atlantis already had blu-ray, it would most likely not happen, but I was just wondering if anyone had any contradicting info

Buyer beware. Please read some of the reviews on Amazon for the packaging these sets come in. According to many, many people on there the packaging is mostly cardboard and some of the discs are arriving in scratched condition and some are even unplayable.

I ordered SG-1...I want Atlantis on Blu-ray, so I'll wait.

SG-1 will never hit Blu-ray.

This is a great deal. I got my set a few years ago on a sale. It true about the scratched and smudged disks. All played fine but they looked used even though it was new.

Tempted to get Atlantis but I will just wait for a deal on the blueray. Since the dvd version had the same problems as th sg1 dvds.

If there was enough of a potential paying customer base, SG-1 would be out on blu-ray. Right now, with the prices of many blu-rays tanking because of low demand, no production studio in their right mind would pour a ton of money into remastering the entire SG-1 series to the blu-ray format. On the other hand, Stargate: Continuum did get a blu-ray release with the Amazon sales price $35.

At the Gateworld Forum site, one poster wrote that seasons 1-3 of SG-1 were filmed using 16MM film, with the special effects using 35MM film. That poster wrote that a 2K or preferably 4K scan would solve most problems and the blu-ray producers could pass on recreating the special effects. That poster is living in a dream world. Creating digital intermediate scans for the 66 episodes in the first three seasons of this series is very unlikely now. Only if some Internet billionaire who is a fan of the series finances the conversion to blu-ray will you have a chance to buy a 1080p version of the complete SG-1 series. IMHO.
