Is a Blu-Ray release of SG-1 possible?

I'm not that familiar with the mechanics of how the show was filmed or edited, but (given that SG-A's complete series is or soon will be on Blu-Ray) I wondered if it would be realistic to expect SG-1 to also make it to Blu?

Is there some reason why this would not be possible?

I guess the earlier seasons of SG-1 have the same problem as TNG/DS9/VOY.

But then again there is this:

That's not a product that actually exists. Amazon thinks there will be, but just because a placeholder like that shows up, doesn't mean there is or ever will be that product. Amazon just wants you to sign up to be notified if, IF, it ever comes out. It's not a preorder.

As for SG-1, I see it airing on the HD version of the Sci-Fi Channel all the time but not actually IN high definition. I wonder why they do that.

Yeah but there's no such thing on Amazon for TNG or is there?

^ They pretty much do it for whatever they feel like, AFAIK.

Considering they're still yet to release any TNG/DS9/VOY on Bluray, I doubt MGM would justify it for SG-1 at this stage in the current position. I can't think of any other shows in the same position as TNG/SG-1 that have been released on Bluray yet (feel free to prove me wrong, as I find this kind of thing very interesting from a tech standpoint).

Seasons 8/9/10 of SG-1, and the other two Stargate shows should be already in HD to release, but I think it will be a while before we see the rest.

Re: Is a Blu-Ray release of SG-1 possible?

Atlantis Bluray was just announced: http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releas...tlantis10.html

I doubt SG-1 will be since its SFX were rendered in SD (just like TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT). This means MASSIVE amounts of SFX needs to be redone as well as all post-production.

I believe that all of the seasons bar the first three (which were shot on 16mm film) have been broadcast in HD, but I could be wrong there.

Re: Is a Blu-Ray release of SG-1 possible?

I see no one has mentioned the Children of The Gods - Final Cut DVD/Blu Ray which was remastered in high definition/16:9 and all the good stuff. Personally, I thought it was an improvement (although I would have liked them to keep the sexual organs on the inside gag, simply because its just so ridiculous).

Well anyway, that was released and I'm sure it was meant to be a litmus test for an SG-1 remaster. However, considering how poorly it was marketed, and how every single SG-1 movie release got leaked online weeks before it was out in stores I don't think it did well enough to justify a complete remaster.

Re: Is a Blu-Ray release of SG-1 possible?

Was COTG actually released in High Def? I know they rescanned a lot of the film, but they also kept a lot of the original effects, which I would have expected would be in a similar situation to TNG.

Mind you, if they can easily release SG-1 in high definition, I'm certainly not complaining.

Re: Is a Blu-Ray release of SG-1 possible?

Well I'll be damned. So they didn't release it on blu-ray. Where the hell is the point in that then?! Also that Pyramid shot did look shit, even if some of the other FX were alright.

I have no idea then. If I can get the Blu ray set of SGA cheapish like I did BSG though, I might pick it up.

That was so fucked up. The Pyramid shot was from the movie and looked awesome. And they replaced it with crap.

And they had better ones from later in the series, if they really wanted to divorce it from the movie. The Pyramid looked fine in "Full Circle," for instance. Good enough for them to have a shot of it blowing up in the credits for the next two years.

Count me in on this too. It wasn't a terrible CG shot in of itself, but it looked so fake compared to the original movie shot, which looked fantastic and REAL. Maybe there was an issue with licensing the shot again? (I'm making up crap here).

Aside from that, all of the CG replacements were much better that I can recall, but I didn't like some of the edits, such as removing the "private parts" line. They made several references to the line in the series, so it made no sense to remove it. A couple of other edits I wasn't crazy about, like removing the part with Teal'c handing over his staff to Hammond. I think that was a good moment.

I picked it up pretty cheap on DVD, and I mostly got it for the commentary, so I was happy with it. For full price though, it didn't add much, especially since it's still only SD.

They took out the nude scene, but then stuck in a scene with a naked female Jaffa instead with a strategically placed strap covering the corpse's breasts. Things like that I find annoying, they remove a nude scene that actually worked, and replaced it with one that has nudity conspicuous by it's absence. If they're going to have that strap there, at least stick it on the male too so it isn't so obvious.
