Hey Tanith, and other SGU Lovers...

..... Put your money where your mouth is. As a diehard fan of SGU, Show us a receipt of your purchase, for the BluRay edition of SGU 1.0 and an image of you holding the DVD's proudly. (Don't worry, we have enough Photoshop experts in here to detect creative "modifications", so don't bother with those). Y'know, money talks, bullshit walks..

SGU Sucks
SGU is trying to rip people off with half season DVD/BD charging full price, calling it  "Stargate SG-U: 1.0" instead of "Stargate SG-U: 0.5".

From the bad decisions, bad plot, bad script, bad lighting, bad camera, to this balantan rip off, it's clear GREED has taken over the SGU production team and their board room. Sure money is always a big factor, but it's all about $ now, and they suck at it, HAHA.

Misleading Title!!! This is not Season One!, December 5, 2009
By R. Medcalf
(REAL NAME)  

This is only HALF of the first season. The title of this item says "Stargate SG-U: Season One (2009)" But later down in the Editorial review it states that it's a three disc set that will include 10 episodes from Season 1.

Season 1 will have 20 episodes in it and this DVD set is set for release in Feb 2010, before all 20 episodes of the first season have even aired on TV.

Please let them know you want full seasons and not half seasons on DVD by not purchasing this.

I cant really write a review of season one yet because it's not done airing but from what little we've seen so far it looks promising. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and hopefully the entire season on one reasonably priced dvd set.

This halfseason release is an insult to Stargate fans

===============================
From IMDB:

I've seen alot of complaints over the decision to split the season in half. And I'm wondering about what you think a half season should be priced. Today I looked around the dvd boxsets in futureshop for comparison, here's what I can remember:
-true blood season one, 12 episodes $56.99
-big love season three, 10 episodes $59.99
-battlestar galactica season 2.5, 10 episodes $44.99
-BSG season 4.5, 10 episodes $40.00
-dollhouse season one, 15 episodes $45.99

Now these prices may be wrong, they come from my head, and the store I went into could be overly priced. So here's some dvd prices from amazon Canada. The prices are the reduced price then the supposed full price. Episode count at the beginning.
12-True Blood: The Complete First Season CDN$ 49.99/$ 74.98
12-Big Love: The Complete First Season CDN$ 50.49 /$ 74.98
12-Big Love: The Complete Second Season CDN$ 39.99/$ 74.98
10-Big Love: The Complete Third Season CDN$ 39.99/$ 74.98
12-Dexter: The Third Season CDN$ 29.99/$65.99
8-Nip/Tuck: Season 5, Part Two CDN$ 36.99/ $ 49.98
13-Mad Men: Season 1 CDN$ 27.99/$ 39.95
8-Eureka: Season 3.0 CDN$ 25.99/$ 33.99
10- Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.5 CDN$ 39.99/$ 57.99
10-Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.5 CDN$ 39.99/$ 57.99

And of course Stargate universe CDN$ 41.99/$59.98

I think we would have to wait a while for those pics coz I don't believe them discs will be available for at least two months. I could be mistaken ofcourse.

SG1 - Season 5          €44,95

Yeah I realise they're mostly the same.
Also I purchased most Star Trek boxsets for somewhere between 33 and 40 euros a piece.
I think it's a fair price for a COMPLETE season boxset.
What anyone would want with half a season is beyond me.
And why anyone would pay the same price as for a whole season is just plain unbelievable.
