Well I am starting to watch the DVD's and when I checked the order on the box to the order on this site, the ones on the box seem to be out of order. Anyone else notice that? For instance the DVD's have "The Nox" as episode 12, but this site has it as episode 8. I think I only found one more episode that is out of order. I am also wondering will I miss anything by watching them out of order? Thanks.

Most of the eps. are stand alone, so there shouldn't be too much of a problem.
However, I have season 1 on video, and according to that set, the episode after the opener is The Nox, and The Enemy Within is ep 6, and that really confused me!

Since I have long lost my VHS copies off of Showtime from the original airings, I have to trust (and I do) Gateworld's air dates. That said, the episodes on the DVD may be in production order? I never noticed. Like SeaBee said, most of the episodes - especially in Season 1 - are stand-alones, so it matters less than with other seasons. If you're talking about the R1 DVDs, I've watched them all (Seasons 1-6) in order and you don't miss anything that way.

If I recall, SciFi has always shown the Season 5 episode Fail Safe before the two-parter Summit/Last Stand, although it is the opposite (and correct) order on the R1 DVDs. This can be confusing if you're paying attention because there is a comment in Fail Safe that makes no sense if you haven't seen Summit/Last Stand. However, it isn't pivotal to understanding Fail Safe. ;)

I know my season one boxset is messed up. They relaunched the set about three months after they noticed the mistake but there aren't so many of these available now

My goodness, I never noticed! :eek: I did buy my set early...I think I even pre-ordered it. Given the episode numbers, my box set is in this order (21 episodes for S1 since COTG is considered one episode):

1 Children of the Gods
2 The Enemy Within
3 Emancipation
4 The Broca Divide
5 The First Commandment
8 Brief Candle
6 Cold Lazarus
9 Thor's Hammer
10 The Torment of Tantalus
11 Bloodlines
12 Fire and Water
7 The Nox
13 Hathor
15 Cor-ai
14 Singularity
16 Enigma
18 Tin Man
17 Solitudes
19 There But For the Grace of God
20 Politics
21 Within the Serpent's Grasp

By the time the box set came out, it'd been years since I'd seen them anyway. Now I'll have to watch the whole season again just to see them all in order. Oh darn. :p

i do know that if you buy the individual dvd's they separate the mid-season two parters to ensure you buy both dvds.

Are you telling me, that if I had to buy another copy of the SG-1 season 1 set, it wouldn't be in the above order? I never saw season 1 in order on TV, so I figured the DVD order was the aired order. :confused:

No, it would be in that order. However, that is not the original airing order. It doesn't matter much for season 1, though. Most eps are standalone so you'd never notice the small shuffling of episodes.

Unlike the UK VHS releases, in which S1 is screwed up beyond belief.

It didn't particulary matter as long as the finale was the finale!

The order does matter on a number of season 1 episodes, just not on those that were placed out of order on the DVDs (fortunately). For instance, The Enemy Within needs to come immediately after Children of the Gods. Torment of Tantalus needs to come after Thor's Hammer (because of a reference to that episode). Enigma needs to come a while after The Nox. And of course, the last three episodes are one continuous story arc.
