Hello Gateworld members, I'm currently on my 3rd watch of SG-1... original airings, Hulu and now DVDs!
I was looking around for Stargate merchandise when I came across the UK boxed set. This set is 60 discs including the 2 direct to disc movies. Seasons 2 through 9 are spread across 6 discs each instead of 5 discs per season as it was released in the US. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about why this is different? Specifically is there any better encoding quality with some of these episodes? The US discs have as many as 5 episodes per disc whereas the UK seems to be 4 at most with the extra disc.
I'd assume they were cut from the same master-- I'm just thinking about the digital compression when authored to the discs. I do also understand that seasons 1-3 were shot on 16mm film but is this responsible for all the noise I see on these episodes?
Has anyone ever seen both releases?
