The DVD release of the direct-to-DVD science fiction movie, Stargate SG-1: Continuum, has some pluses to it with the included special features. This movie stars Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, and Christopher Judge, all reprising their characters from the TV series, Stargate SG-1.
Many of the individual DVD releases for the series include commentary, but the one for the movie is actually one of their best. I was shocked actually that Brad Wright and Martin Wood (the writer and director) did a good job of presenting discussion about various parts of the production, including the actors and the special effects.
The Making of Stargate Continuum and Stargate Goes to the Arctic are both good featurettes, each containing interviews and information that covers the whole range of production. In my view, the featurettes are worth buying the DVD.
I don’t have the same warm feeling for another featurette called The Layman’s Guide to Time Travel. It didn’t help me to understand anything, nor did it explain away the movie’s biggest plot hole.
I do like the packaging as well. The extras and commentary were very entertaining. What is missing is the inclusion of deleted scenes. They have them, and they should have been here.
