How can it be that MGM supplies any service with the 4:3 episodes? It’s utterly ridiculous.

Correction: “Children Of The Gods Final Cut” is no longer available at Amazon, either prime video nor DVD.

On Amazon Prime Video (U.S.) “Children of the Gods” (under Season 1) is definitely the Final Cut. It starts with the orbital shot of Earth.

Its final cut, the original was broken down into two clean segments, the way this one flows straight through in a 16:9 is all the proof you need that its the Final Cut

Thanks for the post. That is so unfortunate, I has just started rewatching Atlantis! And without Hulu, I won’t be able to finish.

I dont get what the hell is wrong with Amazon and MGM. Just mid way last year amazon did a scifi series popular poll ranking and SG1 was like #4 out of 16 series.

The whole property has been a fan favorite and constantly rewatched, and amazon was the only source of the redone 16:9’s.

When it was leaving in december i was so sad, then it came back, only for me to relive the same feelings again!?

This isnt even a 1 year addition, a 2 month addon for a IP? Who even does that

No last-minute reprieve – looks like Stargate streaming on Prime is “unavailable” as of Sunday morning. :(

I was rewatching Sg1 and SGA from november when the first removal notices started. Im just glad i got through 2 runs of of both before removal. (was starting 2nd SGU run for s**ts and giggles but yeah) Its s***ty and awful but at least netflix has sg1. (Also has original fifth race backwards langauge talking asgard xD) That all said, sg1 has turned into my “fall asleep to noise” on my tablet. The 4:3 original version is a far cry from how great the 16:9 redone version was that was on amazon. Well done Amazon and MGM. Both companies… Read more »

two runs of both in 3 months? Even with a pandemic, you need to get out more. Or get a woman.

Stargate fans are literally the only ones dumb enough to PREFER altered versions of their show. Seriously, what do you think you are getting with your 16:9? It was NEVER INTENDED to be shown in widescreen. Therefore, the director(s) always framed the relevant action within the 4:3 lines on their cameras/monitors. So seeing stuff off to the sides is useless.You are seeing information that is in no way pertinent to the plot. Or worse, they are FAKING widescreen by cropping the 4:3 into 16:9. In which case, you are LOSING information at the top or bottom of the screen. Simpsons… Read more »

lakawak: Your tone whenever you post here is aggressively rude. I’d like you to maintain a modicum of respect for your fellow fans if you want your posts approved. You’ve already been shown that SG-1 was shot in 16:9 with protection for 4:3. The edge of this image is not extraneous material in the eyes of the director, the editor, the producer, or the director of photography. Nor has a 4:3 image been cropped to fake a widescreen image. (I personally saw the monitors on set.) MGM has also never sold 4:3 edits. This edit was probably a concession to… Read more »
