If you enjoy the Stargate SG-1 series, you will enjoy this spin-off. Being a big fan myself, my biggest concern was that I wouldn't buy into this new look-alike cutting into the original stargate series--I was wrong. It is almost completely detatched from the original show, has an all new bigger and badder evil race to battle and has more civilian control, which gives the characters' problem-solving strategies a new perspective. Plus, they're in another galaxy, and the worlds are completely different!

If you've never seen Stargate before, I suggest you check it out...this show takes off at the end of season 7 on the original series. Watching SG-1 isn't completely necessary in order to follow this show, but it would help a lot.

One thing I about the show that isn't so great is that it seems the producers have gotten a little cheaper on the special effects--the CG is pretty obvious and they use a lot of it. However, being a TV show, I wouldn't really expect special effects on the same magnitude of major motion pictures.

Also, there's the Atlantis movie floating around...if you're buying the season 1 box set, you don't need to buy the movie. The movie is just the pilot episode, and it's included in the set, so save your money.

Overall? Go for it--it's worth checking out at least once!

Yes this show isn't SG-1 and sadly some people can't seem to get pass that. The show is different enough from Sg-1 that it can hold its own and not be considered a rip-off or a clone yet retain the same Stargate feel that SG-1 has. This show is actually what rekindled my interest in the Stargate franchise, you've got characters that actually aren't perfect, that make mistakes and are easy to relate to. There mostly ordinary people in an extraordinary situation where they slowly come togethor and become a family of sorts. The strength of this show is the character development, which actually is even more noticeable in the second season but the first season does a pretty good job. Probably the best episodes story wise are Before I Sleep and Letter from Pegasus which are perhaps the best clip show episodes ive seen in the Stargate franchise.

If you can accept that this show isn't actually SG-1 and really we don't need two Sg-1's bcse we already have one, try this show out, you might enjoy it. The show has fun,attractive and real characters that actually grow and change and there is reasonable continuity theoughout the season which is important to you if you don't like shows that you leave you guessing for a long time.

When I first considered buying the series, Stargate: Atlantis, I thought it would be a knockoff of the SG1 series. It has it similarities but I found it to be spellbinding and a great series in its own right.

The star gate is digital and the entire setup seems more modern that the standard stargate. The crew interact on several occasions with the original cast but the storyline is focused on staying alive in a hostile environment while in another galaxy, the Pegasus system. The life sucking Wraith's want to take Atlantis so they can gate to Earth for a new feeding ground. The players try to survive while unlocking the secrets of Atlantis and the Ancients, all while have a good plot line for each episode, which includes gating to other worlds and meeting new people.

This series might not be as enjoyable to anyone who is not familiar with the SG1 series.

My only problem with the series is that year 2 is not available so I can see how they survived the latest attack in the typical "to be continued" episode.

A note about the pilot, don't buy it if you are going to buy the first year, Its included on the first disk.

I think this series has as much potential as the original series and have no doubt that I will purchase any subsequent years that are released. That's the highest rating I can give any movie, the promise to spend my hard earned money on buying it.

By now I'll assume that you've read the description and know what the show is about. Not only do you get all 20 Season One episodes, you get wonderful commentary and other special features that make this DVD set a "must have" for Stargate Atlantis fans. So let me tell you about the special features.

Season One - Volume 1, Disks 1:

Audio commentary for "Rising Parts 1 and 2" by Director Martin Wood and Actor Joe Flanigan. (Excellent commentary, lots of trivia and explanations of why they did things the way they did.
