Continuing straight forward from the cliffhanger at the end of Season 1, Stargate Atlantis continues to bring more elements from the Stargate universe and opens up new questions regarding the Wraith, the Genii, and the dark turn that Lt. Aiden Ford (played by Rainbow Sun Francks) has taken in this action-driven season. New elements are skillfully introduced with the addition of the Daedalus, a brand-new battlecruiser commanded by Col. Steven Caldwell (Mitch Pillegi). A runner named Ronon Dex (Jason Momoa) joins the cast of Atlantis along with former recurring cast member Paul McGillion as the loveable Scottsman Dr. Carson Beckett. As a strong fan of Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate SG-1, I can confidentally say that this series is well worth the time for any sci-fi fan or anyone with an interest in action programs.

The second season of Stargate Atlantis begins on an adrenaline high with the third and final part of Season One's "The Siege" and the action doesn't end with the season opener. One character departs the show as a regular to make room for model, turned bad-boy, Jason Momoa, who plays Ronon Dex, a Wraith Runner; while a new group of the Atlantis Expedition arrives from Earth aboard the newest ship in the fleet, the Daedelus. This season, helped by the amazing chemistry of the cast, shows its maturity early with story lines that can be enjoyed as separate episodes while giving die-hard fans a well thought out story arc involving the Wraith, Ancients and other interesting discoveries from the Pegasus Galaxy.

Overall Atlantis has not only met fan's expectations but has slowly exceeded its parent series, Stargate SG-1. If you're a fan of the Stargate Movie and haven't seen an episode of SG-1 I highly recommend buying the first nine seasons on DVD before jumping through the gate to Atlantis, however any fan of Sci-Fi would covet these Atlantis DVD sets.

Stargate Atlantis is one show you really hate to miss. With the arrival of Season 2 on DVD, well, now you can partake in the adventure whenever you want.

I have been waiting, too, for it to be available via DVD. For some reason, they were SLOW to get this series on DVD, even with the major success of Stargate SG1. It's still not in my local stores or Sam's Club. However, you can always rely on Amazon to have it.

The action and the stories are fun, unique and adventurous. The people who are annoying remain annoying. And the villains, VILLAINOUS. I love the characters...and tolerate the scientist that you would prefer to slap and tell to shut up! Ronan does that from time to time, as well as others.

Ronan was a successful new character introduction, and a good parallel to Teyla and Sheppard. I also like it that Weir gets stronger throughout the series.

As Stargate SG1 struggles to find it's footing with the principle cast taking a leave of absence, you can count on Atlantis to be the fantasy adventure story you can sink your teeth into.

Ok...the Ori story has resurged a breath of fresh air in SG1.

My advice...get them ALL. Atlantis has so many fresh twists, it is an original, not a clone of SG1. My wish is that they continue to thrive and continue to develop interesting and compelling story lines. I love it!

Live long and prosper, Atlantis.

Stargate Atlantis: Season Two is worth it! It has 5 discs so you know its a lot of episodes and the best part is for each episode there are commentaries with the actors, producers, and directors which give more insight into the series and also make you laugh... a lot. The special features are a BONUS; they contain hours of hilarious features with Martin Gero and the cast (the best are the segments with David Hewlett and Paul McGillion). If you like science fiction, and comedy.... and hours of it... go for this DVD.

Stargate Atlantis continues to map out new territory without completely losing its connection to the series that spawned it.

This seasons introduces some new characters to go along with the old ones. Most notable is Ronon Dexx who joins the team as the mostly silent, "beat the opposition into submission" type of personality. He plays a straight man and is good for some laughs.

The Goa'uld make their presence felt even in the Pegasus galaxy hosting Atlantis. This could provide some interesting story lines in the future but is just getting started this season.

While still darker in tone than the original, it is lighter than the first season. It is entertaining and fund to watch.

Episode synopses appear below:

The Siege Part III - As last season closed, the cliffhanger had Atlantis under siege by the Wraiths and things were not going well. Atlantis was ready to self destruct and Maj. Shephard was on the way to a suicide mission. As is customary in such situations, the cavalry arrives just in the nick of time in the form of the Earth Ship Daedelus. It has some advanced Asgard technology on board which saves Shepherd and helps to destroy the hive ships attacking Atlantis. Some manage to get away and they are heading back with reinforcements. While the cleanup is going on, a lieutenant is rescued but he has been severely damaged by the wraith. He is irrational and jumpy about the others who do not fully trust him. As the enlarged wraith fleet arrives, Atlantis decides to gamble on deceiving them that a self destruct has really taken place. This occurs just as the damaged lieutenant steals a puddle jumper and flees through the gate.

The Intruder - The Daedelus has made a trip back to Earth to let SGC know what's going on.
