Product Description

Torri Higginson, Joe Flanigan, Rainbow Sun Francks, David Hewlett. The international team continues their exploration of Atlantis in this hot sci-fi series. Includes 20 episodes on 5 DVDs. 2007-08/color/15 hrs/NR/widescreen.

Replicators and Wraith. ZPMs and hyperdrives. Good guys, bad guys, and guys who could go either way. They’re all on hand for the fourth season (originally aired in 2007-08) of Stargate Atlantis, still one of television’s finest sci-fi shows. There are a number of new developments in the course of this 20-episode run. The first is the departure of leader Dr. Elizabeth Weir (Torri Higginson), who’s gone from the team by the third episode, replaced by Col. Samantha Carter (Amanda Tapping, who will be familiar to Stargate SG-1 fans after her long stint on that now-defunct series); seems Weir’s body contains “nanites,” the elements that make up the “sentient machines” known as the Replicators, which leads to her making a supreme sacrifice on behalf of her fellow humans. (Speaking of the Replicators, these bad boys are so formidable a threat to the entire known universe that even the Wraith--the cat-eyed, white-haired, weird-skinned, vampire-like Johnny Winter lookalikes who feed on humans--fear them, resulting in a rather fraught, on-again-off-again alliance with the Stargaters. Unfortunately, the Replicator-Wraith showdown, which could have made Godzilla v. Megalon look like a game of tag, isn’t exploited to nearly the degree one might have wished for.)

Meanwhile, the team’s personal lives are examined more closely this time, as Teyla (Rachel Luttrell) becomes pregnant, dreadlocked beefcake dude Ronon (Jason Momoa) considers rejoining his original tribe, irreverent hero Lt. Col. John Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) returns to Earth for his father’s funeral (where he runs into his ex-wife and estranged brother), and genius scientist Dr. Rodney McKay (David Hewlett, a good actor whose character’s incessant glass-half-empty, pessimistic whining is getting a bit old by now) once again meets up with his sister, who also made an appearance in Season Three. Overall, the fourth season contains several terrific stories (like “Adrift,” in which the entire city of Atlantis heads into space in search of a new home planet, “Tabula Rasa,” in which the crew is infected with amnesia, and “Trio,” described by its creators as the most logistically complex episode of the entire series), and a smattering that aren’t so hot. As always, Atlantis has terrific special effects, sets, and action (this show ain’t cheap to produce, and it shows), plenty of wit (Sheppard, upon being served a strange-looking meal by his captors: “Is that a form of torture?”), and a very generous selection of bonus features, which include commentaries for every episode, featurettes, and photo galleries. --Sam Graham

Although the actual DVD set isn't out as of the time I write this, the 4th season finished airing months ago and now since they have the page for pre-order up, I've been kinda itching to write a review.

Well as this season starts off from the 3rd season cliffhanger, it is definately off to an awesome start. Atlantis lost, adrift in space and running out of power. To conserve energy, they shrink the shield down to a small section of the city and then what happens?...Atlantis runs into an asteroid belt! Then to get more power, they actually raid the Asuran homeworld for ZPM's using Dr. Weir! A very entertaining beginning.

While the majority of episodes are hits, such as the episode where a disease causes everyone to lose their memories(Tabula Rasa) or the one where Teal'c comes for a visit(Midway); there are some that fall short of their potential for giving more or are just plain boring! For example: the end-season cliffhanger! This is the first time I've ever been disappointed with an Atlantis cliffhanger, not leaving me anxiously curious to see how they get out of that situation, waiting for the next season. It ends with Sheppard and his team searching a building for Teyla, but it self-destructs and collapses in on them. ( know they survive it) A better way to end the season would have been to leave Sheppard stranded 48,000 years in the future, revealing more about what happened in the galaxy in all that time and trying to figure out a way to get back home with the McKay hologram's original plan failing to work! Now that sounds like one hell of a cliffhanger!

I reviewed season 3 as well, saying it gives potential for an awesome season 4. Does it live up to that potential? It comes close, but unfortunately no it doesn't. Why?

I think that Stargate Atlantis Season 4 is well worth watching. I would agree with other reviewers that Carter should have been in more episodes (it was fun to see how she and McKay got along). I also agree that I continually expected to see something else on Weir and the Replicators, but it never happened. However, I think overall this season was great. I can't wait to own it on DVD this summer or for the next season. I hope it lasts as long as SG-1, or even longer!

I suppose everyone has different expectations, but I can't help but be puzzled by the many negative reviews of season 4. I'm a huge fan of SG-1, but from the beginning I liked Atlantis better (probably because the wraith are just so darn cool), and it is still improving. I thought season 4 was the best yet. If I have any complaints at all, it's that Sam's character was underutilized. She was a great addition to the show (much more pleasant to be around than Weir), but I would have liked to see more of her.

I think the strength of this season was the characters, especially (and as always) Rodney and Sheppard. It was good to see Rodney changing into a nicer person (even as a jerk he was always my favorite). It was also good to learn a little more about Sheppard and to see him in situations that brought out aspects of his character that we haven't seen before. Those two are stellar. Teyla's pregnancy added realism to the character that hadn't been there before, and I thought Ronon had a great season too, at least insofar as he did more than just glaring at people and occasionally flattening someone against a wall with a knife to their throat. The "minor" characters continue to be enjoyable, especially Zalenka, but I also like Major Lorne. I hope they continue. The death of a minor character early in the season was an unhappy surprise.

I thought the first and second episodes - the conclusion of last year's cliffhanger - were especially good.

Loved this series from the first episode. All of the characters were great. The stories were awesome. Tons of action, humor, character development, bad aliens, loved the city of Atlantis, and I sincerely wish their were more seasons! Don't miss it. The Stargate franchise should be very proud of their achievements in this wonderful series.

I am a big fan of SGA, but on Friday, January 9th, 2009, the series ends. :( I could go into a long review about SGA, but many others have already done a great job of that. The best recommendation I can give is that it's the only show I've purchased every season of.

I still cannot believe that a show of this quality is being canceled way before it's time. The finale had more that 2 million viewers and that doesn't included DVRs or international audiences or downloaded copies on amazon or those like me that only watch it on DVD. Those ratings were high, especially for a Friday night show on Sci-fi!

I liked SG-1 but I like SGA more. And so do every one of my friends.

There is a campaign to save SGA (that way there will be more seasons to enjoy and buy!) After all, who would want a 2 hour movie when you could have 20 more episodes! But for that to happen, fans need to write in to save Atlantis. There is a lot of discussion/info on sci-fi about the campaign to save SGA. Please check it out.

Dr Wier?
Yes, the nanites replaced all of her damaged cells with new nanite cells.

Her new hair is essentially replicator hair.

Stargate Atlantis is Cancelled!!! (But There May Be Hope!?)
I am bummed out. I like SG: Atlantis better than SG-1! It is a great show, and deserved at least 7 seasons, a la Star Trek modern series. What a load of crap.

This really does prove my theory, that the SciFi Channel ruins or cancels every good series that they have. A couple examples: Sliders,... Read More
