Product Description

For the first time ever, fans can catch up on season 3 before season 4 begins on Sci Fi!

Amazon.com

With Stargate SG-1 now permanently off the data screen (except for a TV movie or two) after ten productive seasons, it appears that the fate of the universe is now the responsibility of the Stargate Atlantis crew. Based on the latter's third season, whose 20 episodes (plus a wealth of bonus features) are made available here on five discs, we're in good hands.
Three years into it, Atlantis has retained numerous familiar elements while continuing to evolve steadily. The core cast is intact, with the cocky wiseacre-hero Lt. Col. John Sheppard (Joe Flanigan) and the egotistical, neurotic genius Dr. Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) still the most entertaining of the bunch; as the series explores the characters' personal lives and backstories, we even meet (in "McKay and Mrs. Miller") the latter's sister, who's every bit the wiz that he is. On the other hand, the roles of team leader Dr. Elizabeth Weir (Torri Higginson) and members Teyla (Rachel Luttrell) and Ronon Dex (Jason Momoa) are neither especially well-written nor well-played. The return of Richard Dean Anderson (and his sense of humor) as General Jack O'Neill, the SG-1 mainstay during most of its run, for a few cameos is most welcome, as is the presence of the Wraith, the series' principal villains (SG-1 fans will also recognize the "sentient machines" known as the Replicators from that series). With their flowing white locks, cat-like eyes, pale, almost translucent skin, ultra-fine black leather dusters, and, in one case, shades that would make a Hollywood hipster envious, the Wraith remain the coolest bad guys on the sci-fi scene. We already knew that they feed on humans, but this season brings some startling new revelations, particularly in "Common Ground," an excellent episode that finds Sheppard and a Wraith (Christopher Heyerdahl) forming an unlikely alliance against a mutual enemy; we also witness the return of the Wraith known as Michael (Connor Trinneer), who was the subject of the Atlantis team's ongoing "retro-virus" experiment (designed to make Wraiths human) in Season Two and plays a significant recurring role in Season Three. Other developments are apparent as well, but most dramatic of all is the death of one of the team's key members.
Stargate Atlantis isn't the most original TV show ever created; in fact, elements of The Running Man, Alien, The Abyss, Enemy Mine, and other sci-fi works are sometimes so obvious that the characters themselves mention them in dialogue. But as always, the action sequences, special effects, models, and other technical elements are first-rate, as are the bonus features, which include episode commentaries, featurettes, and photo galleries. --Sam Graham

For my money, the third season of Stargate Atlantis is the best thus far. All of the seasons have been somewhat hit-and-miss, in terms of episode quality, but I think season three brings a wealth of much-needed character development. We learn more about the mysterious Sheppard in "Phantoms" and the taciturn Ronon Dex in "Sateda," while the episodes "McKay and Mrs. Miller" and "The Tao of Rodney" provide new dimensions to the brilliant and blustery Rodney McKay. McKay's character arc alone -- looking from his original guest appearances years ago on SG-1 to the newest Atlantis offerings -- is staggering, and David Hewlett greatly deserves the praise he's received for his performance. Outside of something like Firefly, I think it's rare to see a show in this genre explore so much of the characters' backstories, and it's gratifying to see it finally happening for SGA.

Teyla is certainly underutilized, and I hope that this season will bring new depths to her character. From what I've heard, there is definitely the opportunity for that to happen.

PRO: TOP NOTCH SCIENCE FICTION. PERIOD. Season 3 is even more of the great Season 1 & 2 for Stargate Atlantis.. ONLY the show continues to improve. Great cast and good writers, continue to make this show interesting and fun as any SciFi action show on TV. STARGATE is ONE of the top THREE ORIGINAL IDEAS for a movie (actually TV shows spawned a couple of their own in addition to the original movie with Kurt Russel), a movie which spawned even better television shows,, SG-1 and Atlantis.. and the shorter lived Universe. (CAST and writers make the difference) AM WATCHING THE ENTIRE ATLANTIS SHOW FOR SECOND TIME.

CON;; this show goes ten seasons.. What the deal with TEN. Just because shows like Friends stop at ten.. doesn't mean this one had to stop.

I just finished watching the third season DVD set, and while Stargate Atlantis is still my favorite Sci-Fi show, I was rather disapointed.

Here's why.

(Warning! Spoilers below!)

First, story arc failure. I was expecting a huge advancement in the story arc concerning the Wraith, but it just didn't happen. Sure, they appear in a few good episodes, but it didn't seem like the story with respect to them in particular moved at all.

Second, killing off Dr. Beckett. I really liked him. Maybe I'm dating myself a bit here, but he was kind of like Scotty and McCoy rolled together but with a cooler head. This very lovable character will be missed.

Third, rehashing the replicators. With an entirely new galaxy as our backdrop for this series, why do the replicator thing all over again? It was original enough on Stargate SG-1, but I was amazed that Atlantis started a story arc with replicators too. Are they going creatively bankrupt already?

Fourth, rehashing old sci-fi standbys, like the "weird alien thingy or disease that causes loyal comrades to start killing each other". Did the original Star Trek do this in the episode "The Naked Time" and wasn't it done again by Star Trek Next Generation as the second or third episode in that series?

Fifth, bringing back a whole ship full of "ancients" just to kill them all off by the end of the two part episode. So, the "ancients" have gone from being a great and mysterious race of humanoids from the past to an expediant plot device. We can create them and destroy them at will just to get and episode or two. Couldn't an "ancient" or two have been spared and used as secondary characters? Wouldn't that have been interesting? They could have helped explore the rest of the city.

You're a fan or you're not. I just watched all five seasons of SG-Atlantis because I haven't seen it in so long. There are a few predictable episodes that float off SG-1 and an occasional episode that just doesn't hold you. For the most part, every episode has you on the edge of your seat. I do strongly suggest that you become familiar with the basic concepts of the SG-1 series before watching Atlantis because you may get lost without the backstory on some of the characters and technology. SG-1 and Atlantis are among my favorite TV SciFi from the original Battlestar Galatica to Eureka to Dr. Who. I recommend for ages 14+. There is a lot of violence, but no overt sex and the language is clean for the most part.

Did you grow up on Star Trek? were you able to suspend some of your beliefs just to enjoy the concept of intergalactic travel? Then this series may be for you. I doubt anyone would expect perfection from lower budget TV series, this one delights. Star gate Atlantis series is in my opinion way more fun, well executed and "believable", (in an old Star Trek Lover kind of way), than some of the other Stargate series I have seen.. Better scripts, sets, action and much less "cheese" or "campyness" than the other Star gate series. I find myself chuckling over several of the interchanges between the characters in many of the episodes.
I heartily recommend.

A very worthy successor to Stargate SG1. This manages to summon a lot of the ensemble magic that made SG1 such a great series, But with a whole new cast of characters. My only criticism is that like many series everything sort of resets to zero at the end of each story arc, so discoveries that have far-reaching consequences made in one episode are often ignored and not used in subsequent episodes.
