From Amazon.co.uk

It’s no easy task to create a spin-off series from what became the longest continually-running science fiction show of all time. And when Stargate Atlantis spun out of Stargate SG-1, few could have expected it to have turned out quite as well as this.

Stargate Atlantis’s origins inevitably lie in SG-1, specifically the ongoing storyline in the original show to find Atlantis. And thus, from a story-telling perspective, some of the groundwork was already done. Still, it takes a little while for the show to find its stride, although it’s soon helped by the appearance of some familiar faces from the earlier show.

Yet from the midst of a base in Atlantis, the show soon warms to its task. It’s a dangerous place to be, courtesy of the fractions within the crew, and also the constant, and at times devastating, alien threat. Furthermore, there are plenty of fine ideas, and many examples of sharp writing, at the heart of Stargate Atlantis, and particularly as the show hits its later seasons, there are an increasingly number of terrific and very memorable moments.

The boxset delivers five seasons of the show, and eventually starts taking the whole Stargate franchise off in a different direction to usual. And that’s a good thing. For once it discovers its identity and place in the world, Stargate Atlantis is a quietly impressive science fiction series, with some genuinely engrossing episodes. Warmly recommended. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

The Stargate universe is exhilaratingly expanded and the epic feel of the franchise is perfected in this acclaimed spin-off of the Stargate SG-1 series, itself spun-off from the 1994 blockbuster from director Roland Emmerich. In Stargate Atlantis, an international crew of scientists and soldiers finds yet another Stargate... One which leads to the Lost City of Atlantis. This Stargate, though, isn't on Earth but in the far-away Pegasus Galaxy, and the secret city holds a formidable new enemy--the Wraith. This release includes the complete series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stargate Atlantis complete blu-ray set 19 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
After reading previous reviews of the box set of all five seasons of Stargate Atlantis I felt troubled. It was definitely a show I wanted on blu-ray but other reviews mentioned the problems with the sharpness of the image, especially in the early seasons.

There is good and bad news. As reported by others FX or composited scenes are softer than pure live action scenes but even season one, where you are watching a pure live action scene the image is quite sharp. Even some composited scenes where say the characters are in front of the cgi city or sitting in a puddle jumper cockpit looking out the viewport are sharper than expected. And as the show progresses through it's seasons the FX work does look sharper and clearer.

Atlantis hasn't looked better and I am now glad I bought the set.

On the downside all the extras I have looked at so far are in standard definition, not even upscaled and hence framed all around by black. They often seemed to have alignment issues and are cropped on their title bars at times.

I'd suggest you keep your dvd sets for the extras, they definitely look better than on the blu-ray!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the boxes, watch the series! 5 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
Stargate SG1 is an interesting and entertaining story-driven Sci-fi series, although the characters tend to be rather bland. Conversely the latest evolution of the program Stargate Universe is character-driven, but (currently) at the expense of any strong story-line.

Stargate Atlantis however manages to combine both an engaging story and genuinely likeable characters.

Indeed not since the original Star Trek (with Spock and Kirk) has a sci-fi series managed to balance so effectively all the key components of memorable escapist entertained. Enthralling stories, good scripts, challenging ideas, really nasty villains, lovable characters, and plenty of humour, along with a strong slice of action, all make up the perfect mix for that most rare phenomenon ... a TV series you can watch time and again and still love every moment. And this only happens when you become so fond of the characters you simply want them around.

In Atlantis the characters remorselessly send themselves up, frequently comparing each other to Star Trek or Star Wars figures (usually in a less than flattering way), and the program is littered with memorable one-liners. However the heart of the series has to be David Hewlett as Dr Rodney Mckay. Brilliant and resourceful but often obnoxious, cowardly, anti-social, and hopeless with the ladies, Mckay lifts the entire series out of the mundane and into something genuinely entertaining. That said he is ably supported by a troop of actors who are clearly having as much fun playing their characters as we are having watching them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another success 7 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
After following the series of Stargate SG-1 very closely when it was airing on TV, I got captivated by the elegance and power that was the race called "The Ancients". When i found that the new spinoff was called "Atlantis" I went ape.

The series focus' on the live of the ancients as they were in the Pegasus galaxy and why they disappeared. It is a trilling spinoff from a legend.

Pro's: Outstanding cliff hangers, end of your seat moments, good humour, and terrifing battles
All the above are the finer points throughout the series. Without them the series wouldnt have made it to 5 seasons.

Cons: There are a few episodes that are quite "Dry". You get slightly bored, but if you persevere you wont miss out on any action.

All in all i am extremely happy with my purchase and i watch it regularly (Im on my 4th time through :D). I never get bored of this series, and couples with its parent series SG-1, it becomes mind blowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gateway to another Galaxy 21 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are two things to rate when it comes to a boxset such as this.
The first being the content of the series, special features and whatnot; the latter being the aesthetic and quality of packaging.

For the majority of people purchasing this series, at this moment in time, it's most likely you have seen the series before and know what to expect. If that is the case, expect a whole lot more, the DVDs also contain MASSES of special features. If I'm not mistaken every episode has a commentary, or at least a great deal do. I believe Martin Gero, one of the Stargate writers comments in one that he hopes you've watched the series before then going into watching the commentary, as they often link up talk about character development, prop usage and all manner of things which may occur in later seasons - which is by no means a flaw, it just adds to the replay value of this box set.

If you haven't seen Stargate Atlantis before and have seen SG1, there are a lot of similarities to comfortably keep you at ease, and a whole GALAXY of differences to add to a whole new adventure. I'm not going to go into plot lines, but the series gets progressively better per season in my opinion.

The product itself, the aesthetic and quality is somewhat pleasing. On the plus side we have a beautiful box and a well presented means of storing the DVDs within the ideal holding of the cases.
