Back for more action Atlantis doesnt waste anytime with the story continuing from where it left off with the Sierge (Part 3). The Wraith are attacking Atlantis and Sheppard is on a suicide mission to stop them...or is he? Following the attack Atlantis goes on missions once again where Ford, who we last saw being attacked by Wraith leaves Atlantis and becomes an addict...youll have to watch to find out what to! The season truly is better than the first one and continues with great action sequences throughout and excellent special effects which include the new battleship called the Daedalus. A new character joins in the form of Ronan Dex, who has been on the run from the Wraith ever since they destroyed his planet. Prime episodes include the Siege Part 3, The Intruder, Runner, Aurora, The Hive, The Tower finishing with Allies. 2 Special Guests this season include SG-1's Amanda Tapping as Sam Carter, and Enterprise's Conner Trineer (Trip) as Michael, a Wraith turned Human!

Your sure to love the second season of Atlantis, I give it 5*'s!

Last time we saw John Shappard, Elizabeth Weir, Teyla, Aiden Ford, and Rodney McKay, the lost city of the Ancients was under a severe attack from the Wraith armada, with very little hope in the promise of reinforcements being their only chance for survival. As an attempt to stave off the Hive ships, John goes for a suicide mission, armed with a nuke...but fortunately the cliffhanger is resolved in an action-packed 3rd parter, and sets up the basis for a whole new season that sets the groundwork for things to come.

The characters and the mythology behind the Pegasus galaxy are developed even further, especially in regards to the Wraith (Which makes things a little less black and white than it is in season 1). Some things even take a darker tone as the team committs actions which may be seen as foolish and immoral, and taking this fine line makes the situations far more dynamic and interesting.

The episodes range from great to outstanding to okay on most occassions, save 'The Tower' which is an ep you should watch only one, due to terrible writing the story falls flat in that one sadly, but is made up for incredibly quickly.

As for extras, the discs are chocked full of the damn stuff! No need to worry there. On the whole, buy, watch and enjoy another great sci-fi season.

`Stargate: Atlantis' season one not only established this show as a unique rival to its fellow series `Stargate: SG-1', but also set the bar very high for a second season with this new breed of adventurers continuing to battle Wraith and other foe in the far-removed Pegasus Galaxy. Consequently for me this season did not quite live up to that impressive debut.

Just as with its sister series, `Atlantis' is adept at balancing a large season story-arc while at the same time providing its audience with inventive one-off stories that act both to attract new viewers to the show and also give the loyal fan-base a break from the on-going threat of the Wraith. This second season is no exception. However, with many of the episodes it seemed to me that the plots were simply too similar in style and set-up to many from the first season. Episodes like 11- `The Hive' (6/10) and 14- `Grace Under Pressure' (7/10) felt like carbon-copies of episodes 2- `Rising, Part 2' and 4- `Thirty-Eight Minutes' from the first season- obviously mixing up ideas and going in slightly different directions, but still- simply too reminiscent of those season one stories. This season works slightly differently compared to the first in that many episodes (even those that aren't strongly Wraith-based) tend to bleed into one another, even though they're not described as `to be continued', which means that many episodes here end quite abruptly and in an unsatisfying way for the viewer. Episode 7- `Instinct' (6/10) (guest-starring the unrecognisable Jewel Staite of `Firefly'/'Serenity' fame) was one that left me particularly at a loss and wondering `is that it?' only to begin episode 8- `Conversion' to discover that the closure awarded the character was particularly brutal and baffling.

Stargate Atlantis is a fantastic spin-off of the much loved Stargate SG-1. Where SG-1 had to deal with the Go'auld Atlantis have their own terrifying and seemingly unstoppable force in the Wraith. While the Go'auld were evil they were teddy-bears compared to the Wraith - personally I'd rather have a contingent of Go'auld over for dinner than even one Wraith!

In Season 2 Weir, Sheppard, Teyla, McKay and Beckett continue on their quest to discover all they can about the ancient Atlantians while dealing with neighbours with agendas of their own. All the while they must keep the threat of the Wraith at the forefront and it leads to some great battles of wit and weaponry.

As a series the makers of Stargate Atlantis have managed to find a formula that makes Atlantis unique from SG-1 which will attract newbies but with a similar formula which will attract devout SG-1 fans. Atlantis is a darker sci-fi series but with some great one-liners which make it highly amusing also. Rodney manages to crack me up every episode without fail. The casting, stories and cinematography are excellent and I expect Atlantis to be around for several more seasons yet.
