Yes, it doesn't take itself too seriously (and that's some of its charm),
yes, it has its ups and downs,
yes, you may say it is more fiction science than science fiction,
and yes, I STILL LOVE to watch it, with all it's well done special effects, villains, story lines, and original ideas.
I won't elaborate on the content, as I believe potential buyers have already seen most of it.
I'll just try to complete the missing data that doesn't seem to appear neither on the Product Details on Amazon nor on the boxset or accompanied booklet and nor in the previous reviews I've read here.
I,personally, find it highly interesting, especially on heavy loaded movie magic productions, to have behind the scenes information given in the form of featurettes and commentaries.
This boxset has some good ones, but I've removed one star to differentiate it from later seasons where it got better and better, culminating in season 4,where all episodes have commentaries (with subtitles !!!).
In this boxset one or two episodes at most on each disc have commentaries, and they are generally very good and well presented. None of them are subtitled.
These are their details:
Episodes 1&2 Rising
Martin Wood (Director) & Joe Flanigan (Sheppard)
Episode 6 Childhood's End
Martin Gero (Writer), Rachel Luttrell (Teila) & Rainbow Sun Francks (Lt. Ford)
With some long silences and not so well prepared, this is the least memorable commentary, but still has it's good moments.
Episodes 10+11 (The Storm + The Eye 2-parter)

The quality of the visual effects are outstanding for a TV series (much, much better than SG-1) and the pilot in particular is superb. Other highlights are the mid-season two-parter The Storm/The Eye and the several other episodes that deal with the Genii. The Wraith are a much scarier nemesis than the Goauld could ever be and the whole series has a much more apocalyptic feel about it, a sense of jeopardy - which makes for much more involving TV.
Stand-out characters are Joe Flanigan (Major Sheppard) and David Hewlett(Dr Rodney McKay) although it's a bit unfair to single these two out as the cast is an ensemble and all give fine performances. On a personal level I 'like' the Atlantis characters far more than I 'liked' the SG-1 ones - which is a testament to both the quality of the acting and the writing as well.
Overall, an excellent series that can be watched by anyone who loves Sci-Fi as well as people who just enjoy an exciting story with cool baddies and some very, very funny one-liners. Slight warning here that some very young children may find the Wraith a bit much.

I'm a massive Startgate SG1 fan and watched all the seasons religiously. I was so very excited (and scared at the same time)when I found out that they would be doing a spin of set... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Tania
