Editor's NoteThe 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 isn't on Earth but in the far-away Pegasus Galaxy, and the secret city holds a formidable new enemy known as the Wraith. With this fifth and final season of the hit sci-fi series, the order of things takes one final turn as IOA representative Robert Woolsey replaces Samantha Carter as the commander of Atlantis, and the mission?s original leader, the allegedly self-sacrificed and cloned Elizabeth Weir, returns as an ascended being. Meanwhile, the crew moves to take down the human-wraith hybrid Michael and free the captive Teyla while a rogue faction of the benevolent Asgard race shares its experiments in the prolonging of human life--as well as an item that could forever change the Stargate universe as fans know it. This set includes all 20 episodes of STARGATE: ATLANTIS?s final season and serves as the lead-in to the exciting feature-length STARGATE: EXTINCTION.

The Sci-Fi Channel, which originally aired the series, has always been known for cutting shows too soon, but after watching the final season, they may have done it just at the right time....read the full review|
