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.

Slightly better price but be aware that play no longer (in my personal experience) use cardboard boxes for large box sets, they just send it a plastic bag, so your nice expensive box set will have lots of dents.

Its worth £2.60 more for a perfect set, as Amazon allways take great care when packing the larger sets.

Just some advice from someone who buys lots of big sets, as I have never had an undamaged one from play yet. Others may have had a better experience.
I did stick with them for "The Shield" box set at £30, coz the price was just mental, so I didn't mind a couple of dents for that price lol.

o yeah and thanks for the post, I am buying now :-)
