Stargate Atlantis is one show you really hate to miss. With the arrival of Season 2 on DVD, well, now you can partake in the adventure whenever you want.
I have been waiting, too, for it to be available via DVD. For some reason, they were SLOW to get this series on DVD, even with the major success of Stargate SG1. It's still not in my local stores or Sam's Club. However, you can always rely on Amazon to have it.
The action and the stories are fun, unique and adventurous. The people who are annoying remain annoying. And the villains, VILLAINOUS. I love the characters...and tolerate the scientist that you would prefer to slap and tell to shut up! Ronan does that from time to time, as well as others.
Ronan was a successful new character introduction, and a good parallel to Teyla and Sheppard. I also like it that Weir gets stronger throughout the series.
As Stargate SG1 struggles to find it's footing with the principle cast taking a leave of absence, you can count on Atlantis to be the fantasy adventure story you can sink your teeth into.
Ok...the Ori story has resurged a breath of fresh air in SG1.
My advice...get them ALL. Atlantis has so many fresh twists, it is an original, not a clone of SG1. My wish is that they continue to thrive and continue to develop interesting and compelling story lines. I love it!
Live long and prosper, Atlantis.
