I was so disappointed that they canceled this series, especially when it was getting so much better and leaving us hanging with a new turn of events!

avatar

Season 2 was much better and a valliant effort with plots and conspiracy... Maybe even a little too dark dor me. 8 points for season 2 and 4 points for season 1. Final Average rating show is 6

avatar

Seems the second season is scheduled for release Nov 15th. Whole family sits down for this one.

avatar

Oh c'mon, I want season 2 right now. X.X

This had to be one of the most corny shows on TV at the moment but I love it.

Can't wait for Atlantis' next episode... The show's amazing. Before I even started watching it I wasn't convinced. I didn't have any expectations- it turned out to be A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I know, the show's nothing to do with Hercules( late 90' Show), but if you think this is another Hercules TV Show, you'll be disappointed- in my case, HAPPY! A nice and entertaining Fantasy Comedy; the acting, great! ^__^

Mark Addy is the best! Good actor.
