the best stargate series IMO

It's a tight match between Atlantis and SG-1, but I have no doubt about one thing: **I love this show so much!** Just incredible!!!

avatar

I Grew up on Stargate with its witty humour and epic action. It is the best sci-fi franchise in all of my tv viewings. I only wish they completed the Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe franchise'. Definitely one to watch from begining to end!

avatar

It's that kind of show you still want to watch, after months of finishing it. Almost as good as sg1, despite the horrible ending. Though you know, sg1 ending wasn't really great either

Gran serie

pity it ended

@dunpealhunter They made the ending that way because there was supposed to be a direct to dvd movie made that would have further went through the story. I believe they were going to have to get Atlantis back to the pegasus galaxy or something like that. Unfortunately, MGM pulled all funding to the SG franchises, and here we are. Definitely miss this, SG-1 and Universe. Although I love re-watching SG-1 and Atlantis the best.

Spin-off series with a lot of potential. but the series is filled with disappointing episodes that feel like rehashes of other shows and series and some of the fillers (especially in it's first year) stink. Too many episodes also rely on either a crew member getting kidnapped, getting a strange virus or being trapped with a big problem to solve (or all Three situations combined). The main villains were memorable as they could suck the life energy out of humanoids but their looks was terrible as they looked like old tired Goth rockers who had been travelling a little too long on the tour bus. It also didn't help that they became more and more humanized after the series went on. My biggest problem with the series though was David Hewlett who were terribly annoying throughout and Joe Flanagan who felt like a poor-man's Richard Dean Anderson or Kurt Russell. The season-enders and beginnings were usually the most interesting episodes to see as they were filled with action and great effects. The series were also not afraid of killing off favorite (and not so favorite) characters permanently. The series usually got some great new additions to the cast too for each season, with Jason Momoa, (the lovely) Jewel Staite and the addition of "Stargate SG-1" regulars was lovely. Sadly, the final episode was anti-climatic and the fate of the show has never truly been resolved. Enjoy it for what it is.

That Canadian 'Scottish' guy's accent is truly abysmal but it's obviously his USP as uses it in every show . . .

Very tight match between SG1 and Atlantis atleast for myself.. If you haven't seen this one yet i highly recommend you to check it out!

avatar

SGA is amazing but i will always like SG1 more than this because of the AsGards and Daniel Jackson

avatar

They *really* screwed the pooch on this one when they dropped the team leader/main character Elizabeth Weir at the end of S03--when the problem, if there was one, was with the scripts. They tried to replace her with Samantha Carter in S04, and Robert Picardo's character (which they had to retcon/rehab) in S05. Neither one came close to being an improvement. Jason Momoa is fun to watch, playing the Teal'c spot on the away team.

Average season rating: 7.6 ---- I can't help but think that _Atlantis_ would have been better off if its continuation film(s) hadn't been canceled. That was a major advantage in _SG-1_'s favor, beyond having double the episode count. In some ways, though, it might have been the better decision not to continue. _Atlantis_ never quite managed to capture the same feeling of adventure that _SG-1_ had in its heyday. It's telling that my favorite characters (except for Ronon) weren't even part of "the team" that went out on missions every week. There was actually a _ton_ of potential for character dynamics that went undeveloped because we almost never got the kind of "home front" episodes that really showed who SG-1's members were outside of their jobs. _Atlantis_ also never developed the individual characters to the same degree as _SG-1_ had in the same amount of time—which, admittedly, is a reasonable prerequisite for developing dynamics between characters. Flat characters can't riff off each other _nearly_ as well—and _Atlantis_ is chock full of flat character archetypes: - Tough-guy soldier — two of them, really - Arrogant genius - Magical/mystical foreigner - Doctor cinnamon roll They don't seem like real people, except for (maybe) Rodney. It's really hard to relate to them most of the time, which was not an issue I had with SG-1. (Anyone I've not listed above is because they were even _more_ forgettable than these.) In short, I can understand why the show's ratings declined enough that it got canceled. Still worth the ride, but probably not a rewatch.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
