The shooting set of the Stargate Atlantis base, specifically the balconies where the humans from Earth celebrated their first victory as well as several times depicting the outdoor dining area is the exact same location as the Colson Industries' main office building from the Stargate SG-1: Covenant (2004) episode.

I am incredibly surprised at the quality of this series. At this point I have watched episodes 1 through 5, and am stunned at how much I am actually interested in watching this series.
The show appears to be well-thought out, the sets are remarkably authentic feeling despite what I am sure for a new series is a small budget, and the interplay between characters is consistent and easily acceptable.
The show is also very fast-paced and despite the short time (5 eps.), there are already a great number of believable plot threads.
Most importantly, the characters are believable and likable and for a sci-fi series, real. As mentioned earlier, the interplay between the characters is something to see. Indeed, when watching the series I actually forget I'm watching sci-fi.
Watch it if you can, I suspect you'll like it.
