Another Fine Science Fiction Series Set In A City
27 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

Atlantis is found.

Richard Dean Anderson makes a very welcome and comical appearance in this opening episode, but he soon goes, and thankfully, the show survives very well without him.

As someone else mentioned, The Lost City is indeed a character in the show, just as the space station was a character in Deep Space Nine (1993) and just as the moonbase was a character in Space 1999 (1975) before that.

I can't help comparing Dr McKay to one of the doctors in the M*A*S*H TV series (1972-83)...very intelligent but funny and with a few issues. But M*A*S*H was a long time ago so McKay is most welcome now.

And finally, these days many people feel the need to binge watch a show like Stargate Atlantis, well that is not the way to go as the series is repetitive in premise and settings, and binge watching actually works against the entertainment value of the series.

I fine show, but just watch one episode a week as was originally intended.
