Although I am a major fan of SG-1, the first Stargate TV show, I honestly was not sure I would like Atlantis. As you can tell by looking at the rating I gave it, I love it and can honestly say that I would recommend to anyone, especially fans of SG-1.
Now, we get to the reason that I gave season 1 only 4 out of 5 possible stars. At this point, you now know that I am an insane fanatic who is obsessed with this show, but liking the show and liking its DVD releases are different things entirely. The content on this release is great and does not let down those who have bought previous Stargate box sets; however, I do have two major complaints.
- 1) The menus take several seconds to play through, and obviously, you can't skip over them.
- 2) There is ABSOLUTELY NO SCENE SELECTION for any of the episodes, NOT EVEN THE PILOT!
Okay, now I've sang the glories of the show and screamed at the flaws of its life on disc, so I'll wrap by saying the following (this speech will not be as long as you think). "Although there are no bloopers or deleted scenes and the scene seleciton is missing, this is still a great buy for any sci-fi/fantasy/adventure fan."
