I was wandering around on Amazon Prime when I came across one of my favorite shows, Stargate Atlantis. Granted, it is the second television show based off of the popular movie, Stargate. Richard Dean Anderson played the rough and rascally Colonel O’Neill in Stargate SG-1. When I first started watching SG-1, I was blown away by how well the tv show followed the script of the movie. Atlantis, doesn’t follow any script from the movie, instead, it blazes its own path with a new cast and new adventures.
In typical Stargate fashion, it revolves around a team of intrepid explorers out to seek the lost city of Atlantis. Everything in this show is “go big or go home.” It starts off slow, but as time progresses the personality of the cast shows through and makes it hard to resist once you start to watch. If science fiction is a passion of yours, and you haven’t checked it out, you owe it to yourself to check this show out.
