Stargate Atlantis Redux

So from time to time Mrs. Multiverse and I venture back into the Pegasus galaxy with the international team of Stargate Atlantis. This was one of our favorite shows on the Sci-Fi channel, now SyFy. I hesitate in saying that it is our favorite Stargate of the three shows that bear that name, but it is. We didn’t watch the third series that much; I think we were a bit bitter over the decision to cancel Atlantis but now we’re far more open to watching Stargate Universe.

The chemistry, and camaraderie are the two biggest draws to the series for us. Those along with the perfect amount of humor make for a fun time. The characters are well fleshed out, and very likable. I dig Teyla’s leadership and combat skills. The antagonists, the Wraith, were a frightening foe that were basically alien vampires that lived in a hive-type society.

Season two brought us the great character addition of Ronan, played by Jason Momoa. Nuff said.
