Stargate Atlantis is the McDonald's of science fiction TV shows: even though it's somewhat bland and unremarkable, you keep on eating there . . .

Just like Stargate SG1 - the series from which it spun off ? gave work to actors from the defunct Farscape series in its later years, the Atlantis cast is now joined by two actors from other defunct SF television shows; namely Amanda Tapping (ironically) from SG:1 and Jewel Staite from Firefly.

Both seems a bit underutilized though and seem to blend into the background. Tapping could hold her own on SG:1 and even though everyone goes on about Summer Glau, we secretly knew who the sexiest woman on Joss Whedon's sadly prematurely cancelled show really was. Alas, they are both given very little to do here.

Stargate Atlantis - The Complete Fourth Season wraps up the previous season's cliff-hanger and in a rather loose way continues with existing plot lines involving the threat posed by so-called Replicators and the Wraith aliens. If you are new to the show then it is best that you kick off with Season One. If you're a Stargate Atlantis fan then you probably would have already ordered this set.

WORTH IT? Even though it's still a case of Star Trek-lite, Stargate Atlantis remains watchable because of the lazy charisma of its stars and the way in which its principal cast interacts. It is formulaic, but watchable nonetheless.
