Critic Reviews for Stargate Atlantis Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Stargate Atlantis unfortunately sticks closer to TV's sci-fi status quo. It's comic-book fun for those seeking action in primary colors.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Stargate Atlantis gets a new cosmology, another Samantha, and my gratitude.

Oct 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The joshing in Atlantis is not funny, and the ragtag locals... are inscrutable, though maybe they'll become more expressive.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The cast of the new show is not only attractive but also capable of delivering a funny line now and then.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Stargate: Atlantis looks like it will become the same kind of destination viewing that has made SG-1 a staple in the Sci-Fi Channel lineup for years to come.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The stories are disappointing and even shift into some predictable sci-fi clichés.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

This is the stuff of easily digestible, syndication-friendly sci-fi TV, and again, there's nothing at all wrong with that.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

While the characters occasionally seem a little too similar to their SG-1 counterparts... that's something that's easy enough to overlook, thanks to the better-than-expected performances.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

There's plenty of fodder for thoughtful storylines in this compelling, if somewhat derivative, sci-fi drama...

Audience Reviews for Stargate Atlantis: Season 1

  • Dec 21, 2019
    This is the weakest season of the show, but it went on to become my favorite sci-fi series ever made. Amazing show, but it doesn't get great until season 2 and beyond.
  • Dec 06, 2019
    Same great idea, new galaxy. They really make this unique though, very interesting.
  • Aug 29, 2019
    This is a very intriguing show based off of the movie "stargate". It follows after the movie quite nicely and continues to have a flowing story. Great quality and good characters.
  • Jun 04, 2018
    One of the best scifi shows of all time. Great first season
