  • Summary: The Lost City of Atlantis Has Been Found! A secret group of scientists have discovered the location of the famous lost city of Atlantis, but it's not on Earth. It's located in another galaxy altogether, the Pegasus galaxy. Stargate Atlantis, a spin-off from the highly successful StargateThe Lost City of Atlantis Has Been Found! A secret group of scientists have discovered the location of the famous lost city of Atlantis, but it's not on Earth. It's located in another galaxy altogether, the Pegasus galaxy. Stargate Atlantis, a spin-off from the highly successful Stargate SG-1 series, follows a multinational scientific and military group, lead by Diplomat Dr. Elizabeth Weir (played by actress Torri Higginson), headed on a one way trip to Atlantis. Their mission: to investigate the secrets of Atlantis, a city now known to have been built by ancient powerful beings, and bring whatever they discover back to Earth. They will be all on their own, with no means to return, with no means of rescue or support, unless they can find the technology they need in Atlantis to return them to Earth. Once in Atlantis, the group finds the city abandoned; asleep for tens of thousands of years, and no power source left for a return home. They must find a power source within Atlantis' own Pegasus galaxy using the same Stargate system that got them there or they will be stranded forever. On the first planet they visit, they accidentally waken a new, powerful, and more evil enemy than human kind has ever faced, the Wraith. And the Wraith are hungry – for humans!
    Follow the extraordinary adventures of an SGA team lead by Major John Sheppard (played by actor Joe Flanigan), and his team made up by his second in command Lt. Aiden Ford (played by actor Rainbow Sun Francks), and the Astrophysicist/Scientist Dr. Rodney McKay (played by actor David Hewlett, reprising the role he played in Stargate SG-1). Joining the team will be Teyla Emmagan (played by actress Rachel Luttrell), a beautiful, exotic, and strong-willed woman from the Pegasus galaxy.

    It feels like the show got a power-up in this fourth season, because the third is a bit slower when it comes to innovation and action.

    This fourth is greater and it best aspect is that there are much more awesome, action-packed episodes. The best are "Adrift", "Lifeline", "Be All My Sins Remember'd", "Midway" and "The Last Man". Many episodes are therefor very well written, but "Harmony" might be the worst episode in the show to date; so boring. The story continues after Atlantis got a new home, and it feels good. The flaws that defines the show is as mentioned in my previous reviews; the dialogs, and that hasn't changed. The cast is still great even though i has its flaws (Teyla), but the newcomer Carter made the season better than what I expected. Dr Keller though; she's such a bad actor. I wish they would have killed off Teyla and Keller, a bit dramatic but that's what this show needs; less bad actors (and better dialogs). Still; Teyla is a good character and I enjoyed the season finale, when Teyla finally was rescued from the evil Michael. I totally like him as a villain, but my only wish is that the threat of the Wraith would have been greater. I remember the old days, when the wraith attacked Atlantis, the day when we saw massive motherships attacking the city and everything was horrifying. I miss that epicness! I want more of that, not minor threats like Michael. This is my fourth time watching this tv-show, and it's still one of my favorites, but I wish there would have been more threats, like in SG-1. Yes we have the wraith and the replicators, but we've already seen the replicators before and the show really needs a new, refreshing villain. If the threat of the wraith is not going to get bigger, then please introduce a new villain. It's a bit lame sometimes.

    But it's still a great show, and this fourth installment isn't an exception. My overall rating for each episode is 7.88, so an 8 as a rating fits the season very well.
