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. … Expand

Stargate Atlantis is one of my favorite tv-shows of all time. It's full of unique action and of course excellent sci-fi. The show got its ups and downs, especially when there are slow and non-action episodes, but this fifth season might be one of the best. Sure it got its flaws with forced dialogs and lack of action here and there, but I still love it. The season finale is great and I really loved it, but it could have been longer, like a two episode finale like in the first season (The Siege 1-3). Sure this season is great, but the whole show miss that special aspect, the epicness of the first season when we saw dussins of ships attacking Atlantis. My only wish is that they could have continued on that scary and epic path. But this is still one of the greatest sci-fi shows of all time. Unique and epic action with touching music and great characters that really make us love the show. Exciting story and big fearful villains! If you haven't watched Stargate Atlantis before; go and see it right now!
My overall rating for each episode is 8.35; which is why in giving this fifth season a 9/10. It really deserves a 9!
