  • Actually, the only reason I'm reviewing the fifth season is because an opportunity came up to get the DVD set at no cost and since my favorite Stargate actor, Michael Shanks, is in a couple of episodes, I took advantage

      The fifth and final season of Stargate Atlantis begins with an episode called Search and Rescue. Now this concludes a story that was done as a cliffhanger in season 4, and I didn’t see that. Actually, the only reason I’m reviewing the fifth season is because an opportunity came up to get the DVD set at no cost and since my favorite Stargate actor, Michael Shanks, is in a couple of episodes, I took advantage. I’m just admitting off the top that I’m not a fan of this show as a whole, and while I know some of the history, I’m not an expert. Thus, these reviews are going to be from an average

      viewer who doesn’t know the delicate ins and outs of much of the personal stories, etc.

      Here are my thoughts on this first episode of the last year.

      –Amanda Tapping guest stars as Colonel Samantha Carter. Apparently, Air Force regulations don’t apply in the Pegasus Galaxy. She’s abused the hair regulations at least twice on Stargate SG-1, and here she just blows it completely out of the water, with long hair, still not brushed, and in a silly looking ponytail. It’s very hard to take her seriously as the leader of Atlantis. That’s probably why she didn’t last as commander. She was replaced by Woolsey of all people. It’s just as well. She ...


      • takes off after this to do the events that occurred in the DVD movie, Stargate: Continuum.

        –The first scene, which confused me due to my lack of knowledge, was intriguing. I always thought if there were going to be a romance on this show, it should be between Sheppard and the alien, Teyla. There’s a small hint of that in this first scene, only it’s a dream, or is it a nightmare? The latter might be the case since all of a sudden Rainbow Sun Francks shows up, and he never made it beyond the first season as a regular. I actually liked seeing him, though. Part of this scene is repeated at the

        end of the show, which I admit was a little cool.

        –Teyla gives birth to her baby, and of all people, it’s Rodney McKay (David Hewlett) who delivers the baby. Somehow I’m not surprised. The McKay character is dying to be a Daniel Jackson, and since Daniel delivered a baby on Stargate SG-1, Rodney was bound to do it sooner or later.

        –Mostly, I’m bored, but I did sort of perk up when Colonel Sheppard tells Carter that he respects her more than any other person he’s served under. Considering how close he was to Elizabeth Weir, I thought that was definitely an intriguing remark.

        Lovers of this series probably adore this episode, but it does nothing for me.
