Should I try out Atlantis?

    I've watched SG-1 about two times over and I was wondering if Atlantis was any good? I really think SG-1 worked well together as a team. Not sure about Atlantis, because I only watched a few episodes they were in with SG-1. Not sure how to feel about Rodney McKay. Some like him, others think he's kind of annoying. I don't know about the rest of the Atlantis team though. I didn't mind Weir when I first saw her in season 8 of SG-1.


    So, should I try out Atlantis or keep watching SG-1?

    You should definitely give Atlantis a try. they have some great episodes in there and sometimes I even thought it was better than SG-1. If you're up for something different also try Stargate Universe.

    Bought the pilot episode off iTunes to try out and it was pretty decent. Might give the first season a shot one of these days.

    For me the only problem i had with Atlantis was that they were able to get back to earth too soon, the show shined when they were out there alone fighting for survival.On the whole its a great show with a few episode that toped the best of SG1 i would gladly recommend it.

    Actually bought the entire series, and from the sounds of it, it's pretty good. I had my doubts about McKay, but he's not that bad. Pretty funny at times. Just finishing up the fourth season. I would rate it 9/10.

    Carter was the figurehead, so she isn't going to be counted on as much for her science knowledge. That's more McKay's job. So not dumbing down, just pushed aside. Plus I like Carter, but I never felt she was the leader type just like in season 8 SG1.

    Well the idea was to end SG-1 after season 8 and continue with just Atlantis. But SG1 was too popular to can and got 2 more seasons. I know fans like the 1st season, but for me the space battles in season 4-5 were epic for this show.
