Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Fifth Season by Various Directors
Review by Charles Mohapel
Date: 25 July 2009 List Price $49.98 Amazon US / Amazon UK / Show Article /

Once I learned that the SciFi Channel had decided to kill off "Stargate Atlantis" after only 5 seasons and precisely 100 episodes instead of the 7 seasons that are the industry standard for syndication, I watched each episode with heightened anticipation. Given the subsequent name change to Syfy, it appears as if their new management is trying to change the channel's focus, a somewhat questionable decision given that many of the biggest recent box office hits on the Silver Screen are genre movies like Iron Man, WALL-E, The Dark Knight, and the Harry Potter franchise.

From official release/information:

In this action-packed fifth season sparks fly when Woolsey becomes the new leader of the Atlantis team. Meanwhile, McKay faces difficult personal challenges; Teyla must balance her roles as mother and warrior; Ronan's past returns with a vengeance, and Keller finds peril, then help, from an unlikely source. A provisional relationship with the Wraith takes a shocking turn and new adversaries test the team's courage and resolve like never before.

DVD Release Date: June 30, 2009
Run Time: 873 minutes
