Stargate Atlantis: Fans' Choice [Blu-ray] by Various Directors
Review by Charles Mohapel
MGM (Video & DVD) Blu-ray  ISBN/ITEM#: B0029WLJHU
Date: 24 August 2009 List Price $29.98 Amazon US / Amazon UK / IMDB.com - Rising / IMDB.com - Enemy at the Gate / Show Article /

While I did not vote for my two personal favorite episodes of Stargate Atlantis, I was curious to see which ones were chosen by the majority of the fans.

The consensus was that the fans who did vote chose Rising, the feature length pilot episode, and Enemy at the Gate, the 100th and final episode.

Not only do I enjoy this symmetry, but I also think these were two of the best episodes.

From official release/information:

Description: You voted - we listened. For the first time ever on Blu-ray, here are extended versions of your two favorite episodes from the celebrated Stargate Atlantis series - without commercial interruption, and in packaging you designed!

The exhilarating, feature-length pilot episode, Rising, sends a brilliant team of scientists through a Stargate to the legendary city of Atlantis. But not only is the city about to be engulfed by ocean water, an enemy appears who threatens everyone in the Pegasus Galaxy! And in the white-knuckle, lengthened Enemy at the Gate from Season 5, as the team tries to disempower Wraith hive ships, the Wraith discover coordinates that will allow them to destroy Earth!
