Sorry to burst your bubble, but Atlantis seasons 4 and 5 were by far the show’s worst. Cast changes, a new darker direction, pointless storylines, the Wraith being reduced to the level of pantomime villains. Let’s not even think about the “that would NEVER happen” romance between McKay and the blonde doctor (because why have funny, honest, heroic Ronan when you can have “nice guy” McKay, the whiny, nasty, sarcastic coward?). McKay became almost unbearable and the storylines just got stupid. All the good things about seasons 1 to 3 were ejected.

I thought the later seasons were better than the first few. I liked all the seasons but I thought the first 2 were the least entertaining.

It was the same thing with SG-1. SG-1 got better with each season up until season 8. Season 9 and 10 went down hill mainly because Jack left and Vala sucked.

Let’s just say it’s your opinion. Don’t act as it would be the consensus of the fandom.

I really disagree Stargate Atlantis was evolving in a really nice way. I think it was at its peak during season 5 and I was so excited for a season 6.

Contrary, I strongly believe that the last seasons 4 & 5 was the best of sGA !

On the contrary seasons 4 and 5 introduced an immense wealth of material, the number of interesting storylines that were opened up were some of the most exciting for Stargate overall. In particular to take our biggest and most powerful ally the Asguard and having an evil version of them was so darned exciting and scary – seasons worth of storyline there alone. Those Borg type creates, the replicators, the Travellers, the Genni treaty, the working relationship with the Wraith Todd, not to mention we still had a whole CITY to explore… it really made the Wraith themselves quite irrelevant… Read more »

I really wish they would just publish the whole screenplay online, even if it was only behind the paywall on Stargate Command

Why do you want to deny fans from 189 countries the chance of reading these pages? You do realize that paywall is only open to 6 countries, right?

Some fan you are, denying the entire community access. You fit right in with the MGM/Command lot.

I don’t like the reason for Atlantis having to return. Self destruct because it’s out of Pegasus is a lazy reason. Give us something better….
Like an imminent Wraith or Pegasus Asgard attack threat, and a need to return with force to wipe out the threat, and free all the humans in Pegasus stuck in this cycle of being fed upon / destroyed

In the novels that were commissioned O’Neill claimed Atlantis for the united states in a bid to make the IOA freak out and force them to send it back to Pegasus rather than deal with the political repercussions of it ending up under the control of any one nation.

Like all other Studios MGM have a duty of care when they AXE a show without an conclusion is to provide fans with a story conclusion and ending in a form of a tv series or movie.

Yes, they have a duty, but in countless series that I’ve invested in in the passed decade or so, they haven’t finished them, they haven’t given “reveals” so you understand what had happened, or they give a “lazy” reason. So, you and I may think they have a duty, but they don’t. Sadly!

I think they should just novelize the script, like Sally Malcolm wrote the novelization of Rising, so everyone has a chance to buy the novel (digital or paperback, or audio if you’re into that sort of thing), and read it at their own leisure.

My question is even more basic: why is he “revealing” these pages?

There’s the comics too following the script or continuing things on at least.
