Review: Stargate Atlantis, Episode 5.20, "Enemy at the Gate"

After five seasons and one hundred episodes, the Stargate Atlantis story comes to an end, at least in the format of a weekly television show (one direct-to-DVD film is planned, with more possible if it sells well).

If it had to end, this is the way it needed to end, on an epic scale. Showrunners Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie write a fitting final chapter of Stargate Atlantis. It's a roller-coaster ride from start to finish, putting fans through a wringer of emotions while keeping them on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens next. There are "oh, no!" moments, followed by "oh, yes!" moments. Two former cast members return for the finale, and there's a nice tribute to the Stargate SG-1 character that was played by the late Don S. Davis.

Thank you for five entertaining seasons, Stargate Atlantis. I'll miss you.

The third show in the long-running Stargate franchise, Stargate Universe, will debut this summer. May it be as good as Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.
