Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

And in the 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.

Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

There's only one real hurdle to completely enjoying MGM's otherwise solid 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation of Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series, so we might as well get it out of the way up front. In reality, though, it isn't a hurdle at all. It isn't even what I'd call an issue. Like other modestly budgeted science fiction series, old and not-so-old, SGA features a number of effects shots that weren't created with high definition scrutiny in mind. It's a problem that affects every season and rears its head time and time again. You'll notice a soft shots of Atlantis and other alien cityscapes, a few less-than-crisp dogfights and carrier battles, a handful of hazy CG-born alien entities and other visual effects that were produced at a lower resolution, and therefore serve as brief but disappointing distractions. However, the only way to eliminate these eyesores would be to go back to the drawing board, re-render the problematic FX shots that appear, and insert them into the HD masters of the corresponding episodes. (And yes, unlike pre-Season Six SG-1, every episode of Stargate Atlantis was blessed with an HD master.) Considering how limited a problem the affected shots amount to, and considering that SGA was canceled two years ago, the likelihood of that happening is... well, not very likely at all. Again, though, I wouldn't even call it an issue as MGM's 1080p encode represents the series' source as well as it does, wrinkles and all.

With that out of the way, on to the goods. Make no mistake, Stargate Atlantis has never looked better. That doesn't mean the presentation is quote-unquote top tier, or even outstanding, but it is noteworthy. The brilliant blue eruption of an activated gate, the rich reds, oranges and purples of Atlantis, the natural earthy tones of the various worlds Sheppard and his team explore, the ominous interiors of a Wraith hive ship, the swimming colors of a nebula... it all looks great. Fantastic even, on occasion. Primaries aren't overwhelming, but pack punch; contrast is intentionally hot at times, intentionally subdued at others, but remains attractive and pleasing regardless; skintones are warm and lifelike, and rarely appear oversaturated or flushed; shadows fall convincingly and darkness hangs heavy, all with a reasonably filmic disposition; and delineation, though imperfect, is generally as revealing and secretive as it should be, showcasing ancient discoveries one minute and cloaking terrible dangers the next.

Detail is, more often than not, striking as well. In fact, barring the usual crop of soft shots and unavoidable mishaps that inevitably creep into any ongoing series -- especially one with a hundred episodes -- as well as those tied to problematic FX sequences, there isn't too much to complain about. Closeups are strong (especially in the first two seasons, before the series grows darker and grittier), fine textures are fairly refined and well-resolved on the whole, overall depth and dimensionality is impressive, and object definition, both foreground and background, is clean and sharp (without any egregious or prevailing ringing to point to). Note the tiniest flecks of blood on Sheppard's battle gear, the slightest hint of stubble on McKay's face when he's been trapped in a room for days, the tight patterns on Dr. Weir's uniform, the unruly hairs wound into Ronon's dreadlocks, the smallest nicks in Teyla's hand-crafted possessions, the scuffed hull of a puddle jumper, the tangled brush on an uncolonized planet, the organic horrors on a Wraith ship; the series' original photography has been preserved and rendered with care.

There are a slew of variances from episode to episode and season to season, but not enough to label the experience uneven or inconsistent. The first two seasons aren't quite as gritty as later seasons (call it the BSG effect), but the subtle visual evolution that occurs along the way is most certainly related to tonal changes and production values, not a difference in the technical quality of the encode itself. Likewise, some episodes look completely different than others -- some are moody and starkly lit, others are bright and buoyant, still others are dark and savory, and a number of others exhibit a distinct noisiness one might associate with separate sci-fi shows (particularly in the course of Seasons Three and Four) -- but, again, such discrepancies trace back to deliberate choices made by the showrunners, not some deficiency in the presentation. Significant macroblocking, banding, crush, aliasing and other anomalies are held at bay (for the most part), although a few oddities sneak through here and there. (For instance, Season Two's "The Siege, Part 3" exhibits a bit of isolated shimmering early on, weirdly along McKay's nose.) Crush is a minor factor, even if it's an issue inherent to specific episodes. Artifacting also appears at times -- keep an eye on Dr. Weir's red shirt in "Vengeance" -- but is mainly contained to CG-heavy shots. Noise inches up and down too, sometimes seemingly at random. While it's hardly detrimental to the presentation, the up-ticks in noise (see eps like "Michael," "Submersion" and "Trio" for reference) will no doubt catch the eyes of many viewers.

Scouring every minute of the Complete Series will no doubt unearth other trivial blips and aberrations, but nothing I've seen in the last few days has really raised any red flags. And believe me, I've spent a lot of time with Stargate Atlantis this week. As a fan, I remain pleased with how good the series looks, episode to episode, season to season, beginning to end. As a reviewer, I'm impressed by the level of faithfulness and care MGM has afforded the show, and the proficiency of the 100-episode encode. And as a videophile, I'm mildly relieved that I don't have many grievances to air. No, SGA's video presentation isn't perfect. However, it certainly outclasses its DVD and HD broadcast counterparts, pays respect to the hard work of the series showrunners, and leaves little room for serious improvement. Stargate Atlantis has never looked better and makes the box set's pricepoint seem a bit more generous. All things considered, it's safe to say diehards, casual fans and newcomers alike -- at least those armed with appropriate expectations -- will be satisfied with the results.

Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series hurtles through the universe courtesy of an energetic DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. And, though not quite as aggressive or engrossing as the lossless mix that graces Battlestar Galactica, SGA fans will find it complements MGM's video presentation. Dialogue -- be it shouted, whispered, sniveled, barked, cooed or flavored with the series' patented sense of humor -- is clear, intelligible and intuitively prioritized throughout. A few lines are thin by comparison (some are even buried a bit in the ensuing intergalactic chaos), but it hardly detracts from the experience. (Still, considering the spread of episodes, it's a wonder that there aren't more issues of that sort.) Sound effects are bright, engaging and altogether convincing as well, and the whole of the soundscape is bolstered by solid directionality and commendable dynamics. The rear speakers are active and assertive, even when action and intrigue is in short supply. Hardly a single conversation or silence goes by that isn't nestled amongst humming Atlantian technology, pulsing engines, busy city passageways, crowded mess halls, planetary winds, the rustle of a dense forest, the watery rippling of a Stargate portal or the sheer madness of battle. Ambience is persistent and appreciated, acoustics are fairly believable (as TV-based sci-fi acoustics go) and directional effects make good use of the soundfield. None of it is blisteringly mind-blowing -- or ear-shattering, for that matter -- but it all works well within the confines of SGA's established sonic parameters.

LFE output isn't sternum-cracking either, but that doesn't mean SGA pound the floor and put its all behind every explosion, implosion, eruption, energy blast and rocket booster that lights up the screen. Low-end power is formidable, heavier elements are nice and weighty, and gunfire, cave-ins and wormholes make their presence known. The series' score sounds great too, despite the fact that it isn't always properly featured in the mix. While these incongruities are presumably a product of the show's original sound design, the results aren't ideal. Even so, the track rarely falls short, and not an episode goes by that doesn't revel in the dust-ups, dogfights, shootouts, ground assaults and battlecruiser barrages the Pegasus Galaxy has to offer. Stargate Atlantis sounds as good as it looks, perhaps better, and MGM's DTS-HD Master Audio track adds even more value to the Complete Series box set.
