Stargate: Atlantis Season 5 Volume 2 DVD review
Carl England


Unfortunately, the extras are focused on the latter half of the disc, Whispers and The Queen getting the only commentaries on the DVD, and Whispers getting the main effects featurette. There’s a wee look at one scene in 'ep6' where there is a Stargate submerged under water, and an interview with Joe Flanigan looking back on the five years of Atlantis. It comes up a little short compared to earlier discs, but the interview is an interesting turn, and offers a considerable amount of depth that many discs lack by droning on about effects for three hours.

Overall, it's a hit and miss disc, with The Shrine streaking forward as the best of the bunch, and with the extras lacking just that little bit of punch. You won't miss out by not buying it, but it'll make your otherwise great season five set look darn silly. Now, where did I put disc three?

I'm not sure a single DVD volume counts as a "set" :)
