Earth Stargate SG1 vs. Stargate Atlantis

I wondered if a decade difference would have changed my mind about Stargate SG1 vs. Stargate Atlantis like it did by changing my opinion of Star Trek Enterprise (I now think Enterprise was a great show.)

Unfortunately for SGA I'm feeling exactly the same. SG1 was still the far superior show. The "Wraith" are ridiculous over-the-top villains. It's almost silly. I know it's sci fi and all but at least Gao'uld (or however it's spelt) linked up with ancient cultures on Earth- there was something believable about them. The Replicators too felt like an enemy that may well exist one day. The Wraith on the other hand are more out of fantasy that sci fi. Closer to Vampires than Klingons.

I'll keep watching it, but the SG series was clearly taking steps down, not up, with each new spinoff.

After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true...

I enjoyed all of them, but I think SGU was probably my favorite.

Yes, Stargate Universe. I'd also probably put Star Trek Voyager at the top of the Star Trek shows. Not sure if it's because they are different enough not to feel like more of the same or if it's the alone and struggling to survive aspect, but I liked those spin-offs better than the others.

After bsg went off the air, I watched B5 on netflix over the course of a year.

not even close. B5 was about 20% substance, 75% fluff, 5% cheesey cutaways

BSG only had a handful of filler episodes, but even they werent bad, just didn't contribute to the arcs
