What where your Top 3 favorite Stargate: Atlantis episodes?
Isn’t that like asking a parent which of their children they like the best?
Runner, Sateda, Vegas. There! I said it! But 99.8% of the episodes were great. (Maybe 99.7)
As someone how likes to make visual assets as a hobby, this gives me great insight into how the show was designed visually. Could be an interesting career path change in my future maybe! Now that I think about it, one of the things which stood out to me when watching Dark Matter is how unique and well designed it was. So many sci-fi shows today look similar. I don’t suppose as showrunner you had any influence on design? Or do you just leave designers to do their thing?
I know that Brad and Robert gave Production Designer James Robbins a lot of direction and input in the design of Atlantis and the various ships like the Daedalus and Destiny. I had a lot of similar input into the design of the Raza on Dark Matter.
Tough, but i will go with :-
1. The Shrine – great idea, terrific script and a wonderful performance from David Hewlett
2. Duet – Rodney, Rodney, Rodddddneyy….
3. The Return – O’Neill, Woolsey who could ask for more 🙂
I loved Stargate Atlantis and to choose only three episodes is really hard but these episodes stand out for me
‘Michael’ – it was slightly unnerving to see our team reacting not quite right with this ‘rescued’ lieutenant.
‘Common Ground’ – introducing my favourite Wraith, Todd, yay!
‘The Shrine’ – was a very poignant episode, touchingly played by David Hewlett in particular.
Thanks for sharing the Atlantis graphics. I always enjoy seeing these stunning production creations.
