Ranking The 4 Stargate Live Action Series

Here is my ranking of the 4 Stargate Live action series, which includes the webseries Stargate Origins.

  1. Stargate Atlantis
  2. Stargate SG-1
  3. Stargate Universe
  4. Stargate Origins

While SG-1 is awesome and most people’s introduction to the franchise (despite it coming 3 years after the original movie) and is most people’s favourite, mine is Atlantis. That has to do with the fact that I feel that the Wraith are so much more awesome as a villain as I found the Go’auld very boring. Also when they focussed on the Jaffa I found it boring as well. The Wraith always appealed to me and they look awesome and dangerous. The action, the humour, the chemistry between the cast

Now if you were to include the original 1994 movie, I guess that list would be like this

  1. Stargate Atlantis
  2. Stargate SG-1
  3. Stargate
  4. Stargate Universe
  5. Stargate Origins

Origins is really bad. Badly acted, very low budget, badly written and there was no need to do the show in the end. It doesn’t make sense other than they were testing the waters to get interest in a new series for the franchise going. Yes, us fans love more Stargate but no, Origins wasn’t what we wanted.
