Continuing Stargate Atlantis: DVD Movie or TV Mini-Series?

Since the fifth and final season of “Stargate: Atlantis” in 2008, there has been the debate over continuing the story lines in some fashion. It mainly centers on having a TV mini-series for closure to the series, or having DVD movies.

To me, a TV mini-series would feel too much like finality (which, I guess, is the point of closure). Once the mini-series is over and off the air, there’s no room left for more stories. On the other hand, a movie always leaves things open for a future. There’s a chance there could be sequels (case in point: the SG-1 movies, “Stargate: The Ark of Truth” followed by “Stargate: Continuum” followed, seemingly, by “Stargate: Revolution”).

I know some will say that with movies you only get one story at a time. This is true. At the same time, that’s really what a mini-series is, just in an expanded nature. With movies you can have “bigger” and more focused stories. Not to mention, the story flows better.

Aside from the story issue, the biggest thing is, like I said above, the finality of a TV mini-series. So I guess it comes down to this: Do you really want “Stargate: Atlantis” to end or continue?

Keep in mind, this is just my opinion...what’s yours?

Note: For those that may not know, there is already a “Stargate: Atlantis” movie planned. It is tentatively titled “Stargate: Extinction.” But it, like the SG-1 movie, “Revolution,” has been put on hold by TPTB...supposedly because of the current status of the economy...and the fact that “Stargate: Universe” bombed and is being canceled.
