Seems okay.

Agents with a formerly-secret worldwide law-enforcement organization work to safeguard the world from the lesser challenges now too-frequent for superheroes alone.

Good enough, although so far it's one of these episodic shows which has a new problem every episode.

  • S.H.I.E.L.D. - Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division

TODO - There are other media related to this universe, and I'm not sure what order to watch them in.

A pair of secret agents do secret agenty-stuff.

Unfrozen after 300 years, the captain of the most powerful ship in existence moves to rebuild his fallen Commonwealth with the help of a rag-tag group of civilians.

This series is high quality with a light mood. Although I can say I love this series, it definitely takes a nosedive in the final "wrap-up" season.

Having discovered an interplanetary teleporter, humans bumble around by sending teams through to other worlds.

Seems pretty good so far. It's definitely got the "TV series" feel to it, which explains how many seasons there are.

  • This series follows from Stargate (1994)

    • Watching that movie is not mandatory to watch this series.
    • This series has different actors.
  • The stylized "A" in the title (with the middle bar missing and the circle over it) is a reference to that symbol representing the Earth when programming a stargate.

Though an author tags along with the police because a particular detective is particularly hot, it turns out he's actually helpful.

I adore this series, even though it gets repetitive later on.

If I get to re-watching things, I'll add notes.

Upon contact with aliens, humans set up a space station to promote ambassadorial relations among species.

Easily among the best television I've seen. Everything about this series is phenomenal: acting, stories, sets, etc. Unfortunately, the graphics do appear dated in places, but it otherwise holds up very well.

Mandatory viewing.
