Seems okay.

A classic work combining classic works.

I bought this because it's considered one of the great works of literature and has survived into common culture. Though I can see why this would have been popular at the time, especially thanks to the forward saying that the brief writing style was rare, I don't yet see why this would appeal to today's person. Perhaps it's just me, but so far I find the writing style rather insulting.


  1. 1887 - A Study in Scarlet
  2. 1890 - The Sign of the Four
  3. 1892 - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
  4. 1893 - The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
  5. 1902 - The Hound of the Baskervilles
  6. 1904 - The Return of Sherlock Holmes
  7. 1908 - The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
  8. 1908 - The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans

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.
