Hey Netflix Canada, Where’s Stargate Atlantis?

On June 21, 2012, in Movies, by ComputerAbuser

Many moons ago I mentioned that I was interested in watching some recent TV show additions to Netflix Canada.  In particular Farscape and Stargate SG-1.  Both shows that I missed the first time that they aired.

Well, shortly after that post I started watching Farscape.  It was great, loved it.

Then I started watching Stargate SG-1.  Another great show, loved it.

In the case of Farscape, it was cancelled in the final season without notice, so it ends on a cliffhanger.  Luckily, a 2 part mini-series was released to wrap everything up.  Unfortunately, it’s not available for streaming on Netflix, so I had to download it illegally.  🙁

In the case of Stargate SG-1, the series finale is not really a series finale and is instead a lead up to two direct-to-DVD movies that were released in 2008.  It’s available on Netflix, but not in Canada.  BOOOOOOOO

Fortunately, I have also been testing out the DNS redirecting service from UnoTelly, so I was able to circumvent the system and watch them anyway.  (On a side note, I should have a review of the service up in a few weeks).

Which brings me to the title of this post.  Hey Netflix Canada, where the hell is Stargate Atlantis?  I can see that it’s on Netflix US.  Why carry Stargate SG-1 and not Atlantis?  Or Stargate Universe for that matter?  Pretty shitty move getting us hooked on Stargate by giving us SG-1, but then cutting us off!!!
