Its just a pain to watch a plain simple, uninspired and inappropriate plot like is.
The acting in this episode is awful. Especially John attracts the viewers attention as he does not really fit in the role and reacts completely strange. The court is small and uncreative. The judges are stereotypes do comes over serious. In combination with a completely ridiculous accusal makes this the worst episode.
More and more episodes are completely exchangeable and do not participate in the main storyline. What happened to the great storyline that once made this series worth watching it? Stargate Atlantis seems to have lost central theme like Stargate SG1 did. Is it so hard to write a story that has the potential to fill more than 5 successive episodes (or even more than 2 seasons) and makes the viewer feel horrible pain if he has to wait 7 days for the sequel?
