  • What a load of rubbish! Based on an "Episode Concept" by Joe Flanigan - in other words Sheppard needs a backstory and we've got filler episodes to.. fill...

    Once again Atlantis trots out the age-old formula of start the season strong with a good multi-parter that moves the story along nicely in an interesting direction, and then fill out the rest of the season with rubbish - except for the mid and end of season cliffhangers - and then do it all over again next season...

    There has been absolutely no progression of any kind of story arc since "Spoils of War" and it looks like we're not in for any until - you guessed it - the end of the season.

    The only thing I liked about this episode was the (re)appearance of Bates - a character I've always liked and sorely missed since the first season because he was the only one who ever bothered to have a point of view that was different to those in charge.

    To be fair, the concept itself is not exactly a bad one but it's a really big leap from suddenly making good progress with the replicator tech you've been spoon-fed to fully autonomous walking talking human form replicators with a consciousness - and with a heart...

    If anybody had bothered explaining - or even having one the characters attempt to find out - where the tech was coming from I could swallow such a bitter pill a little more easily but then to top things off with the worst Star Trek weak cop-out plot device "I'll just download your consciousness into this here computer" - I mean come on!

    What a load of rubbish!
