  • The series missed a golden opportunity here in the surprising appearance of Dr. Beckett out of nowhere.

    Instead of coming up with an interesting and provocative explaination for the appearance of Dr. Beckett, the writers decide to refry some extremely old beans in making him turn out to be one of Michael's experiments, a clone, oh and magically endowed with all of the original Dr. Beckett's memories too.
    It is science fiction happening in a distant galaxy, where our heroes base of operations is the legendary city of Atlantis built by an interstellar space faring civilization while we were still chasing wildebeasts with spears. Anything could have led to our having a second Dr. Beckett, in fact it would have been highly preferable if the other one that died were the clone Michael had bubbled up in a test tube. Oh well, maybe next time the writers get a golden opportunity to throw a curve they will practice the pitch first.
