this is not one of the better episodes i think and its fairly obvious it is a shared opinion.
watching this i found myself remembering a similar storyline from SG1- the episode "prototype" from the ninth season; where anubis was trying to create a genetic hybrid to his ascended self based on his own DNA. obviously as a filler episode they drew from this storyline and altered it to fit with the wraith Michaels bigger plan for the pegasus galaxy.
in the future i hope for better storylines and as a fan of both atlantis and SG1 i know they can produce.
I also cannot wait for the appearance of Daniel Jackson in the mid-season 2-parter as i think he is one of the best characters from SG1 and i think he can help to improve & expand on possible storylines in SG Atlantis in the future.
