Storyline

McKay is testing a puddle jumper that Zelenka repaired. Together with pilot Griffin he heads to the mainland of Atlantis when suddenly it malfunctions and crashes into the ocean. They awake an hour later to see them sink further and further into the ocean at an alarming rate. They are already 1200 feet beneath the surface and every minute the jumper goes down 20 feet. It's only a matter of time before the pressure will get too high. McKay tells Zelenka to hurry up, but he is not able to pinpoint his exact location. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Ugh. More McKay?
24 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frankly, I find Dr. Rodney McKay to be one of the most annoying characters in the entire Stargate franchise. This episode is all about developing his persona.

There are some great episodes in Stargate Atlantis. Unfortunately, this is not one of them and unless you're a big fan of the McKay character, you can skip this episode.

I came away disappointed, both with the storyline and my own dumb stubbornness to watch until the end.

Don't get me wrong here: David Hewlett is a gifted actor and plays his roll expertly. It's just that the character is an absolute pain.
