The new plan of the McKay-Carter Subway Station is under way. The Atlantis Team needs to harvest space gates in order to form the Galactic Bridge. Sheppard disagrees with McKay's plan to steal the gates and they go in for first contact with the "back water hamlets" as McKay calls it. As they walk into the city, they are greeted by a man called Lucius, who has the locals eating out of his hand. Everyone is hanging on this man's every word and so is Carson. He's completely smitten with him and Lucius now knows the location and the thriving existence of Atlantis. It appears, as Lucius explains, that he has an herb that makes him appealing to everyone. He later on exploits this until the locals experience withdrawal symptoms from the herb and they grow sick. Everyone in Atlantis is smitten and do what ever he wishes. Sheppard has totally had it and kidnaps Carson and forces him to make an antidote, while he is still in withdrawal. Written by Mark Ernst

4 August 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Oooo-kay. I understand that after all the philosophical issues of the previous episodes, the show went for a lighter plot here. On paper it's even rather interesting: the threat this time does not use violence but charm, and as a result it is both much more insidious and painful to eradicate. The guy in question is not even a villain as such. He's egotistic, greedy, careless and not very bright (except when it comes to advancing his own interests) but he probably does not wish anybody's deaths.

Still, some scenes were so over-the-top that I actually cringed several times in embarrassment for the characters I usually like (particularly Beckett: Paul McGillion really overdoes it, and Terri Higginson comes second). The last part gets better when the conflict finally appears and people start trying to DO something besides sit there looking enthralled. There are some funny moments but they can't hide the fact that for us viewers the charm just doesn't work.
