Dr. Rodney McKay: You gonna eat your power bar?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yes, Rodney. Told you, shouldn't have eaten yours so early in the day.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm starving! Usually Flora feeds us some sort of food when we visit. Come on, you hardly ever eat yours.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No, Rodney!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, will you give it to me later when you decide you're not gonna eat it?
Harmony: You allow him to question you so incessantly?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I guess I'm just used to it by now.
Harmony: Would it not be easier to beat him?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We don't beat people where we come from.
Harmony: Why not?

The worst of Stargate Atlantis and maybe Stargate in total
2 October 2015 | by antony-1See all my reviews

Just dreadful.

The opening moments are so predictable... two hot girls, McKay is interested in the third sister... will she be ugly or will she be young... ugly or young.

Oh young. SURPRISE!

And she's so annoying. The trouble is, the Stargate writers can only write so many types of personalities. So just like Laren is attempting to be Vahla, this young girl is like them both. They are written in the same style, despite this being a young girl she just is a puppet for that writing style.

Dreadfully uninteresting, unfunny... and no surprise this show - and indeed the Stargate franchise - was on its last legs at this point.
