Stargate Atlantis--"Hot Zone"
”Home” and personally in “The Eye.” but our heroes do not always act heroically, do they? The personal conflict between Sheppard and Weir as well as some good character moments from Rodney save “Hot zone” from my usual aversion to contagion needing immediate cures or else stories. I am all for the nuke solution, too, even though it is grossly simplistic. There is also the foreshadowing of another villain out there bent on exterminating humans. The series can always use a widening rogue’s gallery. I do not think "Hot Zone” is all that great, but it is a notch above general filler. Rating: *** (out of 5)
