Stargate Atlantis--"The Long Goodbye"
“Let that Be Your Last Battlefield” and Doctor who’s “Dalek.” I would look to either of them long before I would recommend “The Long Goodbye.” The plot is terribly thin here, and it does not get much traction at all, but “The Long Goodbye” has its entertaining points. It is exciting to watch weir do her Rambo thing, although I get the definite vibe Torri Higginson is not into the role. She does no feel like she is naturally cutting loose. I do not buy into her sense of menace. But the rest of the cast help save the episode. They work together like a cohesive unit. What is even cooler is they can do so without weir and Sheppard. “The Long Goodbye’ could have been much better if Phebus and Thalen had gotten more character moments, , but there is still some goo stuff here amid the shallow plotting. Rating; ** (out of 5)
