Damning With Faint Praise.

Earlier tonight I was watching Space: The Imagination Station whey they had a filler bit between movies for Stargate: Atlantis. The cast member they were talking to said the Wraith, the main baddies on Atlantis, were the alien equivalents of Marilyn Manson. My immediate thought was along the lines of that in effect he's telling us the Wraith's schtick is basically a ripoff of older, more nasty aliens in their galaxy, just as Manson lifted much of his stuff from Alice Cooper. Not quite the effect I think he was going for.
