The big hit shows at the moment are not cheap. They're high quality and designed for binge watching.
House of Cards
Game of Thrones
Star Trek Discovery
...the list goes on and on.
SGO is trying to do similar, but (presumably) on a tiny budget, because it looks cheap. It's bad compared to the old TV shows, it's worse compared to the newer hits.
I like that it's a test, but if you're going to test, you need to go in a little more seriously. Just my 2 cents.
