The whole fake out thing that episodes like A Human reaction/WGFA have is definately something I don't enjoy
WGFA doesn't qualify as a fake-out story. It doesn't even try to pretend he's really on Earth for more than about 30 seconds.
Precisely, as the title indicates, Crichton doesn't get faked out again. That's the whole point. The episode takes the original gimmick and throws it out the window--with extreme prejudice!

Plus, again, the execution and tone of a story is what matters,not the bare bones of the plot. The story of King Arthur has been done as a Disney cartoon, a Broadway musical, a Monty Python spoof, and an R-rated epic full of blood and sex, but I don't think you can assume they're all just the same old thing.
