    the 'who's your stargate boyfriend' contest... i really need to stop answering honestly, because i keep missing the mark. i WANTED jack o'neill and got beckett. i don't even know beckett!

    here's my ranking...

    Carson Beckett - 100%
    Daniel Jackson - 67%
    Rodney McKay - 67%
    John Sheppard - 67%
    Cam Mitchell - 58%
    Jack O'Neill - 50% --> should be first dangit!
    Aiden Ford - 50%
    Ronon Dex - 33%
    Teal'c - 25%

    since i don't know the atlantis characters, is beckett even a good boyfriend to have?

        uh, what does that mean? that she took a pen and paper and drew a picture, or that she had some beer???

          I was just watching TDYK and I thought this pic reminds me so much of Queen's Bohemian Rapsody


          I wonder if that's where they got the idea of "Getting the band back together"
          Only in this case they decided to replace Freddy with Ashley Simpson

            I read previous answers to this question and I can understand the dilemma. Being retired Air Force, I can relate better to Carter as a female proving herself in a pre-dominantly male military. I'm not as smart as Carter but I bet we could find common ground by swapping some interesting stories of mil life. Now Amanda, I'm getting the privilege of meeting her in November and I just hope I don't pass out from the experience.

            It doesn't.

            Nope, I think my butt is firmly grounded in reality.

                no hard time separating the two.

                i'd rather meet amanda. i'd love to have a chat with her over lunch or something. but, i'd love to meet sam too. i'd like to shake some sense into her about her jack o'neill probs (like 'grab that guy already!')

                about the bleeding over of affection thinger... i think i've done that a time or two, but not so much anymore. i haven't been happy with a lot of things stargate this season, and i think 'that's' bleeding over into things...

                  Yes, very much so. I think he was second or third on my list.
                  He's cute and, ya know, ACCENTS ARE HOT! <--- one of the questions; dead giveaway.

                    you know, if i had an ultimate fantasy, it'd be to spend an afternoon or something and really get to know her. yes, it's nice to see her on stage or in the photo line but...that's just superficial. it'd be nice to get to know the real person.

                    i would love to be a fly on the wall and...oh hang on the set for a week. not doing anything per se, just being there. seeing it, experiencing it. i'm a geek, i'd find it very interesting.

                      I agree with your assessment. Rodney's one of the few people that doesn't take Sam at face value. She was so used to being the one who came up with the answer and for the most part being right, that when someone challenged her on that, she was totally out of her element. It was like her whole perspective was in question. I liked that Rodney brings that out in her and makes her actually work for the answer, not just pull it out of her head.
                      i can't speak for the mckay of today (or atlantis), but the mckay i saw in his sg1 eps was a jerk. i found him to be *totally* jealous of sam, and being the jerk he is/was?, he took it out on her.

                      i didn't feel he challenged her, i felt he got into her face and made fun of her. jerk.

                      but like i said, i don't know how the writers have toned him down on atlantis.

                          but you know, i do think that his interactions iwth sam have a lot to do with his changes. by ineracting with sam and watching her solve problems, i think she helped pull his little mind out of the lab and into the real world.
                          through her he got to see a different side of things

                            He is a jerk. But he's a jerk with DEPTH. And when David Hewlett plays him, I feel like Rodney's gonna be OK in the long-run, like somehow I can deal with his arrogance, as long as I see him develop more. I truly believe that anyone else would have made his character not ring true somehow. I can't explain it, but DH has done a good job with such an obnoxious character.

                            And, in my mind, he redeemed himself in Redemption, when he kinda explained why he behaved the way he did, and how he felt about Sam's approach to science. There's gotta be a reason why he is the way he is, and I hope they explain it some time down the road... He's a good character! Honest!
