Ok so on the Rodney discussion thread and the Shep discussion thread there often seems to be *shock horror* discussion about their interaction with each other.
Since this dynamic is my personal favourite on the show, I thought it warranted a thread unto itself .
I realise there is already a Shep/Mckay ship thread, but this thread is not intended to be ship (or slash), just a place to discuss their interactions and the evolution of their friendship.
Though, of course, that discussion can definitely include ship and slash.
Ok, so to get the ball rolling, I move a motion that Shep and Rodney are much more alike than either of them would ever likely admit.
I mean there is the whole mensa, smart maths thing, their geeky glee at all shiny new technology (so long as it goes really fast and has potentially cool weapons) and their stunning inability to admit their own shortcomings or *gasp* that they may in fact be wrong (note Shep in Hot Zone and McKay...well McKay in every episode).
So. What do YOU think?
