Anyhow, my opinion remains the same. (I voted for Jennifer Keller). I don't find her interesting, she's a nuisance, and she takes up space. Unlike McKay (another character that got on my nerves in the later seasons), she's not particularly interesting or well-written.
However, I no longer believe that simply removing Keller would have fixed many of the show's problems, it would simply be removing a distraction. Fixing the show's problems would require a whole lot more.
no one, liked all of them.

McKay. That might make the show passably watchable again.

Keller: I liked her first but after the ep "Missing", her character just got worse and in season 5 it got entirely annoying.
Michael: He should have gone a long time ago or just once make his appearance after season 3 ep 2.
Ronon: Worst actor in the show. All he has in his repertoire is that dumb smile of his. He is a ticking time bomb with his attitude.
Beckett: Should have never killed him off in season 3 but even worse and so unrealistic is his resurrection as a clone. Come on, cloning his whole memories, just wonder how Michael did that on this planet with no such equipment.
I'm remain surprised that Larrin has received so many votes because she was only in 2 episodes. I suppose that when this poll first came out voters were afraid that we would see more of her in future episodes and that made the character seem more prominent than she actually was in SGA.
As for Keller, even after all this time, that character is still awful. In fact, I think time has made her even worse because now that SGA is over, there's no longer any possibility of the character becoming less irritating. IMO, she was somewhat tolerable for much of Season 4, but by Season 5 she had become an overexposed, badly written Mary-Sue that diminished almost every scene she appeared in.
For me, Keller was/is the physical manifestation of everything I detested about the writing for Season 5.

If your boss doesn't give you work, all you do is be bored all day through.
And why do you think Rodney did develop? Do you want to see the numbers I have on him? You'd be surprised how much Atlantis became the Rodney-show.
And btw - I chose Rodney for the simple fact that it would force TPTW to write for their other characters. Didn't have anything to do with DH's acting skills cause I know he can act (I've seen it in Without A Trace, Forever Knight, A Dog's Breakfast). Besides it's the character, not the actor or actress.
I think Keller should go. But go in a good way! Like having Rodney's baby haha. Then she could go raise him and everybody else can focus on saving the world(s)
Huh, just noticed Ronon did develop in TLM. I works together with a wraith and in the end genuinly smiles at him. Unfortunately that was the only episode plus it happened in an alternative future, so, no development of Ronon.
