Regardless of how you feel about shipping or the current/past ships in Stargateverse, what do you guys think about how the McKeller ship has unfolded?
Now, correct me if I'm wrong and I've missed certain key-parts in the McKeller storylines, but this is how I remember it:
* Rodney and Jennifer fall down a hole (with Sam)
* They kill time discussing what men they'd rather sleep with (with Rodney eventually joining in, hi hi, ho, ho, ha, ha)
* Rodney and Jennifer have a drink together
* A lot of nothing
* Rodney starts to lose his mind and randomly blurts out "I love you" in a video diary
(There was also the alternate future BS in "The Last Man", but in that one, Rodney specifically said that they got together because they bonded over grief, loss and other BS things and, hello, alternate future)
Now, I might not like the ship and I might have preferred to not see it at all, but if they're gonna make it overt and canon, they better show us the buildup!
As it stands, it's pretty friggin' random! I mean, yes, there was the alternate timeline thing, but, hey, Sam married that negotiator guy in that alternate timeline and then he died.
This romance had pretty much zero buildup. They had a drink, then John saw an alternate timeline that will not come to pass and wham, Rodney's so much in love he's ready to declare his love for Jennifer and wants to give us his spare time going off-world with her to visit sick people or whatever. Even with the alternate timeline, that's not enough to have Rodney go from a drink to "I love you".
Ummm... OK. So what do you guys think? I think I'd prefer to actually see more of this than have it randomly pop up. As it stands, IMO, this is a pretty random ship that progressed way, way, way too far off-screen.
