I also hope for the movie to even some odds, but I am afraid, that TPTB are too confident that their way was the right one.
The cake is a lie!

My problem is with the the "I love you" at the end of "The Shrine."
Rodney is supposed to LOVE her and yet not once did he call out for her.
All he did was call for John not Keller!
He wants his best friend, but not the woman he loves...sure!
That bugs me the most , you are scared and confused you want the person you love and there she was standing right next to him and he called for John.
Then she liked him when he was altered because of the parasite, it makes you wonder who she really likes.
Then she wants to change him to be something he isn't.
Watching his "I love you" over and over at the was just a creepy for me. He was not himself but she really believed it.
Then there was the "triangle of doom" the sad fact is that they all ready knew who Keller was going to end up with like she was a toy at the carnival.
It ruined the relationship between Rodney and Ronon all because of the TPTB thought it was funny to watch two grown men destroy their friendship over a girl.
With the lack of chemistry between Jewell and David it was a joke to watch them it made me dislike the last of the season because of the pairing.
I have never made it a secret that I dislike Keller! I think her dating her patient is wrong I don't care that it is a closed community it is still wrong! IMO..of course!
I used to Love Atlantis but this pairing has made it difficult for me to enjoy the 5th season. I don't even know if I will buy the 5th season when it comes out!
IF and when there is a movie and if there is mention of the pairing I will not buy it!
IMO.. the pairing is just not believable!
Why did you do such a thing, you mediocre dunces?
And the truth is that any kind of team-ness, even the smallest scenes, disappeared completely once McKeller was introduced fully. I mean, compare Prodigal and the episodes after Brainstorm - in Prodigal, you had Teyla and her baby, John and Rodney having some fun, Ronon actually having a moment with Woolsey; after Brainstorm, the McKeller ship was the only relationship on Atlantis to actually have a moment in every episode.
The writers missed the opportunity to have a seriously funny story, in showing McKay "trying hard" and "desperately" to get the girl and her True Love.
The unnatural think for a 25(or something) year old girl,is to not be interested in men, so they were right to want to get her a boyfriend.
And they were right to give McKay a romance, because he really needed it after loosing Katie.
I'll admit that i would love to see him with Cadman (making his life a hell , simply because "she's been in his head"lol).I would love to see a desperate, love-hate relationship there.
Yet, i started to like Keller and Rodney together since episode "Adrift" and i liked them even more in TLM, BUT, their relationship, as they presented it to us at season 5, wasn't what i wanted to see.
I wanted to see a real thing, fighting, envy,flirting, all the package! instead what we saw, imho, is a relationship that came out of nowhere.That's why people don't feel right about it.
If they'd made it a bit funnier, or tougher for McKay, it would just be part of the show more easily.A line here and there was all they gave, when they could make out a lot, simply because they had to do with "the geek" and the "pretty girl".
I don't mean that the show should focus on their "love-story", but they should have mixed it to the rest of the story-telling in a better way, so when they decided to give us an entire episode with just Rodney and Jennifer it wouldn't be such a shock, for some people.
I would love to see more of Sheppard making fun of Rodney because of it, or Ronon kicking his *** (by mistake?!!!) things like that...
I'm so glad the reds are gone as I can say this without fear of my profile looking like a Christmas Tree.
In what way do you feel that the relationship between McKay/Keller impacted the show overall?
Well I feel it actually made the show better. An actual romance that was shown on screen, that worked well and really developed the characters.
How did it affect the other characters?
It didn't really other than Ronon. Kinda liked the triangle between Ronon and Mckay.
How did it affect the characters of McKay and Keller?
It made Mckay actually show his human side, and made me like him even more and it made Keller even more likable.
Is there anything that the writers could have done differently?
Only thing they should have done is shown a little more of Mckay actually dating her or showing his feelings in more than just a few eps. They really only showed it in Trio and TLM and in the other eps it was just very subtle clues that he cared for her. Overall though I'm pleased with the outcome.
Were you pleased with the way the relationship was developed?
Overall I am. They could have done slightly more but overall the relationship was done fine.
This is of course all IMVHO.

I don't think Ikaros meant any offense. There is a language barrier (he's from Greece I believe) so keep that in mind too.
I don't think its so much of a language barrier as it just is a social norm. It is far more likely in today's world to see a woman (or man) pursue a hetrosexual relationship over a homosexual relationship. So I think Ikaros was just generalizing about the average woman's choice in dating and I don't think the insult was intended just stating right the majority to do.
But we are getting off topic. So I will continue to try to bring us back on topic and continue poor execution is why McKeller doesn't (IMO) work that well. TPTB didn't know plan it out and as a result certain events were rushed from McKay's deceleration of love in The Shrine and the love triangle in mid-S5. I would like to know when that triangle was resolved. We go from McKay/Ronon competing for Keller's love in The Lost Tribe and jump right to McKay and Keller flirting in Brain Storm. Like all Stargate their was no middle ground/
