  • Rodney and Keller's Excellent Adventure on Earth.

    This episode was so painful to watch. TPTB on Stargate Atlantis have become 'shippers and decided to stick a romance down the viewers throats - which is not the reason I watch SGA. Hello, sci-fi show!

    With Keller's constant nagging to Rodney, it made me wonder why he would ever want to date the woman. The Rodney/Keller relationship (I use that term loosely) has felt forced for a few episodes, as the actors have no chemistry together, but Martin Gero (writer for this ep) must feel that after a decade of SG-1 and five years of SGA we now need to turn these sci-fi shows into One Tree Hill. Bad move. Rodney & Keller are not Mulder and Scully, nor could they ever claim to have any hope of becoming a great sci-fi couple. Face it they are dull together. So, get rid of this dull romance and get back to putting sci-fi back into the show.

    Final analysis: Poorly written and executed. Skip this episode, even Bill Nye's guest shot couldn't save this.
