This is the way my shipping goes on the Western TVs: I develop a ship and then the show immediately destroys it. Finally, I was all about Ronon/Elizabeth and then, quite literally, boom! Bastards.

But then I had a huge revelation about this show and what keeps me watching. And I realized that I am gripped because clearly the writers have decided that what they should do is write a show about a bunch of people making a set of quite terrible decisions over and over and over again and then terrible things occur and Ronon/Teyla/(sometimes)Elizabeth say 'maybe you shouldn't have done that!' but no one listens at all and then they wait for a bit and do much the same thing again. (Seriously, I think the writers essentially get together and say 'hey, what's the dumbest thing these people or the Earthbound ones could do? Why don't we do that next? That should get the last remaining 20% of the galaxy that's not mad with them yet plenty angry.')

It's like watching goldfish. Not every bright goldfish, mind you, but they're mainly very pretty and get some good lines in. And I will now watch the rest of the show waiting with excitement for the next deadly enemy they will provoke into attacking them by some thoroughly dumb decision.

The only downside is still can't stand McKay and he now seems to be about 80% of the show.

ALAS! Sadly, I fear that only Sheppard and McKay get to have actual interactions on a regular basis. Because they're the only ones the writers like.

I swear this show only exists to torment with the possibility of things I might enjoy only to CRUSH ME.

I have no desire to watch SGA, but I have really been enjoying your recaps!

Space Vampires! Idiots! McKay!

The Evil Space Vampire are great. Sadly, despite the fact that they've been ruling that galaxy for 10,000 years they appear incapable of doing something as simple as killing McKay. Clearly, they are just not trying hard enough. Bad space vampires! Bad!

My two SGA ships are Elizabeth/Ronon and John/Ronon so I definitely feel your pain. *hugs*

I have a knack for picking doomed or impossible ships. I usually get taunted by the writers giving me the vague possibility only to CRUSH MY HOPES AND DREAMS in the next episode.
