ok, ok.... so i was watching Scifi like, two seconds ago (they're currently playing last week's episode) when suddenly, during the commercials, the narrator-guy said, "and now, a sneak peak of the all new episode of Stargate Atlantis" (the one where something is causing McKay to loose his mind) ... i then LEAP from the chair i was sitting at and RUN to the TV in like, .002 seconds!! Ok!! now onto the actual clip!!
ok, it appears to be really late at night and you see Rodney running through the halls. He looks scared. like, seriously freaked out. I'm just all like, "Squee! Angst!!" but then, Rodney stops running and starts pounding on the door he had stopped at. but then... and this is where i melted in absolute squee... Rodney starts pounding on the doors, and hes yelling, "John! John!!"
i collapsed in a fit of unadulterated squee right then and there.
ok, back to the clip: you then get a cut scene inside the room, and it is john's quarters. John, having been waken by Mckay's yelling, jumps out of bed and runs to the door. as soon as he opens it, Rodney grabs his shoulders and, still being freaked out, starts babbling about something, something like, "i woke up in the labs and they were all gone!"
Rodney!! what's happened to you!? all i know about the episode from the previews, is that something has caused Rodney to start loosing his mind. oh no! Rodney!!
but the reason that this small, less than a minute clip, had such an impact on me, is that in this season, the writers havent done anything with John and Rodney! One of my favourite aspects of the show was John and Rodney's HILARIOUS but unlikely friendship! but all the interaction that they have really had was the occasional, "Get back to work, Rodney!" from john... and this had SERIOUSLY depressed me! but hopefully, HOPEFULLY, the writers will redeem themselves with this episode!!
ok, like my sister, i am not that interested in the ROMANTIC pairings. seriously. there are SOME that i actually like (like JacobxMowo!), but those are few and far between. for me, i love to see the friendships develop. like John and Rodney, or Jack and Daniel!
ok, so now i need to go watch the episode! it comes on at 10, and its like, 9:53.
