Joe M's blog: Ships and What Ifs.


Insightful, attentive, giving us fans an explanation without getting all sarcastic. Sure makes a nice change from that godawful Q&A with Gero the other day. *is impressed*

It doesn't change the fact that I still don't like the McKeller pairing, I still wish the writers had gone for Ronon/Keller, I still much rather see Sheppard and McKay's friendship explored than Rodney and Keller having lunch and I still resent the fact that after five years of team adventures, we get an unpopular canon ship pasted to the end of the show. But whining about it isn't going to help and I'll shut up now.

Recurring gay character... Probably Lorne, which makes Lorne/Parrish CANON. Haha.

You see, as snarky and occasionally as dismissive as Joe can get, at least his answers make sense. And occasionally, he will listen and try to explain something -- and I really do appreciate that. I don't always care for the sarcasm, sometimes it seems a bit extreme, but I do love when he demonstrates that he's a very articulate person who actually thinks about what he writes. It's why I started reading his blog in the first place. I'm not sure why his episodes fall so flat half the time, but I don't think I've ever been offended by them (like I was by "Brain Storm"), or by what he's said. I might laugh or snicker, but he doesn't usually rile me the way he does other people.

And it's a really refreshing blog post to read after all of those Gero interviews (boy, do they seriously need to muzzle that man.) I get the feeling from reading that post, that he's very carefully not saying something -- but I could be imagining it.

That would make my WEEK. Just for lulz alone! My money is on Chuck, though. There's just something about the way he caresses the DHD so tenderly ;)

at least his answers make sense.

After reading Mallozzi's explanation I still don't understand why he and Gero were so eager to put McKay in a relationship. And they wanted to give Rodney a child no less! How does that even go with McKay's position on Atlantis? *sigh* I just wish they would flat out admit they bungled the writing of this pairing. Maybe if there had been a season 6, if Mallozzi and Gero could have shown us that McKeller doesn’t affect the team dynamics and doesn't affect the friendship between Sheppard and McKay things would have been okay. But the second it was announced that S5 is the final season, they should have dropped this pairing like the hot potato it is.

But okay. Enough with the wailing. At least Mallozzi made a serious effort to address some of the issues that the fans have with S5 and I respect him for it.

And oh, you're right, I forgot about Chuck! And he's Canadian - no upset calls from the Pentagon about how the US Military is Totally Not Gay, thank you very much. ;)

ETA: I just finished watching Infection and I must say, I really enjoyed it. Team, ruthless military commander, Todd, Woolsey, crashing hive ships. Why is everybody so awfully quiet about this episode?
