was kind enough to lend me her Stargate Atlantis season 1 DVDs a while back and I finally finished watching the three part finale--which is just as painfully cruel as Kripke with its cliffhanger. John Sheppard's hair is...awesome doesn't do it justice. Every time I see him I want to tug at his hair. It's awkward because there's a student in my advanced spanish class who bears a remarkable resemblance to Sheppard. He even has the same laid-back attitude as Sheppard. Also, Rodney Mckay is kind of a yellow-bellied whiner but I love him just the same because he's an arrogant, snarky, scientific genius who always pulls through in the end.
I gotta say, though, his lips bug the hell out of me. It's all pulled to one side so every time I see Mckay, I subconcsiously tilt my head to the side a bit to make it even. One must note that when I size a guy up, I look at three main attributes: hair, eyes, lips. Mckay doesn't really meet my standards on any of these attributes but his personality is overly appealing in an annoying and amusing sort of way. I do love the guy, though, and through kripkes_angel

's recs, I've been thoroughly introduced to the McShep 'ship. Yay. Such an endearing pair; they never fail to make me giggle.
Also, on SGA, awesome female characters that haven't died or been killed off (yet, as far as I'm aware) like Teyla who can beat Sheppard with a stick and Weir who can stare/talk down a group of trained, battle-hardened military men. Oh, thank you SGA-creator-who's-name-I-haven't-
learned-yet!! (Merlin got points for this too before Morgana and Gwen started disappointing me but that's a different story entirely that probably has spoilers some might not want to read).
Oh, and Alistair v. 2.0 is in it as a loving, doting Athosian father. It is mega creepy seeing him fuss over his son after seeing him mindscrew Dean with sadistic pleasure. And Mary Winchester's dad is in it. Instead of being a Campbell, he's a Caldwell. And there's a character with the surname of Novak. So, it's like getting a dose of pseudo-SPN while watching it. Beckett, the doctor-ish person, was a guest in the episode Fallen Idols(?) of SPN. He was with the Little Bastard, sadly without the wicked accent.
In conlcusion: I'm looking foward to seeing season 2.

There are others, I'm sure, but I'm too tired to think of them right now.
