Stargate Atlantis - "Brain Storm"

Rodney McKay is an interesting character. On the one hand, he still manages to be annoying and unlikeable even after five seasons and I find myself asking, shouldn't the character have grown a little more by now? And then he goes and has a scene or two where he seems not so much insecure as vulnerable, and Keller gives him that shiny-eyed smile and we see him through her eyes, and somehow he manages to be still annoying... but likeable.

I also liked seeing so many real-life scientists actually be in (or in some cases represented in) the show. Gives it a nice reality touch.

And one has to wonder if McKay's musings at the end of the episode is going to turn out to be relevant to Stargate: Universe....
