What is a fanlisting?

According to The Fanlistings Network: "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join.  There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country.  Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are); they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans.  TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans."


The subject of this fanlisting is the Stargate Atlantis episode 214 Grace Under Pressure.  Rodney McKay is trapped in a sinking puddle jumper and, with a little help from a hallucination of Sam Carter, he tries to save himself while everyone Atlantis tries to save him from above.

I loved this episode.  I'm a huge Rodney fan and a huge Sam fan, so I loved watching the two of them snarking it out on screen.  David Hewlett's acting in this episode was truly superb, he is so watchable and you feel like you could watch him on screen all by himself for the whole episode.  Rodney's scared and injured and concussed, and we watch him try to make sense of the situation and do all that he can to keep himself alive and help the others to find his sinking jumper.  Then he starts hallucinating and Sam shows up.  Through both the Rodney babbling and through his hallucination, we gain such an insight into Rodney's character, his thoughts, his feelings, his insecurities.  I also enjoyed watching all the those left in Atlantis went through to save Rodney; even in such a Rodney-centric episode, the others are not forgotten.  I really loved this episode.

The name Hallucination comes from the fact that Rodney sees a hallucination of Sam Carter while he is trapped; it seemed appropriate.
