Storyline

Rodney is returning to Earth for his 2 weeks of leave and to attend a colleague's presentation on a scientific breakthrough. He's also managed to work up the gumption to ask Jennifer Keller if she will accompany him and she agrees. On Earth, they're attending a scientific conference hosted by Rodney's rival, Malcolm Tunney, against whom he has been competing for most of his life. When Tunney announces technology to solve global warming, McKay accuses him of stealing his ideas. Tunney decides to give his guests a live demonstration but when he finds he can't turn the devise off, he turns to McKay for help. The crisis also allows McKay and Jennifer to express their true feelings for one another. Written by garykmcd

repeat (running out of ideas?
25 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

are the writers running out of ideas? i sure hope not. but doesn't this story seem a little "familiar"? how many others were disappointed with this last episode? now don't get me wrong i LOVE stargate: atlantis, but all they did was take a previous episode and set it on earth now laughing out loud. and all the other scientists equal a second Rodney McKay laughing out loud. loved the idea of freeze lightning, it was an interesting concept. and the tornado effects were neat too. and Dave Foley was a nice addition for a cameo. lol, UM.... 10 LINES HUH? can't wait to see the next episode, and i hope the series lasts for a very very very long time.
