Shep obviously was not happy about it, but Rodney saying that's how he remembered it was too funny.

Only thing that would have made it better would be if Ronan was aslo cowering behind Rodney along with John. That would have been hilarious.

If he had a camera, he has already emailed that pic to the entire expedition. It is most definitely his screensaver.

When Harmony mentioned that she had a painting done, I had a feeling the painting would focus more on McKay then Sheppard(seeing how her attraction was towards McKay now), but nothing could have prepared me for seeing the actual pic, I burst into laughter so hard that I was literally crying. This was truely one of those moments of stargate that will always stand out.:)

Who else would love to see a shot of that painting hanging in Rodney's quarters the way Ronon has the painting in his quarters?

I don;t ask much for future episodes, just a little bit where Shep sees it and gets this exasperated look on his face. Never mind if(look, HUGE spoilers for later in the season, please don't read if you don't want to be spoiled) it was one of the first things Carson saw when he comes back.

I didnt like that picture. Sheppard saved them and he is made out to be a coward? And I don't like that little girl either.

That was clearly the highlight/best joke of the episode. I almost feel like this epsidoe may have been written backward from having that painting (or something that honor McKay while making John the coward) in mind.

I just used the HD link, right clicked on it and selected 'use as background'.

It fitted fine for me.

Sorry I clicked on it first to get the larger image, and it opens it in a new window and then do the above.

Hope that helps.

OMG the painting was so funny Mckay definetly has pics of it.

I wonder if David Hewlett has it as he has one of the paintings from the game he can make fun of Joe forever with it just like Mckay can make fun of shep lol

I just find it hilarious how she had Shep not only depicted in the painting as hiding just behind Rodney but her standing all triumphant there in front of him to--That's just evil.
The fact that :sheppard:'s been immortalized this way--oh man.lol.

You know, I was a little disapointed with this episode. At least until the painting was revealed. When I saw that painting I LMAO, so much so that my landlord knocked on my door to ask me to keep it down.

OK so wait a minute... if the whole idea was that the people on the planet werent supposed to know that Sheppard and McKay protected Harmony, then doesnt the painting just give that all away?

Anyone remember those paintings of McKay in The Game? If so, notice how the style of the paintings is the same as the painting in Harmony? I'd bet that they were painted by the same artist, the Satedan painting as well.

Thoughts?

Harmony wasn't supposed to be hunted by "all of them" Genii either. Given the circumstances it was prudent for the older sister to protect the younger from the betrayal of the middle. What a mouthful...

I LOVE this painting. The first time we saw it my mom and I couldn't stop laughing for at least five minutes. I think we were both crying too. My brother looked at us like we'd each grown a second head.

A little bit ago my mom saw that I was on the forum, and she asked if there was a thread about the painting. I found this thread, and saved the picture that somebody posted here. Mom had me e-mail the picture to her. I just set it as the background on my laptop. :D

Um, no. He wasn't there nor did he have anything to do with the Harmony conflict.


if that painting made it back to atlantis Shep would never hear the end of it.

No, I'm pretty sure nobody would buy it, as they know both characters, and everyone would just roll their eyes and shrug off Rodney's flaunting it.


Finally!!! The truth has be recoded. Beating would had being easier for Sheppard but he was hit were it hurts the most. :mckayanime03:

Not really. Sheppard was pretty nonchalant about it, and would most likely forget it within the hour.


<snip>


I really think episodes like this, at times, go too overboard trying to "make a funny" to appease the "fans" who watch it for the cheap jokes.
The genuine humor of Stargate that relies more on knowing the character and the situation was not to be found in this episode.
The painting was mildly amusing, but incredibly predictable.
