Will Friday bring the Best of Dr. Keller episodes?

I would put the first season episode “Hide and Seek” on this list. After Rodney’s work on SG-1 I felt that this was a necessary episode to make Rodney a more likeable character as he braved death to save everyone else. This was an early, but important step for Rodney’s character.

That was an entirely facetious comment regarding Keller episodes. Many thanks for the interesting choices and commentaries you have presented.

Great choices. However, after just viewing the Tao of Rodney yesterday, I’d have to put it ahead of the Shrine. I forgot just how moving and amazing that episode was! When Weir tells Rodney that they all love him, it’s a very touching moment.

I can’t restrict myself to a top 5 or even a top ten for Rodney McKay best episodes. If I could force myself to do it I’d choose from the following 12 episodes: The Eye “I’m an extremely arrogant man who tends to believe that all his plans will work”; Duet “Well, we can’t all be track stars, now, can we?”; Trinity “Look, I don’t know how else to say this, but none of you are capable of understanding this on the same level that I do.”; Grace Under Pressure “Oh, wow! I’m arguing with myself about who had an… Read more »

The Shrine has to top the list for sure. others I liked were Duet, and I prefered Miller’s Crossing to Mckay and mrs miller. Also, Letters from pegasus, although it wasn’t as mckay centric as the others. He has some great moments in every episode really.

I’d have to agre with ShiViva. I have loved McKay since SG1! Narrowing his performance to a top five is just too well narrow. You have to make room for his super size ego and snark! Big heart and Cowardly lion soul. I’d had to say though. The best line he ever spouted that had me rolling on the floor in tears laughing was Duet. “Dr. Fumbles McStupid!” 38 minutes.. “Because I’m the only one who truly comprehends how screwed we are!” and most importantly “In-Vul-Ner-Able” :D. Sorry can’t shove Rodney into a small corner. He wouldn’t go quietly. All… Read more »

I love the character of Rodney, but haven’t really liked most of the eps where he is the focus, other than The Shrine, which was superb. Mostly I enjoyed his interactions with the other characters, especially Shep and wish we’d seen more time devoted to his relationships with Teyla and Ronon.
His back and forth with Zelenka never ceases to amuse me.
(Unfortunately, I have started to dislike him a bit in the latter half of this season, and I blame the McKeller effect for that – he seems much less himself around her and I don’t like it)

My all time favorite episodes are Duet (for laughs) and The Shrine (for tears). I loved all the episodes with his real life sister. I hope she is in the movies. They are great on screen together.

I love Rodney and I have to say for once that I agree with your top five list for best episodes for a character. Then again since this is Rodney McKay’s list I have to say that you could have easily had other episodes picked and I still would have agreed with it since there isn’t a McKay centric episode I didn’t love. I will miss seeing David Hewlett/Rodney McKay the most when Atlantis finally ends :-(

The entire show has been the best of Rodney McKay. Are there even other people on this show?

I would say The Shrine was such an amazing episode for all invlolved, not just for Rodney, although DH was spectacular in it.
