it really depends on her new role. Ideally 5 or 6 but that might not fit the storyline

Skydiver
February 3rd, 2008, 04:34 PM
and 1 isn't an option since we know it'll be at least one and we know it won't be 0 :)

I think she'll appear in 6 eps. I'm certainly hoping for more but she's a recurring character in s5. anyway both Joe and AT have said that they would like to bring her back for several eps so I think six eps are realistic but at the same time I'm hopeful for more

Ideally I'd want 6 but most likely no more than 4 or 5.

I voted for 7.

13 epidsodes of Sanctuary + 7 of SGA = a regular 20 episode season.

Go Sam :sam:

Thanks for the poll :)

Neat poll,Skydiver.:cool:
My very cautious guess is for only 3 Carter ep appearances.
The opener,plus two in the back half,if Sanctuary scheduling permits.

I'm going for a 3 aswell, mostly as I'm slightly cynical to the nature of 'recurring' when previous characters have been touted as such, then only shown up in about that many.

Skydiver
February 3rd, 2008, 05:04 PM
i'm thinking 3 as well...and super optimistically for 5, but i just doubt that there'll be as much room for her as some would like. the show and stories will move on

SeaBee
February 3rd, 2008, 05:11 PM
I've gone for 2. I have a feeling it will be the first 2 eps, followed by "Don't let the iris catch you on the way out."

Ditto ! :) I'm cagey too.Especially after BAMSR .( The last tiny scene.;))

Three with an upper limit of five ,if Carter is used right and there's room for her.That could work .:cool:
Normally ,I would be an optimist ,but I think it'd be unrealistic to want the PTB to cram Carter in too many episodes .
They already have to introduce and flesh out the new commander,plus Captain Porter ,and fit in the usual mix or stories.
I'm hoping the Carter eps are few ,but used wisely to add to the mix.Like you say ,the show/stories move on.

Definitely less than 7, most likely less than 5, perhaps even 2-3. I guess I'll vote for 4. :D

4.

I've gone for three. We know Carter is in one, and I'm thinking, all being well, AT might be available for two near the end of the season. With AT's priority being on Sanctuary, I just can't see how she'll be able to fit in any more episodes. :(

I'll take what I can get, but I voted for 3. Remember what happened to Jack and Jonas.

Skydiver
February 4th, 2008, 04:22 AM
with the idea taht, once sanctuary is done, her availability will be about the same as this year - in other words, much more open after the mid season break - i can see that she'd be AVAILABLE for a good chunk of the second half...but i have a feeling that the show will move on without her and, although she might have the time, they just won't have the motivation.

I'm not saying that it's mean or unreasonable or anything...the show will just move on. That's how it happens.

I think that, after S&R, Sam will be gone, but there will be an effort to bring her back in the second half (knowing that she'll have more time) and that'll be about it.

I went with 4 as well - the resolution to the S4 finale and another to write her out. Then a couple of more later. The hard part to guessing is not knowing (as SJSL pointed out) what her new role is. Why is Carter leaving - illness, marriage, new assignment, new enemy in MW? Her appearances have to make sense.

She can easily be reassigned. Illness? Allergy to Rodney McKay? Didn't pay her taxes? ;)

Hmm... the thing is there has always been the potential to remove her. After all, if they make more SG1 films, the character wouldn't be there... (nor would the actress), unless they filmed during the time SGA wasn't filming...

February 4th, 2008, 01:32 PM
I'll say 4.5- the opener, and then the beginning of the second episode in more of cameo appearance as a goodbye/changing of the guard of Atlantis leader, and she'll come back near the end of the season for two or three eps.

So I voted 4. ;)

Killdeer

I put five, but that was the most I thought she might appear in. I'm guessing between 3-5. I think she'll have two right off, as Ruffles said. And then possibly one more in the first half and a couple in the second half depending on her schedule.

Shan Bruce Lee

I agree with what you said. I would love to see her in as many episodes as possible. I voted for a wildly optimistic 6 but, realistically, think it will likely be a lot less. I read somewhere that Sanctuary would be done filming in July and I think that is when Stargate usually takes its break. If that is the case, AT would be available for the last half of the season. Unfortunately, with a new commander, a new recurring character (Porter), the return of Beckett, etc I doubt she will be included in many scripts. :(

Platschu
February 5th, 2008, 02:45 PM
4. Samantha Carter will appear in several episodes.

Given Amanda’s upcoming commitment, it’s impossible to offer an exact number of episodes. As I said, it really has everything to do with a) her schedule and b) the types of stories we come up with. However, I can say that, at present, we do have her locked in for two.

Yes, then two is all we'll get.
Carter deserves a really good send-off- like Daniel Jackson got in Meridian. (Not that I want her to die, mind you, but after being on Stargate for 11 years it would be nice for her to get her own episode). But with two eps, she won't get it. Those are just to finish off the the end-of-the season cliffhanger, the first two episodes of the new season.

Then it'll be a couple of lines about where she's going and why, and that's it.

I hate to be terribly cynical, but I don't really buy this. It's good press for both of them to say that, isn't it? We know AT will probably have the time in the second half of the season, but it's contingent upon "b) the types of stories we can come up with."

That doesn't sound really encouraging to me. Why would they go out of their way to write her in? And even if they do, is she going to get the big Sam-centered ep she deserves after eleven years? Not as a guest appearance, she's not.

yeah I don't expect a Sam-centered ep but I think there's at least the possibility for one or two additonal eps as a guest star. hey it's better than nothing. I think out of all the characters TBTB might consider bringing back for another ep in the back half, she's the one with the best chances. why? because like you said this character's been around for eleven years and Atlantis is probably the last chance to see her again (except for future movies of course). I certainly hope for more Sam in s5 (and future season) :)

atlantis is the my fave chance of seeing more sam. the movies are kind of depressing for me, because it includes certain elements i don't enjoy. atlantis is a good and entertaining show, that's included the wonderful character of sam into it's mythology. joe and amanda have a good relationship and her leaving hasn't left any negative feelings behind. i'd say the chances of including sam in future eps is very good. :)

i'm REALLY curious, though, on how sam's being written out (as leader). it's got to be something that won't be hard for sam to come back from. (marriage to jack would work for me :D, as would ship commander :D)

I feel the same way, there are a lot of possibilities. it's good to know that both AT and Joe try to to include her in some more s5 eps (back half) and hopefully also some in s6

sally :sam:

LOl you know I'd actually be happy if TBTB would confirm her relationship with Jack. then this issue would finally be settled and everybody could move on. I think TBTB would never write her out in a way that might damage the character so I don't really worry about that. as long as they give her the possibility to show up in future eps :)

I think it depends on how they write her out. I would use "Michael" as an example of an ep that was a huge meaty role for a guest star. If they storyline supports it, they can certainly write an ep that features her in a return spot.

She's in two episodes right now. I'm guessing that's Search and Rescue and the episode that explains her leaving. I'm guessing that episode (as yet unidentified) will be a big Sam-centered episode. However, you're right that return guest appearances are probably only going to have her assisting the regular crew, rather than having the episode center around her.

I voted 4, casue it all depends on the storyline and if she's aviable, she's starting her new show Sancturary. New or new, they made 8 webisodes.
But if she's commited to that show she probably won't be around as much in SGA. I love to see here in SGA, but for me she will always be associated with SG-1.
