they tend to ignore stuff like that.

in solitudes jack broke his leg and had internal bleeding...and was fine the next week.

Yup, but then days or weeks can go past between eps so depending on the injury there might not be any need to mention it again...

and sometimes they cram 5 episodes into a 4 week time span :)

Evolution, Part 1
Evolution, Part 2
Grace
Fallout
Chimera
Deathknell

in DK sam says it's been a month since we got the telchak device. so evolution, grace, fallout, chimera and death knell all happened in a month

kinda unlikely :)

Yeah I see what you mean... Maybe they all heal faster in the SG universe :P, best guess is TPTB don't want to dwell on any inconveniences like an injury from a previous ep unless it serves the story/ep at hand...

Maybe because "Midway" filmed right BEFORE "Trio" and thus meant to air before it?

I suppose they meant to have it set 6 weeks after Trio (when the cast would have come off), but yeah, a limp or something wouldn't have hurt.

Yeah, this was yet another thing about this episode that bugged me. I just wrote it off as a TV convenience, such as the infamous "6 weeks later..." plot device. I've have liked a limp though:(.

Won't it be funny if she has a limp or a crutch in the next episode:)?

Sam was really banged up in Deathknell but in Heroes, there was nothing wrong with her.

Also in Line in the Sand in S10 she had a staff wound so bad that Mitchell had to do a field surgery to save her life, and in The Road not Taken right after she didn't even have a scar on her back.

I guess the producers don't really care about details as much as the fans do.

At least McKay cured Ronon's scars in Sunday. But what about Teyla? She was wounded badly at the explosion, but she could wear her short in next episode easily. :P

Once again, people, one season spans an entire year, but each episode only focuses on important events. As such, we can have an entire episode span a few weeks or even months(WoO in SG-1, Epiphany in SGA) or only a few hours(Quarantine, Trio). Along with that, the timespan BETWEEN episodes may also vary from a few seconds, minutes, hours(in the case of cliffhangers) to days, weeks, months. It is only a mistake if such neglect happens when the time passed IS mentioned, which is not the case here.
Also, as someone else mentioned, Midway was supposed to air BEFORE Trio.

still betcha money that sam doesn't limp in kindred...and using teyla's pregnancy as a measurement, there's no way 6 weeks passed :)

they ignore pesky things like continuity unless it plays into what they want to do with the show

And Kindred, Last Man and Search And Rescue are supposed to be pretty tight together, timewise, so she's pretty close to popping it out...:p 8 months-9 months...Not that big a difference, really...
Gah, who am I kidding? You're right, they do ignore this kind of stuff. But this time there's a valid explanation...

Skydiver

my point is :)

teyla looks just as preggers before trio that she does after, kinda implying that there's no way 6+ weeks passes. (even getting her cast off, sam would still limp for a while)

but they just ignore it when it's inconvenient

i'd have been surprised had they dealt with it.

then again, the only reason teyla's pregnancy has lasted all season is because they couldn't speed it up and have her have her baby in a 6 week arc.

you can always tell when a pregnancy or injury is real in how long it lasts.

Ahahahahahahah:D! I can just imagine. "Listen, Rachel, we want you to have a c-section at 7 and a half months. We have this great episode in planning, and we don't want Teyla's pregnancy to span more than 6 episodes."

Yeah in another show, Supernatural, Sam face is badly cut to point that he should had scar, but no his face doesnt even have a scatch on it, later on.

Most injuries 'heal' between episodes, or characters deal with any psychological ramifications to torture (such as "Common Ground") in the same time period. Sigh...

THe only time I think I've ever seen a character get a scar that sticks is when an actor gets one. In the series FX, actor Cameron Daddo got a scar on the cheek from an FX effect, which he had throughout season 2, but afterwards, it appeared he had plastic surgery to get rid of it.

Don't they have some sort of Ancient healing doohickey? They got a scanner..

I can accept the recovery between episodes, but what happened with Teal'c in Midway? He was hurt by the Wraith, but when he walked with Ronon in the next scene, than the wounds disappeared from his chest. ;)
