    Oh, this episode is one of my all time favorites. To answer the first question, if I were Sam, I'd be itching for an opportunity to tell JACK to go 'knit something' during the next few weeks, even if I did forgive him.

    But the great part about Sam disobeying regulations by going through that gate with Orlin - that's something I've always liked seeing in her character. On the one hand, she's so above board; so keen and upstanding an officer (give she's been a General's daughter and a straight 'A' student throughout all her academia, that's not surprising) but to see those rare moments when she's goes completely against all protocol to do something she believes is right, I think those have always been empowering moments for her character. Much as when she followed Jack and the rest of SG-1 through the Stargate to save Earth, despite the fact that the Pentagon was about to shut down the entire Gate program. Wow, loved that too.

    Disobeying orders; or more to the point, figuring out that there are bigger issues than always obeying them has been a part of Sam's "growing up" process, I think. Both as an officer and as a person. A lot of catalysts came into play, Jack's irreverant influence for one, but also the fact that I think it's always been inside of her to be a rebel - she's just been supressing it so long and hard - it makes her character a lot more layered to think there's something of a "Starbuck" hidden inside of her somewhere. Itching to get out and wreak havoc on the 'system'. Ha. Sorry for the BSG analogy, but I figured it was the best picture I could draw for the moment!

    Anyway I'm rambling again. But Sam has precious few visible flaws on the surface of her character, and I like peeling her apart for that reason. She's a fun onion.

    Mineeeeeeeee!

        Pfft.. lol.

        MG you keep stating exactly how I feel about this character and what I find so appealing about her.

        I think it would be cool going forward, to explore some of her demons a little. Let's find out if there's some darkness in there that she's a little afraid of. I think the Repli!carter story line opened the door for that avenue a little. I wanna see Sam questioning her potential for lack of humanity. Throw some of those tough "do I wipe out a whole civilisation to acheive a goal" decisions at her. We know she's good to the core, but everyone has a little darkness. Sam has "great untapped potential"... as does exploring story lines that highlights that aspect of Sam.

        One more layer for her fun onion... which is a phrase that needs to be on a t-shirt you realise

        Oooh.. and let's not forget the pretty...

                      Yippee, something to look forward to. Thanks for sharing.
                      Beware of Spoilers for Off the Grid and Ripple Effect. So, those of you who want to avoid spoilers, be careful. Those of you who want to see what's coming in the second half of season 9, go for it, because
                      Spoiler:
                      there are some great news about Sam in these two episodes. I think that answers some of our concerns that we raised earlier. I for one can't wait for these two episodes now. Seems like spoilers here on GW really do not reveal everything, so there is always hope.


                      Agent Dark - there is a special treat for you in the article (if you're into spoilers, that is)
                      Spoiler:
                      Can you handle 15 Sam's???


                      Oh, BTW - maybe someone from the UK could let us know whether it's worth it to order the magazine, since it looks like there is more in the interview than what they posted on their website. Thanks in advance.

                          Thanks so much for the link, jckfan!

                          But
                          Spoiler:
                          Holy Crap! 15 Carters?!?! If Sam's as involved in Off The Grid as she says, and if Ripple Effect as team-heavy as it sounds
                          , then perhaps I can quit my whining for the time being.

                          I'm sure this has been discussed before, but is TV Zone solely a UK Magazine that we'd have to order online, or are there a choice few carriers here in the US? I won't be ordering it online, so will someone be providing a transcript?

                            Nice pics, Über! I always liked this episode...

                            (Perhaps it's because it was the first episode that I got my younger brother to WILLINGLY watch with me. Boys and video games... What're ya gonna do? )

                              Just popping in for a quick post. Just spotted this in a thread about S10. I wouldn't worry, though. I believe that
                              Spoiler:
                              S10 is almost a certainty, which is why one poster said SG-1 wasn't mentioned in the article:

                              How much confidence does SciFi Channel have in two of its three top shows? Enough to pretty much give them a go-ahead for a third season.
                              Sources at SciFi Channel are reporting that SciFi has unofficially decided to award both "Battlestar Galactica" and "Stargate: Atlantis" third-season pickups.

                                Oh, I think Sam likes a man with that little eyebrow scar too! I know I do!

                                Well, we all know that a good scene between Carter and Fraiser was cut out, which may have put some aspects of the issue in a different light for us. Dang it...

                                I would think that she'd be pretty ticked off at them for not believing her. She did everything she was supposed to do, didn't she? She told her Commanding Officer(s) the situation, and they dealt with it accordingly.

                                There have been some really good fanfics that deal with the fallout of both Ascension and Threshold. They're amazing, actually. (If I'm not mistaken, Sky's the author of one...)
                                What was cut? I never knew this! Lucy, you got some ‘splainin’ to do!
