    They say time apart makes the heart grow fonder, but that doesn't appear to be the case with the Sam Carter character and her insertion into the newest Stargate SG-1 episodes. I've always loved the Sam character, her smarts, determination and that underlying (very underlying) sense of humor. BUT, am I the only one who notices just how out of place she is in the most recent episodes? She just doesn't seem to be clicking with the other characters on the show, even with the one's she's been alongside for the last 8 years!

    I'm not sure what's up, whether the Sam character has just gotten stale after so much time or whether it's poor writing? Or perhaps it was the brilliant performace by Claudia Black (Vala) early in the season that really blows the lid off of how boring Col. Carter has become. Does anyone else see a way to fix this? Or am I the only one that notices? Take a look back at how great & vital Sam was in season 8; then look at what she is now and you tell me.

      Otherwise... No. I'm into the one-on-one interaction, my friend!

      Though I do have crossover fantasies that involve these three kicking some major tail in the sky. And Sam doesn't have to ride shotgun anymore.

      May she never have to do so again.

        I think that the vibe from Sam came from a couple things...First, the fact that Sam was wary to be back because she was only supposed to be there temporarily. Second, because Amanda was exhausted and also slightly unsure of herself at first...which played in nicely with how Sam felt.

        That being said, the Sam I saw in Prototype and 4th Horseman is "back on track" for me...that's not to say I didn't love the Beachhead Sam, EDM Sam or Babylon Sam...she was just more subdued in those episodes for the reasons stated above.

          Thanks for the offer, but it honestly wouldn't come CLOSE to doing the message justice.

                Right now, what would you say your weapon of choice is?

                I'm thinking staff weapon. Or maybe two.

                                As a Sam fan, you have nothing to fear from me my friend.

                                However there are those in tftmnbn that have much to fear.
