    This is exactly how this episode should have ended!
    Why are so many of the episodes this season lacking any drama whatsoever?
    Even in episodes where I should have felt some sort of tension and worry, I
    felt nothing. Enough with the CGI already. Just throw the team in a room together and
    give us something beautifully written like Solitudes or Abyss that will leave us
    wanting more.
    as much as i knew i was going to miss rda/jack mega amounts, i could still see sg1 being a team together. REALLY being a team, with all the 'oohs' and 'aahs' still intact.

    i think, for *me*, the reason this isn't happening is of two reasons. 1 - the writing isn't going in that direction. the writers aren't trying to make us jell with this group. and 2 (the sore spot for me AND the reason number 1 isn't happening) - it ain't working because they've got mitchell as leader instead of sam.

    mitchell doesn't only not have the experience to *lead* these ppl, he doesn't have the presense that jack did. with jack, you felt his presense of leadership. with mitchell... i think they had two ways of going with this. either make him another jack type character (a larger than life and 'clearly' the lead), or make him at the same level as sam, daniel, and teal'c, with 'all' of them basically having a say in how things were going down. i believe the writers took the latter, which i think is hurting the team 'and' show. it was almost like a lose/lose situation.

    the only scenario(s) i could see this working in is:

    1 - better writing. hands down.
    2 - have him larger than life/*obvious* leader (like jack).
    or
    3 - have sam lead.

    because, *to me*, mitchell doesn't have the leadership presense, the team can't jell together anymore. sam, daniel, and teal'c don't love this man. they won't follow him to hell and back. they don't *know* him like they knew jack. they either should have had mitchell cast with an older actor, or they should have left things alone and let sam be the leader again.

    all the scenes that have come into my mind on *really* having this group feel like a team; they all take place with sam leading the group. because daniel and teal'c *would* follow *sam* to hell and back. the trust and intimacy is already there with sam in the leadership spot. it's not there with mitchell. and if mitchell were played by an older actor, at least the others would feel the pull of his presense (of course depending on the casting *tom selleck*, or even beau bridges).

    of course, this is all just personal taste.

      Mini it's an excellent idea, and I'm sure I remember Julia saying that it's fine and that the Gabit Crew would ship the poster back safely for her. If in doubt, send Julia a PM. She also said it would be two Gateworlders who would be allowed to go and present the poster, so told us to nominate two people.

      I'll get to work. Arrrgh. So much to say, not enough room to say it!

      Yes I am in correspondence with Mini over this. The answer is "yes" two of you can present it to her at the autograph session representing Samandans. Just nominate two of you who are going to Gabit. I will *personally* take responsibility for shipping the poster over to her after the convention on your behalf. I've explained what I need for that. Great idea.

        Thank you for clarifying that, Julia. I thought I remembered you saying it, but I can never be sure. That's why I told her to PM you.

        I hope you're keeping well. I haven't seen you on the Gabit boards for a few days. Been quiet this weekend. Did you get Mumsey back?
        Yepp, it's blank down here.

          Yes the G4 have climbed out of the dreaded virus, although if you heard Becky and I on the phone taking it in turns to cough you'd think we were still in the throes! LOL! Been busy at work last week so not much time for Internet stuff and then a hectic weekend, but I'm back and will be around from now on, so never fear. I keep a quiet but close eye on everyone on the Gabit Forum - someone has to watch you guys!!!
          Ooh we never get Mumsey back. She's far to quick for us, plus we love her too much!!

            Lol. Don't let her catch you saying that... her head might inflate!!

            Good to hear that you and Becks are feeling better. And what do you mean someone has to keep an eye on us We're always well behaved. We would never dream of plotting water pistol fights or Who's The Craziest competitions!! am:

              if amanda left, i'd bail. i love (used to anyways) this show, but sam/amanda IS the show for me. it wouldn't matter if amanda's replacement was an actress that i really liked (gillian anderson comes to mind), i'd still quit the show. sam is a one of a kind character, and amanda's put her stamp on her *and* the show. it's like losing a limb and expecting to still be able to dance. sam/amanda is irreplaceable *to me*.

                With me i've always thought I loved the show for EVERYTHING, not just one char... but
                Spoiler:
                Without Jack at all
                I'm realizing how much I really do need everyone to be there... I really havn't been pleased with the new season (at all) and if Cam, Vala, Danny
                Spoiler:
                On MS's new limited schedule
                and Teal'c, I can't see myself downloading eps anymore. If it comes on tv, i'll watch it if I can... but for sure Amanda leaving fully would be the end for me. I'd still watch it, I wouldn't refuse, but I for SURE wouldnt get all hooped up about it. It'd fade slowly into "another show I watch when I can" Just the prospect seems horrid to me who's been watching for a huge long time, but hey, that's the way the cookie's been crumbling...

                but I'd reather not dwell on those thoughts!!! I figure "If it happens, it happens, and i'll deal with it then!" no sense doom-saying now...
