      Hi Samandans!

      Nice to know that I can consider myself a Samandan even though I really only lurk and have just posted here a handful of times. I can barely keep up with you all with just lurking!

      I agree that was such a great scene. Both ladies were so delightful in that episode. And you’re right, there were many good moments between Sam and the other characters this season.

      Although I have some (okay, a lot of) problems with Season 9, I think Sam has had many wonderful moments this year and I hope she will have even more next season. Some things I loved about Season 9 – Sam’s interactions with Cam and Daniel in Arthur’s Mantle, her reunion with Teal’c in Ethon, the ‘Mary Poppins’ scene in OTG, Sam in charge in Babylon and Stronghold (yay!), and of course multiple Sams in Ripple Effect (you can’t get much better than a roomful of Sams). As you can tell, I’m trying to be optimistic today and that has been a very rare occasion of late, so I thought I had better post now before I get all depressed and pessimistic about Stargate again.

        Whoa is right! She really looked like a different person in that scene. Everytime I rewatch that I feel so upset myself for both the character and Amanda. What she must have been feeling to expand on that
        emotional breakdown. Whew!
        she had such a range in that eps. from soldier to grieving friend to ticked off woman and everything in between

        definitely a good change from 'exposition girl'

          the CMOH is quite often given posthumously because it's not a medal that they hand out like candy. It's the nation's highest honor. folks that get this, they get little perks like EVERYONE salutes them...even thier superiors. They get other perks and bonuses and little honorifics.

          CMOH's are also not given out by mere lt colonels....the prez himself normally gets that honor.

          I think that the writers, in their rush to promote cam and pimp him, forgot to google air force awards and do a little research....like they forgot to check that colorado springs actually has a zoo (chimera)

          Unfortunately, all it does is open cam to more criticism than if they'd tried a little less of a hard sell.

          Sam, for her actions, and Jack too, definitely deserve some really grand medals and honors...both of which, however, seem to be forgotten
          Isn't there somebody working on the show as a consultant to fill them in on anything they need to know about the Air Force and who could have told them this?

          Although I suppose the fact that Cameron was given the Congressional Medal of Honor could support my theory that the entire least season was him fantasizing about being a hero. It does sound like daydream material.

          The writers certainly did Ben Browder a disservice with the way they wrote Cameron.

            Makes you wonder how many Medals of Honor the rest of SG-1 have gathered over the years, doesn't it? LOL There's a scene for ya. Est shot of Carter's basement, and her walls are covered in framed medals and plaques. Har.

                it does sound like day dream stuff doesn't it??

                and yeah, they're supposed to have a military advisor. but this is the same person who either allowed or was overridden on co-leaders and the mess that was lam and landry in the same line of command (nepostim is just as much of a no-no as fraternization)

                      And I'm glad you did change your mind about Sam. Personally, I think that if Amanda Tapping and Claudia Black can get some good solid screen time together (that doesn't end up on the cutting room floor), it'd be a real bonus to the show. What I'm hoping doesn't happen is that they end up focussing on the stereotypical 'sexual' elements of (either actress) just to bolster their "male demographic" ratings. Even as a Sam/Jack shipper, I'd still really prefer not to see SG-1 turn into a soap opera. And I'm none too sure about the whole:

                      ...angle they intend to go in. But I suppose we'll see how that plays out.

                      mg
                      And as long as they don't go the 'cat fight' angle with Sam and Vala that I've suffered, on and off, on my other favorite show for years (Until those actresses went to the writers and producers and told them to knock that nonsense off.) I would be so thrilled to see some scenes between the two of them. I'd love to see something akin to Death Knell, with Sam and Vala stuck, injured, on some planet and having to rely on one another to survive. AT and CB would rock an episode like that.

                      But I'm with you on

                        or like in NCIS, when tony put a medal of gibbs' in a locked box in a drawer....with about a dozen more

                        in reality, sam really needs some more fruit salad on her dress blues. she's certainly deserved it. Unless, of course, like command, medals are something only the boys get
