    Here's another question...IF the two teams went back (which I'm not sure if they did or not because of the above), then...did they disappear after the timeline was resolved? The alternates didn't go to Ancient Egypt because there was no alternate timeline because the original team didn't go...???????
    [/SPOILER]
    That's what I thought. But then again, time travel stories give me a headache.
    As for AT, I was amazed at how much she seemed like a different person. She even walked like a geek! And I especially loved
    Spoiler:
    her little cough after Jack told her how hot she was...


    Her mannerisms, her expressions - all priceless!
    Some people have said she was over the top. I agree to a certain extent, but I think that's what they were aiming at. I couldn't believe one post in the episode thread saying "AT can't do subtle"--has he been *watching* for the last 8 seasons?! we've seen plently of subtle. This just wasn't the episode for it.

      The Poll for Best Carter Episode of Season 8 is up and running - don't forget to vote!
      Sky plans to take the Season 8 poll down next Friday, April 1
      ....and then we will get to vote for the all-time best Carter episode
      from amongst the top vote-getters from each season.

      For Season 8, post your Carter episode highlights and comments here in our thread and I will download and archive the comments into a Season 8 summary list similar to that which we compiled for Season 7 (at the top of the previous thread page- #181).

      Note: NearlyCircular and Tara3583 - I have already downloaded and archived your comments (NC's, Tara's) into the brand-new Season 8 file Question: NC... did I miss somehow goof-up and miss your comments from Season 7? If I did, my humblest apologies! - and send me the post # and I'll go back and edit your comments into the summary list posts.

      ------------

      Here are the GW brief Season 8 episode summaries to help jog the memory
      (if your memory is anything like mine.. )

        It will be hard to vote on Season 8--I'll have to go back and watch my tapes. A tough job, but I guess it has to be done.

          Thanks for the thought, astro, but RL interfered and I didn't post comments on season 7. Besides, you all were very eloquent in your remarks, so I just sat back and enjoyed the view.

                Season 8 Poll:
                Well, I voted for Covenant, Gemini and It's Good to be King.

                Covenant: So much Sam in this episode! She had a nice thing going with Colson and plus she got to drive a really sweet sports car (though I have no idea what model, or even make it is...) AND she got fly an F-302
                Oh and Sam's now also been on National, and probably International, TV - She's famous now!

                Gemini: Wow, Evil RepliCarter Sam. AT does *such* a good job at evil, its eerily good . The whole idea of the untapped, Dark Side of Sam is great and I wish they had of developed Sam's DarkSide a bit more (who knows, maybe in Season9. But then again, that's what FanFic is for )
                Great fun to see two Sam's on screen and playing off each other again. Plus we got to see RepliCarter kick some arse at the end

                It's Good to be King: I voted for this because it was the first time we really got to see Carter in Command. Woohoo! She got to be snarky to Maybourne (Shes in charge now, that means she gets to do it ) and She got to work on a PuddleJumper! Was slightly dissapointed how Jack came in and stole her limelight, but oh well

                And for the rest:
                New Order: Great Sam/Teal'c scene and mental Sam whumping And of course, a promotion to Lt.Col.
                Icon: Soldier Sam in command, kickin' arse as usual
                Avatar: Soldier Sam again. And she got to wield two P-90's at once Hooah!
                Endgame: Kickin more butt, this time with her hands tied behind her back lol. Go Sam!
                Reckoning: Working with Thor to fix the Replicator gun and then working with Ba'al to fix the Ancient Device. Some great Sam lines in there Oh, and RepliCarter's back too!
                Moebius: Geek!Sam made the episode

                  Hi Everyone,

                  I saw in the JM thread that Sam's reason for leaving is now purely business-related, and not personal, and that it is possible that she is in another galaxy. Interesting.

                  This seems good to me---Sam could be on an important mission that is relevant for the certain events that lead to her rejoining SG1. She could be learning about new technology that becomes important in later episodes when she returns. I think we need to have Sam's professional side be over-emphasized for awhile. I really liked how they handled issues in Threads, but I want to see Sam as her usual competent, brilliant self in season nine---throughout season nine! I think that now the pete thing is over, this will help tremendously.

                    I could not agree more - bring back the real Sam Carter. From your mouth to TPTB's ears let's hope they wake up and realize how they damaged Carter and that they use the opportunity in S9 to fix it.

                      Yes! I saw that too And now I'm looking forward to Season9 more than ever!
                      Not to dissapoint the Shippers or anything, but I'm so glad that Sam's not off on her honeymoon (or some such) for the first part of Season9. 'On Business' sounds more like our usual Sam as chocdoc said
                      'Possibly in another Galaxy'? I doubt it'll be the Pegasus Galaxy, so maybe Sam's off working with the Asgard?

                        Well I've spent the past few hours going over music videos that I've managed to collect over the past six months on my computer and I came across two that I really liked. I'm sure most of you have already seen them, but I figured they were well worth it to repost for anyone who may have not had the chance yet.

                        'The Way I Am' by Lena and Christina, The Dream Team
                        http://www.stargate-dream-team.de/thewayiamdownload.htm
                        This is a really good Sam video, showing different sides of Sam at
                        some of her best moments.
                        *Astro has this one on her site as well*

                        'Accidentally In Love' by Lena and Christina, The Dream Team
                        http://www.stargate-dream-team.de/accidentally.htm
                        This is a really sweet behind the scenes video of Stargate.
                        I really like it because we get to see so many clips of AT just
                        being herself and she always seems so happy with a big smile.
                        She's definitely someone who enjoys giving hugs as well.


                        I snagged these two from Astro's website because they are also
                        very good Sam videos.

Well, it turns out that half past midnight tonight is sometime ) I've found a better way of locating birthdays is to check out all you guys public profiles, and so far I’ve found a few birthdays. I’ve only gone back a few pages, I’ll do a more extensive list later, so anyone not on the list, I haven’t missed you out on purpose. For now, here’s a start:

I had always found the name was a bit unique, but never realized it was an actual name of a city. It's really quite beautiful as well from the pictures they have up online. I wonder if the Stargate series has helped to increase its tourism at all.

                          Anyway, I should probably end my OT comments and let everyone get back to their regularly scheduled discussions of Sam and I'll get back to my baby ponderings.

                          Sigh, my baby predictions have come and gone...and I was so sure when I woke up this morning there would be info about it because I had such a vivid dream last night that I was talking to AT about her new baby( I typically don't dream about Stargate or AT...well at least that I can remember the next morning so I found it odd that last night I did). I was so hoping it was a premonition of sorts. Oh well...hopefully soon right?

                          Kat
                          Haha, yes, to Canadians its VERY silly. Both of my parents grew up in Kelowna , I happen to be going there this Wednesday! First time I saw Menace I actually had to watch it over a few times after the initial "I heard wrong" leading to full on heart attack from laughing. Jonas, from Kelowna... *goes into fits of hysterics*

                          In addition, the other night I dreamt that she had twins... and then an 8 year old son who happened to be the younger version one of my best friends little brothers... It's weird, seems that quite a few people are dreaming of twins.. I already told you all about the dream I had of her having George and Belinda... didn't I??

                          here's a funyn thing I forgot to mention... (I think... I posted it somehwere, but can't remembers ) Guess who was right behind me in the airport just after I picked up my luggage and was about to head out? Brad Wright! I looked at hime and was like "heh, that's funny, looks like Brad" "That REALLY looks like Brad.." "$^*&$ IT IS BRAD" While my beautiful Stargate pants were packed up right beside me! I should have just booked it to the bathroom and changed... but I didnt' And he was with family, going home I would presume, and I didn't want to disturb him... so no talky for me

                            I've got one here called to the song of 'One Girl Revolution' that's not bad (hey, the tunes catchy ). I dunno where I got it from though...I think it was made by someone called Deanie ?
                            And also one to 'Pretty Woman' by Roy Orbison. The song works for it lol

                              Naw, just kidding. It would have been COMPLETELY out of character for her to be married to Jack so quickly. Perhaps at the end of Season 22 after they actually have their first date...

                              I think the whole solely on business thing makes a lot of sense...
                              Spoiler:
                              my best guess is that she's probably going to be on the Daedalus to assist the Atlantis team... which I think should be pretty neat if I'm right.

                              Man, wouldn't McKay have a fit if he saw her??? Heaven only knows how much more he carries a torch for her after so long in the Pegasus galaxy (per Letters from Pegasus). I'm curious...what if Ford didn't remove any of Rodney's declaration of love for Sam? And what if she saw it??? I get a kick just thinking about the possibility of how she'd respond to Rodney's crush on her with him not knowing she saw his whole schpiel about his feelings for her.
