The mag does have a good short story told from Janet’s point of view about the team in their early years.

        This part is from an interview with Carmen Argenziano

        FAMILY MATTERS

        The chemistry between Tapping and Argenziano as her screen father exudes on screen, as does the dynamic between Sam and Jacob, most evident in the emotionally charged scenes of Threads. "Amanda was amazing," says Argenziano with a sincere warmth in his voice. She worked herself up because I think she was aware, personally, that we weren't going to work together again and we had developed a wonderful professional relationship. She's such a classy lady," he states. "In the very first episode Secrets - I hadn't worked in a few months so you get in front of the camera again and you're a little nervous - I struggled with a couple of lines. Just before the take Amanda suddenly took my hand and held it for a minute. It was so soothing and so comforting and of course I nailed the next take," he adds. "I think our relationship started from that moment when I saw what a compassionate, beautiful person she is."


        <snip>

        In the episode Grace Sam's subconscious, via Jacob, guides her romantically toward Jack. Fans discovered recently her having a more involved history with fellow Tok'ra, Martouf, in Ripple Effect but Argenziano reveals he prefers Daniel for her. "Oh, I love Martouf [JR Bourne]. [But] there's a sincerity about Daniel, a well- meaningness,” he explains, “and also he’s a scientist, he doesn't have time to mess around. Jack would be a little too roguish, Peter Pan-ish. I don’t think Jack was ready to settle down. I don't know if Jack will ever be ready to settle down," he laughs. "Jack is more of a... not a 'near-do-well' but he's a... I don't want to use that word that keeps popping into my head," Argenziano admits laughing. "I simply think that Sam would have been happier with Daniel as far as being a better father and a better husband than Jack."



        The next bit is from an interview with Patrick McKenna, who played Felger, referring to the scene in Avenger 2.0 when Sam goes to Felger’s apartment. The emphasis is mine.


        You seem to have a lot of fun in your scenes with Amanda Tapping. Was that the case?

        Very much. Everybody on set loves Amanda. She's this crystal intelligent gem that they all rally around, so it's something you pay a lot of respect to. The scene where I spill the Mountain Dew all over myself, that was one where it was, "Don't get the clothes wet until you have to get them wet" [laughs]. We only had one set, it was quite late in the day, so it was one of those opportunities where, "O.K, if you're gonna do this, go big enough that it really works out well", Again, the more serious we played every moment around that, the funnier things like that became. Amanda is so wonderful that way. She doesn't know what I'm going to do, but she totally trusts that it's going to work within the scene, and the director, Martin [Wood], was that very same way. They were great because it's such a depressing little scene, it's so sad to see his little home. It's an insight into how desperately this person wants to be involved.

        When ever i saw Sam and her Dad on screen i always felt like i was watching Father and Daughter for real, such was the level of acting and the depth of feeling that Amanda and Carmen brought to the screen and i for one really miss that
        Once again so nice to hear just how much Amanda is thought of by everyone around her.(((((((Amanda)))))))

          I got audio, but no video (other than some computer graphics, but not AT on the screen)

            COME ONE, COME ALL,
            to my very first attempt at a GW Forum thread poll


            Favorite/Most Memorable Amanda Tapping acting scenes in Season 1

            You can vote for several episodes when you cast your ballot, but once you hit submit, it won't let you come back and vote again.

            If you want a reminder of what each episode was about... Season One

            And, yes, I know that I typo'd the word 'choose' so that it's missing an 'o'... it's part of the poll and I can't figure out how to fix/edit the typo

            ---------

            Many folks have recommended that we should do some 'Best AT Acting Polls', because when trying to decide which episode was the best of a season for a certain character, such as Sam, one of the issues that some of us have wrestled with is... whether to pick the episode which features the most/best AT on screen, or the episode which features the best Sam Carter scenes. Examples include Entity (which had some wonderful AT acting scenes, but she wasn't playing Sam Carter, as much as she was playing/acting an alien entity). Another example would be an episode with lots of RepliCarter, or Geek!Sam, where again, these are wonderful AT acting scenes, a wonderful look at AT acting out-of-the-regular-confines of the character of 'our' Sam Carter.

            So here's a poll for Season 1

                  lol! I haven't found it yet (still looking), but it sounds like they're taking a page outta sister network, USA's, book in the advertising department. And that's cool. I like their promos.

                      I love it when Sam winks at Jacob when they say goodbye. I can't remember which episode but it's just perfect.

                            What fathers also don't realize is that most women are attracted to men that exhibit similar qualities to their father. Now between Daniel and Jack, Jack wins hands down in that department.
