    She is a woman of many nick names

    But she has a good point.... hand over the first borns, just drop them off by the yellow markers. Those without first borns to the green line please.

    Welcome to the crazy kingdom of Samanda

Because the reality is that the actors job is to do the best job they can with the script they are given. Amanda handled it gracefully in Vancouver and I'm sure she will do so again when asked next.

      Personally I'm looking forward to the con this weekend.

          IMHO, the only way to honorably and realistically clear up the leadership thing is to promote sam. She's the only one remotely eligible for the honor
          Well maybe that's exactly what's gonna happen...leadership issue resolved!!!
          One can only hope!!

            promoting mitch - unfortunately, as unrealisitic as it is, it is the more probable since it'll play into Hewo Mitch
            promoting sam - probably the 'best' and more realistic...but does not fit in wiht the almost anti-sam sentiment that the show sometimes has. it also does not promote the Hewo
            bringing in a new leader. - not likely at all. they won't bring in competitioni for mitch. anyway, we'd have heard about a new cast member
            sam quitting the military - again, i would imagine that we'd have heard about it by now since that's a pretty big spoiler
            Yes but..
            Spoiler:
            lets not forget what Amanda said about fitting into a wedding dress and the fact that RDA is back...maybe Sam and Jack finally get their shippy moment and Sam quits the military but continues to work as a civilian

            Don't shoot me..I've just gotten up and I'm still in sleepy mode!!! It's just my opinion on what could be possible anyway!!!

                Thank you!!!
                Are we the only smart people around here or what??? Why don't the PTB listen...there are some really great things being said here...well done everyone!!

                  Okay here is my personal view - you have yours and I can have mine - I have seen all the main SG-1 cast at cons minus RDA of course more than once - AT does get tired of the S/J question and I have heard her respond differently at different cons (I think her view on the subject has changed over the years), I was in Vancouver and when asked the leadership question she did deflect it with humor (she never really gave an answer), I saw Ben asked the same thing and he sighed said he just acts what is writen for him and you should ask the writers that question. There are things that Chris and Michael are so tired of they put a stop to last year and said we will not do that or answer that any more. Amanda handles things better than most of the others when questions get uncomfortable for her. You want to ask a question about leadership then please by all means go to a con and ask it is your right. It is also my right to not ask and to not have to be made to feel bad for not asking. I do know that there were plans for a SG panel at Comic Con however with the changes in MGM/Sony structure I have not gotten confirmation on the panel taking place if it does then Brad and Rob will more than likely be on the panel and I would be more than happy to ask then why the decision was made to have Mitchell lead SG-1 instead of Sam. At a con like Shore Leave wanting to show AT support that Sam should be leading in my opinion it would be better to ask a question but start off with saying something like "I think Sam should be leading SG-1 instead of Mitchell ....then ask a question.

                  Again this is just my opinion and now I'm out of here I have a 4th of July concert to go play. Have fun and play nice tonight.

They chose to do so, just as they chose not to allow the character to express any kind of discontent over losing a command that she had worked long and hard for. I cannot see how anyone could think that Sam has been treated fairly.

                    i very sincerely doubt that. IMHO if any insisting is going on, it's coming from those lovely sexist folks at scifi. The ones that believe in that the white male hewo, cleavage popping vamp and SFX are all that's needed to make a popular show

But I'd like to hear her backstory in the back booth of a pub on a ladies' night out! Coley, you can buy the first round of drinks! Astro, second. I'll pick up the rest of the tab!

                      Oh, and we can't forget to invite Teryl along. I'd love to hear the backstory she used once they handed her the swan-song script for Heroes.

                      Sorry, I had to run out of my apartment building in my pj's for a false fire alarm and just feeling a bit snarky.

                      jckfan, how can we get you to at least one Amanda con?!!
                      LOL!!! I would love to be able to join you at the pub and at the cons!!
                      Imagine a girls night out with Amanda and Teryl..what a blast!!!
                      Sorry...I'm just trying to visualise you running outside in your jammies...LOL!!!
                      For me to get to an Amanda con I would have to travel overseas and that would cost a small fortune...not gonna happen for me I'm afraid. *sobs*

                        I wonder what they thought the show was for the first 8 years, seeing as how it brought SciFi the high ratings

                            i'm sure they think that, if they just 'fix' it, it'll get stellar ratings

                            and they lack the knowledge/acceptance to admit that scifi ruins pretty much everything they get thier hands on.

                            they 'fix' it so well that the ratings fall and it dies...and then they blame anyone and everything else to avoid the fact that, if they'd just leave the shows alone and let the creators keep doing what they do best, create

                              Despite the fact that Sci Fi is the company responsible for such classics as the recently re-aired "Mansquito" --they didn't ruin the show right away. I wonder if the money guys at the network changed or got more involved as time went on. Without RDA & Greenburg's company in there & RDA's creative clout in s9, perhaps they ran amok.

                              I really think RDA was about making the show the best it could be. I loved an early interview w/him on one of the DVD extras where he said something to the effect of "we should give the audience more credit" and he didn't believe in aiming it to the "lowest common denominator."

                              On a positive note, we still have AT's great work from seasons past and I have no doubt she will bring us some great moments in S10.

                                i soooooo agree with you about rda. He always seemed to keep his eye on the ball, keep the general goal in sight, producing a quality show and, yes, don't underestimate the fans and treat them like dumb children.

                                RDA is a very intelligent man and he wanted to make an intelligent show. which he did until the day he left.

                                Amanda is also a very intelligent woman who seems to share RDA's tastes. Which i think is one reason that Sam has become such a great character. She seems to play sam with her mind on the end product. What matters is how Sam is seen over all, not just week to week
