        ok, let's say that sam has a 'guilty pleasure' tv show. something that she tapes and watches but wouldn't necessarily like to admit that she tapes and watches. (kinda like the Simpsons for Jack)

        what show would be sam's 'guilty pleasure'?

        Well if you listen to the audio commentary for 'Ascension' (the scene where Sam and Jack are talking in her study, after she's called in the code 3 team), apparently Sam has some very, very naughty videos on her shelf.... In fact so naughty that they had to blank out the cases in post-production because they wern't sutiable to be shown. And this was on Showtime!

          Just looking through those pictures...

          How many computers does Sam Carter have in her house?!?!?!
          Maybe her guilty pleasure is getting over some of her 'geek' friends and playing computer games all weekend long!

            LOL

            yep. missed it when they taped it and had to 'fix' it in post

            what i thought was so funny is sam's house.

            ok, when we first heard that we were going to see her house, i imagined that it'd be somewhere kinda impersonal. maybe a loft, big appt. largely because sam is so rarely home that i just coudn't see her
            a) taking care of a house and all its maintenance
            b) sam doesn't seem to be the clutter type

            then they show the eps and she has a house, complete with yard that has to be taken care of and this house that's so full of clutter that it seems odd

            now, even amanda said in the commentary that they got the house (it's up in north vancouver, the real house. some friends and i found it once) and then amanda brough in some of her own stuff, and stuff that the fans have sent to her and scattered it around, making it even more cluttered

            many of those pictures you see are real family pics of amanda's (even one of carmen and his own step(?) daughter, who just happens to have blonde hair and stood in for sam, along with some various gifts....including two quilts that are on the back of her couch.

            the quilts were make by Becky Preen (the girl who wrote Road from Nadir)
            she sent them to amanda who was so impressed that she had the props folks use them in the eps


            anyway, the point of my ramble is that, as cute as sam's house is, it just doesn't seem samish

              You should turn that into a short story and upload it at GateWorld and Heliopolis...

                  I agree, but I seem to remember Amanda saying somewhere that she thought of the house as her Dad's? That's why it had all that stuff in there, it wasn't actually Sam's but Jacob's. Or maybe I read that in a fanfic somewhere...

                      That was in the audio commentary for the ep... I remember because I was thinking that the only problem with that is that Jacob didn't live in Colorado Springs when the character was introduced. He was talking about or did just get an apartment or something there in Tokra Pt1.

                      Also I thought the pr0n collection thing in the book case was hilarious. I think Sam having a decent collection is kinda cool.... given her social life and unending tension with members of the team (for me that means Jack - but each to their own) the girl must know how to self serve..

                          no, it was in the commentary. amanda said that's how she rationalized the cluttery house, that it was jacob's and sam inherited it

                            RE Sam's house... I really liked it. I liked the homey feel... the stuff all over (clutter if you will)... it made sense to me that someone who's not home very often would have stuff all over... she just doesn't have time to get rid of stuff that collects. And when I found out (later) that AT had sprinkled stuff from the fans into the scene - it just made it all that more special. As for it fitting Sam's character - I was fine with it - and I liked it. I don't expect her to be her military persona when she's offduty... I like that she enjoys dressing feminine while off duty... and that the Captain/Major/Colonel persona doesn't completely permeate her personal life.

                            I like Sam as a military officer and I hope we don't lose that, but I also like seeing that she isn't *just* that military officer.

                            I do agree, however, that I don't see how she'd have time to take care of all those plants when she goes offworld for days and weeks at a time.... Didn't AT say that 'this woman has one dead basil plant at home?' - much more appropriate. So... maybe she has to pay a gardenining service? My mom pays a guy to come around every couple of weeks and take care of things for her.

                            So... I like Sam's house... and I like Sam in feminine civilian clothes (even the sexy ones)... I like seeing that there's more to Sam that just the military officer and scientist. I also like references to her riding her motorcycle... or flying planes...

                            *And* I also like references to the domestic things that she doesn't do "I can't spin, weave or dye" (her line went something like that in Emancipation).... In a future episode, I'd like to see or hear a reference to Sam's lack of culinary prowess in the kitchen... something maybe with Cassie... she could banish Sam from the kitchen while taking care of dinner preparations or such... or maybe Sam volunteers to fix dinner and Cassie looks horrified and then tries to hide her reaction as she fumbles for an appropriate way to get Sam to order for a pizza...

                              yeah, jacob obviously lived out of town, seeing as how sam was suprirsed that hammy had invited him. and most terminally i ll folks don't go around buying houses. human nature is that people tend to divest rather than in vest when the grim reaper is lurking in the eaves

                                I don't quite remember who asked for this, my apologies. However, I do remember someone asking for a hug collage; so I went searching for photos with Sam hugging or being hugged and here is what I came up with. I did find two photos, one with her hugging her brother and one where she is hugging the girl goodbye in 1969(can't remember her name), but they didn't seem to fit well so I decided not to use them. I'm also sure there are more photos of Sam hugging her dad, but I didn't want it to be just a Sam and Dad collage. I'll save that for the next one.
