    Spoiler:
    The standing set from IGTBK has been added on too. It currently is about 3x's larger than it was for this episode. In the pictures below the one with Jack, Sam and Maybourne were they are standing I noticed what loked like it would be a ring transporter - I asked Martin Gero about it and he said "You'll have to wait until the new episode come out for an answer - just wait and see it will be cool" - We then walked up the stairs and as I went by the opening were the burnt orange/brown flag is hanging I noticed a drawing on the ledge so I stopped to take a look - well sure enough it was a drawing of ringing transporter in the courtyard of the set below. One of the things that is really interesting is that this whole set is fake rock - I know it looks real on TV but it looks really good until you get right up to it and touch it or see a small area were it has been damaged.



    Thanks, tsax, it's always fun to hear about first-hand experiences ... quite a few of the Samandans have already been to cons and/or had photos taken with the cast and/or time spent with them. For those of us who have not or cannot get to Vancouver, thanks for sharing your stories and pics.

I asked her what that was and she said you probably don't know it but it's called Stargate SG-1. At which point I told her about going to the Vancouver Con a few weeks ago and how much I loved Stargate. She talked about how she would love to meet AT because she thinks she has great hair and said that it is always so perfect in the show. Being one who usually dislikes going to get a hair cut today was a good day.

      Since I was home early enough to see Stargate tonight how about a couple pics from tonights episode.


      Hey, as Sky would say, we Samandans are just s-p-r-e-a-d-i-n-g the Sam love around. Never know where you'll find a fellow fan!

        Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye ... if there's anyone about to hear ... methinks I am a voice crying in the wilderness this morning ... but I must post this message as it will become my 800th post ... most of which have been to this thread alone.

        Yes, I confess to being an isolationist; however, my heart belongs to Samanda.

        Heaven knows, I've tried to broaden my horizons, but have not really seen many welcoming threads where the posters do not take themselves too seriously. My Piscean nature gravitates to peace and calm and is easily disturbed by the negative vibrations felt elsewhere, and, thus, I have made Samanda my royal home.

        With deep gratitude and respect to all my fellow citizens who have made my days here a truly pleasurable experience, filled with new Sam knowledge and lively exchanges! It is certainly never boring.

        Warmly, Jester

          being herself and she always seems so happy with a big smile.
          She's definitely someone who enjoys giving hugs as well. (-Kat)

          This video is not really a Sam video and it is extremely S/J suggestive, but if you can manage to deal with the idea of S/J together for five minutes, it's really quite amusing.

            Since I was home early enough to see Stargate tonight how about a couple pics from tonights episode.

            CARTER: Maybourne, what the hell is going on here?
            (anyone else notice how similiar this scene was played out to the one in Foothold)

            You know, I've watched this episode like five or six times now and every time I watch it I like it a little bit more. I really love how they wrote Sam in this episode: strong, confident, and snarky.

            Unless the writers totally do a number on us and Sam in season nine, by turning Cameron's character into a Jack-wannabe, I really think Sam/AT would do a wonderful job making up some of RDA's lost humour by adding a bit of Jackisms to Sam's character. We all know Sam can use a bit more humor in her life. I also like the idea that with Sam in charge( and even if she isn't ) we don't have to hear her 'Yes, sir'ing so much anymore seeing as she and Mitchell are equals. I think as Sam matures and becomes more comfortable in her own skin and position we'll see a much more laid-back Sam shine through (which is one of the reasons I enjoy this episode because we are starting to see this in Sam).

            Normally she buries most of her irritations for people, but McKay and Maybourne both have a wonderful talent of making Sam's true feelings come to the surface. Throughout the entire episode, up until the very last scene, you can totally see Sam's distrust and dislike for Maybourne through her sarcastic tone and facial expressions.

            MAYBOURNE: I enjoy long walks.
            CARTER: Right! Long walks, rainy nights, and candlelit dinners. Why are we here, Maybourne?

            I also liked how Sam was allowed to tease both Daniel and Jack a bit.

            CARTER: Well, I’m guessing it must manifest some sort of energy field that encompasses the entire ship, allowing the traveller to literally fly through time.
            DANIEL: I wonder ... (He reaches out to touch the device but Sam stops him.)
            CARTER: Ah! Let’s not touch anything just yet. I’m kinda fond of this era.

            O’NEILL: Nice! Woo-hoo! (He sits down in the pilot’s seat and looks at the control panel.) You’re gonna have to help me out here, Carter. Got any quarters?
            CARTER: Unfortunately I can’t help you with this one, sir, you’re on your own.
            O’NEILL: Fine! How do we know we’re not gonna end up back at the Alamo?
            CARTER: Um, well, for one thing, that was on Earth – but more importantly I’ve separated the time device from the control circuits ... I think.

            Here's to a more laid-back, witty, snarky, brilliant, bad-ass, butt-kickin Sam in season 9!!!

A scene where Teal'c's barriers break down a bit and he opens himself to Sam would show great depth to their friendship and the high level of respect and trust that he has in her - both as a comrade -and as a friend.
                Absolutely! Maybe CJ could even write it--he has done a good job with the Teal'c episodes he's written so far. I like how you put it above.

                    Daniel: Sam will you be watching "Revenge of the Sith"?
                    Sam: Oh wouldn't you like to know.

                    Sam: Jack did you eat the last doughnut?
                    Jack: duh

                      Oh there we go...we need to write to CJ and beg him to pen a nice, meaty story for Teal'c and Sam. Both AT and CJ are extremely funny and they have such a great onscreen chemistry together. I think he could write a really touching story that would allow their friendship to deepen as well as give them a few humorous moments together.

                      Who would like to volunteer???

                        Now that's a cute one and really seems to fit the picture! But, if they're taking dancing lessons, I want them to be learning the tango and dressing for the part.

                          Hmm, has anyone ever watched the television show called 'The Newsroom'?
                          I think it's a Canadian sitcom, not positive though. According to AT's official website Amanda did a guest spot on this show in 1996. I did a search for AT via my PVR today and it shows her as a guest on tonight's episode of 'The Newsroom' as well as next week's episode. Both episodes show the original airdates, at least here in the states, as 2005( although TvTome shows it as Feb 2004). I have both episodes set to record, but thought I'd ask if anyone else had ever seen the show before.

                          Just curious,
                          Kat

                            Jack: Carter! Has Daniel started giving you neck rubs that he used to save for Doc Fraiser?
                            Carter: Um, yes sir.

                            **Okay this was inspired by Teryl's story about how Michael would help get rid of headaches when she would get them on set when thy were film by rubing the back of the neck.

                              Great post, Kat! No, I never noticed the parallel with the "what the hell are you doing ...?" but, yes, it does seem to be there.

                              I'm all for her coming into her own and being more assertive and snarky on occasion. I think it's time Sam developed a bit of armor around her to balance out the vulnerabilities and doubts we've been seeing the past two seasons. Both sides of her character are important, but the focus on the softer side of Sam came with a cost, IMHO. There was a lot of Sam bashing going around and it seemed to hurt both the character's development and the actor herself.

                              So, here's to a new season and a new spirit at SGC! I wonder what this first week of being back on set was like for AT. Let's hope that she (and Olivia) are up to the task!
