      Well it's quite easy actually.

      First, we find crappy pictures. Then, we open them up Photoshop CS and do a lot of color correcting/brightening, adding contrast...etc.

        Oh yeah, and because her smile (and hair) recently are TOTALLY against Air Force Regulations.

        Sorry, but I'm not a fan of ANY character having a "limelight." That's dangerous, crazy talk. Having all characters be equally "proactive" as a unit, however? Well, to quote a good man: "That's what I'm talkin' about."
        I forget where I read it or maybe heard it, but at one point the AF did say something about AT's hair (season 4 perhaps?). But then, I read somewhere else that the AF is more concerned with the placement of the ribbons on the uniforms. They did have a fit with someone who had long hair because it wasn't pulled back.

        I, personally, don't see an issue with the hair. It looks rather nice--a style that I would like to achieve someday. Perhaps AmberMoon could explain it better, as she used to be in the USAF.

        I'm so excited Sam's back!! Yay!! Let's (in AT's own words) up the body count! "Oy vey" here she comes!

            Thanks for posting this, Ambermoon. Any regulations about smiles in there? I did see a post to the effect that Sam's smiles were too girly-girl and violated Air Force regulations. Oh, please.

              and, iirc, many of the folks who hate the stuffins out of sam happen to also have hated the stuffins out of jonas. anyone and anything that is a threat to their preferred character, again speaking in BROAD generalizations here being that many of the sam haters prefer daniel, well anyone and anything that threatens their daniel is 'bad'
              Yup, like I said, irrational. Like there's not enough space in the living room for multiple terrific characters.

              Thanks to you all for the wonderful warm welcomes and gobs of green jello! I thought I'd share a piccy of the youngest Sam fan in our house:

                    OK, now I have read this complaint more than once recently and while I can somewhat understand her hair being against Air Force Regulations, can someone please explain this, as Jack would say, DUMBASS deal with her smile being against regulation?

                    How the hell can a smile be against regulation? I just don't get it. You mean to tell me that the USAF actually has rules about being happy and showing it? What is there a protocol that specifically states that a smile can only be so many milimeters in diameter? Or maybe her teeth are too white? This is the type of utter feces that totally irks me. If you have a legitimate complaint fine. More power to you. But I hate to tell ya, complaining about something like this is truly pathetic. It makes me wonder what sort of lives these people lead that their lives are so meaningless that they have nothing better to do than to sit and complain about someone else's smiling. Good Grief.

                    I mean this would be like saying Daniel's eyes are against regulation for being too blue, or Teal'cs arms for being too large, or Jack's scar for being too noticable.

                          What do you want to see happening for the character during season nine?

                          I just feel like the strength of this character and the joy of playing this character is the fact that she's a strong, capable, smart and powerful woman. I love the fact that there are so many sides to her -I loved the Pete side, because I loved working with David Deluise, and the whole 'Jack and Sam' thing was fun to play at times and a bit of a pain at other times. We were exploring all the different sides of her, which was great. Now we know that she's capable of love and she's capable of hurt and all these things to do with her heart and soul. We know all that, so now lets get back to what made her the character that she is! So I think it will be interesting. As long as I don't become exposition girl -because that's what I was for a while. It was like, "Okay, we need to explain what's going on and I'm going to tell you scientifically." [Laughs] I want to have a pro-active role on the team. She's back, so let her be back. Let her be pro-active. We know enough about her backstory now. It's there, it's settled. We don't have to show her breaking up with her boyfriend and making eggs in the morning. It's time to go back to the old Carter. I was starting to feel a bit that the whole angst over Jack was weakening her, and I think the fans were finding that too. We're going to go back to what SG-1 was about, with a new vigor.
                          Amen to that. I'm glad she feels what her fans feel.
                          Thanks so much, NC, for putting this up. I so love how kind everyone on this thread is, sharing all the AT/Sam info. On my student budget, the SG-1 mag is not something I would get. So it's great to still be able to read about it. Lys is being kind enough to send me the DVD extras. You Samandans rock!

With respect to Sam haters: its my humble opinion that the irrational will never win, and it takes an irrational person to hate Sam, so there. Er, I mean, with all due respect yadda etc. et al!!!
                            Congratulations on 200 posts! Welcome to the thread. OMG! Now we have 2 threads in common, including the Jonas/CN one. These are the 2 threads I keep up with. So happy to have you aboard.

My view is that the writers wrote too much angst for Sam for Jack in season 8, and it was too one-sided. Sam had too many scenes starting with Lost City and then in season 8 where she tried to start conversations with Jack and was cut off. It did make her look weak to me. NOT the fact that sam and jack have feelings for each other, but that she literally tried to talk with him several times and it seemed very uncomfortable. Or maybe I should be thinking that Jack was the one who looked weak. If the writers had written a really angsty scene for Jack in the same way to balance it out, then it might not have been so bad, but here is where the male writing staff had trouble! Now, the later scenes in threads with sam/jack revealed that jack feels deeply about her, but that was a long time coming in the season. I really don't think the character of Sam would keep coming to Jack trying to talk like she did.
                            I couldn't agree with you more. This is why I stopped being a Sam/Jack shipper. Being a woman who's been in a similar situation, I hated the way Jack was ignoring her. Sam's too strong to put up w/ such crap.

                                I feel your pain on VCR screw-ups. It happened to me, & I thought I'd lose it. That's why I'm not taking any chances and set the VCR to record both at 8pm & 11pm and will be home for the 11pm show. If someone asks me to hang out late on Fri night, I have to answer, "sorry, I have to watch TV." Ha-ha.
