        Hi all

        For anyone looking for source shots & screen caps, I've been capping the hell outta the HD eps I'd recorded on my Hard drive. I haven't uploaded them all yet, but I will be doing so over the next little while.

        Anyhoo, go grab and enjoy if you feel the urge.

                I see what you mean about the skin though. It really does look perfect. *sigh* I wish I could just photoshop my face in RL.
                oh lord yes, and while you're at it, wanna shave about 10-15 pounds off my tummy and hips????

                  Not many sites have avatars of this size so I made my own:

                      I found this ep better than the preceding five, but, still, not up to my standard of ‘good’ – just ‘okay’.

                      I liked Amanda very much, and I thought she looked incredible in her class A's and in that black mission uniform. The dark colors really frame her fair coloring and make her eyes stand out. If for that reason alone, maybe they should keep the black mission uniforms.

                      Ye spoilerish (and pessimistic ) thoughts:
                      Spoiler:
                      Amanda was very good with what she was given to work with: that huge smile in the doorway of Landry’s office could have rendered entire stars obsolete as light sources; oddly enough, I liked the scene where Vala was the only one who sensed Sam’s misgivings on the use of the bomb (though Vala did indeed beat sorta-SG-1 at SG-1’s own game, coming up with out of the box solutions to out of the box-shipping-crate-and-even-the-warehouse problems) – it made me think that the end of the ep would have impressed me far more if Colonel Carter and Vala had both gone off to sabotage the super-sized Gate, with only Sam making it back (maybe the teltak only had enough power left to send one person-worth of matter stream at a time) after, perhaps, having sent Vala on before her, if nothing else it would have given an opportunity for an ‘it’s hard to realize how good it is to have you here to help by nearly losing you’ moment, since we weren’t given a ‘good to see you’ moment , and it would have allayed my worries about Sam being dumbassified for this season which have been raised by Daniel’s and Teal’c’s apparent loss of memory, experience, and wisdom in the preceding eps; it was wonderful to hear a bit of technospeak again, and, to see the other military characters acting just a bit more like professional military officers in the same ep was a nice plus – Sam came across as quite the senior officer (which she makes a habit of doing) on TDY, and Mitchell and Landry finally sounded a little more like officers and a little less like amateurs who just happened to be in their respective positions when things hit the fan.

                      I won’t be liking this ep for its plot, in terms of internal consistency with the Stargate universe to date, or in terms of logical structure. Some of the writing decisions were inexplicable – they had to have Colonel Carter go along because she’d made the Mark IX, despite her misgivings over the proposed use of the weapon, but, despite having to have her there, and ordering her from her new command to go along through the Gate to meet the Prometheus with the bomb, not a hint of why she needed to go on the mission appears thereafter: she doesn’t have to set up, maintain, arm, configure, or whatever the bomb before they get to the planet; she doesn’t even need to go along to the planet with the bomb, despite the Mark IX’s ‘touchy’ fuse, in case something goes wrong with the device? Er, excuse me, but, that doesn’t make a whiff of sense. Should I perhaps be assuming that the Prometheus has only 4 spacesuits available? If they needed Sam to arm the bomb in flight, there was plenty of opportunity to toss in a line of dialogue to that effect. If she didn’t have to arm the device for them, or do something else technical/mechanical/theoretical with it, why was she there (Okay, I know why she’s there from the viewpoint of the ‘real’ world, but, what about from within the Stargate universe) – surely she’s not the only one on the planet who can explain the bomb’s remote control, heck, she probably wrote a manual and a user’s guide for that remote control (and just why would anyone leave a bomb that answers to a remote control in a force field with a guy whose cohort has already demonstrated the ability to exert physical control of objects at a distance, applying force and influencing cellular function, at least, when it doesn’t take a genius to wonder if ‘hey, if he can cure diseases, fix burns, pin people to walls, and remotely operate ring transporters, shouldn’t someone be worried about him tinkering with the innards of the bomb, or its fuses, or its control circuits, or its remote control in the same way he cures diseases, fixes burns, pins people to walls, and remotely operates ring transporters, and therefore he might just disarm or otherwise bollux the bomb, even when we tell him he can’t, since Priors don’t really seem to listen to our instructions???), or the only person who could sit at the console on the Prometheus and explain what the force field was visibly doing? Apparently they didn’t need Sam to arm/engineer/work with the bomb, and the script didn’t give her a chance to disarm the bomb, disassemble, maintain, reconfigure, or repurpose the bomb, so why did she need to go with the bomb on the mission, at all? So Jack could pull off a practical phone joke on Landry? I did love that sort of ‘oh, god, he’s at it again’ look that Sam had on her face as she continued to stand there while Jack gave Landry a hard time, but still… And that whole ‘force field powered by external energy impacting it – ooh, they’re keeping something in, not us out, I wonder why’ thing was, for me at least, a scif-fi cliché, and obvious as a watermelon in a bowl of eggs, as was Vala’s subsequent solution to the super-sized Gate. I found myself thinking that season 7 or earlier Sam would have cottoned on before the Mark IX ever blew, and if the Jaffa hadn’t been there to interfere, found a way to starve the field of energy before it enveloped the planet (with them there and interfering – hopefully, she’d have found a way to give Gerak something to think about, at least he may be doing things according to the traditions of Jaffa culture, but he’s coming across as a complete jerk to other cultures ).


                      So, it seemed to me that Sam isn’t as dumbed down / diminished as I’ve found Daniel and Teal’c to be this season, which was a distinct relief to me, and seeing her again was wonderful, but with the real season just now beginning, at least for me , I can’t say I think it got off to bang-up start.

                      And now I'll just go do my Eeyore impression elsewhere.
                      Excellent critique of Beachhead, and I too found it a tad disappointing, but over all, I was pleased with the final result. Sam is back and Vala was finally allowed to show that she is more than a tight body in an even tighter clothes. Sam did not take center stage, which would have made it unrealistic for me and while she remains the team's "brains", I felt less of that in this episode. I found that refreshing and am looking forward now, to the rest of the season.

                      I haven't been online since Beachhead aired, so if I'm beating a dead horse, forgive me, but what do you all think of Sam's hair???? Be honest now!
