Do you know, this point never occurred to me until I read your post? And here I've been, watching some earlier episodes lately and quietly bemoaning the fact that Sam's had a tendency to become infallible over the years and wishing we could see her make more mistakes rather than have everyone expect her to pull the rabbit out of the hat and her doing so repeatedly and constantly each week? Geez. Don't even notice when I get what I want.i think it's humanised Sam in my eyes that she
can be failable and make mistakes.
Thanks for pointing this out to me! I'll watch this one with even more enjoyment now as it balances all those episodes with InfallibleCarter. (Not that I hate any of those, but a little variety is always nice )
