Samantha “Sam” Carter is an astrophysicist and USAF captain. Played by Amanda Tapping in a regular role in seasons 1–10, Carter joins SG-1 under the command of Col. O’Neill in season 1.
In one episode, she becomes a computer. In another, she lectures to USAF academy students brilliantly. In a third episode, she figures out how to reverse time.
And so much more!
As a character, I love how she’s both tough, sweet, a good person, and brilliant.
ABOUT STARGATE TV SHOW: SG-1
I love all the characters of SG-1, but especially love the character of Sam Carter.
I’d watched this show years ago, but had forgotten how much Sam was kickass, smart, brilliant really, and had a good heart.
SG-1 ran for 10 years, from 1997-2007. I’m currently binge-watching it on Amazon Prime.
STARGATE THE MOVIE
From IMDB: An interstellar teleportation device, found in Egypt, leads to a planet with humans resembling ancient Egyptians who worship the god Ra.
You can watch it on Amazon Prime. I really enjoyed re-watching it recently.
