Sam Hill (Etymology)
Sam Hill is an American English slang phrase, a euphemism or minced oath for “the devil” or “hell” personified (as in, “What in the Sam Hill is that?”). Etymologist Michael Quinion and others date the expression back to the late 1830s; they and others consider the expression to have been a simple bowdlerization, with, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, an unknown origin.

Nice review! That was Great! You did a really good job recapping that episode. There were some funny moments in that episode, and some really cool scenes, like when Victoria goes flying through that window. LOL Classic scene. That would have been good to have an episode that explained what happened the next day after the Siege. They could have called it, The Day After. I like the details you point out in this episode. I love behind the scenes information. They make the episodes really good. Thanks for posting these reviews. They are really good! Keep up the good work. You should think about doing reviews for Stargate too. 😉
