RDA offers first peek at 48 Hours scene
Richard Dean Anderson's October 12 appearance on the Vicki Garbereau Show in Canada provided fans with the first look at the upcoming Season Five episode, "48 Hours." During the actor's interview, two clips were shown: one from the already aired season premiere, "Enemies," and a 10-second clip from what appears to be "48 Hours."
MAYBOURNE: "Come on, would I have come back here like this if I had done it?"
O'NEILL: (still angry) "You might!"
MAYBOURNE: "I swear, Jack."
O'NEILL: "Well, then who did it?"
MAYBOURNE: "I don't know."
O'NEILL: "What DO YOU know?"

"['The Torment of Tantalus'] sort of embodied all the aspects of Stargate SG-1 that I thought would be successful," Shanks said. "I thought that was the path that we should be going down, involving that discovery of something that gives us insight into our past, that basically asked more questions than it answered."
When asked when he got his big acting break, Shanks laughed, "Still waiting for it!"
Shanks also talked about his acting roots, his young daughter, working against a blue screen for special effects shots, and more. Read the entire interview at MGM.com. (Free registration is required to view the article.)
