Oh, let me clarify more: I prefer the idea that it's his body as the show implies. The mind idea is interesting in and of itself, but having Sam's physical body there makes the show more interesting. Why? Well, if it wasn't his body then Sam wouldn't have been able to father his child, for one. And episodes like "8½ Months" wouldn't be as humorous. And I really can't come up with any more reasons beyond that right now, but I guess it's more psychologically satisfying for me to know that when the first leap occurred, Sam's entire body traveled through time, not just his mind. And later in the series, the concept of mind-merging occurred anyway, so we did get the best of both worlds.
