And IMO, there was never an episode of Stargate (SG-1 or Atlantis) that would fall into this category. smile.gif
There are a number of episodes that deal with false realities or altered perceptions, 'The Gamekeeper', 'Out of Mind', 'Into the Fire', 'Beneath the Surface', 'The Fifth man', 'Grace', 'New Order' and 'Avatar'.

No... I mean the boring category, not the altered perception category. laugh.gif

I don't agree... Even if this episode was not great, it was certainly not monotonous. And IMO, there was never an episode of Stargate (SG-1 or Atlantis) that would fall into this category. smile.gif

And for the record, it's asleep, not insleep. laugh.gif

laugh.gif I knew what you meant!

As far as insleep or asleep....'A' means in latin 'without' or 'abscent' or 'none'....at least that is what I get out of it in medical terms. This being so, I wonder why we english say 'asleep' when we mean that the person is sleeping. . To me, 'asleep' means 'without sleep'. blink.gif

That is quite interesting. It's like when you say asymmetrical opposite to symmetrical. And the Romanian form of the word is similar: "dormi" - "adormi". The origin of the a in front of sleep in English is in the 12th century. The original form was "on sleep"... In time, people talked faster and faster, and the "on" soon became a "uh", thus the form you know today: asleep. So, not weird... Now I have to know why we have the same weird non-sleeping form in Romanian. whistling.gif

EDIT: Ah, here it is... The original latin word was addormire, so the front part of of the word is not a- like it looks, is ad-, that means with... So, adormi means with sleep, which is quite correct. 1.gif
