  • Not original but skillfully handled

    The writers have taken a not-so-original idea and once again add the stargate touches to given us another satisfactory instalment. Not much by way of the movement in the arc, I guess we all need some rest from the Wraith sometimes!

    How does it compare to what has been done? First thing - it scores a high 10 in humour. It never ceases to amaze me how the writers come up with all those one-liners. Here the humour is integral to each character's own development. I like it a lot and look forward to it every week. I think the only episode where humour was sadly locking was "Real World" and that was one where I though was really just mediocre.

    In terms of suspense however, Star Trek Next Generation's Night Terrors is easily the better of the two. However it does not fall short by much. I especially like the scenes in the cave, Beckett's and Mckay's hellucination was very very well done. It even makes the audience wonder at what's reality. All in all, a good solid filler episode!
