The X-Files Season 11, Episode 2 Review


‘The truth is out there,’ and FBI agents Scully and Mulder seek it in this sci-fi phenomenon about their quest to explain the seemingly unexplainable. Their strange cases include UFO sightings, alien abductions and just about anything else paranormal. The tales were spooky and well-written, but the long-running cult favorite’s strength was a gallery of intriguing (when they weren’t just enigmatic) characters, and the dynamic—and intense bond—between believer Mulder and skeptic Scully.

  1. Spent the whole episode trying to figure out why it was so much different than season 10, or even the first episode of the current season. Looked it up and it was because it was written by a different person. Glen Morgan. This might be closer to the original style of the show, but I found it extremely hard to believe in. It’s cartoonish fight scenes and cheesy horn dog one-liners from mulder made it feel too corny. The evil woman at the table had such an unbelievable plot for the future I found it almost impossible to identify with or even try to believe. Like it was some episode of Scooby-Doo with the “bad guy’s” schemes being nonsensical. I’ll give it another shot next episode but anymore like that with no plot development and I’m done with it for sure. Such terrible writing and directing I was shocked. I could be alone here, but I expected a lot more lucidity in a script and directing.
    Oh and the "Chemistry" spoken of was such a drastic turn from the build up of the last season and even the previous episode i was shocked. Seemed to be a breakdown of rational character development. Was a different show.

  2. I would love to see a direct sequel to one of the stand alone episodes from the original run. My choice: "Eve." I would live to know what the Eves have been up to.

  3. Ok I'm sorry but this episode was trash. I agree I like the concept on paper, and it had a Black mirror vibe…. But being spoiled in shows like Black mirror and Mr Robot, this episode was TOO silly and technologically inaccurate/silly, without actually being a full on funny episode. And there was waaay too much exposition, not enough 'showing'. It had silly "client / server" explanations for the tech… It just had a shitty Instagram like filter effect over the Loan Gunman when it did 'show' things. The acting was stiff… The budget is clearly incredibly low this season, and this felt like Black Mirror if it was written by an 80 year old trying to copy Black Mirror without understanding anything about technology. I was actually angry with how cringey the episode felt while I was watching it. I'll keep watching, but it's beyond obvious why Gillian Anderson wants out now. Here's to hoping they have more budget for the rest of the season and can hire some technical advisors to script supervise any more 'out there' tech. Don't get me wrong I don't mind if it's silly, but if they wanna go that route they need to lean into it fully and be FUNNY silly, not just throw around some totally bogus tech buzzwords to try and sound relevant and 'techy' to explain stuff

  4. The idea that caught my attention was that the X files themselves were kind of privatized. That private corporations bought access to them because they were interested in things like "telepathy" or "remote viewing." What would an organization such as Blackwater do with such information. What would a CEO think about Tooms or the flukeman.

    By the way: did any one else catch the name of the villain? Erika Price. As in Erik Prince.

  5. Can someone tell me if it's safe to watch this episode? I couldn't make it through episode 1, it was so abjectly torturous. That one seemed like a feature-length trailer to me that never slowed down for a sec and appeared to be written by a 10 year old with ADHD on Red Bull. Is this one any better?

  6. Alright, I am seriously over all the Black Mirror references in every review I read or see. This is not the first time XF has done this, and babe, they were doing it before Black Mirror. However, I get that it was not in the context of where technology is today.
