...maybe Skinner has some alien DNA that lets him heal quicker than 'normal' humans...
That should have been the explanation for Cigarette Smoking Man surviving a barrage of missiles. Heck, compared to that missile barrage, Skinner’s injury is a minor scratch.
Jeffrey Spender seems to have healed up remarkably well too.
The upcoming episode is hilarious and creepy at the same time, minimal dialog.
Don't forget to tip and teach your children well...
You’ve seen it?
I have but can't comment on it other then what i just wrote, i think it's a terrific EP.
Scully is bringing back the old-school, shoulder length Scully hairdo in tonight’s episode.
Plus the Lady Di shy eyes ?
Great episode! The minimal dialog was a very interesting touch. The episode is a pretty clear comment on the ways in which technology separates us from one another. We see Mulder and Scully sitting in the diner, not exchanging a word. We don't hear either of them speak until they are separated, each speaking for the first time to a device. Contrary to the initial lack of dialog between the two characters, they become pretty vocal when they separated and have to deal with technology run amok.
I've thoroughly enjoyed most of this season, with the notable exception of the first episode.
I agree 90%. The only difference is that I think that the first episode successfully retconned last season as well as it could have and was enjoyable. Not as good as the mytharc episodes from seasons 2-6 but still entertaining enough for me.
Last night's episode was great. I thought it was funny that the whole time all the AI wanted to be "liked" and tipped, having learned from the worst of human social media interactions.
Though the episode had little dialogue, the best line was;
Milder: "At least you got your personal devices back."
Scully: "Not all of them."
Particularly the part where they dug into the specifics of this X-file was enlightening. Are no fly zones for sale ?
When was this filmed ? The Harry Reed/Ufo/NYT article was mentioned. This was just a few weeks ago.
Reminded me of this:
The tech crap episode was the best of the past two new seasons. Finally a great one.
I thought tonight's episode was really creepy as well as a nice commentary on the current social media climate. I'm sure some could argue that it was Hollywood sticking up for itself, or excuse some of its poor behavior too.
Those black eyed telly tubby things were beyond evil looking.
It's a shame the season it about to end because the last few episodes have been just like the X-Files of old.
Yup another good episode.
Last night's episode was the first one that truly felt like one of the classic episodes.
Yes it was. Lots of fun and very creepy. When I saw Jason Gray-Stanford playing a cop I half expected Monk to show up to solve the case. My wife said "Hey, there's Disher!"
I liked the reference to The Birds when Mulder follows one of the tiny drones with his eyes and sees there’s dozens of them in his house!
Apparently Barbara Hershey has designs on wiping out the population of the Earth or something but the real focus has been on Mulder & Scully. The writers and the actors have been doing a very honorable job of giving us our heroes at their best.
