Let me get this off my chest, alright here goes. Tonight's episode was the funniest thing I've watched in quite sometime. And I've been watching a plethora of Superhero related TV Shows, which had funny moments and all but for the most part were quite brutal and serious. Why so seriouss? Sorry I couldn't help myself.
Moreover, this was on par with the type of material you come to expect from The X-Files monster of the week and it was brilliantly written, penned and directed by Darin Morgan, if you are not familiar with his work outside of this episode, he had some say in the TV Series, Fringe (2008), and Millennium (1996). If you have not picked up on it by now, I am a die hard X-Files fanboy and TV doesn't get better than this.
Another highlight to the episode tonight was the Mulder adapting to modern life and then realizing that perhaps his life's work was all for naught, stating that all the unexplained phenomena he believed it has been explained and thus, his pursuit was the pointless meandering of a mad man -a man at his crossroads aka Mid-life crisis, but Scully was there to back him up and if not boost his fragile ego a tad. Though this led her to having little to say or do as Mulder continued in a rant and stating to which you will say this retort, which ended with Scully saying no I don't believe you. I love how well these two play off each other and their chemistry is genuine and real, so much so you could reach out and handle it in your own two hands.
In closing, I wanted to say this; he just wanted to stop being a filthy human and return to his natural state, poor human-sized horny lizard guy, uh thingy. Good night guys, and The Truth is Still Out There!
