2 best lines I most enjoyed:

"Make those f--kers pay"

Yes, I get the pun, but I didn't mean it in a good way. Maybe I should have used the word "campy", instead. The show just seems silly to me, lately, rather than enthralling with the "evil underbelly...

This show has gotten a bit comic-bookie for my tastes. I'm really dragging watching every successive episode, now.

I almost skipped on this series altogether, but just on a whim I stayed tuned to watch the 1st episode. That is all it took to hook me just for the witty dialogue. Chloe is also VERY easy on the eyes.

The reason Ren looks neither like Leia or Han Solo is because it leaves a potential future story arc where Han Solo was bamboozled by Leia, who actually banged one of those stormtrooper clones in a...

I especially enjoyed the snapshots from earlier episodes slipped in during the intro voiceover. It was astonishing to see how young and innocent these 2 were when they started this journey. Indeed,...

I think when you really get down to it, none of this was an original idea from Carter (even down to season 1). It was just Carter adapting general ufo mythology into a tv series (which turned out...

Let's be frank...the real purpose of this X-Files reprisal was to get us to buy Fords, right? Don't you just "need" a Ford Explorer, now? :p

It was about the same level as the strange story mechanics and pacing in Ep 2-5, so it seems selective to point it out as an issue particular to Ep 6. Nowhere did I say those scenes were "done well",...

Technically, it was a MoW episode. Except this time, the monster was a global pandemic. For me, it's probably one of the most chilling and unnerving topics one can pick, as far as how easily it can...

If that doesn't raise the hairs on an X-Files fan, nothing will! ;)

C'mon...being a critic has got to be the lowest rung on the ladder as far as creative process. No way anybody should be in that profession and declaring relative "smartness".

That continues to be a mystery to me. The first episode was *exactly* what I expect out of an X-files episode. So I suspect "something is up", as far as what would compel a reviewer to make a bad...
