X-Files S10 Episode 2 Mini Review
The opening scene is fantastic. Although its subject material might be somewhat dark, there is a definite Raimi -esque camp present. In other words, perfect X-Files material. When Mulder and Scully arrive they look exactly like they're supposed to. All the looks poses and dynamic in dialogue are reminiscent of exactly why I once fell in love with the series in the first place. The episode's tone has a wide range. There's tension, humour, reflection, action -and there's some stuff about William in there that's pretty heavy. Episode 1 was fine, episode 2 is great. I love it. I can recommend this episode to anyone, but to give a bit of a clearer idea, I can recommend this episode to fans of The X-Men and The Avengers: Age of Ultron especially. Parents and caretakers are also sure to have their heartstrings tugged.
