Crazy Credits

Almost every episode ends with a fade to black and the words "Executive Producer Chris Carter." At the end of the episode "D.P.O.," a character is flipping through channels on television, and stops on one showing Carter's credit. At the end of the episode "Post-Modern Prometheus", the final shot of Mulder and Scully turns into a comic-book frame, and a hand flips the comic book shut to reveal the book end cover with Carter's credit.

Nirvana
5 July 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This is nicely aligned and has an unabashed comic-book vibe that carries it.

It is about an awkward, moody teenager who feels he's not understood: in the X-file universe, this is rendered as him being able to harness lightning to destroy stuff.

He wears a Vandals tshirt, gets drunk in his backyard with the only one who'll hang with him, a schoolmate who works in the arcade shop. All of which give off a distinct early 90s vibe that reminds me of my years.

Mulder and Scully try to understand youth.

It helps that Ribisi plays the twitchy loner so well.
