Fox Mulder Is Back
22 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having watched the increasingly over-convoluted mythology episodes drag the series down in the last two seasons my first reaction to watching X Files DeadAlive for the first time was "I can't remember the last time the conspiracy was so engaging" it's true that the episode is more watchable than most of the previous two years rubbish that has been churned out however there are some problems. The episode has all the ingredients of classic X Files all the big guns are back Skinner, Mulder, Krycek and the episode coasts along nicely unravelling each plot point as it goes until we get to the return of Fox Mulder, who dies after an alien abduction, is buried (no autopsy is performed despite the weird way he is found dead) dug up and inexplicably brought back to life. It was as though the writers were saying "here's proof we have lost our minds". DeadAlive does however feature some very strong performances (Anderson, Patrick) and viewers will get a kick out of seeing Krycek make every character he comes into contact with squirm. Throw in a nice car/fight sequence and DeadAlive is a worthy addition to your X Files collection even if it is just to hear Mulder's legendary first words upon coming back to life.
