Trivia

Empedocles was a Greek pre-Socratic philosopher and a citizen of Agrigentum, a Greek city in Sicily. Empedocles' philosophy is best known for being the originator of the cosmogonic theory of the four Classical elements. According to legend, in order to become a god, Empedocles threw himself into a volcano in Mount Etna. As such, Empedocles is often associated with fire. See more »

Another Season Eight Disappointment
7 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The early seasons of the X-Files would always be hard to follow. But there were some real highlights across the years with several episodes per season demonstrating the writers' imaginations had not entirely abandoned them. Season Eight remained short on ideas though and the pace of programmes slowed to a point where even committed fans might have a hard time maintaining interest. I applaud the guy who found so much to like in his review. I found myself inwardly grumbling that the script writer wasn't even trying while the plot was so thin it barely existed. Characters had to explain themselves not because it was complicated but because it defied belief on the grounds of zero credibility. That's it guys? Evil is contagious? Wow..

Agent Reyes lifts things, and its true, the presence of Mulder, Scully and Dogget together is a bonus but Scully is 17 months pregnant, puffing her cheeks and making eyes at Mulder while the poor sop grins and spouts short lines of insight and Dogget flails about from one angry extreme to the other. Chris Carter must have been a little bit embarrassed to sign his name to this one.
