Storyline

With inside information courtesy of Deep Throat, Mulder heads off to Wisconsin where the Defense Department is in the process of reclaiming a downed UFO. He sets off on his own and finds the crash site only to be knocked out by a soldier. In the brig, he meets Max Fenig, a UFO enthusiast who was also arrested for being too close to the clean up site. Mulder, who has been working on his own, is rescued by Scully but he is clearly in big trouble and faces a professional conduct hearing. When Fenig is found dead, it is clear that there are forces within the government who will go to any length to keep the existence of alien life forms a secret. Written by garykmcd

Fallen Angel...
17 August 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Fallen Angel" is one of my big disagreements with the general consensus of the X-Files fanbase. I really don't care for this episode at all. Sure, there's some fun moments and a good supporting character in Max Fennig, but the episode as a whole is far from striking or memorable, and is actually remarkably amateurish script-wise and completely lacking in any quality characterization, and featuring very, very little good dialogue.

Like most season one mythology episodes it doesn't get to the meat of the conspiracy storyline, and is instead a superficial and repetitive UFO tale. As expected from a Gordon/Gansa script there's really more fizzle than pop here, and ultimately an episode that has very little to offer.

4/10
