Storyline

Mulder and Scully investigate strange occurrences at a volcano site where at least one scientist has died. A robotic video showed the scientist lying dead at the bottom of a crater where temperatures have reached 130 degrees Fahrenheit. They can then see a shadow cross the body. Once on the site, they find terrified survivors and what Mulder believes is an unknown silicon-based organism, the first of its kind. With different members of the team seemingly infected, Scully and Mulder quarantine the entire group until they know exactly what they are dealing with. Written by garykmcd

Rehash
6 June 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

After Scully's return where she conveniently cannot remember a thing from her abduction, in this episode we go back to the average 'monster' work.

A bad 'slasher' film, in this rehash of similar episodes Ice and Darkness Falls, the siege scenario shifts to a volcano, the explanation of paranoia shifts to hallucinative spores, but again the whole point is an encounter with a mysterious, ancient lifeform that defies reason. If you were just tuning in to the show, you may find it passable. However, knowing how it usually plays out, this is lazy, boring beyond belief.

Episodes like this are why I can never seem to bring myself to finish long TV series, we just have to drag our feet through filler after filler to get to morsels that advance the long arch.
