"Now thats entertainment"
30 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I honestly do not understand why this episode received so many negative reviews, i felt i had to comment on this.

In the past few months i have worked my way through all seasons up to 7 so far and this episode definitely stands out to be one of the more memorable ones, please do not, i repeat not take this episode seriously, its just for laughs and a nod to game nerds.

Duchovny is on top form with his one liners and humour, and the fx for its time and budget are actually pretty good.

I have skipped a few episodes in past seasons due to poor ratings on IMDb and i very nearly done the same with this one, but trust me give it a shot, you will be hooked.
