Quotes

Mulder: Maybe out past where the imagination ends our true natures lie, waiting to be confronted on their own terms. Born in anarchy with an unquenchable bloodthirst we shudder to think what might rise up from the darkness.

"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.
