Quotes

Dana Scully: Dressing up like high-tech warriors to play a futuristic version of "cowboys & indians"? What kind of moron gets his ya-yas out like that?
Fox Mulder: [points to himself]
Dana Scully: Mulder, what purpose does this game serve except to add to a culture of violence in a country that's already out of control?
Fox Mulder: Who says it adds to it?
Dana Scully: You think that taking up weapons and creating gratuitous virtual mayhem has any redeeming value whatsoever? That the testosterone frenzy that it creates stops when the game does?

The worst X-Files episode!
13 June 2010 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I bought a box of the 9 seasons of X-Files 6 months ago and I'm watching it slowly, it's my first time seeing x-files. Yesterday I saw FPS and, oh boy, was it a bad episode or what?? The worst episode so far! When X-files tries to do something tech it always fails. The previous attempt was in Kill Switch, another horrible episode.

Why X-files always fail with tech episodes? Well, the writers always don't have a clue about what they are writing! Wrong (VERY WRONG) use of terms and super sizing everything! Maybe this two episodes were good back in 2000, maybe and I'm being kindly, but they are such a failure 10 year later! The previous episode, X COPS, was one of the best episodes in the show, it's a shame that the next one, FPS, is for me until now the worst episode of the show.
