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?

Worst Episode By Far
24 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never watched the X-Files early on but my friend's family loved it, so one night it came on, and I decided to give it a chance. I was naturally hesitant, because they loved low budget shows and movies that ran on the sci-fi channel that I didn't often similarly enjoy. Unfortunately the first episode I got to see was this horrible one, so after that I just cast off the X-Files as the same low budget sci-fi garbage and never really payed any attention to it. It wasn't until a few years later that I discovered that a different friend, with taste in media very similar to my own, liked the show. After once more giving the X-files a few more test-viewings of episodes re-ran on TNT I discovered it was, in fact, a really good show. This horrible episode, however, should be burned for giving me such a bad first impression of such a great show.
