Nothing Important Happened Today II is more of the same from the season premiere. It's only the third time that a sequel episode has the same name as the first part episode without any appellations.

The old shaky camera technique is used at the beginning of the episode. I've never cared much for that style. It makes me dizzy. Are they trying to get across the point that someone is standing there with a hand-held camera? Of course not. Then why use it? We see with Reyes with reading glasses for the first time in this episode. She joins Mulder, Scully, and Skinner as a main character who needs reading glasses. It looks like Doggett is the only main character with perfect vision.

It's obvious in this episode why the agents usually wear subdued colors. Reyes wears a red top in this episode and it stands out. I usually don't notice things like that.

I don't have a lot to say on this episode other than it bugs me to see Kersh (apparently) being nice and slipping Doggett the obituary. It's all very confusing to me and I just don't buy Kersh's motives. How much does he know? How deep is he? The X-Files is supposed to be mysterious and not answer all questions, but Kersh and the Super Soldier storyline are just too convoluted and they hurt the show more than they help it. The reason why I still like Nothing Important Happened Today II is that it is fun to watch and has good action. And there you have it.
