So tired of seeing Skully well up with tears
17 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I'd swear i'm watching 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. What is it with Gillian having to tear up in nearly every scene?! This Messianic Baby theme is akin to Fonzy 'jumping the shark' IMO. I think the additional actors did justice to the show but it's Skully who lost her edge. I just don't get it. I guess the writers were having to scuffle since they didn't even know if there would be a season 9 or not for a long time.

Plus there is never any convincing excuse for Mulder to be in hiding. I think a better premise would have been him having infiltrated the Illuminati type group and plant a bomb at a meeting between them and the highest-ranking aliens ala Operation Valkyrie against Hitler. But have Smoking Man be the wounded surviving 'hitler'. This would be after Mulder seemingly excepts his offer to join his covert group but to be a double-agent. Now THAT would be a great excuse to go into hiding and something we could all buy into. It'd been a great scene to see a bunch of big-eyed alien generals get blasted to bits in a conference room but Smoking Man is saved by a large oak table leg! Oh well, what could have been!

(I've been watching the entire episodes on amazon prime for the first time)
