Goofs

The planets and the moon are shown, at the beginning and the end, as being in a sort of triangle formation. This would never happen as the sun, moon, and all the planets orbit on the same plane (the ecliptic plane) and are always in line with each other. In addition, one of the planets mentioned as being in alignment, Uranus, cannot be seen with the naked eye. See more »

Another future stat found in an X-Files bit part
27 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hidden away in this whimsical episode was Ryan Reynolds.

He was a bit fat. Suddenly his character in Just Friends seemed even better.

While the episode itself was yet another well titled, in fact its title is an esoteric word that at first glance appears invented by Chris Carter, episode, and the plot at times seemed all too familiar, the repeated clichés were turned into great wit, and their use fantastic.

Add to the fact that Mulder and Sculley both were pulled into the teenage fervor, being short, coy and all around immature "sure, fine, whatever," and it was a great episode.
