A Change Of Scenery
18 January 2007 | by (Roy, Utah) – See all my reviews

Bye, bye, Vancouver! Season six begins with production switching from dark, cold, and gloomy Vancouver to sunny and warm Los Angeles. The producers let us know immediately by having the first shot of the teaser be of the bright, hot sun. While the fitting atmosphere of Vancouver is missed, the producers do their best to keep the mood of the X-Files by keeping all the inside locations dark and shadowy and shooting plenty of night scenes. The van in the teaser of the episode has "Roush Technologies" on the side, a nice throw-back reference to Redux II from the previous season. Roush is the shady company for whom Blevins worked before he was outed. CSM's indifference to others is illustrated once more as he enters a sterilized operating room while smoking a cigarette. The man has no conscience. It's great to see the dramatic tension that Diana Fowley and Jeffrey Spender bring to the X-Files. They are characters that you love to hate, as they appear to try to thwart Mulder's work on the X-Files. A.D. Kersh's introduction I found to be eerily similar to CSM's. No dialogue, just a short cameo. Even though the scenery has changed, the writers, directors and actors are still the same, and the X-Files is as strong as ever.
