Truth and Beauty - All Ye Need Know?
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A breathtakingly aesthetic opening and tracking shot, inventive situations, the comic foibles of the principle characters, misdirection, comeuppance, and an ending which draws a connection to one of the earliest images--what is there not to like about this episode? I remember hearing that Soviet scientists after their first showing of 2001: A Space Odyssey stood up and clapped at the screen. Whenever I watch this episode as a rerun, though somewhat embarrassed, I stand up and clap as this episode concludes. Maybe it touches something mythic. Maybe it is just wonderfully and delightfully executed. For any X-File fan unfamiliar with this episode but with a love of humor, truth, and beauty, make a point to see "Three of a Kind" in Season 6, episode 20.
