Trivia

Mulder appears, to some extent, to be mimicking 'The Cigarette-Smoking Man'. In the first place, his hair is in the same style as that character's. Secondly, his usual coat is replaced with a waterproof affair, similar to CSM's. Lastly, there is a brief shot of Mulder smoking a cigarette. See more »

Goofs

The coroner tries to explain to Agent Dales how Dales' partner might have died. He says they will have to wait for the TOXOLOGY REPORT. Toxology is the study of archery. He should have said, "TOXICOLOGY REPORT" See more »

Xenotransplantation. Say that 5 times fast.
30 November 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

First off, Travelers is one of two episodes that I've fallen asleep watching the first time through. The teaser started off well, especially with the man muttering Mulder at the end. You don't know whether he means Fox or his father, William. Unfortunately, from there, it went downhill. Mulder kept on wiping his hair away from his eyes. That bugged me too much. Was he just trying to make sure his wedding band was seen? I tried real hard to like it more, but the show just wasn't terribly interesting. They used the cliché of a soft camera filter to show the past. I guess it's either that or black and white. I think I like Unusual Suspects because even though it's Scully-free and Mulder-lite, I still get my fill of calories with the Lone Gunmen. I don't have an invested interest in Arthur Dales and a young William Mulder making a cameo. Darren McGavin was o.k., but I much prefer him as the dad in "A Christmas Story". I did like the term "xenotransplantation" though. Cool word. The episode wasn't "bad" though. It was well acted and all. It's just mildly interesting.
