Son of a shapeshifter!
19 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A shapeshifting supersoldier from another dimension tries to stop Olivia from attending an important meeting. He injures her but does not kill her, and is then ordered to go back and finish her before being allowed to return home. The basic premise of this season opener is derived from that cult classic, THE HIDDEN, as the soldier keeps changing physical identities with various unsuspecting people. This show tries so hard to be the new X-FILES, but the simplistic writing and amateur acting simply do not support this lofty ambition. The closing scene of this episode amply demonstrates this. But you must watch and judge for yourself.
