Beyond Disappointed
19 September 2017 | by themorriganspetSee all my reviews

I was never one of the cult who thought this was the greatest fiction on TV. The sappy tropes in this episode almost ruined the entire experience for me. If you're nostalgic for this program, don't watch this episode. Lamest climax ever. Chris Carter should've been whipped for doing this.
