A great stand-alone
20 August 2009 | by MulderManiacSee all my reviews

Monday was a great, well-done episode. Yeah, yeah everyone knows they spoofed Groundhog Day and that episode of the Twilight Zone--but it still managed to be an enjoyable, light-hearted episode with a heart-stopping opening sequence for first time viewers.

This episode was interesting to watch just because of Mulder's reaction to doing basically the same thing every day. Watching his impatience grow is something to smile about because everyone can relate to reliving the same Monday over and over again. "Monday" managed to hold your attention by never repeating EXACTLY the same day but throwing in some minor changes that kept your interest.

Great storyline, great acting, lots of fun. 8/10
