Goofs

The action in this episode takes place prior to the United States' entry into World War II; the analogue to Scully claims to be working for the Office of Srategic Services (OSS), but that agency did not come into being until 13 June 1942, about six months after the US entered the conflict. However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more »

One of the very best
22 April 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

An all-time favorite. The German was pretty bad, but I can't really see much of a flaw otherwise. Mulder's first exchange of dialogue on the ship when he thought it had crossed into the 90's was hilarious ("we're having a little trouble in the white house right now, but it'll blow over, so to speak"), as was essentially the rest of the time on the ship (though the 'puttin' tame' line was quite cringe-worthy, although I imagine on purpose).

I have no problem with the 'lack of an X-Files feel'. To me, the X-Files feel was true creativity, and an episode done so creatively and excitingly, and so brilliantly directed, is just one of the best of the series.

10/10
