Did You Know?


Toward the end of the whole sequence with Scully in the beginning trying to find information on where Mulder is, she is running out of Fowley and Spender's office and going around the corner toward the elevator. She slips and almost falls. It's quite obvious, you can hear her slip and also see Gillian Anderson's arm shoot out to catch herself. She's quite lucky that she didn't fall because if she had, since they filmed the entire scene in real time, they would have had to start back at the very beginning of the scene and do it all over again.

Excellent episode
22 December 2006 | by PWNYCNYSee all my reviews

Normally I don't comment on individual episodes of a television series, but here I will make an exception. This episode was exceptionally good. It is apparent that the creator of this show decided to "go the extra mile" and "dig a little deeper" to present a compelling story. Here the imagination abounds as Mulder finds himself in a situation that requires making certain difficult choices. The acting is superb and the cinematography is appropriately foreboding. But what makes this particular episode most unique is the non-stop action as two groups fight over control of a ship that contains the key to victory or defeat. Although a work of science fiction, the story provides a glimpse into a period of time when peace was replaced by the sound and fury of war. This episode is excellent.
