Did You Know?


Mulder tells the Captain that the world in 1998 is at peace. He says that there's a little trouble at the White House, but that it will "blow over, so to speak." Mulder is referencing the Monica Lewinsky scandal. See more »


When Mulder has stolen the parallel Spender's uniform, an SS Untersturmfuehrer's (junior lieutenant's) one, and is trying to sneak away, a lower rank German soldier (probably a petty officer) asks him if he found something. He uses the informal pronoun "du", inconceivable by a subaltern especially in Nazi army, instead of formal "Sie". Instead of "Hast du was gefunden?", he should have said "Haben Sie was gefunden?". 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 See 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.
