Don't fall asleep while watching this episode!
30 August 2007 | by Sanpaco13See all my reviews

I need to write this down once and for all so I don't have to rewatch this and try and remember my thoughts on the episode. I really like this episode. I will start by saying that I have actually never really seen this episode from beginning to end before without falling asleep. I always fall asleep during both of Doggett's dream sequences and then I get startled awake when he does. At first I would rewind so I could watch what I missed but I would always fall asleep again. So finally as I watched this again recently and the same thing happened, I decided the next day that I would watch just the dream scenes so I could see them unsegmented. Turns out I have never seen the part with Dogget with the ax in Scully's room and the strobing blue light. Wow what an awesome creepy scene! If only for that dream this episode deserves a high rating. I also enjoy the fact that this is probably the first one where the main actors are not either Mulder or Scully. Doggett and Skinner are now the main agents and they do a great job of not seeming out of place. I feel bad that Doggett got such a bad rap from fans because he does a very good job on the show. I give this episode a 9 out of 10.
