Did You Know?


The comedian Kumail Nanjiani (known for shows such as "Silicon Valley" and "The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail"), who plays the game warden Pasha in this episode, is also a devoted X-Phile who hosts "The X-Files Files," a podcast on which he discusses and analyzes in detail each episode of the original series.

When Pasha sneaks up on Mulder between the two tractor trailers Mulder spins round with his phone's camera app still malfunctioning. As he does this we first see the phone's screen facing Pasha (meaning that the flash side is facing Mulder, effectively taking pictures of himself instead) but when the scene cuts back to Mulder the screen is now facing Mulder once again as it should be. Moments later once the Were-Monster appears this happens again as Mulder and Pasha turn to face it, first the screen is facing the Were-Monster and then when ti cuts back to Mulder the screen is now facing him again.

Fox Mulder: Looks like you gave it a pretty good shot.
Annabelle: I think I hit it right in its horn.
Dana Scully: Hmm. It had a horn. Like a... unicorn?
Annabelle: It had horns. At the back of its head, like a lizard or something.
Fox Mulder: [shows a drawing of the monster] Did it look anything like this?
Annabelle: No. The thing I saw only had two eyes. And it was wearing underwear.
Dana Scully: Boxers or briefs?
Annabelle: Tighty-whities. Same kind I used to wear. I transitioned last year.

Utter Garbage
4 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Let me just say that I've been coming to this site since it first came into existence and I've never felt compelled to create a profile until now.

I can't remember ever feeling as disappointed after viewing a TV show as I do so now after watching this episode.

I was a massive X-Files fan growing up and when the news first broke that they were creating a new season I was ecstatic! Even after all this time, I thought if they just stick to the tried and tested formula that worked with the previous 9 seasons then this has to be good!

However, as the season kicked off, my joy slowly turned to sorrow and this episode was the epitome of my dismay. From start to finish it was absolute rubbish. It had no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

I just hope that some fan will read my comments so that they skip this episode and not have their memories tarnished by what can only be described as tripe.

Thoroughly disappointed to say the least.
