Cigarette Smoking Man: My name is Carl Gerhard Busch. But I've been known by many aliases during my long career with the U.S. government. It's been a humbling job, though I'm hardly known as a humble man. I've been a witness to history, much of it violent, much of it an abomination of the values Americans hold dear.

A strange mix of past and present
5 January 2018 | by stanicnenadSee all my reviews

This show needs more episodes with monsters, friks and bizarre moments like in the past. Conspiracy theories, extraterrestrials, and government intrigues do not have that quality and that charm.

The series needs more episodes such as: Squeeze, Ice, Darkness Falls, Tooms, The Host, Firewalker, Irresistible, Die Hand Die Verletzt, Dold Kalm, Soft Light, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose, 2Shy, Pusher, Unruhe, Leonard Betts, Detour, Chinga, Folie à Deux, Drive, Field Trip, Agua Mala, Hungry , Orison, Signs and Wonders, Patience, Roadrunners, "Badlaa" and so on...

The good side of this episode is Mulder and Scully. In the last season they were too soft and comical, especially Mulder. Here, they are again dark and serious.
