A failed attempt at Black Mirror.
14 February 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I am stunned to see such positive reviews on an episode which I thought failed on most levels, it just felt so incomprehensible, a few say it was like an episode straight out of the nineties, not the X Files I remember, there was lots of action sure, but no hint of a plot, and these deep conspiracies within conspiracies are becoming a little boring. The last series was so strong, if these first two are an example of what's ahead then I feel bitterly disappointed. The first episode was poor, and this is only marginally better. I will commend Anderson's acting once again, but sadly Duchovny appears not to want to be there. This was an attempt at creating an episode in the style of Charlie Brooker, and simply not hitting the mark, can we have plots in the remaining episodes please!
