“El Mundo Gira” is a much less competent riff on “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space”, whereas “Leonard Betts” is a much more competent riff on “Squeeze”. Also! Scully has cancer, apparently.

Glen Morgan’s first solo script for The X-Files, “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man”, raises a lot of questions about the titular characters but doesn’t provide any concrete answers. “Tunguska” is another mythology episode that doesn’t provide any answers. We’re starting to see how you got your reputation, The X-Files.

Glen Morgan and James Wong continue to get experimental with “The Field Where I Died”, and in “Sanguinarium” a pair of sisters, Vivian and Valerie Mayhew, (who sadly never wrote for The X-Files again) gives us the ur-X-Files episode. Plus! Is Game of Thrones a good TV show? (Spoiler alert: no.)

xf402_2285

Tuning In returns to The X-Files¬†at an interesting point, as the fourth season of the show was the first one that aired on Sunday nights. “Herrenvolk” is basically a reintroduction to all the mythology backstory, and “Home” feels like a gauntlet-throwing episode.
