Goofs

Both Agent Scully and the coroner repeatedly refer to the fungus as a plant. Fungi do not belong to the kingdom Plantae; they belong to their own, and are even considered to be more closely related to animals than to plants. While neither of them are botanists or mycologists by profession, they would have learned this fact in a basic undergraduate general biology course. See more »

Dream trap
18 November 2018 | by ionut-91824See all my reviews

A good episode in my opinion. In fact, each episode in the x files deserves a comment. Episode 21 of season 6 is one of the most successful. Keep the viewer in suspense and make him a kind of witness of the dream that happens in the dream. I talked metaphorically. Not all episodes of this series are based only on psychological dramas, but this episode does it. Episode 21 is very similar to successful psychological films and if in just 45 minutes of view I liked, I think if it had a 2 hour stretch it would have been a successful movie.
