Did You Know?


In the cemetery, Mulder and Guy discuss a line from the first act of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" - "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Hamlet says it to his classmate from the University of Wittenberg after they have just seen and heard the Ghost of Hamlet's Father. Guy mentions a variation that appears in the First Folio (1623), an authoritative early collection of 36 of Shakespeare's plays, published seven years after the playwright's death. See more »

A humorous motw episode, which works quite well
8 February 2016 | by rlaineSee all my reviews

Can't say I'm a big fan of the humorous x-files episodes, but this one works. It starts out like any x-files motw episode, but you get the idea from little details that it's not gonna be a serious episode. It's surprisingly goofy, but the script, acting and direction are spot on. Mulder and Scully are like they need to be, despite the goofiness.

I had to look up Rhys Darby from IMDb to see what he had done before, because he looked so familiar and he is the band manager (?) from Flight of the Conchords. In a way this episode is a bit similar in style. Comedic, but smart.

After the lackluster episode one of s10 I'm glad to see the rest of the episodes have been really good so far. Looking forward to the last three.
