    I don't know, dude. That was bad. Was it written by a sixth grader?

    That was hilarious. Best episode so far. Weird as all hell, but so, so many shout-outs throughout the episode. Queequeg, Kim Manners' tombstone, Mulder's ringtone, the red speedo, Scully being "immortal," the list goes on and on...

    What was the "Scully immortal" reference? Some role Anderson played I'm unaware of?

    This episode was great. I love when they do weird episodes like this. The whole idea of a were-human having an uncontrollable urge to get a job he hates so he can get a mortgage is hilarious.

    I half expected to see the Winchester Brothers at the motel though.

    As soon as Rhys Darby hit the screen, without even knowing the plot I kept saying 'Rhys Darby is the man!'.

    Loved it! The scene where Mulder is in Scully's motel room and every time she's about to speak, Mulder says, "...to which you would say..." was excellent. I loved the look on her face as she just sat there humoring him.

    Fantastic episode!
    I loved how it felt right just like the older light touch episodes.
    The villain being a cursed lizard, the shout out to Kim Manners, the Darren McGavin wardrobe, the multiple sides of the same story, the X-Files ringtone, I could just go on..

    I thought this was one of the worst episodes of any tv show I've ever watched. I guess you have to be a big time X-Files afficianado to get all the inside jokes to appreciate it. All I know is that this episode lost me from the very beginning, with Mulder whining about how all the X-File-ish mysteries have been solved. Are there only six episodes? If so, after three of them I can't figure out why this series was resurrected.

    X-Files, in it's original run, wasn't all serious episodes... look at episodes like "Jose Chung’s From Outer Space" and "Bad Blood," among others, for examples of X-Files comedic episodes.

    I'm glad they included an episode like this one as a salute to those episodes, and I think it ranked right up there with the best of those comedic episodes.

    I loved the old comedy episodes. But this one (like the whole new series) seemed rather flat and rote. The jokes went on way too long, and Anderson and especially Duchovny seemed to be phoning it in.

    I guess the new series is OK from a strictly nostalgic perspective, but I was hoping for something more.

    I either don't remember or didn't stick with the original series long enough to view the comedic episodes. This seemed like a Wayans brothers parody of the X-Files without the Wayans brothers. I guess you have to be in on the joke to get the joke. They loved it over at hitfix.com.

    i watched all 3 eps in 24 hours. are these supposed to be stand alones or cohesive? :)

    youd never see scully's boobs in the original ep so this was definitely made to be evocative..or provocative? unsure which

    it seemed like the eps of stargate where they literally were making the show about themselves

    Or like the episode in the original run, "X-Cops," which was an entire episode of X-Files filmed in the style of "Cops."

    I LOVED it.

    Probably my favorite of the first 3 so far.

    I enjoyed it. Rhys Darby was the perfect choice because it set the tone immediately for me. My wife did not enjoy it as much. It almost felt like an episode of Buffy.

    I have to admit that after reading this thread I watched the episode with very low expectations. Well, I can only assume that the naysayers never really watched the original series. This episode was fantastic!!! Okay, not as a template for future episodes, but as a standalone episode and an homage to a number of episodes in the original series.
