The X-Files (S1.Ep10) – “Fallen Angel”

The X-Files – Season 1 – Episode 10 – “Fallen Angel” ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

Director: Larry Shaw. Writers: Chris CarterHoward GordonAlex Gansa. Cast: David DuchovnyGillian AndersonFrederick Coffin, Marshall Bell, Jerry Hardin, Scott Bellis.

At this point in the series the X-Files started really to play with the ideas about government conspiracies. Of course it had all been there right from the start but this is where the show’s so-called “mythology arc” really gets into gear.This will reach great heights towards season 3 (arguably one of the best season not just of the X-Files but to any TV series) and unfortunately it will get itself a bit too tangled up towards the later seasons. It also introduces the shadowy idea that the X-Files could be shut down any moment (and as fans know, this is going to happened more than once) as well as the character Max Fennig, who will come back later on and play a crucial role in season 3. The X-Files is still trying to find the right formula to all these elements which it’s exploring, but even if a lot of this episode is rather unmemorable (in fact it’s as if I was watching it for the first time), a lot of what will make the show great can be seen here, even if in small doses.
