The X-Files (S1.Ep9) – “Space”

Season 1 – Episode 8 – “Space” ⭐️

Director: William A. Graham Writers: Chris Carter Cast: David DuchovnyGillian AndersonEd Lauter 

This is often regarded as the lowest point of the entire 10 year series and I can see why: I complete honesty I cannot find a single redeemable feature in it, from the uninspiring intro all the way to the terrible speeches at the end and everything that was in between.For a start it’s really boring, and that’s its greatest sin: it feels like a 10 minutes story stretched over 40-something. An untrusting story, with bland character and in which Mulder and Scully are basically left to do pretty much nothing but watch other people looking at screens: they bring nothing to the table, neither their experience, not their charm. The actual idea of dealing with real space exploration could have been quite a refreshing change from aliens but its execution is so lame (mixing stock shots of shuttles with a cheap-looking NASA station) that they should have dropped it. I gave this one enough time already, so enough talking about it.The only good thing about watching it today is that to erase it from my memory as quick as possible I can watch another one straight away without having to wait a week.
