He had previously interviewed Darin about his past episodes, which is probably how he got cast for his role in this episode. This first return of Mulder and Scully was not worth the 14-year wait. They tend to mix quirky with serious. . One of the elements of the X-Files reboot that got old-school fans most excited was that—in addition to bringing back the core trio of Carter, Anderson, and Duchovny—Fox was calling on some of the more eccentric X-Files voices to inject some serious weirdness into the paranormal show that ruled the 90s.
Meanwhile, Mulder is able to confront some of his own demons about feeling disillusioned with his life's work. So funny, and like others have mentioned, it's very much in line with other funny episodes of the series' past. I had no idea this show was so schizophrenic, especially in 3 episodes. This type of episode is trademark quirky X-Files. If you watched The X-Files all the way through for the first time in the 90s, you may not have paid special attention to who wrote which episodes. Did you ever watch the show in the past? Which shoots blood out its eyeball, Scully, yes.
In fact, it might make fans wish Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson had left well enough alone.

Wong and Glen Morgan were integral in creating the first two seasons of the show but left during Season 3 thanks to a lucrative offer to create their own show. This is very much a Mulder episode, with our lead feeling somewhat lost in his own life, questioning everything he wants to believe in. It has a monster in it. Out of context in the summer, the clip seemed like a spoof. Maybe they'd be willing to do more limited episode runs like this.
We learn through his amusing conversations with Mulder that he was in fact born a monster and it was a bite from a human that turned him into a man. This type of episode is trademark quirky X-Files. Anderson seems equally placid and unhurried on her part, which makes the whole affair seem as it did when a sneak preview was shown to critics in the summer slightly off. In other words, I want to believe. What follows is possibly the most bizarre episode to date.
Did you ever watch the show in the past? However, the star of this episode is the titular Were-Monster, played wonderfully by New Zealand born comedian Rhys Darby best known for Flight of the Conchords. With the exception of some ambitious, mythology-heavy two-parters, the clear winners were Wong and the Morgan brothers. I sit somewhere in the middle. I would love to see it come back, but I just don't see the actors wanting to do full seasons anymore. But The X-Files was always erratic.
There are entire seasons of the show—mostly the Duchovny-less ones—that fans are happy to pretend never existed. After beginning her career in theatre, Anderson achieved international recognition for her role as Special Agent Dana Scully on the American television series The X-Files. They tend to mix quirky with serious. I just don't get this show. But if it was one-off episodes of The X-Files that would send a chill down your spine and put a song in your heart, then the Morgan brothers and James Wong are who you should be most excited to see return. Her film work includes The House of Mirth 2000 , The Mighty Celt 2005 , The Last King of Scotland 2006 , and two X-Files films, The X-Files 1998 and The X-Files: I Want to Believe 2008 …. A violent monster attack occurs but all is not what it seems.
Some people will love it. And yet, nearly every scene seems stunted and out of any kind of dramatic rhythm. Is it potentially worrisome that Fox only released the first new episode when they usually let critics take a peek at a few? Some people will hate it. Just bizarre acting and Anderson seems to be perpetually sedated. . . .
