  • An enjoyable mix of horror and humour

    Scary Monsters is not the most remarkable X-Files episode. The idea behind the episode is simplistic, and familiar now that the show is in its ninth season. However, writer Thomas Schnauz does strike up the perfect balance between horror and humour. The result is an episode that is highly enjoyable to watch. Also the inclusion of two references to previous episodes, D.P.O (Season 3) and Field Trip (Season 6) adds extra interest for the devoted X-Phile. Agent Leyla Harrison makes a welcome return, once again singing the praises of Agents Mulder and Scully. Although the episode concludes with her commending Doggett on solving the case, “your lack of imagination saved our lives.”
