    Again, conspiracy theories and assumptions of government manipulation save another episode of "The X Files", highlighting the NASA space experiments, heavily guarded by the U.S. government, and the space race between USA and USSR, which occurred in the Cold War, with a healthy dose of conspiracy and concealment of information about the Apollos and Sputniks, the programs of the U.S. company, forging evidence refuting the existence of real alien, all designed in a shallow way. The episode is quite messy, with a crappy "high" and a story that is not decided in focus between the ghost of mars, the threat of exploding ship or research on sabotage (poorly explained, by the way), taking full glare that could have and even the protagonist couple. Not to mention the special effects poorly made because of lack of budget that the series obtained, and ended in embarrassment scenes quite ridiculous. Not boring, but it's trash ... And trash really does not fit with "X-Files."
