  • The X-Files second pilot . . .

    9.7
    The X-Files had the mytharc and the monsters of the week, two distinct episode types, and so it's almost like it had two pilots. This is the first MOTW, and it's amazing; I was actually afraid of the dark the night after I watched this, and that didn't happen with very many episodes. Chris Carter always says that the X-Files is as scary as it is real, and this episode is a perfect example because, while mutants may or may not exist, we all have ventilation shafts, and what may be coming through them in the dark is all left to the imagination . . . Also, Scully may get saved in this episode, but she puts up not only a good fight but a nearly successful fight before she does so. Hear that sound behind you? Its the sound of the screw turning on your vent. Better get out.
