    Frankly, I was disappointed with some of the recent episodes. I thought Dreamland had a lot of potential but ultimately failed to be funny or suspenseful.



    This episode was a bit different, but I thought it was legitimately funny. Our rain king introduction (that was great acting BTW), scully's long silence after Mulder says he's giving dating advice, and even small lines like "unless you want to get hamburger all over you, I reckon you should step outside".



    Yes, the plot is cheesy. But it works because the episode is supposed to be cheesy, and everything is consistent with that. They also do a great job of teasing our appetite for Mulder and Scully getting together.
