x-files reboot episode 3 review

Well that was certainly weird. It really was mostly a parody episode which in a sense is a bit disappointing. The poor choice of lighting and lack of appropriate music really seemed to have missed a great opportunity to bring back a classic theme. 

This makes me think that this entire re-boot isn’t really serious or they don’t quite know what to do. It was amusing to hear a sort of Australia, though probably New Zealand accent as one of the main suspects.  

But the quote from Mulder something like “I’m getting too old for this” seems to be an indication that there is no further direction to this. But on the other hand this reboot does seem to be more a commentary about the original series.
