The mythology episodes:
"The Beginning" An FBI committee decides that yes, the X-Files will be reopened, they will not however, include Agents Mulder and Scully. Agents Spinder and Fowler will take that role, both with a huge helping of duplicity. AD Skinner is still on their side though and leads them towards a case that involves the Alien/Syndicate conspiracy. Gibson Praise makes a return as well. "SR 819" Krycek makes a new appearance and he targets AD Skinner with alien created nanite technology.
"Two Fathers" & "One Son" Long awaited truths are finally revealed about the fifty year conspiracy between the syndicate and the aliens. The syndicate is all but destroyed by the alien rebels. Simply stated, these are the two episodes that every fan had been waiting five years for. No disappointment whatsoever.
"The Unnatural" I list this as a mythology episode, as it simply does not fit as a stand alone. This episode is singularly the best episode of the season as it contains some great humor and one of the most touching endings of the season. We are treated to meeting Arthur Dale or actually his brother, as he tells Mulder the tale of when he met his first alien.Read more ›
"The Beginning" ties into the movie although the movie could stand independently on its own (which is just as well because despite some marvelous set pieces it basically was a rehashing of a number of alien movies). Mulder and Scully have been removed from the X Files and replaced by two new agents. One of the most interesting episodes includes "SR 819" where Assistant Director Skinner is black mailed into helping an old foe. Skinner has been infected with some mysterious organism that this other person can control to make Skinner do his bidding.
Bruce Campbell appears as a philandering husband in "Terms of Endearment". When his baby disappears and is apparently taken by a Demon Mulder and Scully are called in by local police to help with the case. Campbell gives an excellent performance.
The two part "Dreamland" is terrific with a great guest performance by Michael McKean ("Spinal Tap"). A black ops agent switches bodies with Mulder freeing him from his shrewish wife and stuffy lifestyle. Suddenly Mulder becomes a wild and crazy guy.Read more ›
In my opinion, the chief problem with Season 6 (and 7, for that matter) is the prescence of some poorly executed "humorous" episodes. In the early seasons, there would every so often be an episode that was funny and tongue-in-cheek, without losing that X-Files feel. With Season 6, however, such episodes ceased to be genuinely funny, and became simply silly and wacky, providing little laughter that isn't forced. This season's worst offender is "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas," in which Mulder and Scully are trapped on Christmas Eve in a haunted mansion, whose ghostly residents wish to goad the FBI agents into a murder-suicide - by spouting pop psychology at them. Episodes that aren't mainly spoofs are also harmed by the silliness. "Agua Mala," in which a hurricane lets a sea monster loose in an apartment building, could have been a genuinely creepy episode, except for the fact that the building's tenants are all trite stereotypes.
While there were problems, the good outweighed the bad in this season. The mythology episodes continued to be superb, especially "Two Fathers"/"One Son," a two-parter which essentially brings closure to the "Mytharc" running through the past five seasons. The season's only successfully humorous episodes are also mythology-related, namely the two-part "Dreamland," in which Mulder and an Area 51 operative switch bodies, and "The Unnatural," which tells the story of a star baseball player who is in fact an alien.Read more ›
