This show has seemed to decided to revel in lunacy and silliness in its new incarnation. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's just over the top. That happened a few times in Season 10. It's balancing out a little better this time.

However, the next episode, penned by legend Darin Morgan, really looks ridiculous. Even its title, "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat", sounds like Morgan is really trying his hardest to be oddball. He pulled it off extremely well in the first run of the series. But last season's episode he wrote was a real dud.

So far, Glen Morgan's episode, "This", has been the most entertaining. not just because it "brought back" the Gunmen, but it just had that old "X-Files' feel. This was also present in Morgan & Wong's contribution last season, "Founder's Mutation".

Carter seems to just want to have some sick fun, especially in the 1st episode where he puts a really disturbing twist on Scully's son William.

and Gillian Anderson really sounds horrible. i don't know what's going on with her healthwise but it sounds like she's got something.

It really has been all over the place, but I find myself enjoying it. I liked ‘Plus One’ last night, it really did feel like the good old school monster of the week ep.
