Root and Reese stomp around a town doing violent and threatening things. Fusco bores. This has no resonance. The snotty IA cop is back but now she’s working gangs. She’s thankless and contentious. Common assumptions are wrong. Reese and Rot act aggressively. These people are all jerks. So much for iron control. This was discombobulatingly terrible. There is misplaced anger and blame. Seriously WTF is wrong with them? Greer has Shaw and he can keep her.

Mulder And Scully Meet The Were-Monster
Technically this is season 10 I suppose. A monster becomes a man in this Darin Morgan written and directed tale. Tyler Labine shows up again as a druggie the same character he played in ‘War of the Coprophages‘ and ‘Quagmire‘. Mulder is on meds. Scully has no desk but her hair is red again. She’s bony and Mulder’s suit doesn’t fit. Mulder can’t work his camera app. Where’s Tad? Mulder sleeps in his red Speedos. Mulder makes persuasive arguments, Scully is in peril, there is a mention of Scully’s dog and Scully steals herself a new dog. This was okay, but why?
“Bored and or crazy.”
“They think I’m on crack.”
“The internet is not good for you.”
“Myths originally concocted to explain away the violent behaviour of people who’d been bitten by rabid animals.”
“This is how I like my Mulder.”
“Looking for some kind of internal logic.”
Book of the Damned
This has sultry head turns, deep voices and a remarkably appropriate title but it was still stupid. The angels don’t spend their time as the theological chattering elite mumbling Holy Writ no they fight and kill each other. Castiel is distinctly staid and why is he still on the show? Charlie shows up to be hollow and self serving, she is not endearingly daft no matter how hard TPTB push the manic pixie dream girl on us.
There are no real authentic moments just padding and terse responses. The brothers are living a life wildly different from season 1. There are no relics of decency in this largely unadventurous ep. A new social evil the Styne family show up. There is a book of malevolentia and ill-will. Crowley has a mother. Sam pulls faces and still can’t act. This was made with staggering incompetence. This show is in terminal decline and gives no cultural enrichment.
“I ain’t your friend.”
“All kinds of wrong.”
