Last night was a classic stand-alone episode. Loved the camp.

Favorite line... "This is how I like my Mulder."

The sex fantasy was great. X has had some dirty moments so far

From the sate of the office at beginning of the episode, I'd say this one was originally slated to be episode 2.

Seeing two of my favourite comic actors in one of my favourite ever shows was amazing. What's more is the story itself was engaging, original, smart, funny, clever, and enthralling.

Given Darin Morgan's cult status as a favourite writer of many Philes - I'm sure most of you were as thrilled as I was when they announced he was writing an episode. That one passed all expectations. A classic I believe will sit comfortably at the top of Darin's best x files work with Jose and Clyde.

I have always been a bigger fan of the mythology, but Darin's episodes are a real exception.

Any early thoughts on this latest episode?

The trash man wasn't as interesting as Scullys moms scenes. Gosh I wish we had more episodes. Next week looks great. Working with younger versions of themselves

Mmm, second worst episode so far. Shame, because there was enough there to be really good - just wasn't quite right

Laughed a couple of times, Mulder's 76ers comment, the smiley face on the sculpture at the end. OK episode, but not what you want in a 6 episode season.

Just way too much going on.

Monster of the week, death of a Scully, more "wahhh, our baby" drama. (Can you tell I'm still bitter about that storyline?)

Overall, I am very disappointed with this mini-run. They're cramming in way too much stuff for six episodes, and it's nothing we haven't already seen. Experiments on pregnant women? It's been done. A golem? It's been done (not that it was a memorable episode). Scully's brother Bill being a dick? Done.

Although can you blame the never-seen-Charlie for getting away from that family? One sister killed as collateral damage in an alien conspiracy. The other sister kidnapped, given cancer, and cured by a computer chip in an alien conspiracy. His goodbye note probably said "LOL NOPE."

Next week appears to be another one-off. Are they going to have the finale be the other mythology episode? Or did they bring back CSM for no good reason? I don't want the finale to be yet more "making hash of the mythology AGAIN," but I think that's what it's going to be. I can only assume the intent is to continue doing these mini-runs.

But please, Fox and Chris Carter. Let it die.

I'm not as down on it. One and four weren't good, and they have been cramming too much in, but they are just feeling out the formula. Two and three were very good and great episodes. If one of the next two is as good as the second one, it will all have been worthwhile for mine

I'll get round to binge watching these six episodes at some point, but I'll be going in with fairly low expectations. I thought that the concept (as great as it was) and these two characters (as great as they were) had run their course quite awhile back. Perhaps the best thing these new episodes may accomplish would be to encourage younglings to go and explore the early seasons (and they'd be in for a treat).
