The third episode is not just a welcome improvement but among the best single hours in the entire series, thanks in large part to some very clever writing and directing from Darin Morgan and a hilarious turn from Rhys Darby as Guy Mann.

Grade A. Darin Morgan, one of the show's great original writers, crafted a funny and touching "monster of the week" episode with nods to the past.

"Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" is thrillingly alive with people, creatures, and all their wondrous shades of character.

Though "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" is the weakest script Morgan has contributed to the show, it still boasts enough tremendous moments to be one of the biggest TV events of the year.

"Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" left me as giddier as a stoner huffing spray paint in the pale moonlight.

This episode was one for the true believers, and there are "Easter eggs" throughout.

The episode fully exhibits the alternately sardonic and melancholic perspective that Morgan cultivated in such peak X-Files installments as Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose and Jose Chung's From Outer Space.

All that said - what a delight. Killer banter, great jokes and such charming performances from Anderson (clearly having a great time) and Duchovny (working hard to give his more serious moments real weight). And the supporting work is great, too.

Now, that's more like it. The return of writer Darin Morgan for "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" also marks a return to classic The X-Files.

Morgan's "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster" lived up to every wish and hope I had for it.

Who says miracles don't happen? Bring on episode four (or five, or whatever it really is, lol) - Mondays can't get here fast enough, as far as I'm concerned!

Anything I could write couldn't help you appreciate this episode's utterly zany sense of humor, delivered in fine absurdist form by writer Darin Morgan.

Finally, this scene sets up one of the episode's strongest self analysis tools: the obstacle of writing mysterious fiction in a world where smartphones exist. All of this happens within like 6 minutes. Amazing.

It's hilarious, full of science fiction references and B-movie spirit, and, ultimately, rich with meaning. It's also great.

"Mulder & Scully Meet The Were-Monster" is the first episode of the show's new season that feels like a legit defense of season 10's existence.

"Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster" may have delivered an abrupt change in tone, one felt even more so given this revival's short 6-episode length, but it was really freakin' fun. And funny.

The episode feels like all of Morgan's greatest hits rolled into one very funny hour of television.

"Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" was a light and very weird episode that still felt meaningful.

"Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" is a zippy, goofy and self-referential hour of magical realism.
