Critic Reviews for The X-Files Season 2

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

The X-Files remains the Twilight Zone of the '90s, but more elliptical, with few factual conclusions and a ceaseless paranoia about the US government.

Apr 25, 2018 | Full Review…

By the time the show really hits its stride with the second and third season, the writers had found a near-perfect balance between its arc plot and its monsters of the week.

Oct 25, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The events that go on here really laid the groundwork for the mythology arc for the rest of the series.

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Mulder, you sad loveable wonderful disgrace. You've been through the mill this season.

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

The X-Files has become Oliver Stone's Ghostbusters.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

When the mythology episodes are bad, they're really bad. But when they're excellent, they're as transcendent as this two-parter that pits Mulder and Scully against the Bounty Hunter

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Give yourself over to The X-Files, and you'll be in the hands of people who know exactly how to mess with your mind.

Jan 5, 2015 | Rating: A | Full Review…

More than any other genre show before or since, The X-Files exploited a simple truth: we all want to believe.

Audience Reviews for The X-Files: Season 2



Super Reviewer


Super Reviewer


The Conspiracy reveals itself in Season 2 of The X-Files. After getting the FBI to reopen the X-Files, Agent Fox Mulder is assigned a new partner, and Agent Dana Scully becomes one of their first cases when she is abducted. Additionally, Mulder finds a new inside contact and learns more about what happened to his sister and the alien conspiracy. The season's a little jumbled (partly due to behind-the-scene issues like Gillian Anderson's pregnancy) but eventual it settles back into a routine and starts developing a continuing mythology about the alien and shadow government conspiracies (as opposed to the scattershot approach of Season 1). Also, the season features a litany of impressive guest stars, including Tony Todd, Shawnee Smith, Terry O'Quinn, Laura Harris, Lance Guest, John Savage, and Tony Shalhoub. The show is still finding its footing, but Season 2 of The X-Files is incredibly exciting and full of thrills.
