Audience Reviews for The X-Files: Season 2

  • Aug 11, 2021
    The Xfiles keeps pumping out fresh content.
  • Apr 03, 2021
    This was really clever bro
  • Jan 28, 2020
    While there are a few lacking, if not outright convoluted, episodes such as "3" and the mythology-disguised-as-an-MOTW-episode which hastily got rid of a character from the first season finale, The X-Files improves drastically in its second season. The acting is better, the production values are higher, secondary characters are fleshed out more, the new characters of Krycek, X and the Alien Bounty Hunter are memorable, there's a better balance between the two different types of episodes and the show isn't afraid to get into some darker topics that the first season was more reluctant to explore. While "Die Hand die Verletzt" is considered to be one of the darkest episodes once it drops its black comedy facade, personally I found "The Calusari" to be the darkest episode of the season with the Donnie Pfaster episode a very close second. I think it had to do with the opening scene giving me uncomfortable memories of Stephen King and Heavy Rain. Who'd have thought one pregnancy would change the entire course of the show back in its heyday? All in all, this is a very good second season that heavily improves on what was good about its preceding season and I look forward to seeing what later seasons have to offer.
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Great Season some episode I have a little mixed reactions.
  • Dec 27, 2018
    Enjoyed a lot, again, and even better than the 1st season.
  • Mar 09, 2018
    The second season of the x-files continues the good tradition of season one. a couple of episodes like "3" and "fearful symmetry" fall a little short.
  • Dec 30, 2017
    Unbelievably the show got better. The introduction to an overall conspiracy within the FBI sets this a little higher than the previous season. Cast regulars are introduced and the growing paranoia is mounting throughout the season. With Anderson being heavily pregnant the writers took full advantage and served up some of the best drama on the show. The stand alone episodes are better and more consistent and the cliff hanger at the end is a memorable turn in the X-FILES leagacy. Mulder and Scully are fleshed out in this season and you feel the closeness develop between them throughout.
  • Sep 24, 2017
    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.

    Some of these episodes get very caught up in dark subject matter, which gives me the creeps but may draw others. Some truly evil and scary monsters both human and supernatural.
  • Mar 28, 2017
    The X-Files: Season 2 is created by Chris Carter, and it stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in a science fiction drama about the X-Files being gone, and so Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) have to spend their lives apart from each other in different careers, despite the fact that they still hang out in secret and solve cases their own way. Ever since I finished the first season, I got less enthusiastic in watching the second season as I keep falling asleep during the episodes, and was at the point that I didn't feel like watching the show, that is until months later where it's about to expire on Netflix here soon, so I had to come back to the show and try to watch it with the same amount of enthusiasm as I did with the first one, but I won't be able to finish the remaining seasons as there's way too many episodes with that long runtime that I have time with, so let's talk about this. The acting is still good, and it seems like their chemistry is getting more comfortable enough for me to find interesting in their interplay, despite them not agreeing with each other. Skinner is in this more, and when I keep seeing him, the more I realize how cool this character is based on what he has to deal with, and a great performance from Mitch Pileggi. Most of the episodes are entertaining and interesting to watch, while some of the episodes are either similar to other episodes, not quite that good, or just not that interesting to watch. I actually find the main plot to be more interesting than the Monster-of-the-Week episodes which there are half in there that are creepy and creative, especially that one episode called Humbug that is a bit different from the usual episodes in terms of its tone that is more comedic, and it's really funny thanks to the script by Darin Morgan. There are some new characters that are in the season, and while it's interesting to see them actually be the villains, it's a bit too early on that reveal, and when it gets to the end of the season, I immediately forgot about that character. I could say that this season is a bit of an improvement from the first one, and it gives off some new character moments from Mulder and Scully, which I'm glad I got more from those guys. So with that on end, The X-Files: Season 2 is a great season that hopefully I get to watch the next seasons so I can get more of an understanding on the X-Files films.
