Critic Reviews for My Struggle III

It's enough to make you wish the aliens would just come back and end the world already.

Jan 11, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

There's a glorious insanity to "My Struggle III" that approaches telenovela ridiculousness and climaxes in a series of revelations that challenge the entire arc of the show.

Jan 11, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This isn't really good, and my main hope for the rest of the season is that all of these elements are either shoved to the background or presented in a different light once the show's other writers get on board. But at least it's not a total collapse.

The episode feel like a frenetic example of wheel-spinning.

[The mythology is like] one of those illusory conspiracies out of a Raúl Ruiz or Jacques Rivette film in which the aura of something sinister matters more than the reasons behind the portent.

X-Files returns to pick up the pieces from last year's finale, but it only creates a sloppier mess that undermines its audience.

Because honestly, this episode felt very haphazard.

It is with heavy heart that I inform you that the first episode of the sci-fi drama's Season 11 is like Eddie Van Blundht's version of Mulder: It sounds a lot like the entity we know and love, but really just turns out to be bloated and a little dumb.

Yes, the strangest truth of all is that the show that basically invented the modern procedural (case/monster-of-the-week mixed with serialized background noise/mythology) has now lost its serialized mojo.

Jan 5, 2018 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

Even though The X-Files stumbles out of the gate in season 11, it seems there's still some life left in Mulder and Scully's search for the Truth after all.

I'm not sure if I want to believe anymore.

The idea behind "My Struggle III" was interesting, bringing the shady dealings of the original series on a national scale, but the execution was terrible.
