Critic reviews for My Struggle III

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.

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.

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

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.
