Critic reviews for This

There were a number of charming exchanges this week, not the least of which was Mulder and Scully digging with delight into bran muffins.

It suggests that things are looking up for season 11. Just because the characters are dreading the future doesn't mean the audience should dread following them there.

The omnipresent trap of life is to privilege that over this. Live among the dead and you miss what's right in front of you.

"This" is a major step back in the right direction for the show that, as of last week, seemed painfully uncool and out of touch.

"This" is so much better than last week's premiere. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are even more on point as Mulder and Scully that I had flashbacks to seasons two and three.

Part of "This" feel a bit like a standalone episode edited down to fit into a mythology entry, which can be frustrating. And yet the more I think about it, the more I appreciate what it achieves.
