Critic Reviews for Plus One

Narrative-wise, this case file was replete with clunky dialogue, bad exposition, and just an overall lack of sense, capped off by a truly anti-climatic climax that was resolved far too easily.

Yes, I am a die-hard 'shipper, and Mulder and Scully were ridiculously cute this week.

The creep factor is offset by a broad comic tone that does not feel as discordant as it does in some of Carter's more out-there efforts.

Creator Chris Carter delivered easily his best episode as writer in the rebooted series with a story that answers that question and gives us a creepy horror story to boot.

It's an interesting story for Scully considering Gillian Anderson has said she's done with The X-Files after this season. Whether intentional or not, it gives the episode a ring of inevitability that echoes real life.

Chris Carter returns to pen this week's episode, "Plus One," an hour that works mostly as a stand-alone thriller but is far more effective for anyone who has a history with Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.

There's a blessed lightness to the whole affair, down to the casting of Karin Konoval - who appeared in two of the show's greatest episodes ever.

Seeing Scully's and Mulder's doppelgangers gave the Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny something a little different to do rather than playing their usual characters.

It was a nice mix of creepy old casework and newfound perspective.

I still think Carter is gonna blow this, but in this liminal space is, I think, where I want this show to be, embracing the future rather than fighting it.
