Critic reviews for Kitten

It feels like there was a lot of opportunity here that was ultimately wasted.

February 8, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Casting [Haley Joel] Osment, expert at unnerving creepiness, in a dual role as father and son is a perfect embodiment of the story's themes of stagnancy.

Guest star Haley Joel Osment added a sprinkle of spice to an otherwise humdrum outing in "Kitten" -- a chapter centered on Skinner's experience with experimental fear gas in Vietnam.

Tonight's episode was solid. Not the best of this season, but certainly not the worst.

"Kitten" does a lot of things right and it manages to be one of the better X-Files episodes from this season, but there are still plenty of rough patches in this installment.

March 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

We've seen the distrust between Scully, Mulder, and Skinner grow this season, and "Kitten" is a solid hour in terms of bringing them back to the same cause: discovering the truth.
