Critics Of "The X-Files - Season 11"
March 08, 2018 Actively, this is short-sighted, spotty-ass writing, beholden to high-concept ideas without the intelligence or imagination to give them weight, to anchor all the weirdness in anything but grim, typically grotesque bloodshed.Read in Source
March 08, 2018 I kind of liked it? I mean, there's more to criticize, and we'll get to that, but up until the last five minutes or so, I enjoyed "Familiar," in no small part thanks to the predictable but deeply creepy set-pieces.Read in Source
March 08, 2018 There's something refreshing about how standalone this episode is - after so many episodes that doubled as commentary on The X-Files, here this season relaxes into the sort of unselfconscious story that made up the bulk of the show.Read in Source

March 08, 2018 "Familiar" works in a way no other "serious" episodes have lately. There's no incoherent William drama, no awkward struggle to incorporate fan-service cameos.Read in Source
