The X-Files "Founder's Mutation" Review - AVClub

AVClub: The most important decision in “Founder’s Mutation” happens before the episode starts. It’s a decision that sacrifices plausibility in the name of narrative efficiency and momentum. That’s a difficult trick to pull off, but the episode works because it rewards viewers’ willingness to go along for the ride. This isn’t the best episode of The X-Files ever made, but it’s far more competent and confident than the premiere. It feels right, in a way “My Struggle” didn’t quite manage to pull off. That’s hard praise to pin down, but I stand by it. I liked the first episode, but I’m not sure I’d defend it; I’ll stand by “Founder’s Mutation.”
