When Stevenger posted about the new mini series of The X-Files back in in February, I had intended on watching it but as usual I forgot. So instead, over the past month I have watched 16 episodes of The X-Files Season 4 on DVD and I must say it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Some episodes I vaguely remember from the original UK airing in 97/98, others are completely new to me – such as “Small Potatoes” that I just finished watching and felt compelled to recommend. It is a very light hearted episode with some real funny moments in. Without giving too many spoilers – the episode is about a man who can convincingly mimic other people’s appearances, including agent Fox Mulder. David Duchovny plays a great role as his goofy doppelganger and the whole episode seems centered around poking fun at his character.
I’ll be ordering season 5 imminently now I’m on to the final disc of season 4.
