The X-Files Season 7

SPOILERS TOTAL.  You've been warned.

---

801: Within 2000 November 5

Scully says something like "Being a scientist means not immediately dismissing something just because you can't explain it." Where was THAT character for the first 7 seasons?

---

802: Without 2000 November 12

So it's no surprise that the main FBI investigation wasn't really meant to have success, but why Doggett leading it? I mean, was he on someone's bad side so they decided to use a farce of a search to knock him down a peg?

803: Patience 2000 November 19

Boy, the monster wasn't very secret this time. Usually they end up with lots of inconclusive clues, and yeah, previously there have been hints in old newspapers... but this time the more skeptical guy halfway through the episode shows up and goes "Yo, this half-man half-bat thing made the front page of the newspaper with this clear photograph a few decades back."

For the first non-Mulder episode of the season, he's still mentioned quite a lot. I imagine this will happen less as time goes on.

804: Roadrunners 2000 November 26

Scully versus the lame Goa'uld.

At first I thought "A Doggett-lite episode already?", but it becomes clear it's because the story needed them in separate places.

If there's one thing I've learned from X-Files, it's that all small towns are secretly full of insane cultists.

805: Invocation 2000 December 3

It's like without Mulder around they compensate by making the weird stuff more obvious and harder to brush off as nothing. A kid shows up unchanged (physically) after 10 years, and later the same kid's long-decayed remains are found. This is well beyond "Well, maybe we imagined it." territory.

Scully snaps at Doggett for illegally looking at juvenile records--but before he was around she brushed off her and Mulder's repeated failures to get warrants as something of a joke.

---

806: Redrum 2000 December 10

Light on the main characters, but a really good episode anyway.

---

807: Via Negativa 2000 December 17

Man, now Skinner is the one suggesting that a guy succeeded in reaching another plane of existence to become a noncorporeal killer? Were he and Scully just waiting for Mulder to leave the room?

---

808: Surekill 2001 January 7

---

809: Salvage 2001 January 14

Nice to see that in the X-Files universe Indiana is apparently home to bleeding-edge metal technology.

---

810: Badlaa 2001 January 21

So if this guy has the ability to cause illusions in general... it seems the trick of repeatedly climbing into people's butts was kind of overdoing it.
