Season 2: Episode 5 - Duane Barry
Z: Wow, Brandon does not like aliens. I mean, he loves them. But he is very, very scared of them. We watched this one over breakfast and multiple times did he say, “I’m glad we’re watching this during the day…if it was nighttime, I don’t know…” And Brandon’s right, those creepy aliens are scary. Nobody wants their teeth lasered, amiright?
Honestly, I didn’t truly appreciate this episode until we watched the second half of the cliffhanger. More on that later, but this really was an excellent episode. The pacing, the reveal that Duane Barry is suffering from delusions due to a head injury, then the reveal within a reveal that, oh wait, he has alien bits inside of him and maybe he was abducted after all and THEN reveal within a reveal within a reveal SCULLY GETS KIDNAPPED. (Noooooo.)
Also Mulder goes swimming in a tiny red Speedo at the beginning of the episode. How come? No clue, but it seems pretty essential to his character development. I don’t think we would have “gotten” Mulder had we not seen him in a tiny, red Speedo. Mmmhm.
B: Alright, I’ll admit it, growing up, there was nothing that fascinated but scared me more than alien abduction and that is a big part of why I loved The X-Files so deeply. However, when its done right, as a child (and even a little now as an adult), I could get utterly paralyzed by the fear of it. I doubt if back in 1994, I did start watching this episode, I could have got through the cold open. By today’s standards, the alien abduction scene shows some cracks in the special effects, but still looks pretty darn good.
The rest of the episode is really close to perfect and I would probably give it a nine or ten if it only had more real Scully action. The idea of using the Phineus Gage incident as a way to add doubt to the character of Duane Barry and his side of the story was real genius. I would also like to add that Zara was right on top of Phineus Gage and gave me a nice description of him about four seconds before Scully did. The episode is set almost entirely in one room during a hostage situation, then as all of Duane Barry’s supposed lies start to unravel as true, Scully is kidnapped and we are thrown our first “to be continued…” of the series.
This episode continues to show the quality that is coming later down the road. I would also like to point out that the best episodes so far have all been alien-rated. That’s a fact.
Excuse me, I have to go hide under the covers in my bed for a week.

Season 2: Episode 4 - Sleepless
Z: This episode was alright. US soldiers are turned into sleepless killing machines in Vietnam and subsequently go bonkers on each other. The episode basically provides an excuse to introduce us to two new recurring characters - the mysterious new informant “X” and new FBI buddy, Alex Krycek. He’s so keen! And he loves Mulder! NOPE. Just another pawn of Cigarette Smoking Man. I was kind of surprised that they reveal that he’s spying on Mulder and Scully at the end of the very same episode where his character is introduced. I feel like that could have been a later reveal but I guess they were like, who cares, let’s just get this set up as soon as we can and call it a day.
B: According to my minutes of research, this is one of Chris Carter’s favorite episodes, which is odd because I personally wasn’t that into it. This is more like a Fringe episode than an X-File, with the monster being more of a science experiment gone wrong than really paranormal. I still think its so weird that they got their show called the X-Files about X-Files renewed for a second season, and there’s no actual X-Files yet.
On the positive side are the introductions of X and poor poor Alex Krycek. I agree with Zara that they should have made Mulder and especially the viewer trust him more before revealing that he’s just a puppet, it would have made that turn have so much more weight and wouldn’t have changed too much story-wise. Enjoy Krycek while you can, because his character is going to get really annoying quick.
