Watchin' moar x-files.

Oh, sure, Mulder, whenever *Scully* goes after a crazy theory, all of a sudden it's actually crazy. I guess only one person can be the crazy one at a time. I'm... sort of eh about the religious stuff, but I kind of- I don't really understand how people can be religious and skeptics in the way Scully is at the same time. I mean, I know that people are! People that I know, even. But *I* couldn't do it- and I tried, honestly- so it's a little hard for me to wrap my head around.

War of the Coprophages
I feel kind of weird for liking this episode, because it's so obviously... I don't know; somehow I suspect it wasn't received all that well? I read a review of this episode that seemed to think it was a sort of bird-flipping toward the fans. And some of the jokes are 'ha ha, Mulder brushes off Scully' which is annoying. But I have a fondness anyway. I like that Scully gets to be kind of right about things. I think I'm just predisposed to like episodes with bugs.

And predisposed to dislike episodes about evil teenage girls. Meh. This episode just annoyed me the whole way through- Mulder being totally passive-aggressive and Scully being snotty. (Although frankly, I could kind of feel her. I get a little snippy around the more woo-prone members of my family sometimes.)
This episode's an excellent example of *why* I tend to dislike canon romance, because although I *guess* you could read Scully's jerkishness towards White as something other than jealousy, it feels pretty obvious that that's what it was *supposed* to be, and it's just very unattractive. I know that their behavior was affected by the positioning of the planets like the astrologist lady said, etc etc, but it doesn't make it any more fun to watch. (Also, did they explain Mulder's weird sniffing thing?) I give this one a resounding "Fine. Whatever."

Good creepy episode. I liked the music. Is it wrong that I still twitch a little watching art destroyed, even when that art is housing a dead body? Those gargoyles were really good!
