The title of this episode is a palindrome. MADAM I M ADAM
an interesting topic

This episode has an interesting main topic but I don't like the end.
The episode opens exactly on the kind of way a bad episode of The X-Files from season 6 or 7 would. Visually, nothing is interesting, everything is pale and flat and uninteresting. This is the flatness of the 2000's in autopilot mode. The episode asks the audience, "where do you think this person is from?" Obviously, he's not been abducted by aliens, since he's saying it from the start.
So, instead of watching Mulder and Scully doing a proper investigation, we just get uninteresting characters doing uninteresting things, with uninteresting music and uninteresting dialogue.
Once again, this is a totally pointless exercise. Art is about communicating something. Even if the aim is to communicate nothing. But here, we feel that all the producers are trying to insert a cube into a sphere. It doesn't fit, won't fit and will ultimately fail.
A very bad episode. I give it 2 out of 10.
