DARIN MORGAN, AGAIN
|| One of the best episodes ever
Written by Jack Anderson on 2017-09-07
After the perfect masterpiece "Humbug", Darin Morgan wrote yet again another brilliant episode. More than this, the script from "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" is simply outstanding. It is highly intelligent and even though very funny, it is not a comedy episode. The theme is extremely sad and even philosophical.
Also, after "Humbug", Darin Morgan had the chance to have yet one of the best three directors from the series directing his second episode. After Kim Manners in "Humbug", David Nutter has done a stupendous (pun intended) job in "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose".
The lights in this episodes are majestic. Whether in the forest (insanely beautiful) or in the hotel kitchen, this was a marvellous work.
MULDER VS SCULLY
Yet again, like in "Humbug", Mulder is, even though not acting weird, on the side, while Dana Scully is much more connected to the investigation. She doesn't understand it better, she is truly connected to it.
I give this episode 10 out of 10. A true timeless perfect masterpiece. One of the top 10 episodes for sure.
Humor and original ideas are melted to create un marvellous moving episode, here again the guest star peter boyle is really a fantastic actor, and the scenes between M, S and him are so interesting.
The killer doesn't look like a usual suspect and I would have known him better.
The end is sad but expected, and we are about to share a short life with Queequeg.
As often, thank you Darin Morgan to extend the lines of our series till new horizons.
