Re: EpDis: Crusade: Visitors From Down The Street

Well, that was weird Ö But, itís kind of cute.

Although I agree with KoshN that the alien head prosthetics werenít so great, I think the costume department still did a great job on this episode, because I could tell that those two aliens were supposed to be Mulder and Scully before anyone even said anything.

This sort of joke/homage episode seems like something you would see on a show in a later season, it seems kind of risky to do something like that pretty early in season 1. But, as I said, itís kind of cute. I laughed pretty hard when the alien Mulder pulled out that picture of their version of Roswell with the cute smiling human waving hello. I donít think this sort of thing would have worked on Babylon 5, but the tone of Crusade is clearly very different and it works here.

On the actual X Files, Mulder and Scully are always a team. This was more the Mulder show with Scully as a sidekick. I guess the budget only allowed for one actor with a lot of lines, not two Ö

I again liked the little bit of background information about telepaths and the new post-Psi Corps rules that we get from the dialog between the Captain and Matheson.
