Review - The X-Files Season 2 Episode 15 Fresh Bones

Continuing from "Die Hand Die Verletzt," "Fresh Bones" is another scary episode with vivid imagery. That's pretty much all that's good about the episode. It gets weighed down by various plot threads which never come together. There's the main Haitian voodoo thing, the military guy killing people, and X randomly showing up to tell Mulder that the government wants to get rid of everything. The soldier who is supposedly killed in the beginning of the episode and his wife are pretty much forgotten by the end of the episode.

It's annoying when there are good ideas in the episode and then everything meanders off in too many directions, but Howard Gordon went that direction.

One thing that caught my attention was the Haitian boy who is revealed to have died 6 days ago, making him a zombie. It's the same guy that plays the one-note character Greer on Stargate Universe.

Score: 8.3/10
