A great show gets going,
This review is from: The X Files: Season 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
The X-Files gets properly underway with season 2, with a good mix of stand-alone episodes and some solid contributions to the emerging `mythology'. The closure of the X-Files section at the end of season 1 lasts some way into the season, and makes for some interesting changes in the way the agents get to work together. We meet Mulder's new informant `X', and the duplicitous Alex Krycek. A.D. Skinner and The Cigarette-Smoking Man get bigger roles.
The show feels more confident - we have stories spread over more than one episode for the first time, and signs of a lighter, self-referential mood from writer Darin Morgan in `Humbug'. Although I don't rate this season as highly as some subsequent ones, it's still very good indeed.

Episodes I remember not liking, but enjoyed this time round:
Soft Light, `3'
Little Green Men - worth seeing for the scenes between Mulder & Scully, but actually quite disappointing.
