New Weekly, April 19, 1999

Pick Of The Week
A strength of The X-Files is that it doesn't talk down to its audience, and tonigh's special episode is the first in a keep-your-fingers-on-the-pulse, two-part-rattler. The Cigarette Smoking Man (exquisitely played by William B Davis) features predominately, as the conspiracy theory that lifts the lid on The X-Files-a 50 year-old secret that has been kept under wraps from men like Fox Mulder by the Cigarette Smoking Man-comes to light. A beauty.

This Week on TV
The first of a two-part episode is supposed to reveal all the secrets regular viewers are dying to know. As usual, it ends up raising more questions than it answers. Simultaneously tantalising and frustrating.
