2 Philes and a Newborn

The mid season one episodes are full of amazing writing, directing and acting from some major talents. While none of the first nine were misses, not all were hits for me. But Episodes 10-15 are just PRICELESS and FLAWLESS (Except MAYBE for that brief Mulder whatever moment at end of Lazarus WTF? lol)
