I’m ... not liking it. Perhaps that’s too strong. It’s “meh”.

Last night’s episode, which I’m seeing glowing reviews for, just didn’t do it for me. The comic timing was a beat off, there was too much “Hurr-durr, I is old and can’t understand these new-fangled gadgets” (and I speak as someone who doesn’t have a cell-phone).

At least Scully didn’t look like she had gas in this episode.

I didn’t find the guest star funny, although his part as the lizard-man, Guy Mann is described as “brilliant” in one review.

There are many, many clever bits (the names on the gravestones), and I did chuckle several times, but overall it’s not gelling for me.

ETA: that’s not even looking at the jokes involving the trans* woman character.
