Cigarette Smoking Man: My name is Carl Gerhard Busch. But I've been known by many aliases during my long career with the U.S. government. It's been a humbling job, though I'm hardly known as a humble man. I've been a witness to history, much of it violent, much of it an abomination of the values Americans hold dear.

I became addicted to the X-Files one night, on 10/01/1993, when "Conduit" first aired, and when Scully climbed the stairs and saw that the hand drawn binary papers, laid out on the floor, made a picture of the missing girl, Ruby. Nothing on tv was that interesting and the background music was movie quality.

I fear that "My Struggle III" will draw negative reviews. I thought it was interesting but quickly realized that there have been so many copy cat shows (of the X-Files), since 1993.

If you're not a fan of last night's episode (and you never saw season 1) purchase season 1 used from amazon and watch the first four episodes. I will make you see "My Struggle III" with a different perspective.

Thank you Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson and David D.
