Storyline

Mulder and Scully are eating at an all night sushi restaurant, when Mulder walks into the kitchen to see the robots running the kitchen, an AI seems to run it all. When Mulder returns to his seat, Scully gets ready to pay, Mulder insists on buying and while paying one of the screens requests if they would like to tip the staff, which Mulder declines. The AI won't release his credit card. What follows is a slapstick of one misadventures after another until their lives are threatened as the AI is dropping not so subtle hints! Will Mulder and Scully learn from the AI or will it be too late? Written by Movie Dude

Finally using their powers for good.
4 March 2018 | by Patric7See all my reviews

I wasn't going to start watching the new X Files because I was so tired of the government cover up/conspiracy/truth hiding crap that is partly responsible for the dysfunctional mess the US is in today. But this episode was good because it took AI and robotics, added a healthy dose of humour (like the "Forehead Sweat" episode) and gave us a warning tale of the dangers of automation that the makers of the "Twilight Zone" could only dream of. The seized debit card must be every consumer's nightmare. And the ending, while half telegraphed, was very satisfying. I hope Chris Carter continues in this vein. Somewhere Rod Serling is smiling.
