Re: The X- Files

I really enjoyed this comeback, flaws and all. For the first time, I preferred the monster of the week episodes rather than the mythology ones.

My main problem with the last episode is that I really hate all this goddamn cliffhangers.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: The X- Files

Unsurprisingly, it seems there will be more The X-Files episodes:

Re: The X- Files

I liked every episode that wasn't written by Chris Carter, so I'd be up for more.

Re: The X- Files

I thought the S11 mytharc opener was typically horrible. Those Chris Carter voice-overs make my skin crawl.

Looking forward to all the standalones by other writers.

Re: The X- Files

The X-Files should've ended way back at season 5, as was originally planned, with a movie to kind of put a bow on things. But money talks, as they say, and now here we are. As I'm sure it's already been said somewhere, Chris Carter is George Lucasing the hell out of The X-Files. The mythology episodes are a complete dumpster fire. The only episodes I care to see what they come up with are the monster-of-the-week non Chris Carter episodes. Even then I feel like David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are kinda mailing it in, just trying to make it thru this last season.

Re: The X- Files

The second episode was okay-ish. Nothing special, but it wasn't painful to watch like last week's. Next week's is written by Carter again, but the week after is from the brilliant Darin Morgan. I loved his S10 episode.
