If I had to grade this mini-series it would be a B-.

The 6 episodes were ultimately the downfall of the return. Trying to fit all the themes from the original 9 season run into 6 hours had the series feeling disjointed.

Episodes 2 and 3 had me feeling very optimistic, it felt like classic X-Files, but the the mythology and episodes 4 and 5 were missing the heart.

Also the "finale". How are you going to change the opening tagline of The Truth is Out There to This is the End and leave the episode on a cliffhanger? Classic Chris Carter right there mean.gif

Last night was such a cock tease. The whole 6 part series should've been on that conspiracy.

LMAO this "mini-series" was horrible


If I had to grade this mini-series it would be a Z-.


Dude from the writing, corny zingers, bad casting, mixed between all the random **** thats going on.....this was a cluster ****.


The pace of the shows were too fast too, had that generic NCIS/Law and order feel....the overly cheesy background music, dramatic zoom ins/camera angles....just wrong man.


This **** is rocky V status man, this **** doesn't even count to me.

as an avid x-files fan, IM PISSED.


I was reading an article the other day saying that FOX is interested in renewing the series for another "season" but Gillian Anderson and Dave Duchovny are not biting....and after seeing these 6 episodes I understand why.


the were-monster was easily the best episode and that aint saying much....


wow fox strikes again.

I think they're gonna try it with Agent Einstein and the other guy.

Both of them are cheap knockoffs of Molder and Scully.

Im sorry, but the name "Agent Einstein" is soo uninspired mean.gif

Completely agree there.  I keep saying this, but 6 is still little for a "reboot" especially given how there are so many sides to The X-Files... conspiracy, serious MOTW, comedic MOTW, etc... plus there was too little use of Skinner and CSM, IMO.  But understandable given only conspiracy 2 episodes.

 

Overall, while I enjoyed the reboot, it did end a bit weak.  Weakest episode out of the 6.  Oh well... keeps the door open for more.

They couldn't though... so many of the best-episodes were MOTW.  It wouldn't have been in the spirit of the show.

I can't stand her.  I get that she's trying to be the "rational" one, but she just comes off as annoying.

As a fan of the original series, until it got off track toward the end, I think this mini-series, especially the conspiracy stuff was lazy and the goofy episodes not dealing with the conspiracy were pure filler.

In the years after X-Files originally aired, I looked into various conspiracy theories. I'm sure a lot of the fans did. I felt like all this show did was take a few of them, not dig deep and then wrote a story on some surface bs that they thought would appeal to everyone. But in an age where we can all dig deeper with a few mouse clicks, some discernment and some focus, this comeback felt like a quick scrolling through headlines and first paragraphs of the bigger name conspiracy sites. And most of that is obviously backed by big money to keep us focused on the wrong thing and get ridiculed if you ever bring it up in a serious discussion.

I should've known better. I wasn't looking for answers about anything real in this show, but I did at least expect some fresh ideas. The whole aliens and illuminati thing have become goofy when that's the entire scope of a person's thoughts on "the truth". The alien DNA thing could've gone so many ways, but the fact that they made it a bad thing is pitiful. But that's a whole other topic. I'm good on the show moving forward. I was honestly hoping that triangle was gonna blow them up. That's how it should end. Set that garbage on fire.

Our TV network here will start airing "20 essential episodes selected by Chris Carter" this week.  

Pretty excited to see which 20 it'll be... all in glorious HD too! 

 

Maybe there's a list out there already, but I look forward to finding out one by one. 😅

FOX REVIVES 'THE X-FILES' ... AGAIN

APRIL 20, 2017, 4:21 P.M.

The truth is out there and it's this: Fox is re-resurrecting "The X-Files." 

Following last year's successful revival, the network announced Thursday that it has ordered a second chapter to "The X-Files" event series.

Stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will once again reprise their roles as Dana Scully and Fox Mulder for the 10-episode installment, which will again be executive produced by creator Chris Carter. 

"Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of 'The X-Files,' " said David Madden, president of Fox Broadcasting Co., in a statement. 

"The X-Files," which ran for nine seasons from 1993 through 2001 in its initial run, was revived as a six-episode event series last year. It drew an average of 16 million viewers across multiple platforms. 

Production on the next chapter in the event series will begin this summer, and the series is slated to air during the 2017-18 season.

While the reboot probably wasn't as good as it could have been, I enjoyed it... and am glad there are more coming!

How was the last season of the show? Worth watching?

post #262 of 268

Yea I enjoyed the last season. Short but was a good watch

post #263 of 268
Please get Vince Gilligan to write and direct some episodes this time around. The weakest ones last year were written and/or by Chris Carter, and he was involved in half of the six.
