Fox: The X-Files

Seem like I'm about 23 years behind on this one?

(Jesus, 23 years?!)

Apparently not. Fox is in talks with Chris Carter to bring it back, including having David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise Scully and Mulder. Nothing creative yet, just seeing how schedules line up, but still...

Also having (unrelated of course) talks about bringing back Prison Break and running a Kiefer-free version of 24 (not sure how that would work; he was that snow).

Started re-watching the series. Actually has been a few years, on purpose. Just finished Redux, and Redux II. What a hell of a 3 episode arch those are.
Just reached that point in season 4 myself. Watching Gethsemane. Just finished Tempus Fugit and Max, the plane crash two-parter. That was also good stuff.

Complete opposite for me. I skip the MotW episodes and just watch the alien arc episodes. I don't think it starts to unravel until around the end of season 7, when Mulder is finally abducted. I don't remember much of the mythology from seasons 8 and 9, although I do remember hating the finale. But as much as I liked Robert Patrick as an actor, the show fell apart when Duchovny went part time and he took over.

Just wanted to pop in here & say thanks to Netflix I'm addicted to the X-Files. I was a kid during the original run but am about halfway through S1 and I'm hooked. I'm hoping to just watch the series all the way through but that might take awhile (and it sounds like I should just avoid the movies).

Hope the new episodes are as good as the ones I'm watching.

If you like the alien conspiracy story line, you should like the movie.


I'm in the minority, but I think the second movie was pretty good. I think a lot of people were expecting another alien plot and were disappointed. I don't have any faith in the shows creators to "fix" the alien conspiracy story, so I was more than happy when they ignored it.

I thought the second movie was terrible. But just because it was bad. I'd have been fine with non-mythology if it had been a good movie.

As I recall, only the first and last episodes of the new season are mythology, so it's going to mostly be motw. And they're changing up the mythology in some way.

Perfect time for the show to come back, in any case. Government mistrust at an all time high and we all know we're being watched by shadowy figures 24/7.

Yes, even as a stand-alone episode, that plot was horrible. How they spent that much time away and came up with that is one of the things in life that truly, truly, makes you wonder how people are in charge of things and you are not.

Also, to piggyback off your other post, I agree that season 6 is INCREDIBLY underrated. It is 7, imho, that the ship starts going off course. 6 gets lumped in due partially to being filmed in LA, and having the feel of 7-9. Oh and the Diana Fowley disaster. But mythology and MOW are all there in 6. Triangle and Arcadia are two of my all-time favorites. Just the pacing and filming of Triangle, plot aside, is gold. Drive, SR 819, the Unnatural. I could go on.

Two Fathers and One Son is the near culmination of the Mytharc, and are fantastic. The problem is that with the end of One Son, the difficulty in continuing the mythology becomes hard to overcome. Couple that with Duchoveny leaving and the feel of Vancouver gone, it was a tough ask.

I don't think there is any debate that seasons 1-4 are pure gold. If you like 1, there is literally no way you won't love 2-4. 5-6 are also great imo, but opinions start to differ there. You should watch the movie Fight the Future, which happens after the season finale of 5, and before the season premiere of 6. Even if you don't love the movie, it's important for the plot.

Enjoy. I'm sure we would all love to relive seeing them for the first time. I watched them as a young teenager with my father and step-mother on the weekends. Quite literally was the first bridge after my parents divorce.

I loved the first three seasons. Season 2 is my favorite, but 3 is almost as good. Season 5 is my least favorite; "Folie Deux" being the only really good episode.

6 has some good stuff like "Monday" (which features the daughter of Carol Burnett and the son of Billy Drago) "Terms Of Endearment" (with Ash) and "Drive" (Heisenberg).

Seasons 7, 8, and 9 feature some solid, if not always spectacular, Monster of the Week episodes. I think those final seasons are underrated by a lot of the fans.

Oh, and I liked the plot of the second flick.

never watched this show religiously...just here and there. netflix has it all there...all 9 seasons...so the last few weeks I've been jumping on the treadmill, firing up an episode and walking until it's done.

I'm most of the way thru season 1....it's not bad...but it's not great either. but I'll get thru them all eventually. I think I'll DVR the new stuff and not watch it until I've gone thru the first 9 seasons...but we'll see.

to this point the biggest surprise to me is how YOUNG Scully looks. mulder too...but man Scully looks like a child. she's so much hotter in Hannibal.

Soooo...reviews are a universal 'it sucks'.

Hopefully it's not that bad, or at least there's something to like, but be prepared for the worst.

The reviews I've seen are that the first episode sucks, but the second and third ones are pretty good.

Gotta admit, I clapped when the theme song started. Skully is not as hot.
