I love well-done sci-fi shows. BSG (the first few seasons anyway), firefly, dollhouse, etc... were all fantastic shows imho. I got into the X-Files thinking that I would immediately love it, however, about a dozen episodes into Season 1, I am not enjoying it as much as I thought I would.
There is a certain lack of consistency in the "rules" of the universe of the show that really bugs me. It almost feels like the show is suffering from mild "Lost" syndrome, where the writers are just making stuff up as they go along, without an explanation even in their own minds. That's okay for some viewers, but for me (if that's what is really going on) that is a show-stopper. Scully is also really silly: she claims to be rational and scientific, but a truly rational and scientific mind that has seen the things that she has seen would start "believing" in a hurry. To me it seems that she is not a "skeptic", but simply a willful idiot.
Also, most of the episodes in general so far seem to just be a little silly in general, from the acting to the plots (although there have been a few really great ones, like the one in the Arctic with the sort-of-zombie alien parasite).
I know that the Scully thing won't go away, and that she'll continue acting and thinking that way throughout season after season of contrary evidence. My question, however, is if my other gripes with the show get better as the show progresses? Or will I never enjoy it? I want to like it but am considering moving on to a different show if the show stays like this much longer :/
