Last ep. (4) was so brilliant, but, unfortunatly, ppl will not understand it, i like this new episodes even better then the ones from old series ( i was a true fan ), but , i guess, i grew older as the characters did, different things important now i guess.
I'm bummed I thought for sure the 6 episodes were going to be 6 kick ass episodes the 1st 3 were great just like before these past 2 was disappointing.. The last one is supposed to go back and wrap up what the 1st 3 was about and hopefully its a 2hr season finale cuz they need more then a hr to wrap up what the 1st 3 was about... I'm watching any way because well its the X-Files and back then it was my absolute FAVORITE show and when I found out it was coming back on I was like a little kid... So excited and counting dwn the months,weeks and days for the return.. So yeah on that note I'm disappointed BUT still a faithful X-Files fan!!
Back when it first aired I would schedule my Friday nights around this show if people wanted to go out and party, it would have to be after 10pm LOL back then there where no DVR's. Now I schedule my Monday nights around this show, even with a DVR I prefer to watch it during it's regularly scheduled time. I truly hope they go beyond six episodes.
The first 2 episodes were rock solid - 9 or better. The third was a 12 year old boy's silly fantasy, and the 4th just a gore fest with only the thinnest contribution to the series storyline. Don't you guys have any adult supervision? For Godsake buy a vowell! You've got tons of great current and recent series - Gotham, Homeland, Justified, Blacklist, etc. have an edgy storyline that binds the show from week to week. If you don't manage the horizon line and just let/want an adolescent fantasy puke all over the screen, bouncing between goofball, and revolting, interspersed with an occasional tight, great show, X Files will have a very short run. You've proved good/great is possible. Please hold writers responsible!!
The opening credits were a real trip down memory lane, I had forgotten how creepy and unique the music was and it was great that they kept the original sequence younger selves and all. Duchovny and Anderson still have great "on screen" chemistry and the stories retain the entertaining creep factor of the original series. Really looking forward to seeing the next 6 episodes and hopefully, maybe we will get more?! Would love to see a Toombs 2.0, that character freaked me the hell out!
Just like Anton Spelec I too was chasing girls in 1993, as I was 16 years old. I used to see it periodically when I watched TV which wasn't much back then but in 2005-2006 I started to watch it on TV as I was a bit older and had just had major spinal fusion surgery. So I went out and bought the 1st season on DVD and lets just say the binge watching began. I ended up buying and watching every season and both movies as the show became my favorite of all time. Even today my wife and kids call the X-Files, 'old faithful", for me as every few months when I've watched everything interesting on Netflix and Hulu and plopped in my old X-Files DVD's and binge watch all the seasons again with the movies going in where they belong. I just hope after the 6 episodes they are airing now that it gets picked up again for a LOOONG run.
Back when I was little, my bedtime was 8 o'clock, and the show started at 9:00 pm. I would crawl through the hallway, all the way to the living room, and my daddy would let me watch it from behind the couch, so that my mother wouldn't catch me. She also didn't want to let a 6 year old watch a show about aliens. It is one of the most wonderful memories I have of my childhood and of my father. This show will always hold a very special place in my heart.
The X-files is such a special unforgettable TV classic, I can't even begin to describe what I think and feel about this show. The incomparable David Duchovny plays the lead. The show also has an enormous sentimental value for me because I started watching it as I went to college. The X-Files became such a huge success because of the excellent ensemble of actors and superb writing. Even though this is a fiction TV show, the way it portrays the government is very true to life.
Grew up watching with my dad on sunday nights. So I had some nostalgia going into re-watching the show. There are so many gold episodes that make this one of the great shows of all time. On the flip side, beginning in the 5th season, the series really starts to become hit or miss. The monster of the week episodes that make the first few seasons great, start to become repetitive and drag, making you really only care about the anthology episodes. By the time the second half of the 7th season rolls around, it starts to make you miss the old ones. Dogget is interesting for a little, but the show was about Mulder and they should not have kept making them. They should have saved the "Closure" arch for the end of the 7th season and called it quits. Everything is solved by that point. The smoking man, the tests, his sister, the program. The rest is hogwash. So In my opinion you can rank the seasons as followed: 3 4 2 5 1 7 6 8 9
i initially wrote the critical review of the series "one of the most overrated series of all time", i admit i was unfairly harsh toward the x-files with my first experience, a little voice inside of me kept whispering for me to go back and give it another chance, and so i eventually went back and watched the entire thing and both movies.
while i still do agree with my point about it being overrated in the context of people ranking it with perfect scores and saying it's the best ever, in that context i do think it's very overrated (because of the hype, etc) but upon my revisiting experience i did have a much more enjoyable experience and appreciated it alot more on my second attempt.. i just wanted to come on here and admit i was wrong in alot of what i said.. i still had to skip some episodes because alot of the "monsters of the week" i wasn't feeling but overall i did greatly enjoy my experience and have a new found respect/appreciation for the series. anyway, glad i didn't give up on it and gave it another chance.
(it is the same person btw.. i forgot my password and using facebook login)
anyway, that happens sometimes when you first experience something and it doesn't go well but then you revisit it later with a different mindset and different perspective and things change. so, my apologies to all x-file fans and everyone who worked on the x-files. -humble, new fan. :D
I am not gonna say that i like this show because of Moulder or Scully, I am not going to say I like this show because of the creepiest, weirdest, strangest stories ever, I am not going to say I like this show thanks to the fact that I have always believed in aliens, no, not any of those reasons. The main reason would have to be that this show is a work of art, every single detail is well crafted and something supernatural comes out of all this, something that captures you and wont let you go, something that kept me for many seasons begging for more.
The X-Files is quintessential viewing for any Sci-Fi and mystery geek. It started off slow with mild conspiracy theory. Later as the show progressed past the mobster of the week stories the conspiracy grew and at tines dragged the show down. Fortunately this was corrected, albeit slowly and the continued on a steady pace that can't be ignored.
