Yes - and Reyes appeared in the season 11 premiere episode.
I noticed! What I mean, weren't there episodes towards the end which were Mulder and Scully free?
I think the whole of series 9 was like that and it was dreadful. They even had an episode called Jumping the Shark.
Scully was always about, if only for a couple of scenes in a particular episode. It was David Duchovny who left the show.
Wasn't that the episode where they killed off The Lone Gunmen? Then brought them back somehow in the comeback season?
They had their own show briefly. I want it back.
So many spoilers . . . said the on-off fan, who recently made it to the end of Series Three.
That took over twenty years!
I guess I'm not exactly a hardcore fanboy.
I just want to point out I deliberately left that detail out of my post even though it is the reason I remember that episode!
Yes. Outrageous. I am still quite angry about it even though it is only a TV show! It was like a big F U from the producers to the fans.
They didn't bring them back to life or anything in the comeback but I don't think I would actually have minded too much if TLG had woken up in the shower and found series 9 was all a dream..
It was intended as a wrap up to the cancelled Lone Gunmen show much as the Millennium crossover with Lance Henriksen had been - but the Millennium episode didn't kill off Frank Black (though it did see him uncharacteristically battling zombies).
Such a strange decision, they were fan favourite characters, were we supposed to cry or something?
I think we were just meant to stop watching so they didn't have to think about how to end it. At least that's the way the evidence points.
All this political intrigue, incomprehensible doomsday scenarios and multiple plot tomfoolery, bah. Hard to follow and to much like a cheap action flick. 1st episode of the new season was a bitter disappointment.
Lets get back on track with a good old monster, beasty or supernatural-paranormal phenomena. Personal favorites: the sewer-mutant, the Peacock family "home", the bug-man hiding in plain sight, the lake monster, etc..
That new episode had me remembering why I stopped watching it.
I keep hearing "What a tweest!" in my head.
The 'ever dream this man' man in the X-files
The latest episode - still not great, but way better than the dire season opener.
I thought Jumping The Shark was a good send-off for the Gunmen. It showed they weren't just forgotten and got the chance to go out like heroes.
This newest season has me baffled though.
The episode with the man/lizard freaked me out ,good twist on the man turns into Wolf/Bat/Were Rabitt, tale
Channel 5 are showing quick cryptic ads for the X-files, seems to tease a date... mid Feb?
Just watched the opener on Channel 5.
It is a series of still images projected in such a way as to replicate the illusion of movement. Accompanied by a script and narrative equally illusory in terms of narrative and plot.
Conspiracy Theories are cannon-fired out by the actors in a ‘Me Next’ style of tripping over their lines.
Can’t say I’m engrossed thus far.
I watched the first episode.
Can't believe they used the Bobby Ewing Shower Gambit, what a cop out. Hit the reset button, why don't you? Still, Smoking Man is good fun as a hissable villain. It is has been disappearing up its own conspiracy theory fundament since the first time around, though.
You'll have to hold out until the fourth installment to get a classic one-shot all-in-one episode. In the mean time, there's a lot of contextual bulldozing - enough to make one suspect they've decided to execute a tectonic re-direction in this 11th season.
Do you know how many episodes we get this season? Is it another short one?
The original plan was for 10 episodes, and I haven't seen anything to contradict that prospect ...
OK, a few more than last time, and plenty of room to improve.
Enjoyed Ep2 more, nice rapport between M&S, sort of brought back the Lone Gunmen in a way that didn't feel like a total cheat. Barbara Hershey seems to be a substitute for John Neville.
You actually managed to stay awake through it?
Me too, it was much better than the rather inauspicious start which seemed to combine all the worst excesses of vanishing up its own arse.
It's Stranger Things that makes me doze... it's a wonder I'm able to follow it.
