X-Files returning again...

yep...that's right folks. We're getting another season. This time Mulder and Scully are back for 10 eps! Filming starts this summer for either a fall or winter run.

The X-Files was pretty great but there were a lot of missteps. The longer it went on the worse it got, I know I don't even have to go into the seasons where Mulder and Scully are just guest-stars. The way that what started out as such a simple story became so convoluted is frustrating, but I guess it's understandable given how many seasons the show ended up doing.

I'll give another season a shot, but I'm totally going to skip any episodes that tie-into the overarching plot. Just give me a monster-of-the-week and I'm happy.

There was only one season where they were guest-stars... season 9. Mulder left at end of 7, end Scully was a main through all of 8.

I think it's sort of the Lost thing where they really didn't have a full plan to start with and sort of just kept making it up as they went.

I'm sure it'll structurally be like the 6 episode season 10. First and last episode are about the alien conspiracy plot, the rest are all monster-of-the-week type stuff.

I marathoned X-Files before season 10 came out and it does indeed start getting worse, at least the mythology episodes, they kept making stuff up as they went and not cool stuff. The show had already jumped the shark way before the new agents showed up or Mulder left. It's a shame too since so much could've been done with the concept, hell I was surprised you actually see the flippin aliens in the first episode.

I still love the show with all its faults and while I haven't seen season 10 I want more X-Files. It's really something hard to remake, it came out at the right time. I would still love if they made a new series with Mulder and Scully passing the torch as was speculated when we first heard rumors for season 10.

Smoking man rocks.

You know what's highly underrated? The Lone Gunmen TV show that lasted 1 season. Really good.

Yeah, I really like that show. It had a different vibe to it, but it still had a bit of an edge, and it was well written. I was disappointed when they whacked those guys in the final season of the X-Files.

I'm watching them all now. It does get worse, but I was surprised at how long it took to get good. Most of season 1 is pretty wonky.

I think some episodes are good in Season 10 but mostly it was indeed lackluster and non-intriguing. Which is a pity because I really enjoy their early stuff.

For Season 11 they just need new modern writers (maybe someone from Riverdale or 13 Reasons Why, those are good).

Sure sounds like they're back in Season 11. If the CSM can come back to life after being reduced to a skeleton on-screen, anybody can.

Makes me wonder if in 2030 we'll see another season of Supernatural.

...assuming it's wrapped by then in the first place.
