Wow, this season premiere was really horrible. I guess the last season is like... retconned entirely away? Or something?

So many boring car chases and people talking in circles.

From my understanding this has something to do with the multi-verse coming into play. Seriously. That's what the trailers indicated... That's why it's so bloody confusing. And now William has psychic powers?

I loved it when Skinner was like "Look! It's morse code!" *lol* And that doctor was like "I've seen some weird *(&%(* man working at this hospital...."

Actually after watching this episode myself I must say it was not that bad.
Certainly better than mythology episodes from past season. Though weird camera work and editing were in abundance.
Story doesn't make much sense, but what do you want from something that was running for more than a decade.

Finally caught up on the first episode of Season 11. It definitely helps if you watch the last episode of Season 10 immediately before. Some moments of the show felt like a parody of itself but all in all I found it pretty enjoyable, but then again I'm an X-Files slut. This pretty much sums up my philosophy regarding the show, so I'm not overly critical of it.

I do think that if some episodes of the series were erased from continuity the overarching alien/not-alien conspiracy plot would work a little better, but I'd have to do a complete rewatch to figure out which.

Teaser for S11E2, premiering tomorrow

Gillian Anderson confirms she's really, really done with X-Files after this.

I almost wonder if something happened on the set?

Saw latest episode. Apparently Trump colluding with Russia, to a point where Trump is actively employing private Russian security outfits to go and attack people is canon in the X-Files.

I did like that there is tensions between the FBI and the White House... that, I buy.

OK, this week's episode was actually really, really good. I loved it. It's the kind of episode I would've loved last season. Or any season.

Hilarious.

This was a very weird episode.
I like it, kind of, but it felt like agents were just there and events had happened beside from them.

Last few episodes after the second one, were very good.
Unexpected level of quality after the past season.

I'm gonna miss Scully. It won't be X-Files without her. #imwithher

Latest episode is rubbish. Chemtrails? That's being legitimized in the X-Files world now, right along with Trump's Russian strike forces? Ugh.

I also thought for sure this would be the first episode to feature a monster. Not so. Another fakeout on that front, like the last episode. We're already over halfway done with the season (which is very likely the last time we'll ever see any more X-Files of any kind), c'mon, folks.

I'm all the way caught up and, unless tonight's new episode has one, there has yet to be a "Monster of the Week" episode this season. Just two FAKE ones.

How many eps do we get in total this time?

10. Last season was 6.

Sounds like there is a 99% chance this will be the last X-Files we'll ever see. Gillian won't do any more, Carter won't do more without her, Carter thinks there can be more movies (there won't be... like 15 years and they only got enough money to do the super cheapo "I Want to Believe").

That last movie was a disappointment, I was so hyped the x-files was getting a movie years after finishing and then I was just sat staring at the screen afterwards thinking 'what?'
Too bad about Anderson, wonder what happened there, she was hyped over the last season. Could have just gotten old for her or she just doesn't have time maybe.

They really should have put everything into a 2012 X-Files movie. Everything in the show was building toward that and we ended up getting f***-all about it. Just a lame, "Oh, I guess it was delayed" thing in the last season of the new X-Files.

Seems like some untold behind the scenes story with this season. Or she didn't like the stories this season/where they took Scully.
