I wonder if they're gonna touch on what happen last season - or will be like it never happen?

I hope they turf the monster of the week and "quirky" episodes this time... With such short seasons (compared to the original) they don't really have time to waste on pointless episodes, the series needs to be updated to modern TV story telling techniques rather than return to the old days IMO. A HBO-style (or Breaking Bad style, being the crossover in writing departments) deep and well written set of 10 episodes is what I am after.

Less than 2 weeks now. Don't watch if you don't want spoilers as there seems to be a few in there.

Considering how they ended that last season, I'm not surprised they did what they did in order to have a mostly "monster of the week" run of episodes this season.

Plus Gillian Anderson has said this will be her last season and Chris Carter says he doesn't want to do anymore without her so, with only 10 episodes, I think we know where this will be heading. It's gonna be a rushed job methinks.

In saying that, the strongest episodes last season were the "monster of week" episodes so we might still get a gem or two before the finale.

I watched it today but was so tired beforehand I was falling asleep while watching it. That didn't help and it made me confused but a lot of it felt weird and nonsensical anyway. I will have to watch it again

As for the episode, who follows another car then upon losing them doesn't notice the exact same car following them for several hours... across a couple of states? The whole car chase scene felt... cheap and forced. Their acting also felt forced, which is sad because they've always been able to make you believe.

Now that's better. Second episode was a big return to form for me and went back to the awesome dynamic that is Mulder and Scully. If we get 7 more episodes like this before another crappy mythology episode, I'll be super happy.

Love the bran muffin comments too.

Damn, its the exact opposite direction I hoped they would take it. For my tastes I would have preferred they update the series to modern TV writing, not be stuck in the past. The mytharc episodes suffer for being too rushed when compared to modern TV shows.

Supernatural does Monster of the Week about a billion times better than X-Files.. feels like a total waste of an episode to me

You guys are gonna hate the next 6 episodes then. It's more monster of the week ones.

I've just always enjoyed the interaction and chemistry between Mulder and Scully during the monster of the week episodes. It could be a shit monster as far as I'm concerned but it'll be a winner for me if Mulder and Scully are done well (which they were in this episode).

I'm half way through episode 4, just thought I'd stop in and mention how stupid this is..

I used to love X-Files, I enjoyed the last season, I don't know what's going on here but I think I'm pretty much done with this at this point, it's not worth my download limit or time (and I have unlimited downloads)

Edited to ad, I give up. Not even going to finish this episode.

Yeah, that was a pretty shit episode. For some stupid reason, there's a couple of episodes back in the day that are of a similar style where they don't take themselves seriously and the fans loved them... so they do the odd episode with the same tongue in cheek tone.

It kinda worked last season with that monster that turned into a human and we got the hilarious "I want to make you say cheese" line from Scully but this new episode just doesn't work. I'm not a fan of the non-serious episodes anyway.

I liked it. It was a nice play on the current trend of anything we don't like we just brand it as Fake... it's fake news!
