Mulders mushroom trip is one of the shows funniest moments. Episode 5

That wasn't just the worst episode of the revival - it was the worst episode ever. That was distasteful, fist-pumping garbage.

A lot of people online are saying it's the worst episode ever.

Trying to do too much and be preachy on terrorism I suppose

The terrorism stuff was so ridiculously on the nose.

It was awful on multiple levels. I had a few good chuckles, but it was awful.

I was appalled to see those annoying agents pop up in the preview for the finale.

I've seen a few people suggest they're being set up to be the "new" Mulder and Scully for a continued run, but holy shit, what a stupid idea that would be. Why bring in clones of Mulder and Scully to replace them? I'd say it's never going to happen, but why else would they be in the finale?

Ugh.

At least the Lone Gunmen cameo was a hallucination, not "Oh surprise, we're not really dead" thing.

I think the demand will be high for more episodes after this 6-episode run. The ratings have been sky high. I don't think next week will be the definitive end.

I think it's a bigger question of Anderson's/Duchovny's availability and/or willingness to do future episodes. Which brings up the theory of "new agents," which would be a terrible idea.

I suppose it might not be too hard to do more mini-seasons a few years apart. But still. LET IT FUCKING DIE, CHRIS CARTER YOU BASTARD.

.
With the big ratings I'm sure they will dangle an even bigger carrot in front of them.

The X-Files is back for a 6-episode series

I've maybe seen half a dozen episodes of X-Files, but I've been endlessly fascinated by the responses to this new season. The last episode sounds like a shark jump of the highest order.

Uuughh tone seemed way off. It's the endgame but had the dread of normal episode of Fringe. X-Files is supposed to scare the shit out of you. The plague to end all plagues deserved much better. As I predicted the door is left open for more.

First 3 episodes of the 6 were great.

X-Files did gives us Vince Gilligan and he's still in his prime on Monday Nights.

Have to say that the episode redeemed the first one a bit for me. Not as bad as others are saying. I think the season as a whole suffered for the shortened run, and they didn't work it out properly. Episodes one and six would have been better if they spread the info over two parts each. They could have abandoned episode 5 as a result. It was a festering turd. 2 and 3 were the highlights for me, 6, then 1. 4 was a standard MOTW, 5 was an abortion.

The product placement deal with Ford was too much, hitting a low point when we saw Scully arriving at the office at the beginning of the episode and getting her very small briefcase out of the otherwise completely empty back of her vehicle (cause yeah it wouldn't fit on the seat beside her) so we could watch the automatic rear door close.

Was watching the time tick away and knew they'd either resolve the outbreak way too quickly and easily or worse, leave it as a cliffhanger...sure enough Stallone on a mountain.

Don't like Agent Einstein at all and they gave her far too prominent a role in this episode. Miller I didn't mind.

The writing could have been better but im still a fan for nostalgia's sake at least. I actually enjoyed this but i do agree it wasn't what i had remembered. I do hope they give it another go.
