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

the next mind-bending chapter is coming! | The X-Files on Fox

My first pop culture obsession. And my only true pop culture heartbreak, due to how much damage was done in those last three seasons.

Let's hope for the best! The second movie was not good. The last three seasons were pretty much (with varying degrees) a disaster. But there is always that chemistry between the two leads which always makes it watchable and the fact that Carter really should have learned from his mistakes by now.

So far it is not sure if it will be a mythology or a MOTW show or a mix of the two. Gillian Anderson mentioned in a recent interview that writers like Howard Gordon and Vince Gilligan (!) might be back. I for one am keeping my fingers crossed that Gilligan will have a chance to write one solo script. His MOTW episodes were fantastic and nobody could write Mulder/Scully banter as well as he did. Speaking of which, I really hope Darin Morgan is back too. Hopefully it's not going to be a solo Carter thing.

The mythology was so ruined by the end I have no idea how they might fix up the mess. But I shall remain cautiously optimistic. It feels surreal that both this and Twin Peaks, my two favourite shows along with The Wire, are back.

This is me as well. (My first TV obsession, anyway. My first true pop culture obsession was Duran Duran. ha!)

Although I liked good chunks of season 7, and even season 8 had some bright spots - I liked Doggett. Let's not talk about season 9 or the whole baby arc, though.

And after the disaster that was the second movie, I kind of wish they'd just let it die.

Season 7 was more painfully dull and not as embarrassing as what came afterwards. However, the resolution to one of the most important storylines that came in the middle of the season was horrendously stupid, which is the main reason I tend to count that season among the disastrous ones as well. Not to mention that ending.

As far as Doggett goes, I thought the character was a two-dimensional cliche that could have come out of any cop show (they literally have a scene with him at home cleaning his gun), although I like Robert Patrick as an actor. He tried his best with the ridiculous writing.

It all depends on the writing staff. If it's all Carter, it's going to be very difficult to look forward to this.

I sure hope this new series is politically insightful.

Love the unbuttoned shirt giving us a glimpse of that chest. That time at the gym paid off!

Love Seasons 1-6 and can't even remotely tolerate what came later. I guarantee that this will be good since it's a small episode order and that will give everyone involved the time necessary to be at the top of their game.

They should make a crossover episode with Twin Peaks.

They should make a crossover episode with Crossing Over with John Edward.

Gillian instagrammed a picture with her newly-dyed red hair.

And just in time. That white-blonde hair was not a good look. (Not that she's never gorgeous.)
