It'd be great to get another taste of Fox Mulder, however....
He had a great but tiny comedic role in Zoolander and showed what a great comedic actor he is.

People are dense.
I was The Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Grade 5. It was a great home-made costume my brother made for me; it took hours over a period of days. The candy just wasn't worth it and I never trick or treated again. Plus, there's all that fear they ingrain into you about potentially poisoned candy

oh wow, i forgot some of my fav monsters were killed. that's a damn shame.

too bad they ruined the whole samantha storyline. colony/end game was freakin fantastic. her return would've made an excellent movie!

that would be great though, if in some way all of the monsters came back...a la Godzilla's Revenge.

Yeah there's no doubt he's a funny guy. I used to adore his interviews. But...I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe the scripts just sucked. But boy did they suck.

I used to love the X-files, they were easily my favourite series, and that is something, since I am not into TV series at all. But after the ending I am not sure what to expect from the movie. I guess I'll just wait and see.

I thought he did well in an episode of Sex and the City, "Boy, Interrupted", that he guest starred on. He was cute, amiable, and fun with his usual dry wit. Should be interesting to see if this Californication is any good. I hate that name though. RHCP just ruined it for me.


I thought I read somewhere that David said any additional X-Files movies were going to be along the lines of the "monster-of-the-week" type episodes, and no more mythology stuff. I'm almost sure that's what he said.

i hope so! i prefer the motd over the mythology. i thought they really had something going with the whole conspiracy thing...then they just crapped all over it in the end.

I think with the conspiracy thing, it's just way too hard to sustain something like that over 9 years. When it was great, it was great. And I applaud the writers for keeping the conspiracy going and credible for as long as they did, even though it did get a bit much toward the end.


There's only so many times you can mine a vein before it dries up (e.g. "Friends" and the Ross - Rachel storylines). After a while, into a long series run, it's just like or

i suppose, but samantha's disappearance and "cover up" was the whole point of xfiles to begin with. it was why mulder did what he did. after they screwed upp that story, i really lost interest in the show. what's the point in keeping on with xfiles if she was just kidnapped by some sicko? it didn't make any sense with the little hints we were given throughout the other seasons. they had a great idea and screwed it up big time. imo the show was over after that.

it was always fun, learning more about the story, but not too much, you know? every few episodes somebody would drop references, and it was another piece of the puzzle. and the syndicate!!!! oooh remember well-manicured man? i can't believe CC just wrote them off!!!! what in the world??? everything he had built, he shat on and killed so he can create this bs mythology that i didn't buy and i thought didn't make much sense tied together with the rest of the story.

but...that's just my opinion. i guess i'm old school.

I will not be seeing this movie, despite having been a huge 'Phile back in the day. I'm too bitter about how badly the series got messed up over the last few seasons. It got so bad I couldn't even watch anymore. Chris Carter is not getting another penny from me, ever.

But that's what I thought was so great about it. I was so afraid it would end with Mulder opening up some pod and Samantha sleepily saying, "Fox? Is that you?"
This is more realistic and heart-breaking but beautiful, too, because they found some kind of dignity to the journey. The show's most powerful theme is about dealing with loss. That's what has resonated with me so much in my own life, when I've faced difficulties. I thought it was a beautiful ending to the most important aspect of the show.

Well, she did turn into starlight.

I LOVED Well-Manicured Man!!!! I was so bummed when they 86'd him in the movie.

I will admit that the last few seasons had a different flavor than the beginning of the show, but, as I've professed many times before, I LOVED Season 8. I thought it was really well done. Not as good as the early days but, IMO, much better than Seasons 7 or 9.

Season 1 = Good. Some hit and miss.
Season 2 = Very good. The show finding it's way and style.
Season 3 = Going from good to great, but still a couple clunker episodes in there.
Season 4 = THE best season. Pure PERFECTION from start to finish.
Season 5 = A bit of a let-down after the great Season 4. Kind of all over the place. Not tight or focused enough with the season's overall story arc.
Season 6 = Back in top form. One of my favorites
Season 7 = Meh. Starting to decline. Too much of the "same 'ol, same 'ol". Definitely need to shake things up.
Season 8 = Shook things up! Great focus and tension for the overall season story arc.
Season 9 = Ok. Here it got pretty bad. There's a couple decent episode, but for the most part, They really should've stopped at Season 8.

And "the truth". My God, that was lame! Boooooo! I expected a better payoff after 9 season than "12-22-12: the date is set".

Would the 2nd movie be set on 12-22-12?

That might be the coolest thing ever, I'm not sure.

I just saw the ep with the sideshow town, with the "mermaid monkey" or something. That was intense.

The thing that bothered me about the later mythology episodes is that a biological invasion of Earth in the manner they described is simply absurd.

Plus it sort of rendered any spiritual or monster of the week episodes pointless. How could an alien invasion take place if there were angels, devils, vampires and so on?
