As for the movie....I loved the X-Files, but the fact that the movie wasn't a continuation of the main story really put my interest low on the scale. I want to know WTF happened with the aliens, oil, Krycheck, cigarette man, well manicured man, etc etc etc. I don't want to watch an FBI movie, I want to watch an X-File. So that's my $.02.
so, all of those questions could be answered by revisiting the series, even prior to the seasons 7-8-9 bullshit. except for the well manicure man, the first movie explained that.

I recall there was a goofy episode with Burt Reynolds as a guest star, another one about a guy obsessed with The Brady Bunch or something, and another storyline where they solved what had happened to Doggett's kid years ago, and Lucy Lawless as a super soldier ...

And some crap about Mulder and Scully's Magical Alien Baby and how they gave it to a married couple who had a farm in the middle of nowhere or something, because they had to protect him and gee, no one can ever know about this Magical Alien Baby baby, and surely the bad guys will never find the baby with a family just living on a farm... or maybe we should just write him out of the show because we really fucked up that story.

(It was a really cute baby, though. I remember that.)
wait wtf, he killed off the lone gunmen????? OMG!!

I know. Sorry to spoil it, but there comes a time when you have to wonder if you need to consider something a spoiler when it came out over 5 years ago.

it's only considered a spoiler if i had intentions of watching it. since i didn't, it's all good. lol all you did was pick at a wound that was already there. the wound of the horrible truth of what the show had become.

wounds of truth

Not if those events took place in a PARALLEL UNIVERSE on the Alien Homeworld <---- THAT'S the kind of stuff I want to hear about. And throw in some black holes and a Wormhole for good measure.

I'm exactly the same point back. I mean, I've seen most of the episodes through the first six seasons and then lost interest not too far after the movie. But watching them in succession, I managed to get through the first 1.5 seasons back in the summer of 2005 before becoming busy and forgetting about the series (and eventually, watching a ton of other great shows all the way through that I hadn't seen before). I do want to re-watch the rest of Season 2 along with 3-5 as those were all fabulous and some of the best television drama episodes of all time.

Not only that, but it was an episode appropriately titled "Jump the Shark". Though intended ironically, it was a terrible episode, as most were that final year.

You can try out the Lone Gunmen TV series. There are, like, 16 episodes on DVD.
I personally didn't like them as leads, but they might have been useful in a mythology, I guess. I'd have rather they killed Reyes.

Here's an interesting interview with Duchovny and Anderson about the film:
Interview: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson for "The X Files: I Want to Believe"

The Burt Reynolds episode was perhaps the best of the season -- a really innovative episode. The music and the humor made it so much fun, even if the suspense plot was a bit lame. The ending was insanely great:
YouTube - X-files improbable-Io Mammate E Tu

Also, the Brady Bunch one was pretty enjoyable in a Season 6 humor kind of way.
The Doggett one was formulaic but enjoyable, too, in a Season 6 kind of way -- better than most of the Season 7 episodes.

You have to understand Fox owned it and held the show on the air due to casting contracts. Carter didn't want it to go on that long and kept coming back because it was his baby.

While that's true. This is trying to be different in terms of the relationship and this the best relationship drama since Season 5!

The suspense plot could have been better, but it's trying to present moral ambiguities, which the purely scary episodes didn't aim for. Also, Season 1 is really cheesy, except a handful of episodes. I can't bare to watch most of Season 1.

This movie didn't try to repeat the formula, but aimed for new ground and I respect it for that, while I'm glad there IS criticism because Chris and Frank need to know where they went wrong.

I enjoyed this more than the first film, though, and I'm a hardcore mythology fan.

I also suspect Fox will not let this die. The X-Files is so huge and the DVD sales will be big if they give Chris a big budget and free reign for a great story the next time around. They only got $30 million for this. How much money have they made off the series? Surely much, much more than this puny sum.

FOX will certainly let this die. It needs to make $60 million worldwide to break even since the theaters earn half the profit. It might squeeze by financially on DVD. Would you make a sequel to a film you broke even on that most of the audience didn't really care for?
