    I hope they go more for tooms and flesh eating flies and killer silicon fungus ( :hmm: ). The conspiracy stuff and aliens was good enough at the time but there was never any payoff to it all

    testing the waters before commissioning more- fox usually renew on a series by series basis iirc

    It'll get the first two eps watched by everyone out of nostalgic wishing for it to be good, but if its ropey I'll give up by ep 3

    Haven't David & Gillian said that they're not in for a long haul? Sure I read a snippet earlier this year.

    Not another 9 seasons of regurgitated X Files i'd wager.

    ShiftyBagLady Thinks she is a flower to be looked at

    Great. Fanfuckingtastic. I look forward to another barrage of brain-dead dickheads calling me Scully for the foreseeable future then, given that I vaguely look like her and my name is vaguely similar and vague associations seem to pass as wit as readily these days as in the old days.

    I'm massively excited and I don't care if it's crap because it'll be brilliant anyway just like even the shittest of the old episodes were.

    Everything's great if you want it to be.

    Just believe.

    Last time I saw skinner in anything he was playing an aryan brotherhood nazi in Sons of Anarchy. It'll be weird if he comes back in this

    You're probably better off stopping after season 4 anyway.

    Season 5 is pretty good, and it features an episode written by William Gibson that's as great as you'd expect.

    Looking forward to it. We liked the first film, not so the second.
    Be interested to see if they are bringing back previous allies.
    My favourite episode is still season three, episode four, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose, with the utterly brilliant Peter Boyle as a psychic insurance salesman. Outstanding story IMO.

    I've forgotten when I lost interest, when Mulder was missing for months and only in a few episodes.

    I loved the X-files but stopped watching around the point when Krycek(sp?) was being superfied by the black goo. I always meant to go back and finish it but never got around to it.

  30. Silva

    Silva This went well.

    While I'm not expecting much, six episodes is a good idea. If it's bad, heh, it's not like it will take much to unravel. If it holds up well, might get a 12-episodes in 2017.

    Ideally, I hope they wipe out everything after season 5 or 6, and start from there.
