i wondered if that were the case. Reviews are in for the first 2 eps and are encouraging
Yes, I'm really looking forward to it.
Are we keeping this thread spoiler free until channel 5 show it? I'm happy to avoid it if needs be
Whoa the X-files is coming back?
You can always use spoiler tags.
Everything is coming back !
On a side note, I didn't know David Duchovny could sing...
Just watched the first episode.
They use the original opening credits. That was genuinely spine-tingling. The rest, well it's overarching-arc heavy, so we'll see I suppose
Both excellent eps, Jose Chung turned up in Millennium, IIRC
I really enjoyed ep 1. I was bracing myself for dissapoint because I don't love the mythos ones but it was cool. It cashed in a few nostalgia chips to buy my love but I think it got away with it. CSM's reveal
literally made me remember why smoking is bad and I should stop. Through the fucking trachea for gods sake
S10 E03 so how silly is this getting? as a first answer i'll offer - very.
Another opportunity taken to get Gillian Anderson in her underwear
Don't think i'll bother with it any more
It was written by the same guy who wrote Jose Chung's From Outer Space and was very much in that style. I liked it fine.
I thought that was brilliant, first 2 eps didn't grab me but that - that was classic X-Files.
I'm still laughing remembering some scenes
Duchovny and Anderson both properly inhabiting the characters again, a great couple of guest stars, and the kind of twisty, unreliable narrator plot that the show used to do so well.
Can't wait for the next one, based on the title.
Loved E03... a wonderfully self-knowing parody. Oh and that final ring-tone gag. Made me
Ep03 was wonderful, great guests, lovely injokes and throw backs, and that sense of humour was tremendous
three was by far the best for me so far, even if it wasn't played straight face. Those can be the greatest. The long convo in the graveyard between lizard man and mulder cracked me up. Also: queegqueeg
Where are you watching it?
Is it arc stuff and one-off stuff mixed, like before?
Loving it and ep 3 haha
torrents. yes, mythos/conspiracy mixed with monster-of-the-week eps. So far
Scully's straight up side eye before swiping the dog made me lol.
"Dagoo" is also a Moby Dick character
Seems I'm on my own. Give me more of Eugene Victor Tooms or Leonard Betts
One of the best thing about the show always was how different it could be from episode to episode. I though Darin Morgan raised it to another level though with his handful episodes and I'm glad he's back for this.
still my fave two parter non conspiracy one is Tooms. Hey, they could bring Tooms back as well. He's sort of immortal as well as mad stretchy
Starts on Channel 5 on Monday.
Agree. Episode 3 was farcical. It was just people standing around blabbing exposition at each other. The Eugene Victor Tooms episode was full of suspense and stuff. All that has gone.
I myself quite enjoyed Episode 3's comedy aspect. But not every episode, its about time we got a standard 'X-Files' episode.
Humbug was a good "comedy episode":
This was just poor
Maybe I'm over-sensitive but wasn't that bit in episode 3 with the trans woman a tad transphobic?
Well the lizard guy said later "That's a bit too far." When talking about it.
Is this on tonight?
read an article on this that firmly came down on the 'transphobic' side of tthe judgement. Played by a drag artist, confuses transistion with surgery, drug addiction, played for laughs, sex work. As tha article put it 'the show is from the 90s, looks like some of its identity politics are still there'
