    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
  8. 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.
  12. The Octagon

    The Octagon Stop...Hammertime

    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 :D

    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.

    Dana Scully :eek::oops:

    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 :D :D :D
  14. 8den

    8den No I'm pretty sure that was 8ball...

    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?
  17. Disjecta Membra

    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

    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

    Sea Star this place is too unfriendly for me

    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.

    So maybe!

    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'
