XFiles, the new season... Pretty good. But the story goes too fast ... That's actually a pretty big issue...

I refuse to watch the show as the music still creeps me out/always did when I was a kid.

Surprised by the levels of negativity towards the opener, although admittedly, I'd hoped for more given that they only have聽six episodes to play with. Carter's new twist on the mythology was quite neat, but for some reason the show's blurring of lines between fact and fiction feels less fun than it used to.聽Hopefully, it gets聽on more of a roll as it goes on.

You're much further along with it than I am then.聽 :D聽 It's still one of those that I've been meaning to start but just never have gotten around to.

Seen the two movies, though.聽 Enjoyed both of them.聽

Not surprised that it's coming back since the ending of the last season practically demanded it, but man alive, what a terrible mess the mythology has become. The direction Carter chose to take backed the series into such a tight and ludicrous corner, it would take a u-turn akin to the one in Dallas to get out of it. :no:

I thought the 'event series' was a dog's dinner often riddled with some aggressively bad writing.聽Maybe with more episodes this time they can restore some聽semblance of coherence to any overreaching mythology, though聽I'd probably prefer if聽they veered away from that stuff altogether, as they should have years ago.聽As for Carter, he's a hindrance rather than an聽asset to the show's creative fortunes and has been for a long, long time. He probably sees no reason to loosen his grip over proceedings but he really, really should.

Even in the early days, I'd find myself craving more of the 'monster of the week' type stuff, but if they'd concentrated fully on delivering a proper conclusion to the mythology, the six-episode run would have felt, at the very least, more coherent. Not only was Carter unable to handle the scripting or directing, he also couldn鈥檛 seem to make up his mind what the series was supposed to represent. The George Lucas of the franchise has become, well, the George Lucas of the franchise.

It was astounding to me how quickly Carter managed to muddy the waters during the first episode of the revival. Within minutes you knew you were watching an astronomical botch job. He could've gone ANYWHERE and he chose....that.聽

Now with all that chirpy positivity put to one side, anyone buying the new Audible Cold Case thingy?
