The X-Files (1993-?)
Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.
I wouldn’t call myself a big X-Files fan. I liked it, of course, and I’ve seen all the episodes, but it’s not something I’ve ever re-watched. I keep meaning to, but never get around to it. One day.
Anyway, I don’t remember everything that happened at the end of the last run or really what even happened in the movies, but so far that hasn’t caused any problems.
The first episode was able to get me pumped up and excited for what’s to come. Considering I had to watch it on Fox’s app and deal with commercial breaks that only showed one commercial four to three times in a row, I think that’s saying something. Even after the slow torture of the Empire season premier trailer playing over and over to the point my daughter quoted it, I was eager to watch the next episode.
There was a lot of set up and I seriously hope they don’t resolve it all by the end of this six episode run. It would be too much to pack into such a limited number of episodes and it wouldn’t be what people love about the X-Files. I’m hoping it does well and leads to more seasons. We’ll see what happens.
