Hoping for the best (seasons 1-5); prepared for the worst (seasons 6-10).
Yeah! Can't wait. That show just oozed cool and set the standard for a lot of sci-fi shows that came after.
Lots of rumors that if this season goes as well as expected, they'll keep doing more...
Greatest show ever made IMO
Well you should know.
Until they screwed it up with seasons 6-10.
The intro theme is among the best ever for a TV show.
I didn't mind the later seasons. Not nearly as good, but still very solid.
Season 6 was terrible. I get they were going for the whole "punish Mulder and Scully for the events of the movie by putting them behind a desk", but all it really did was hamstring the duo.
Season 7 was okay - the best of seasons 6-9 (sorry - I thought there were 10 seasons. This will be the 10th season).
Season 8 was interesting because Scully became Mulder and Doggett became Scully, but it just wasn't as good as Mulder and Scully.
Season 9 Scully went behind the scenes and Doggett and Reyes just didn't have the dynamic that Mulder and Scully had. It was almost becoming "why even bother anymore?"
If Season 10 ends up being on par with this latest season of 24, I'd be happy to see a season 11.
Can't argue too much. I know mulder being in the show less had more to do with contract disputes than it did anything else.
Reyes is back.
IT'S COMING BACK!!!!
Like the poster.
Production starts this summer. Will air sometime during next TV season. I'm guessing we'll have a trailer premiere during the World Series.
Looking forward to it...hopefully it gets a little better flow than during the reboot last year.
I loved the Scully/Mulder dynamic of the early years (particularly the episodes with a bit of humor to them), but when Duchovny left, it just never had the same draw for me.
I watched the first couple of episodes last year, but for me the magic was gone. Too bad.
It was appointment TV for me in the 90s.
I'm not saying the first movie killed the show (I actually rather liked the first movie), but the show just wasn't the same following the movie. I really didn't like the "discipline" angle where they were always having to sneak around, and then Mulder was abducted at the end of the season. It's funny - I always assumed me being busy my sophomore year at ISU was the reason why I drifted away from the show, but in retrospect, after binging the show a few years back, it had actually started going downhill right around then.
As far as last season, I don't necessarily think the magic is gone because it was a good season. But first, it has been 15 or so years since the original run ended, and besides a second movie, we knew very little about these characters anymore, and while they tried to catch us up, they're still kind of strangers. Second, there was very little memorable about last season. To this day I still remember particular episodes - Darkness Falls and Tooms (s1), Humbug (s2), Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose, 2Shy, and Syzygy (s3), Home (s4), Unusual Suspects, Detour, Chinga, Bad Blood (s5), and all those episodes have something in common - they're all "Monster of the Week" episodes disconnected from the overarching story arc. Everything about last season was story arc.
And as silly as it was, I rather enjoyed it.
