That first revival season is rough and proves that Chris Carter is, somehow, the worst X-Files writer.


My eyes always glaze over when an episode does one of those Chris Carter droning monologues because they're just so rambling and empty of substance. I feel like I'm listening to a reading of some film student's paper on the Matrix. I actually liked the last series, but the opening and ending episodes were complete horseshit and I just pretend they never happend while enjoying a nice batch of monster of the week episodes.

Was Carter somehow involved with Heroes? Because I gave up on that because of all the opening monologues that just waffled on about nothing.

I did a re-watch of X-Files a few years ago with my wife and I found I preferred the MOTW episodes because you got to see the characters playing off eachother and having fun. I'm old enough to have watched X Files as it originally aired and as a teenager I was excited for the arc to move forwards, but I bailed out at some point because life got in the way. When I went back to it the world had changed and I never really got into it's groove.

Whatever happened to UFO hysteria anyway? One day people just suddenly stopped caring. I know camera phones killed most things like this and I guess the fact that we can now buy drones that "move like nothing I ever saw in the sky" popped the alien tech bubble, but we just don't hear from people saying they got probed anymore
