Get a life m8s
mostly because I'm an adult
god it looks like a parody :(
why on earth are they trailing it now?
Part of what makes it so great imho
but, BUT, they've got a bunch of the key players back together, and there's a Darin Morgan episode called 'Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster', which I am about 70% certain is going to be The Best.
if you like all the crappy joke episodes which were the death of the show, yeah
the oft-nonsensical, massively convoluted mytharc was responsible for that, alongside Chris Carter's batshit belief that he could replace the main cast and keep the show going.
I like the early season mythology stuff, but past the first movie it was stuff like Bad Blood and The Postmodern Prometheus and Dreamland that really made the show for me.
there was no way to keep one arc going and still do the monster of the week episodes, it just became untenable. turning into buffy the vampire slayer was really the beginning of the end. they gave up taking it at all seriously.
The jokey episodes (the one with the UFO writer, the Frankenstein one, the Rashomon one) were the best episodes.
Kind of want to. Is it worth it?
the good stuff has dated quite badly and the bad stuff is bad
it took the scariness of a ghost appearing at your window at night and combined it with the seeing a ghost when you're all alone in space!
where Mulder says it's paranormal, Scully says its not but then realises it is>?
Just relaying the facts!
Deal with it
