I would like to point out that closure is a big deal to me.. if you can't finish your story correctly, then you automatically lose a bunch of points in my book.
The alien story was one story among hundreds. I never watched it just to find out about samantha and the alien conspiracy. X files isn't like lost or other shows. While you're invested in the alien conspiracy being uncovered (and it is during the movie) it's not central to enjoying the show
The only thing not resolved was Samantha. The alien conspiracy is fully uncovered in the movie and anything after that was carter tacking on new elements. The overall story should have taken a drastically different direction but carter just beat it to death.
And frick him for making scully a believer only after fox leaves and then making her a skeptic all over again in the new movie
I need 20 pages to fully explain the greatness and the shortcomings of the x files
