I thought half of them were good and the other half were bad. I did enjoy the season though.

for whatever reason there's a huge disparity in quality between original runs and renewals when it comes to science fiction

twilight zone
x files
futurama

with futurama and x files there were fleeting moments where they had "it"

you can do a lot of cool and unique things with 22 episodes...monster of the week, aliens, humor, one off weirdness episodes, social commentary (nursing home abuse, plastic surgery, video games, internet, tv)

it feels like he tried to cram all of that into 6 episodes and it was a little more ham handed than usual and didn't have the same humorous irreverence for some of the subject matter in regards to commentary.

it seemed like a lot of "well we gotta have that" in the writing. maybe having 4 additional episodes will help.

I'm probably in the minority, but I prefer the "Monster of the Week" episodes.

I don't want a Mulder/Scully relationship. I don't want a season or series long story arc.

I mean sure, you can have your recurring characters/bad guys but you don't need to give them motive. The Monster of the week episodes were fun.

I loved episodes 2-5, didn't care for first and last episodes. Talking about season 10 of course.

I bet this season will be on par with season 10 which isn't a bad thing. Probably won't care for tonight's episode too much but I'll watch.

With Twilight Zone you're talking about a reboot that took place twenty years after the original run. They pulled in some of the original writers and actually reshot some of the original episodes, but they didn't have Serling steering the ship.

The TZ series that came after the '85 series was watered down to almost nothing.

my problems with it were pretty much the problems I have with the new season of curb your enthusiasm...it's self imitating and self aware. "we gotta have this"

obviously that makes more sense with RS being dead, but it's still part of a larger trend

futurama and x files had the cast and creators still involved so those are head scratchers.


it's a weird phenomenon but a lot of creators knock themselves off later in life...and poorly.

CYE was $$ this season. If X-Files pulls that off I'll be happy.

Well, you're in luck. The 1st and last episodes are the "story" ones. The rest are monster of the week variety.

Something about this season pissed Gillian off. She's said multiple times she is done with The X-Files

Smoking man's name Carl Gerhard Busch and he did dirty work for all the Republican presidents. X-Files is going full on anti Trump retardation this season.
