    X-Files (TV series) - New six episodes

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-32035562

    Cult sci-fi show The X-Files is to return to TV after a 13-year hiatus.

    David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for the six-part series.

    Original creator Chris Carter will be at the helm when production starts this summer.

    Ah yes, a mini series - where Mulder and Scully lead survivors through a post invasion wasteland and fight alongside the alien resistance against the terraformers and purity infected humans. UNLESS THEY FORGOT ABOUT THE FINAL EPISODE!!!!

    Hooray!!!

    I was hoping for a 12 episode run, but I'll take 6 - more X-Files, no matter how much, is always a good thing in my book (well, as long as they don't screw it up, but I doubt they will). Super stoked for this!!!

    First look at the return of everyone's favorite (former)FBI agents....



    With revivals of both The X-Files and Twin Peaks on the horizon, someone needs to get these agents to cameo in the others' series. Mulder and Cooper would get along fantastically! Excluding Duchovny as the transexual DEA agent in Twin Peaks, of course. That doesn't count.

    I was never really into The X-Files...

    That said I do recall an episode called "Squeeze" that I seem to remember giving me the heebeejeebees! - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeeze_%28The_X-Files%29

    X-files one-offs were so great. X-files overarching metaplot was so meh. This sounds great, though.

    I didn't mind the meta-plot (although it could have been made a little plainer for dunces like me...thank you internet for helping me to understand what the hell the Black Oil/Purity was, its relation to the Colonists, etc).

    Once it was wrapped up though
     
    with the death of the Committee
    it felt like the show was "over" & I never enjoyed it as much afterwards.

    That said, the stand alone episodes rocked too. I liked that there were both.

    I enjoy the "mythology" episodes quite a bit, but my favorites are definitely the "monster of the week" episodes. Those are generally loads of fun and tend to have a more light hearted approach. Some fantastic guest stars in those episodes, as well.

    The last movie was a monster of the week one, too bad it was a lame monster of the week one and trying to be edgy with a kiddy fiddler priest.

    I enjoyed "I Want to Believe". Granted, it may have been more because I was a fan of the series and glad to see the characters return, but it was an enjoyable film nonetheless. They probably would have faired better if they made a mythology film, though.

    Agreed with you all-the-way so far, Sir ... IWTB was a decent flick and a welcome bit of X-Files back on my screen ... and the mythology episodes were very good (even if they weakened in the last couple of seasons), although I was also more partial to the one-offs or two-parters. I was particularly fond of the more light-hearted episodes that really mixed things up a bit (e.g. the two-part body swapping story from season six).

    Can't wait! Its very minor, but Skully's wig really gets on my nerves. Its a movie pet peeve of mine. Once its noticed, its hard to ignore...

    I'm really surprised we didn't get a more lengthy trailer out of comic con last week. You'd think they'd take advantage of that considering the fan base of this show.
