Almost 14 years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILESTM is a thrilling, six-episode event series from creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reinhabiting their roles as iconic FBI agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI Assistant Director WALTER SKINNER, Mulder and Scully s boss, who walks a fine line between loyalty to these investigators and accountability to his superiors. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy®- and Golden Globe® Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

Now that I've watched it all (all of the xfiles in the past 3 months including all original 9 seasons, 2 movies, and now this seaosn) I have to say, "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" might be my favorite episode ever. We were crying we were laughing so hard. It's beautiful Mulder wackiness and there's great dynamic between all the characters. I'm still laughing.
I agree with most people about the last episode, and I'm done with the mythology part of it too. Having watched all of it in 3 months (as a newbie mostly) I have to say the standalones are the best by far. But mostly, I was really happy watching this show. The 2nd movie sucked for sure and the 8th and 9th seasons are a bit of a struggle, but overall I'm happy.
The thing that sucks is now we're like everyone else. Waiting a year to see a cliffhanger pay off. And given that we watched all the cliffhangers pay off immediately after, I know I'm going to be let down with a long wait. Oh well! We're all caught up.
The original X-Files series was running out of steam after 9 seasons and took a timely bow. What was a perfect time capsule was slightly soiled by a couple of so-so feature films and now a scrambled, over the top, 10th Season resurrection that would have been better off remaining in the tomb. Writer/Producer/Director Chris Carter has not only taken liberties with the original series story lines but also gone way off tangent on events both recent (911) and distant (Roswell 1947). The problem is in that good old X-Files tagline: "The truth is out there", because you see, the truth REALLY is out there BUT Chris Carter has always veered away from the actual truth and played heavily on fantasy fiction. This is not to say that seeing Mulder and Scully together on screen again does not tug sentimentally on the heartstrings. Indeed the intense chemistry between David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is as much a driving factor behind the original series success as the inventive storytelling and anti-government, paranormal, UFO conspiracy stories were, but let's check nostalgia at the door for a moment and with clearer heads consider Season 10 on it's own merits and that's when the scrambled, over the topness, rewrite of X-Files and real history become a little to much to take.
Hopefully after this special 10th Season "Event Series" fans who for years clamored for more X-Files will clamor instead for leaving perfection alone. However, if 20th Century Fox and Chris Carter move forward and continue to churn out more X-Files material they should really change that iconic tagline from "The truth is out there" to "The fantasy is in here (and we need more money)" because that would be a more accurate description for this so-so extension of a once great franchise.
Mom, Dad, Selma, and I used to love watching "The X-Files" when it first aired on television nearly 25 years ago - hard to believe that it's been that long. Agents Mulder and Scully were a dynamic team who played off each other's strength's and weakness as they struggled to reconcile their conflicting belief systems in solving cases and seeking the ultimate truth.
Now about 15 years later "The X-Files - The Event Series" picks up where the sucky conclusion of the original series left off. It seems that Mulder no longer is a fugitive wanted for the murder of a fellow FBI agent, but is living a rather secluded life in a small house somewhere off the beaten track. Scully does charity work at a Catholic hospital, helping to perform facial reconstructive surgeries on children born with birth defects.
Both their carefully constructed lives get up-heaved when a popular Internet conspiracy talk show host makes wild claims about a government program that has inserted alien DNA into the population.
Only this talk show host has the clout to pull strings and gets Assistant Director Skinner to call Scully to call Mulder because the talk show host wants to talk with Mulder about what is going on.
The truth of the alien invasion and the government cover-up it seems hinges on whether Scully can determine if a young woman does indeed have alien DNA implanted in her body.
Yet even as the "truth" falls apart - or does it - Mulder and Scully agree to return to the FBI and restart "The X-Files."
Their next four adventures are prime examples of what made "The X-Files" a highly enjoyable series - the humor and the edge-of-your-seat horror.
Interesting, Scully's and Mulder's son William - who they gave up for adoption in order to protect him, does play a key role in this mini-series, and it's suggested that William is the only one who now can save Mulder's life.
Yes, "The X-Files - The Event Series" does unfortunately end on a alien spaceship hovering overhead cliff hanger; which hopefully gets resolved in a future series and/or movie.
