    Saw the 1st episode earlier. I can tell you the X files magic is back.

    Really well done. I am looking forward to the rest of the season.

    They even kept the original intro to the series

    Glad to see it back, albeit for only 6 episodes. I’ve always loved the cast, and it’s nice to see that they haven’t lost a step.

    Not sure about the endless back to back monologues but I suppose that's one way to get the viewers caught up on a bunch of missed time as well as refresh our memories.

    Watched the first episode after missing most of the post-Duchovney seasons, the second movie, and most of the most recent season.

    Good lord, was it bad.

    I felt like the writing, acting, and direction were conspiring against quality to the point that I wondered how it made it to air. Broken. Like, Star Wars Episode I-level broken. Like Star Wars Episode I if every character was given a monologue voiceover in lieu of exposition and the cuts came every 3 seconds broken.

    I thought episode 1 was rehashing topics that had been around for a long time but episode 2 was good stuff. I would say the writers are sorry the ever killed off the boys from The Smoking Gun. They showed up last season and now again this year.

    Glad they're back. Enjoyed the 1st 2 episodes in spite of all the catching up.

    Writing is much better and plot by the end seems to have logic for the most part.

    A bit confusing as some of the good guys seem to have gone over to the other side...but maybe not? Time will tell.

    Seems good so far, altho I think I missed the first ep (from the sound of Winters860 review, maybe that's a good thing). They'd better wrap the series up right this time, as Gillian Anderson has said this is it for her.

    Glad to hear it's better than the last go-round. I've really held off in trepidation but... the trailers for this season looked really good.

    Re: Lone Gunmen, could have been an epic follow-up to X-Files and really surprised it wasn't better handled and developed more. Wait, what? It was on FOX?

    They'd fit right in on The Librarians ...

    He'll never say never... again. Or something. I think she means it though. What did Harrison Ford say in Blade Runner... "I was quit when I came in here, I'm twice as quit now"? :0
