    Great to See Them Back Together Again

    Like I imagine all other "X-Files" fans, I was beside myself with sheer joy -- close to tears, even -- when I learned about the return of Mulder and Scully. I tuned in to the premiere and was engrossed. It was truly a return to classic form and then some for Chris Carter, Duchovny and Anderson. A truly stunning and epic episode. Annet Mahendru is hypnotic and brilliant as Sveta. The middle episodes were standalone installments, and I was rather thrown off course that they didn't seem to tie into the premiere as much as they should have. A couple were good, several were not. With the final episode picking back up largely where the first one left off, it felt like too long of a jump after wading through the middle episodes. The apocalyptic and frightening final cliffhanger episode was really top-notch, though, so the wait was very much worth it.

    very high expectations for this revival, being a fan of the show from beginning till the end of the original series, and i was not disappointed at all. i think it was well worth the hype, my struggle 1 and 2 perfect bookends for the event series, gets the new direction of the show going. founders mutation and home again were great, a little of the monster of the week and the story line. however the two episodes that stand out the most are babylon, it has something to say about the world we live in today, and mulder and scully meet the weremonster i think it was the highlight of the series, that funny, not to serious but with a point, this episode could stand toe to toe with any of the classics. so as a long time fan followers of the show will own this and to the newcomer you will not be disappointed. there is something for everyone.

    The truth is out there

    As a fan of the original X-Files TV series from the 1990's I was excited to hear the series was making a comeback. However, other TV shows have tried this and failed and with the glut of recent movie reboots and sequels. I was hesitant to see Mulder & Scully once again, ut they did not disappoint. The chemistry is still there, and along with some familiar faces and new ideas it was a welcome sight. It is a bit different from many of the alien mythology episodes, but it takes on modern themes and issues very well. Scully is still solid and Mulder is still "Spooky" Mulder.

    Classic characters revisited

    I've always loved the original X-files, at least until they tried replacing Mulder and Scully, at that point it was no longer the same series. But after all these years, to see them back in action is a true joy. They have a chemistry between them that resonates with their fans, and just like other beloved series, such as the original Star Trek, they will forever have a place in the history of television. A delight to watch, and a reminder of happier times. I'd recommend this for anybody who loved the original series....the truth is out there :)

    X-Files conspiracies get a much needed update

    The new season of the X-Files plays like a coda that provides insight into every conspiracy that the series has missed out on since it went into hiatus. The result is the familiar world of characters operating in our modern social media driven world, however the storylines feel like they got spawned from conservative conspiracy memes your reclusive Uncle posts while hiding out in his bunker retreat.. Still if you are a fan of the original, you will find these entertaining.

    I was happy to see the x files return to tv after the series ended and see what the main characters are doing today. Very interesting storyline which hopefully the network will bring back as it seemed to attract an audience of a new age and time. The stories were right up where Mulder and Scully would investigate. The DVD is a welcome addition to my collection of the original series. A must for the avid viewer of the series.

    Poor Attempt at Bringing Back a Beloved 90s Series

    It seems as if Cris Carter will happily milk this franchise as long as he can. The series consists of six episodes. Instead of making one concise six hour long story with a satisfying conclusion. We get two mythology episodes and four monster of the week episodes. I could care less for the four MOW eps at this point. The actors seem to lack enthusiasm. And the series ends in a cliff hanger

    Season 10 has everything for the fans of X-files wanted. Governmental conspiracy, unexplained alien technology, paranormal cases, and bureaucracy procedures etc. The only sad thing is that the final episode has no ending, thus so called "cliffhanger." Not sure why they did this but probably because everyone hopes to have a Season 11.
