THE X-FILES (Beware Season 11 spoilers!)

How am I going to fit this new Season 11 in my existing blu-ray boxset? Fox was good to leave a space in there for Season 10, but now it's full.

 

They shouldn't make this new season. It'll look out of place in my blu-ray collection.

 

Just remove season 9 and use it as a paper weight or something.  Problem solved.

Watching that video, it is astonishing how poorly David Duchovny has aged compared to how amazing Gillian Anderson has aged.  What a difference!

Were they really married in the second movie?  We still haven't watched it yet

 

Nope.

No, they weren't. They were just living together.

 

Also nope. They hadn't seen each other for a while until they were drafted back in to the FBI.

Wasn't Mulder a hermit with a beard who's gone into recluse? And Dana was working in the Catholic hospital.

 

Yeah but they were still living together. Not married though.

 

It wasn't until the 2016 series we found they'd been separated since the 2008 movie.

If I recall correctly, we are introduced to Mulder by Scully coming home to him.  And they definitely share a scene in bed talking about William (maybe the only thing in the movie that touches on the larger X-Files canon).

 

Haven't seen the movie since it was in theaters, though, and probably wouldn't revisit it.

I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't what I was expecting at the time (something alien based, not monster of the week).  I wouldn't rewatch it, but in the same way that I don't rewatch 98% of the movies and shows that I watch.  I also wouldn't rewatch the series, except for maybe some stand-out stand alone episodes.

Well, he's also about 8 years older.  He looked really good in I Want To Believe.

The X-Files 11x01 My Struggle III

 

Ehhhhhhhh not as bad as the My Struggle eps from last season but not great.  When the episode ended my wife said "this is like a sci-fi soap opera" and that's a pretty good way to sum it up.  Not sure how I feel about the last season climactic ending being turning into a vision of Scully, nor about her baby being CSM's and not Mulder's after all this time, etc etc.  I don't care about any of that crap any more, I just want to see Mulder and Scully investigate weird stuff every week please.  The direction in this episode was kinda funny, like Carter knew there was so much info he wanted to dump out, he had the score be fast-paced the entire time, quickly cut from scene to scene, and had the camera always moving, always zooming around all over the place.  Kinda funny.

The X-Files 11x02 This

 

Well, that was much better than the season premiere.  Actually had a story you could follow, and Mulder and Scully being themselves and actually having fun together.  I think Chris Carter (and/or Glen Morgan) has been watching Black Mirror and wanted to do his take on the "AI has rights" stories they've been doing more and more of, probably didn't realize practically the entire season of BM this time around would be about that.  I dunno if that aspect of the episode made the most sense, but it was a decent enough mcguffin for them to chase this week.  Here's hoping the next batch of episodes are true monster-of-the-week type stuff!
