    WOW! I forgot how much I loved the X-files. I hung on every episode (at least until Mulder and Scully were replaced) of the original series. How it makes you feel like all these crazy conspiracy theories could actually be real. How much the government hides from us. And great to see a lot of the original cast involved. Too bad it's only six episodes. I could use six more seasons!

    Yeah, hopefully it gets renewed for another season.
    Watched the first episode, honestly, it was a bit mediocre. And felt kinda rushed. But I will give it a pass - it was a first episode after so many years. And there are still 5 episodes to come!

    What you read above came from rational killkenny1. Now let's hear X-Files fan killkenny!:
    "YEAH, MULDER! YEAH, SCULLY. F YEAH! SKINNER! CONSPIRACIES, YEAH! UFOS, H BOMBS, CIGARETTE SMOKING MAN! YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES! FLYING SOURCER! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! X-FILES IS BACK ITCHES!

    Maybe that was it. I felt like I was 20 years younger and living back in the 90's for 42 minutes.

    Smoking through that trach though... yeeesh.

    I think we have a strong case of nostalgia here.

    I know, makes him even more of an asshole :D.
    I do hope it's just for the show and not his real life condition.

    Both episodes kept me completely engaged. I never noticed 42 minutes were up, and saddened as soon as the credits popped up. Love it. Man, I need to go back an watch the old episodes now. I doubt they will, but maybe they will at least do two 13 episode seasons. This is great stuff.

    Such a goofy episode compared with the first two.

    I think it was to fire up Mulder again about all this, but kind of a wasted episode in a six episode series IMHO.
