I saw the news yesterday. The X-Files is coming back for a six episode run. My first thought was to seek out a college dorm TV room to watch, because that’s how I watched back when the show was in its prime.
I’ll definitely check it out. I’m curious though. I kind of tuned out the last couple of seasons and I missed the second movie. Do I need to catch up on those? Will the show even work? I don’t doubt the chemistry of Mulder and Scully, but in a age where any crackpot on the internet can become a national story, how will the conspiracy theory thing play?
That being said, I’m enjoying this new form of the mini-series. Its a great way to span the now defacto winter hiatus. Some thing work (Agent Carter). Others don’t (Galivant). But it’s a great way to take a chance on something that might not have the legs for a full season run.
But now, it’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Night.
