I didn't see where anyone has put up this topic, yet.  Is anyone bothering with the X-Files anymore?  I haven't seen tonight's episode (6) yet, but so far, it's been a much better season than last and I'm really enjoying it.  A really nice hybridization of mythology and stand alone stories and much more tightly written.  Car chases and voice overs maybe too long, but I don't want to nitpick.  I should probably sign up at some X-Files site somewhere to discuss it, but by the time I get to it, the show will be over!  So sad:(

Yes, I watched the 2/7/18 episode late last night.  I liked it a lot.  Some of these characters, like Skinner, have needed some backstory for a while.  Not sure I totally understood the teeth thing, though.  Will have to rewatch.  I liked the premiere a lot.  Good use of voice over with Smoking Man, but got too much with all of Mulder's.  Still, the conflict was set up wonderfully, and it wasn't always in this show.  They've gotten the hang of it just in time to retire it:)

Beer, did you happen to make it through Mr. Robot this year?

I've been downloading them to watch them without commercials.  Glad to hear they're good and looking forward even more now to my binge.  :tv_horror:

Yes, Earthnut, I think you'll find it's worth the effort. even if you weren't overjoyed by last season.

Beer, I, too, liked William's role and was really surprised I did.  I was dreading it when I saw the pre-season interviews saying he'd be a big part.  It was tied in well, though at this point, I think we need to see him in more than the finale, especially if it's the FINALE finale as it's rumoured to be, due to Gillian's statement she won't be doing X-Files anymore.  (Maybe though, they just kill Scully off or have her take a hiatus like when she was pregnant. Who knows?)

Mr. Robot's ratings weren't great, but it's gotten a lot of deserved critical acclaim.  Kor Adana won't be back, but I think Sam can get by on his own creation just fine!  Excellent TV, I think--one of the very few I watch live.

Maybe in teh finale Scully goes off with William... Maybe all three go off together.   I can't see an X-files without Scully, so if  Gillian isn't doing it, they will have to wrap it up.  Who  knows though? It went on for a while without Mulder!  

Where did Dogget and Reyes go though?

I for one haven't a clue what happened to Dogget and Reyes.  Here's what I found at Wiki ~
 

Quote

In the eleventh season premiere, it is revealed that despite the events of the season ten finale "My Struggle II" being a part of Scully's vision, Monica is still working for The Smoking Man as one of his confidants and as a member of the new Syndicate. She apprehends her former Assistant Director Walter Skinner at gunpoint and offers to protect him from the Spartan virus if he finds Mulder and Scully's child, William, first.

Quote

In the series finale, Doggett testified on Mulder's behalf when Mulder was charged with murder. Later, he and Reyes narrowly escaped from Knowle Rohrer, who Doggett had discovered about a year prior was working for the conspiracy. At the end of the series, Doggett is likely a regular agent, as it appears that Kersh was forced to close down the X-Files division.

Ahh, but can Dogget every "really"  go back to being a regular agent?  Even his cynical eyes were opened.

Doubt that he could ever be a "regular" agent because, as you said, "his cynical eyes were opened."
