Yah, I did use the word "reboot" without thinking.

I guess it's because that word gets tossed around a lot.

I have been hoping they would do a third movie to complete the trilogy. Second film left us high and dry with Scully and Mulder sailing off on a boat in to nowhere looking like that was pretty much the end we would see them. I did not like the second movie it was awful. But a TV mini series may be even better. They always did better in the TV format instead of cinema imo.

I have my doubts that this will lead into a full blown new series containing all the original cast. Lets face it, they have a lot going on now with other shows etc. That said, I think this would be a great transition into a new cast. If done properly there is no reason they cant pass the torch to a new breed of agents that are just as hungry for the truth as Mulder was and have all of the 2015 resources at their disposal. Yes we are all invested in these characters but I think they have played out their story lines as much as they can. There is no reason they cant be making appearances quite often with a new cast but I just dont see them both coming back full time.

I read an article not too long ago and it leads me to believe you are right. The article (wish I remember where I read it) basically said the X-files miniseries was created, in part, to drum up interest in the original series so more people will subscribe to on-line services such as Netflix. The article indicated that we should expect to see other long-off-the-air shows return with miniseries with the same purpose.

All that is fine with me.

Exactly right. Sadly, after the "pilot" episode (yay for puns!), the Lone Gunmen series got awfully silly.

I agree, the second movie was a waste of a chance to make a great movie... I hope they come up with some good crazy stuff this time in the tv-series. Scully and Mulder must have demanded a serious pay-raise for returning in the x-files. I can only hope that their salaries will not cut too deep in the budget and enough money left to pay for a good story and crazy visual effects.

Wow, re-watching the X-Files now too, I'm on season five. IT is just UNBELIEVABLE how far ahead of it's time the show was. There are episodes about rBGH, ufo's, mind control, GMOs, bees, even fringe conspiracies and little know things (like prions, chimeras) all kinds of interesting content and good starting points for history research.

One of those shows that actually makes you feel a little smarter after watching it. Sadly, it is tapering off as the seasons go on.

Im going to have to ask whats so great about the X Files. I see everyone's hyper about it here so now I'm a bit hyper. Never watched it myself so I'm curious.


Keep in mind the time period the X-files stared in. They first aired in 1993. The Internet was still kind of a new thing. Conspiracies were only discussed in random BBS boards and on Art bells Coast to Coast. Most of the information was only from books and a few lone researchers. Researching conspiracies really meant meeting people in person.
The X-files sort of took all the weird conspiracies and made them into tv show.
I think we were a little more innocent back then also. The horrors of "Columbine",9-11 and people getting their heads cut of by black clad fanatics had not happened yet. It was easier to get a cheap scare out of weird aliens and monsters.
They also were doing "Monster-of-the-week" type of shows that really had not been done since "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" show in 1974-75. Plus they were kind of edgy for the time period. I think the episode "Home" season 4 episode 2, was quite disturbing for it's time. Of course compared to "Game of Thrones, "Walking dead" etc it seems fairly quint now.

I strongly disagree with one of your points...

"Home" is no less sick and twisted now than it ever was. Considering the restraints they had back then on public television, Chris Carter's "Home" puts anything Rob Zombie could produce in theaters to shame.

Edit: Pleaae disregard the "Considering the restraints" line.... Head to head that episode destroys anything Rob Zombie or Wes Craven ever came up with or could ever hope to.

Totally agree. There are images from that episode that still stick in my mind. Disturbing.

I strongly disagree but that is the great thing about living, people have different opinions and both are right because they are just that, opinions..

Regardless of trying to compare what Chris Carter came up with to Wes Craven hopefully this miniseries gives some closure.

I was a massive X-Files fan back in the day and one of my favourite episodes of all time was one of the very first "Squeeze". It was about a human mutant who needed to eat human liver to survive and could literally squeeze into tiny spaces like air conditioning vents.

The series lost its way a little once Duchovny (Mulder) virtually abandoned it. But it was still quality and still is to this day.

For those who are big fans of the series, Empire Magazine did a 20 years anniversary special, and have now placed it all online : X-Files Special (Empire Magazine)

Ironic that a show like x-files which potentially opened many ATSer's minds, is on a network like faux.

Not really, considering most of the subject matter is fictional. Thus tainting the truth that is thrown in here and there. Just like fox news!

Words cannot express how happy I am to be getting anything more from this show. This was my family and I's jam back in the day. We'd get together regularly and watch this. A few years back I purchased a boxed set of select episodes from various seasons dealing only with the mytharc of the show (no "monster of the week" episodes, though those were among the show's best too sometimes, so I later regretted not just buying the series in its entirety lol.) The show still holds up and has stood the test of time.

More than just being one of the few extremely well executed shows about such subject matter, it was also in many ways the prototype for all the super high quality television we've enjoyed since then. Whenever a show like Breaking Bad, The Wire, Hannibal, etc. comes to be, it owes at least a little bit to The X-Files for demonstrating how a TV show could work with higher production values, tense drama, ensemble chemistry, and season to season character development and story arcs.

Then of course there's just the nostalgia factor lol. Anything else they want to bring back from the 90s is fine by me.


My sole concern at this point is: how will I get to watch this? We don't have cable or good reception here. Will it be available for purchase on any streaming services?

Peace.
