Well, if memory serves the pilot of X-Files as well as the first few shows weren't exactly barn burners themselves.

I really wish the mainstream movie producers would stop putting out unbelievable movies and television series. Fringe was a big disappointment because I know we don't have any chemical agent that can dissolve human flesh that fast with such a small quantity administered.
Do they think we are all retards or something, and that because it has numerous flashes and explosions we will overlook the absurdity of the science. Just more of the same old crap that plays down to most of us.

OK, I watched the pilot last night, and I have to comment on this. The X-Files was a MUCH better show. By far!
The dialogue last night was very poorly written, cheesy, and at times made me want to gag.
Come on, the female agent goes around barking orders to everyone, and they all do what she wants, even her supervisor?
The dusty Harvard basement was renovated into a sophisticated lab in about 5 minutes, and the mad scientist's son who supposedly had not been in contact with his dad somehow knew exactly what to do to help. Oh, and they synthesized '___' in a couple of hours.
I can suspend my disbelief when the show is good, but last night's episode did NOT leave me wanting more. The best part of the show were the special effects, which did not make up for the bad writing or lame plot.
If they were going to spend all this time, effort, and money to make a new show, couldn't they have at least hired some decent screenwriters?
Anyway, my .02. YMMV.
