I’ve already professed my love for the X-Files of old in an earlier post, but now that we’re halfway through the newest foray into aliens, monsters, and Sculder (oh, my!), I thought it would be a good time to revisit it. Needless to say, I’m not the only one excited about it!

Certainly, we didn’t bring it back with the idea of ending it.” So yes – I want to believe this isn’t the end.
So far, we’ve had a completely underwhelming first episode, a better but still not there yet second episode (seriously, what was up with the Scully/Mulder dialog? I half expected to see them holding scripts behind their backs, it was so stilted and forced), and a, “HELL YEAH! That’s what I’m talking ’bout” third episode. Which one has been your favorite so far? Are you hoping we get a Season 11, or do you think the
truth magic is no longer out there? Oh, and what was your favorite Easter Egg from this latest ep? Please shout out in the comment section with your thoughts – I promise it’s a Jackalope-free zone.
