No one was more caught up in the return of the X-Files than me. The original series was more than a show. It represented a way of looking at the world and seeing the misuse of power and transparency around us.
Yes, we all enjoy a good Monster of the Week (MoW) episode. Yes, we all like the soap opera aspect of will Mulder and Scully get together, get back together, get back together again.
Still, this series’ succeeded by keeping the main thing the main thing. The conspiracy and the aliens are and always will be the main thing in the X-Files
Thus far, Season 10 has been a roller coaster. Episodes 1 and 2 brought the conspiracy idea into the 21st century by introducing a thinly-veiled Alex Jones character and ended with The Smoking Man bemoaning the reopening of the X-Files. I thought, I’m buckled in and ready.
Episode 3 was a fun play on the MoW genre and was enjoyable and entertaining enough to pardon. Episode 4, frankly, underwhelmed me. This was a fine episode if a show was on a multi-year run, but it didn’t strike me as a 1 of 6 come back episode.
Tonight we shall see if Episode 5 sets us back on track. Personally, I’d love to see a full revival, but I don’t think Duchovny and Anderson support it. However, if these last two episodes don’t make the main thing the main thing, it may not matter.
The truth is still out there and in you.
