...or did someone forget to tell the Chris Carter that we're now in a Golden Age of television?

 

Maybe I'm just spoiled by the current wealth of great writing and it was always that bad, but it seems worse.  I can't say much for the acting either, though they were never known for their great acting abilities.

 

I'm still interested in the plot, but the ultra hack writing is going to be tough to swallow.  At least it's only five more episodes.

 

They should have gotten Vince Gilligan to write these, he could have done it in his sleep.

See I thought it was decent. Then again my standards are exceptionally low. To me it really had the feel of one of the first few seasons of the original.

Fair enough, I'm probably just being crabby.  The thing is, I'm not comparing him so much to the original series, but more Californication, and it struck me as a drop-off, so I assumed the writing couldn't be saved by the delivery.  Also, they seem so tired and confused, as if the production was a tough slog.

 

HOWEVER, I've only seen the first one, and will watch the rest with a fresh head.

Deth i completely agree, i thought i was alone because the reviews have been giving high marks but not without bias and not without leaving out their feelings of nostalgia. You cant just say the show is great because they decided to work together again under the title X-Files. I was really disappointed.

I'm currently still watching the X-files with a friend, which I started almost exactly a year ago. Things have been really slow though, but we're 2 seasons away from watching all the old stuff.

 

The acting has always been less than stellar, but very entertaining. And maybe you're also forgetting that half the episodes has pretty damn mediocre writing.
