The X-Files: Discussion Thread

I think 8-10 is the max Gillian Anderson would go for given her busy schedule (she's also just picked up Bryan Fuller's American Gods on HBO). That being said, I think 6 would have been fine with more skilled writers and a cohesive thread through the stories. I enjoyed the whole thing as a messy romp of good and bad, but I am not that invested in TXF.

Glad they got the right number of episodes this time.


They could've done it with six, really, but Chris Carter's overbearing hand really damaged the quality on the last season - it varied between great fun, mediocre and outright terrible from week to week, and both the premiere and finale were very bad thanks to him.  He's a great idea man but when it comes to individual episodes he's more and more the show's worst enemy.


I would like to believe he'll have a more hands-on writers' room with stronger collaboration this time, but I have my doubts. Either way, I'll still enjoy seeing it.
