watching some re-runs has convinced me that this show really was very good once.

i have no time to write more now, but i would like to hear some opinions on the show's strengths and weaknesses.

at what point did it tail off? where should they have stopped?

God the show was great until about season 4 or 5. The conspiracy-arc episodes started meandering and it became clear they were basically making it up as they went along.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Friday, 1 October 2004 15:59 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

it got crap when it all became about the conspiracy stuff and there were never any episodes where they just went and did cases.

there are still some great episodes though.

What was that one where they investigated some inbreeding freaks who had been burying their kids in the yard and it turned out the lady of the house had spawned the child of satan or something?

Ah, that would be 'Home', from Season 4. Classic episode, really creepy.

My favorite episode is "Jose Chung's from Outer Space" (from season 3), which is as close as the X-files got to portraying the absurdity of the UFO phenomenon.

i like the alien/ufo episodes in the first three seasons, but after that it's like, "wtf?"

latebloomer (latebloomer), Friday, 1 October 2004 16:20 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

That one episode just REALLY sticks out to me among all of those one-off storylines, which are probably all my favs in retrospect.

The whole tying-loose-threads-together way they began down the alien conspiracy route actually totally drew me in, it was when they started answering the questions I got tired of it. They should've just left it perpetually open-ended or something.

Started to go downhill right after the movie - they went mersh and dumbed down the whole thing. Then Duchovny left, and after that it was like "why bother?"

The finale was one of the most unspectacular things I've ever seen.

Another TV show where it was better left open-ended as nickalicious said, exactly like Twin Peaks. Oh how I long for back in the day, when popular TV was delightfully wacky!

The show was great as long as it was in Vancouver. When Mr Red Shoes forced them to move to LA it lost a lot of the atmosphere for a nicer shine. It's quite noticable in the lighting, the use of sharp lines was basically eliminated.

kyle (akmonday), Saturday, 2 October 2004 16:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

X-Files is a show that I liked in theory better than in practice - good premise, good characters, great actors, technically flawless. I would watch the odd episode and think "this is really good, why don't I watch it more often?" Then I'd tune in a month or two later, be completely baffled as to where the story arc had gone, and tune out again in frustration. This happened during pretty much every season that the show was aired.

Tantrum The Cat (Tantrum The Cat), Saturday, 2 October 2004 16:41 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Never watched in it's heyday, but we're renting alkl the DVD is sequence now. Actually, season 2 disc 4 is in the player right now. I absolutely love them, at least the first two seasons. About 85% of the episodes are total gold; there's the occasional filler, but it's excuseable for brilliant eps. like "Erlenmeyer Flask", "Darkness Falls", "Eve", "Duane Barry/Ascension".

I'm dreading watching the season 6(was it?) move to California; we live in vancouver, and half the fun is identifying the locations (that's the rogers tower in burnaby! that's in gastown! it's the art gallery! stanley park!).

derrick (derrick), Saturday, 2 October 2004 19:16 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I watched the show and was hooked right from the beginning (the third episode, "squeeze" actually), so I guess I always had somewhat of an emotional investment in it.

As for the story arc I have a feeling Chris Carter originally had a rough plan or idea of where he wanted it to go, (I think I even remember him around '95 or so saying he wanted the show to last about five years and then do movies or spinoffs after that). But as the show got more popular, there was pressure to keep it going and drag it out, so the conspiracy-arc episodes started becoming more labyrynthine and covoluted.

My wife and daughter are steadily plowing through the first six seasons. I sit in occasionally if an episode is playing during dinner, but it's just nonstop Mulder and Scully taking turns playing Basil Exposition, except when Scully is screeching at Mulder for whatever he believes in.

Whitman Mayonnaise (Rock Hardy), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 01:30 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Favorites: Bad Blood (vampire story from differing perspectives of Scully and Mulder, Small Potatoes (guy who can change his face to look like anyone, basically), and the episode where Scully and Mulder pretend to be "Rob and Laura Petrie" and they live in some kind of seriously screwed up townhouse/condo association (especially since I lived in a townhouse association at the time).

First episode I ever saw was called Revelations, I think and it scared the holy hell out of me. I didn't watch the show for a couple of years because I kept thinking of the tagline, "the truth is out there..." and then thinking, "but hell if I want to know what it is!" Eventually I was pulled into it, though.

Sara R-C (Sara R-C), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 01:55 (eleven years ago) Permalink

rewatching the mythology episodes on the DVD sets i bought (yeah i'm die hard), the conspiracy arc actually makes A LOT more sense, especially when viewed together rather than spread across several seasons. i mean, it still got sillier as the show got older, but it was a lot more coherent than it seemed.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 02:25 (eleven years ago) Permalink

No, no it wasn't. The pinnacle of "god, this shit is awful" for me was when they reveal the truth about Mulder's sister to the tunes of Moby.

taco freebie (mike h.), Tuesday, 18 July 2006 03:13 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Please tell me it was '1000'.

Search: Seasons 1&2, particulary the three parter at the end of season 2 and the start of season 3. All epsiodes written by Darin Morgan: Humbug, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose, War Of The Coprophages, Jose Chung's From Outer Space (or, the Freaks one, the Psychics one, the Cockroaches one, the Alex Trebek one)

Destroy: the rest of it, more so as it goes on.

Damon Lindelof is ALWAYS remarking on how he doesn't want LOST to go the way of the X-Files. He wants to end it after 4 or 5 seasons, then have a film. But then, it's ABC's choice if they want to milk/ruin it by dragging it out to 9+ seasons.

I too loved the Darin Morgan episodes. What happened to him? Has he written for anything else ever again.

I really liked the COPS crossover where the tv crew following some cops around LA walk slap bang into the middle of an X File.

And my heart still belongs to Gillian Anderson who, judging from her turn in Bleak House, has aged like a fine wine...

this makes me happy:

In the five episodes of the new season made available to critics, the winner is the fourth, “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat.” It was written and directed by Darin Morgan, who also provided the best hour of the show’s revival season in 2016, “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster,” and authored celebrated old-school episodes like “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” and “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space’” back in the 1990s.

“Forehead Sweat” guest-stars Brian Huskey (“People of Earth”) as either a madman or a fellow F.B.I. agent from an alternate dimension who is intimately familiar with the show’s heroes, the alien-chasing feds Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). Mr. Morgan uses this premise to provide the ultimate in fan service — constructing an elaborate meta-story that recapitulates the history of the series, with a cracked version of “The Twilight Zone” as a framing device, and wallows in specific references to past “X-Files” installments (including “Clyde Bruckman’s”).

This episode apparently retconned the previous episode into a “hasn’t happened yet” alternate/possible future sent as a vision to Scully from she and Mulder’s psychic part-alien son, William. Who is apparently not Mulder’s son but a product of genetic engineering and artificial insemination by CSM (aka Cancer Man, aka CGB Spender, aka Carl Gerhardt Bush, aka Mulder and Mulder’s half-brother Jeffrey Spender’s biological father) using “alien science” either taken from or given to the government by extraterrestrials, who may or may not had plans to colonize the earth, depending on which version of the conspiracy you believe. This all may be a lie or half-truth or a smokescreen or the actual truth.

Pretty straightforward!

Caught up on the last two. Tonight's episode was okay, but I can state unequivocally that the season premiere is the worst X-Files episode I've ever seen. By some distance. If Carter refuses to keep his fingers out of the pie, it's probably for the best that it's ending.

No, seriously: it was really, really fucking bad.

the smartest persin in the room (Old Lunch), Thursday, 11 January 2018 03:24 (five days ago) Permalink

It's funny that the second episode was about people being uploaded into virtual reality because I kept thinking during the premiere, 'oh, this is such an OTT awful episode that they're going to eventually reveal that everyone is stuck in some kind of simulated purgatory' but no.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that it's terrible, although I feared the worst. Maybe better I just don't watch.

davey, Thursday, 11 January 2018 03:32 (five days ago) Permalink

the second one kind of falls apart in the end, as far as the episode's plot goes (that's not how computers work and the coda explains it for us), but at least demonstrates a comprehension of what a plot and characterization look like

but it gives us actual action, with the comedic acknowledgment that Mulder is _not made for action_ because he looks like he's gonna vomit and then die

then it has actual Mulder/Scully banter, jokes about Scully that come off as eye-rolly and a little funny without being offensive by modern standards, references good parts of the original (grave of informant character!), gets Skinner in there without him being overwrought. and Mulder has a house! and it's very Mulder-like

there's a brief moment that has forced connective tissue to a seasonal overriding plot that's luckily forgettable

don't watch the first episode unless you just want to kill time or can pay partial attention

this is probably better duchovny than he or we should expect, and we don't deserve modern gillian anderson in a tv series with this much baggage

That first episode (and yes, I'm still stewing) was like one of those YouTube videos where someone's mom explains Star Wars without having seen Star Wars except instead of someone's mom it's some dumb guy who knows a little about the X-Files (like the main characters' names and that they're in the alien police or whatever) but has fairly open contempt for it and is given a whole bunch of money to film his idea of what an X-Files episode is like, and instead of being charming it's kind of an insulting slog where you're just like, dude we gave you a bunch of money, we hoped you'd at least put some effort into it. Except the twist is that the dumb and contempuously uninterested dude was the actual creator of the show the whole time.

And yes, I've seen bad X-Files episodes before and yes, I watched last season and acknowledge that the Carter episodes were previously probably the worst of the series. This was worse.

Oh boy. I just watched the first episode. It had the feel of a two hour premiere edited sloppily down to one hour. I think I was too distracted by the poor filmaking to follow what Cancer Man’s plan is. He just wants to kill everyone except select people he’s injected with alien serum? There was a certain elegance to the character back when we thought he was a guy who resignedly did evil stuff for the preservation of the human race, but now he’s just a supervillain. And wtf with that retcon about knocking up Scully? So William is half human/half alien but with two human parents? And why was Mulder wearing sunglasses half the time?

wrt both of the new episodes, the resurgence of the Skinner distrust is so goddamn 'come the fuck on already'. Every one of you has been compromised by the CSM multiple times over at this point, you know how this shit goes, and Skinner has saved your asses or put his neck on the line approximately 815 times over the course of a quarter decade.
