The return of The X-Files: 2016
- my autographed postcard of David Duchovny :)
This week's DVD rental is The X-Files (season 10) ...
The tenth season of the American science fiction television series The X-Files commenced airing in the United States on January 24, 2016, on Fox. The season consists of six episodes .... The season takes place fourteen years after the ninth season, which concluded airing in May 2002, and seven years after the film The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008).
So, a sort of miniseries that picks up fourteen years after the original ended. I've only watched two of the episodes so far, but it appears that Mulder and Scully, both no longer with the FBI, have broken off their romantic relationship, Scully going back to being a doctor and Mulder apparently at loose ends. They re-unite when FBI director and friend Walter Skinner asks them to come back to their jobs and to the X-Files at the FBI to work on a case.
I loved the original series and it was fun to see the X-Files characters again. Scully seems a bit embalmed but Skinner appears almost the same and Mulder still has his dogged determination to find the truth. Here are a couple of reviews ...
