Let’s Talk X-Files

I’ve been a fan of X-Files since the old days. I always loved Mulder and Scully and found he storyline fascinating, but last night’s episode took it to a new level. Not only did they promise us answers that they didn’t provide, they plunged us into the midst of chaos and then pulled the plug again. Of course, I’m not naive enough to think that the X-Files is really over, but according to the producers, if they do return there is no timeline for it. Nothing has been written — which, of course, means they don’t know how it all ends either.

To be honest, when they introduced the two young agents with traits remarkably similar to the young Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, I thought we were heading down the road to a spin off. ┬áThat doesn’t appear to be the case.

I suppose if we have waited 14 years to see our beloved Mulder and Scully again (isn’t it amazing how quickly we got past their more mature look?) that we can wait for FOX to decide what it wants to do next. I, for one, found it a refreshing walk down memory lane that didn’t get bogged down with nostalgia, yet honored the couple’s younger years.

I know I will be waiting and watching for X-Files to return in full force and I hope you will too.

UPDATE: 7/9/2017

I read recently that FOX has officially announced a 10-episode revival of X-Files to be aired in the 2017-2018 season.
