Critic Reviews for The X-Files: Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

The X-Files succeeds as addictive B-film entertainment because it treats its cheesy material - ''inspired by actual documented events'' - with absolute seriousness.

January 5, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a clever show that teen-age viewers especially ought to love.

January 26, 2015 | Full Review…

If the producers can keep the mood spooky, this show will have its devoted adherents. Deservedly so.

January 26, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This dark sci-fi drama can be very scary at times, sometimes depicting monsters, deformed humans, disturbing scenarios, and violent acts. The show's mythology centers on government conspiracy, cover-ups, and the possibility of alien abductions.

January 5, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Though the show works with a certain unintended camp kick, at the moment "X" doesn't mark the spot where viewers can find involving drama by way of Stephen King-esque actions.

April 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Mandel's cool direction of Carter's ingenious script and the artful presentation itself give TV sci-fi a boost.
