Critic Reviews for The X-Files: Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

"Drive" in turn becomes a memorably scary X-Files episode - not for any particular monster or alien presence, but because of the perhaps most frightening element of the show's world ever: mankind itself.

November 21, 2017 | Full Review…

I'm glad they wrapped this storyline up before it got any more mystifying but it's also way too open-ended to be satisfying.

September 27, 2017 | Full Review…

It's clear a lot of love was poured into this one, effectively a love letter to those who worship at the altar of the show.

October 14, 2017 | Full Review…

The Alien Rebels kill the entire Syndicate, so you'd think the government conspiracy is over, and we don't have to worry about alien colonization anymore. You'd be wrong. The mythology manages to somehow drag on for three more seasons.

October 14, 2017 | Full Review…

This was a series still alive with all of the possibilities of being a big, hit television show. It was, in other words, a show playing offense, not a show trying to hang onto its audience for dear life.
