Critic Reviews for The X-Files Season 8

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Sunday's eighth-season premiere and next week's followup episode are doozies.

Oct 25, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

So much of this season felt like trudging through muck in search of diamonds.

Sep 27, 2017 | Full Review…

The X-Files still poses questions whose answers will cause a stir among long-time fans who haven't completely given up on this aging series.

Jan 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Even true-blue fans, I suspect, will come away disappointed by the glacially paced plot and the tiresome reappearance of an old fiend, that shape-shifting, green-blooded, alien bounty hunter.

Jan 26, 2015 | Full Review…

I've invested so many years in watching The X-Files, that I'm not about to give it up easily. With even a slight promise of something actually happening on the series, I will check it out next week.

Jan 23, 2015 | Full Review…

You've got to hand it to creator Chris Carter: There's no dust gathering on The X-Files.

Jan 5, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The simplicity is a godsend in a show that at times seemed to have its head so far up its ass that it would never see the daylight again.

Jan 5, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It will take a stroke of genius to sustain the show through another season.

Jan 23, 2015 | Full Review…

The post-Mulder episodes are on the dull side. And the season as a whole is a serviceable study of how quickly a good show can go bad-the fragile nature of good television.
