News & Interviews for The X-Files: Season 10
Give six writer/directors six chances to do whatever they want with these iconic characters. It's a great idea for a series that can't just repeat itself as it will inherently feel nostalgic.
After just one episode of the upcoming six, The X-Files feels like a faded relic, barely clinging to what once made it great.
Regardless, hungry fans are probably thrilled to have the show back in whatever capacity. The smartest thing that this revival does is play to those fans, who will forgive its flaws, while limiting the run to a six-episode taste.
The third episode, not coincidentally the one in which the show rediscovers its dry sense of humor, finally gets on track.
Above-average special effects and the presence of two old and beloved friends - you know who! - more than make up for an eye-rolling new premise.
Don't be discouraged by the utter incoherence of the first hour: The spirit of the show is still here, waiting to be drawn out, and each installment is better than the last.
It's great to have Mulder and Scully back on our screens again.
After the lackluster premiere, the miniseries may only be satisfying to those who want to believe.
As brilliant as Dana Scully was, and as badly as young women needed her, she remained frustratingly beyond the grasp of the men who wrote her.
It's still pretty lame. But with enough embers of the fire that the show once was to get me to stick with it.
I worry for the mythology-laden closer, to burden itself with just as much overwrought melodrama and nostalgia as its predecessor, let alone provide some kind of reasonable closure.
Audience Reviews for The X-Files: Season 10
Sep 30, 2019Although enjoyable and definitely worth a watch for X-files fans, a 6-episode season wasn't enough to fit both myths and monster episodes.
Mar 11, 2019This is one of the best shows of all history. Cannot recommend it enough!
Feb 02, 2019Banking on the nostalgia factor, a beloved 90s duo is reunited in a world that is much more digital. A relatively short season, where the "filler" episodes actually appear to be stronger than the serial arc the first and last episode create, it's not necessarily a bittersweet return to the FBI's most unwanted, especially as they appear to have a new, younger set of agents that mirror their younger selves.
Mar 09, 2018a great return when compared to where we left this series in season 9. I found the first four episodes pretty entertaining. With only six in total, the pressure was on, so even decent episodes seemed to fall short after the long wait. my complaint for some of these would be the commixing of stand alone with the story arch. "home again" was a fantastic monster of the week story, but the loss in scully's life means it is not something that can be re-watched again and again, because the mood of the two stories do not mix well. overall, however, I am so grateful all involved gave us six more episodes.
Feb 07, 2018The revival seems to run on pure shipping. The new mythology arc is very convoluted and contrived, it doesn't feel authentic like the creative myth arcs from the past which were also convoluted but at least felt real to the universe. The monster episodes were still great fun, but sadly they devoted too much time to the arcing story line.
Jan 05, 2018I think once you throw out preconceived notions of what it will be, this reboot is great. Loved Ep 3. Don't be so cool as to be over it, it really is good, brings a smile to my face to see them again in new eps. Thanks to them all for the hard work.
Dec 30, 2017I will give it an extra star because of one episode. Mulder and Scully meet the were-monster is a great episode, the rest sadly are not. The main problem here is Chris Carter. He wants to keep the previous conspiracy and it just feels outdated nowadays. From the first episode you feel underwhelmed and seeing Mulder and Scully together should not be! They need to jettison all of the previous storylines and mythology and start afresh. It has a bogged down feeling. The constant thread of their child is boring. Go back to making stand alone monster of the week episodes and build a NEW conspiracy/mythology that is relevant to today. If the show gets rid of Chris Carter (I know he created the show but he also kept it going long past its sell by date and, again has delivered stale episodes.) and, gets new writers it could be fun. Mulder and Scully and the fans want the X-FILES but they want good X-Files not mediocre. Sidenote: why is Gillian wearing a wig? and a blonde wig? very noticeable
Dec 26, 2017Overall all story line was okay but sometimes didn't make sense. The acting was also sub par, the guest stars sometimes overshadowing the main characters. I was happy with the humor in this season, but I'm hoping season 11 will redeem season 10.
Oct 08, 2017guys, it's time for answers. that's the only reason i keep tuning in. last season was a complete waste.
Sep 18, 2017This was a fun event season full of the humor and intrigue the xfiles is known for. I only wish it were longer. Definitely watch this!
