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 seems that this time they are not in a hurry, and that at some point they have breathed, reflected on what they want to offer the public. [Full Review in Spanish]

This season, the series, which turns 25 in September, rolls out current news images - North Korea and President Trump, among them - to remind us of those dangers. Still, it doesn't let that overpower the basic appeal of the show.

Early episodes seem stronger this time around with some added timeliness - Russians infiltrating the U.S. government! - and a major mythology reveal in the first episode back.
December 28, 2018
Based on five episodes made available for preview, things remain uneven -- the first episode is dragged down by more conspiracy blather, interminable voiceover and way too many apocalyptic predictions of doom.

Fortunately, the follow-up season is a vast improvement.

I'm glad Gillian Anderson isn't coming back for next season because if this is the direction the show is taking us, it's time for it to end.

I think they're good enough, and entertaining enough, that I hope more episodes of The X-Files will be produced. To quote Mulder's poster: "I want to believe."

It's hard not to be uplifted by Mulder's rambling about hellhounds, the underworld, magic protection circles, and the like, all for Scully's signature eye roll and sigh.

It's time for the veteran creator to let others find the truth out there.

Happily, with episode one out of the way, The X-Files clicks back into groove, swiftly reminding us why we all loved it so much in the first place.

Once we were charmed by this gloriously imaginative fiction, but with this latest iteration Chris Carter has only managed to weave a tapestry of unparalleled nonsense.

Certainly if you are among those of us who will never stop wanting to believe, more time with our beloved alien chasers as they trade barbs while battling beasties is always cause for celebration.

And if you are not already a fan, there is no good reason to watch Season 11. The opening episode verged on soap opera, bloated with cringey dialogue and breathy conspiracies.

Season 11... is still uneven, but far more satisfying than the warmed-over mysteries of last season.
January 4, 2018
... a chance to make the show relevant to a new generation of viewers who aren't watching out of nostalgia or habit.
January 4, 2018
If only Fox would do us a favor and stop bringing this one back. Fans get their hopes up, only to see them crushed again.
January 3, 2018
It's a pleasant, clever, and sometimes inspired reunion with old friends who were right on the verge of wearing out their welcome when they suddenly reminded you of all the reasons why you loved them in the first place.
January 3, 2018
It comes off less as an exercise in brand revival and more a genuine new season of "The X-Files."
