August 18, 2019
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I honestly can't tell whether or not Mulder's dialogue is supposed to sound ridiculous (in the second episode he utters this baffling phrase: "Scully, you looked so adorbs").

The adjustments made for the opening episode show less of the kind of creative skills that made episodes like "Triangle," "Home" and "Ice" so memorable and come across as a uninspired solution to what looked like an unfixable situation.

A lot of the return to night is devoted to chase scenes and makes one appreciate by comparison how much better a reboot "Twin Peaks" was last year.
