    I loved this show but the last couple seasons seemed to fall off the rails for me. Watching the clip in the link, it looks like they are getting back to what made the show such a classic.

    One of my top 5 series of all time...probably top 3 ( it and the four season "Spartacus" whose first season was phenomenal and "The Sopranos" except for that ending...). Can't wait to see Mulder and Scully again. Wish it was coming back full time.

    Nevermind. I thought this was about the X-Men.

    I'm a Duchovny fan, and I had to stop watching after the horned lizard dude episode. Brutal tv.
    Gillian Anderson looks amazing tho.

    I always wondered why neither of them carried a camera. Would have provided proof and solved many mysteries on the show.

    So I never did finish watching season 10 as I thought it was... well... (sorry if I offend any hardcore fans) terrible.

    But then, something pretty cool happened, my awesome girlfriend convinced me that I shouldn't judge the franchise based on S10, which she also considered very bad.
    As as result, slowly, but surely, we've made our way through seasons 1 - 8, now in the middle of Season 9.

    I would rate 1-6 very good.
    7 was ok.
    8 was ok for the first half and then got bad in a hurry.
    Season 9 is an absolute steamy pile of doggy dung and they basically carried the dung into the reboot, which makes me not very optimistic for S11.

    Is that the general consensus of other X files fans ? Or did anyone think Season 9 and 10 were good ?

    Coincidentally, or maybe not so much, I loved almost every episode Vince Gilligan wrote or co-wrote. That dude was obviously a genius long before Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul.

    The X-Files is one of my all time favorite shows. I was hooked from the start when I first saw the Victor Toombs character slither his way through the air vents...

    I rewatched the original nine seasons before I sat down to tackle the six episode season ten, and concur with what you have said above, eyemissgilmour. Seasons 3-4-5-6 were phenomenal, and really were the best of the best episodes. Season 8 was hit and miss, while the last two (9&10) weren't much to write home about. I will watch season 11 if for no other reason that the chemistry between Duchovny and Anderson is still there.

    And yeah, I thought Gillian Anderson still rocks on the hot scale. I still refer to her as my TV girlfriend. My wife is fine with that so long as she stays a TV girlfriend only. LOL
