we got any X-Files fans here?
what's you're favorite season?
what did you think of the Mytharc that ran through the entire 9 season run?
who's you're favorite character?
you're favorite bad guy?
Of course I dug it.
Here's a news bit I put up before. Check out Starleafgirl's comment for a last episode recap.
Have season one through five on DVD. As far as I am concerned the show ended with the film (between five and six), because it really went downhill from there. It became increasingly obvious that Chris Carter had never actually worked out what the grand conspiracy was, yet he spent waaaay too much time on it.
Give me the little one-shot episodes like Hell Money, Clyde Buckman's Last Repose, Beyond the Sea, Die Hand Die Verlitz, 2Shy, Humbug, Kill Switch, Shadows, etc. Those were freakin' awesome. The best the grand conspiracy got was Anasazi/Blessing Way/Paper Clip. That was the highlight.
I loved all the characters, Mulder, Scully, Skinner, the Lone Gunmen, Mr. X...
Probably my favorite bad guy? CSM was an incredible creation, but I loved Well Manicured Man.
Favorite Monster? Leonard Betts.

"Ok, i've finally seen the full movie...I won't read what you wrote. I'm bummed this wasn't in the theatres that long. By the time I tried going to see it, it was nowhere to be found.
First things first...
and wow, just wow...
the new movie blows the first away by miles...
it really feels like it's back to the original series, the medical research, the psychics, the team work, the usual b!tchyness and stupidity of the FBI lol
it feels like the first 4 series again, while i came into the movie hoping for a conclusion to the 'cancerman aliens' arc that spread through the entire series of X-Files, what i found was an amazing movie that really blew me away with amazing writing and not a flashy special effect in sight.
there are more than a few twists and turns in the plot, enough to keep any X-Files fan guessing and the guest star of Billy Connoly playing a paedophile priest was just perfect casting and an amazing character that really grabbed my attention.
The one thing i really didn't see coming was the fact that Mulder and Scully are now in a relationship and apparently have been for several years... but again, it really worked in the overall storyline and actually made sense for the larger plot of the series.
the stem cell research and the medical details really grabbed me as it really brought Scully into the limelight, back to her original medical background and working in her own way to fight for her beliefs with Mulder helping her, or challenging her every step of the way.
i have to give this movie 9 / 10, it only looses one point for dropping the sexual tension between Mulder and Scully that had been brewing for so many years, but the final conclusion to the movie was something i never saw coming and i walked out of the movie actually feeling good about the X-Files again rather than the feeling of "Did i just pay for that?" that i got from the last movie.
Seriously, go and see the movie. it's a brilliant piece of film and stands firm as an X-files movie in it's own right that could quite happily have been attached to the end of the series as a conclusion.
