Two thumbs up on the "monster of the week" format. That was The X-Files at its best.I am struggling with the X-files. I was really looking forward to it, but really didn't want to get bogged down by the conspiracy, big story line part of it. My favorite thing about the x-files was the 'monster of the week' episodes and after the first new episode I was ready to be disappointed by the miniseries. The second one brought it back a little bit for me, but it still feels like it's missing its heart a little bit. There was a scene between Fox and Scully that reminded me of the scene with Leah and Han in The Force Awakens, it was poorly written and felt so forced.
But contrary to many issues I seem to have with it, (apparently I don't like anything any more) I will keep watching and try to enjoy it for what it is.

Even with the original series, I lost interest as emphasis moved from dealing with creative creatures to the worldwide conspiracy. Never been much of a conspiracy buff.Strange, that is the opposite of the vibe I got from everyone else here. They are certainly very different - the out and out humourous verses the X-Files mythological - and I'm not certain which kind I liked best. I did like the funny ones, but then, maybe they were just too silly. However, I have to agree with Mr. Orange that the mytholgical ones were a little heavy going.

Fox said Thursday it has ordered a second chapter of what it's calling an X-Files "event series." The 10-episode series will air during the upcoming 2017-18 TV season.
