The X-Files didn’t get off to a promising start, but if the disappointing premiere scared you off, it’s time to come back. Last night’s episode, “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster,” was the series at its best.
It’s easy to sneer at Hollywood’s obsession with sequels and reboots, but eventually, the dice rolls in your direction. One person’s cynicism is another’s nostalgia. For me, it’s The X-Files, a show that defined my childhood. Last night was a big deal—The X-Files was back. It kinda sucked, and I definitely don’t care.
The truth is still out there, apparently. One of my favorite TV shows of all-time is returning!
