TV Review: The X-Files "My Struggle II" (Season Finale)

Aliens, please abduct Chris Carter. Review by Brandon Wolfe One of the greatest pitfalls of our current recycle-bin culture is that some of the nostalgic curios being dusted off almost certainly belong dead, and The X-Files has sadly proved emblematic of this hazard. The idea of Mulder and Scully returning once more into the paranormal fray sounds fantastic at first blush until you stop to recall that The X-Files has already died a series of ignoble deaths. There was the slow decline of the original series’ run into a morass of wheezy misguidedness.

Do You Believe? #TheXFiles Official Trailer

The miniseries picks up with David Duchovny 's Mulder and Gillian Anderson 's Scully in very different places in their lives, but still committed to finding the truth behind the big conspiracies that have plagued them. But there’s also time to investigate other mysteries, too... And yes, there are definitely going to be appearances by old favourites such as William B. Davis' Cigarette Smoking Man, despite his seeming death by giant bloomin’ missile in the series finale back in 2002. And the likes of Mitch Pileggi, Annabeth Gish, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, Bruce Harwood and Nicholas Lea are all back in some fashion. Mostly it seems like everyone is a bit more beardy. Well, not Scully. Watch the trailer after the Jump... Joel McHale, Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell and Rhys Darby are among the new co-stars, Chris Carter is at the controls as always, and The X-Files is back, at least on US screens, on January 24 next year.
