    Saw the first two episodes and they were excellent.


    The third show about Were Wolfs was absolutely fucking harrrrrrible.

    Gonna watch the 4th episode tomorrow hope its better than the last one.


    And plz dont ruin thing with me with spoilers.

    Just be vague if you have anything to add.

    Thanks,


    GP

    Nope... Huge disappointment.

    Not sure what they were aiming for, but these new ones remind me exactly zero of the series I enjoyed as a teenager in the 90s

    I thought the first two were awesome.

    But the were wolf episode totally threw me for a loop.

    Nothing suspenseful.

    It was just down right drawn out and BAD.

    Shame on Chris Carter.

    I'm a fan of some of the original show, but the show kinda fell apart in the last 2-3 seasons, and this new version is just kinda all over the place. I did like the first episode, and reviews on the final show indicate it goes out with a bang. The episodes inbetween were kinda "eh."

    Although I never watched every episode of the original series, I can see that it was trying to push the envelope. From the campy serial to the hardcore UFO episodes, they were all over the map -- on purpose. And this new season follows through with that philosophy.

    I'm still making my way through this list from the original series

    http://www.tvguide.com/special/wint...les-best-episodes-to-watch-before-it-returns/

    and it has a nice sampling of everything. However, there is one episode so far which made me think FUCK YEAH, this is what X-Files is really all about. It has everything in it -- aliens, a UFO, the cigarette smoking man, secret government files, a secret tape, Skinner, the nerds, a Nazi, the secret society, etc.

    If you have Hulu, get off your ass (well...get on your ass) and watch S3 E2. It is THE SHIT.

    After I get done watching this list, I'm going back to watch the episodes around S3 E2.
