Looking forward to the next episode
25 January 2016 | by radamantheSee all my reviews

Well the actors may have aged, but when you hear after so many years that eerie theme music again you are transported back in time to your adolescence. This reboot doesn't offer anything original, it uses the same old tropes all X-Files fans know by now, and incorporates new elements of contemporary conspiracy mongers.I am eager to see the direction they will go with this. Even though the dialogue feels a little too predictable and stilted, the story line provides enough to pique one's interest, especially since an old acquaintance makes an appearance during the final scene of the episode. This episode provided an adequate introduction to the rebooted show by trying to give some background to our old main characters and introducing new ones. My vote is seven.
