I am cautiously curious. Hopefully this will be X-Files seasons 1-4 and not post-season 4.

This can't be successful. It's tied to a time and place. Anything trying to capture X-Files spirit can't go back there. PoI is probably a better X-FIles for today than making new X-FIles today.

I know, I know!  I'm shivering with anticipation already!  Or maybe that's just prickly heat.  Anyway, I can't wait either!  I'm nearly finished watching the old ones now just to be ready.

I really hope it doesn't suck.  I will cry real tears if it does.

I wish they'd "rebooted" Millennium instead of X-Files (and I'm sure they would have gotten Lance Henriksen alot cheaper/easier than the David Duchovny / Gillian Anderson -duo... considering Lance has been doing Asylum movies lately).

Yeah.  I mean, I'll be watching this anyway, but mostly out of morbid curiosity.  No expectation of it being a tenth as good as the old show.

Duchovny and Anderson have done what, exactly, recently?  I think this is budget friendly.

I'd really like it if they started it with Mulder waking up and realizing everything since he left the series (and, honestly, everything for about a season or so prior to that) was a coma based dream.  Maybe even set the series in the 90s.

Californication. Which was spectacular up until the last season, which is par for nearly all television (including say, Rome).  Gillian Anderson is in the hottest show currently on television and stars in the upcoming season (Hannibal).

Budget has nothing to fucking do with it. They could get any amount of money they want.

I think I have seen one or both of the movies, but never watched the show. Really need to go back and binge it.

I tried getting through the whole show a few years back, but the shitty monster of the week episodes really turned me off. If they were all aliens/conspiracy focused I might have been able to get through it.

I thought Californication ended a ways back.  My mistake.  Looks like Duchovny was making $200K per episode and Anderson $100K per episode for Hannibal - not the cheapest.

I kind of liked the "Monster of the Week/Twilight Zone/Alien Conspiracy" rotation, It kept things entertaining without having it bog down in "How are we going to come up with 20+ episodes of Alien Conspiracy stuff this season" wheel-spinning. The "Twilight Zone" episodes were the best in a lot of ways, it let them bring in a lot of Science Fiction authors with weird and interesting ideas, the MotW episodes were more filler than anything else, but some of them were still really fun (like the "COPS Crossover" episode).

Without X-Files, I don't think we ever would have seen the Whedonverse, or any of the other "Spiritual Successors" like Supernatural. Prime time science fiction was deader than dogshit until the X-Files Friday Night Miracle.

EDIT: Here's the semi-official "Mythology" episode list, and here is a fan-created list that includes a few episodes the "Mythology" set doesn't, mostly because they introduce or explore characters that were important in that arc (Kryzek and Smoking Man, mostly).

EDIT2: I guess I should say "Non Space Opera" sci-fi was dead, and people were getting burned out on that.

I generally preferred the MOTW/TZ episodes, myself. The mythology stuff kind of got up its own ass after a while.

Ditto.  I think that's part of why the movies sucked -- they focused on the least fun part of the series.

Both the monster and storyline episodes were fine, for the first three seasons or so. Show totally took a nosedive after that.

This. It really fell off after that episode where they found the alien ship in the desert for a cliffhanger. This was one of those shows that needed a definite ending date so someone could say "FINISH IT, YOU FUCK!" because despite the show having ended, the story has still not been given anything like an ending. To me, the alien stuff was the most interesting, and the first movie was a good continuation of that, but it did seriously disappear up its own ass after season 3. The monster of the week shows were filler but some of them were really well done. I mean, the hair fetish serial killer guy Donnie was an episode that STILL creeps me out, and the actor that played Donnie should have gotten a lot bigger roles than he did afterwards.

The Unnatural is one of my very favorite hours of television ever.

Which was interestingly a MotW and Conspiracy episode... and just well done.

Yeah that was one of the shows I watched religiously until Duchovny left. And every Tuesday I would eat sushi and discuss Sunday's episode with the head chef there.

Hell, even after Duchovny left, I still enjoyed the show and thought Robert Patrick did a real nice job.

So now that this has been greenlighted can we get Firefly back for a 6 episode revival? Please?
