X-Files is in my mind one of best TV-series ever made. Why
you may ask. Cause it grasped something that many people think
is thrilling, but maybe not something they talk about very
The first 3-4 seasons was brilliant with fantastic stories
that made the series enormous popular. After that the quality
in the stories started to vary. That was of course naturally,
cause people always expect more. It's hard to always top the
stuff that you already made.
Mulder and Scully
Mulder was X-Files for me and for many with me. He was the
true believer that saw things, understood things that no one
else would even consider possible.
Scully of course also played a key part in making this series
what it is, but without Mulder opening here eyes she would
just have been a normal agent. But she managed to get Mulders
feet on the ground from time to time. What she did manage
was to keep X-Files from taking completely off. You may say
it did, but I don't think it really did. Of course the cases
they was working on was the not the common ones, but some
could have happened I think.
What about Doggeth and Reyes?
the new characters (Doggeth and Reyes) ever live up to Mulder
and Scully? Probably not, cause its hard to recreate what
made X-Files into a phenomenon. That includes everything from
Mulders need to find out what happened to his sister and Mulder
and Scully relationship. Mulder was a true believer from day
one and the X-Files was his mission in life. If the creators
manage to bring X-Files back to life I would be really glad,
but I'm still not sure it would be X-Files. It's like if you
successfully clone a person it still wouldn't be the same
person no would it. I'm a believer, but still no Mulder.
The X-Files coming to an end
After season eight Mulder leaves the X-Files for good and
by that in many ways killed the series, for me anyway. This
is my meaning without even have had the possibility to see
season nine. Just finishing season eight here in Norway. Mulder
was X-Files from day one and X-Files evolved with him. Seems
like Chris Carter also agrees with me as they have decided
to end the series after season nine. Nice to hear that David
is coming back to play Mulder again for the final episode.
That's really nice, I'm already looking forward to that episode.
Thanks to the people that made X-Files.
