They were only a couple in two episodes IIRC. The season 8 finale was when they got together (and the true ending of the show IMO) and then Mulder disappeared until the series finale at the end of season 9. There's also the 2nd movie but let's just forget that ever happened.
Just a heads up there's another episode tonight in america, so S10E02 should be available to download tomorrow morning. I thought the first episode was ok, not quite sure what to think about some of the mythology referenced in this episode (seemed like they retconned everything that came before as simply "the truth it was all planned from the beginning" "all a setup etc etc") as I didn't bother to watch all of 1-9 again and the last time I watched the show properly was around the time season 9 aired and finished.
The everything that has happened before - you know the stuff you were meant to care about for 9 years - was a lie was a bit rough. Really just want them to get on with it. Part of me wishes it had been more monster of the week style - rather then adding to the myth-arc stuff.
Second episode was better, I feel, bit still... I dunno.
Gonna sound weird but it felt like an episode of Fringe. I dunno whether it's the higher production values or what, and I know it's weird to say that it felt like Fringe given how derivative of The X Files Fringe always was, but it didn't... scratch that itch, you know?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting it to be just like it always was like some battered housewife going back to her high school boyfriend, but I think that because of the six episode limit they're trying to make every moment as X-Filesy as possible meaning there's no moments for actual personality to shine through. It feels like someone doing an impression of the X Files.
(strawberry float I sound like a twat. Ignore me, I did quite like this one. I think the problem is that it was just good enough that it reminded how amazing the show was at its best).
