I was one of the few that liked the Chris Carter episodes last season, but I wasn't so keen on this one. It had a few good ideas and the last 10 mins or so we're pretty good, but the rest just felt like a really cheap, poorly made, 90s drama. I don't know if it was the directing or acting but something was off.
Saw the first episode and as before, someone should have taken Chris Carter aside and offered him a nice field to wander around as Executive Producer and allow the younger, better X Files writers to take complete control.
I sat through episode one that got a little decent towards the end, just so I can get to episode 2.
