#5 - Babylon by Chris Carter.

Very odd story. Didn't work for me at all, except Mulder's trip was amusing.

Bummer - I'd thought the Lone Gunmen were gonna come back to life somehow..

Yeah, that one was wacky. I enjoyed some of the banter between Mulder and Einstein but that terrorism plot was pretty bad. Like something that should have been performed by the Team America marionettes.

Mulder's trip was fun at first, then I just wanted it to end....then CSM showed up! I vaguely remember the Lone Gunmen but I've forgotten what they look like.

There's some strong hate for the episode at AVCLub, which makes me chuckle.

One of the three was tough to recognize (Skinner, too, since the camera didn't linger on him too long).

Yeah, it did feel kinda Team America-ish... very bizarre 'social commentary' that seemed to want to be one thing, but ended up tipping the balance a bit more anti-Muslim than pro-tolerance... http://www.hitfix.com/news/outrage-watch-last-nights-x-files-is-being-accused-of-the-very-thing-it-was-attempting-to-critique

It's as if the whole thing was written while on Mulder's shrooms.

Oh my. That was pretty ridiculous. What was worse? Scully coming up with a vaccine in such a short period of time, or the UFO showing up at the end?

Did CSM really have to pull part of his face off? It seemed so silly. I think it would have been more interesting if CSM had given Mulder the vaccine while he was unconscious than the whole I-refuse-cuz-I-hate-you routine.

Was EP1 this bad?

Ugh.

Yeah, 1 was just as goofy/embarrassing-bad as this.

D-.

It's really hard to think of anything positive to say about it.
Ambrose is pretty - I always like seeing her.
I do like Davis' voice, and his deliveries of even some of the stupidest dialogue can sound fun.
Um.

Monica made a deal... So she could be protected from the virus? But what did she give him? She gave up her FBI job a decade ago and... Served CSM? Is that right?

Well, that's just fucking stupid.

Gotta hope for more, because that's SUCH a lousy 'series finale' if there isn't.

Hope the contagion story is wrapped up in a line or two of expository dialogue (the visiting UFO turned red for a second, then blue, then everybody was healthy again... Then it flew away and everything went back to normal...) and they put the 'mythology' episodes behind them for good.

But nah, I suppose they'll have to track down William to cure Mulder ("... AND SAVE THE WORLD!!!"). Fine. But 11.2 onward should go back to the things they do well.

208 episodes and two movies so far...

24/25/24/24/20/movie (1998 - 'Fight the Future')/22/22/21 (+13 of spinoff 'The Lone Gunmen')/20 (19, really, but they count the aired-as-one 2 hr finale as 2)/movie (2008 - 'I Want To Believe')/6

-

Amen to the summation of this -
http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/chris-carter-created-the-x-files-and-was-by-far-the-worst-part-of-the-revival
- except I thought the second one was better than 'mediocre at best' (but I agree it would be regarded as a 'just so-so' one if it were in the original run...).
