So – don’t get me wrong – I’ve loved having “The X-Files” back. But now, as the final episode of the revival is set to air tonight, something in this short season has just felt … off. The tone has been a little off-kilter, even in its best episodes (which in my humble opinion were the lizard man and garbage man episodes). Maybe it’s that they’ve focused so much on Scully’s parental guilt. Granted, I tailed off watching “The X-Files” during those final pregnancy seasons. So perhaps it makes sense given how they left things. But I was looking for more of that old “X-Files” magic. The scary and the absurd and the profound. Plus there was that whole infuriating initial pay disparity thing. But hey, like I said, I’m not complaining too much. Anything that brings Gillian Anderson’s glorious face, and other attributes, back to my TV is A-OK with me. Also, I feel like I should leave offerings to the TV gods for giving us this gloriousness this season.
Oh, Special Agent Dana Scully, we’ll miss you so.
But, seriously, have I mentioned how much?
EDIT: Nevermind, I just watched the finale. What the fuck kind of ridiculous anti-vaxxer nonsense was that? Ugh, I was trying to be nice, but this "season" was just so...bad. It was bad.
