Overal I'd have to give this mini series a 7.5/10 which is to say that as much as I've enjoyed it I've felt, at times, the writing and the acting has been a bit awkward. Gillian has done the best in terms of getting back into character but David really seemed to struggle to find the Mulder character for me and at times it seemed more like an homage to Mulder. The stories ranged from great, like Episode 3 to pretty boring like episode 1 or 5. Some of the dialogue was just cringe-worthy, it's like - how many old catchphrases can you shorthorn in... I still love The X-Files and I'm glad it made a comeback but I was left feeling somewhat disappointed by it all too. If they do bring it back next year for another run they really need to pull their trousers up and work a bit harder to please. For me, I loved seeing Reyes back and even though her backstory was questionable I like that they did it because it was so much better than just saying she left the FBI and went back to a normal 9-5 day job. Like you could really do that after being involved in The X-Files.
