Re: X Files Cold Cases

I went ahead and ordered the Audible after listening to the X-Cast podcast with Joe Harris. I'm looking forward to this, but I sure hope this isn't an indication of the quality. There were moments where it seemed Gillian Anderson was reading things in the most boring and unenthusiastic voice she cou...

I agree with much of what's been said here. While The X-Files is still my overall favorite franchise, CC more or less ruined the best part for me (the Mythology). Overall I enjoyed S10, but I hated the direction he took with the Mytharc (undoing and contradicting most of what had been established ov...

I should mention that I briefly spoke to Joe Harris, the writer of the S10/S11 comics, at Emerald City Comic Con last week. I told him that his S10 was better than CC's S10, and his facial expression told me that he completely agreed. All he could say was "no comment". But it was clear tha...
