Re: What are your top 10 favorite eps?

I can tell you that 3 of the 6 episodes in the revival season rank in my bottom 20 of the entire series.

None place in my top 10, or top 20, or top 30.

Re: The Event Series

And it's just so frustrating... after eight years, and plenty of time from the time FOX greenlit the series to when production started, THIS was the best CC came up with? You have the three non-CC episodes as pretty strong entries. But I rank the 3 CC episodes in the bottom 30 episodes of the ENTIRE...

The Event Series

Would love to get this forum started again, as we had some excellent posters and contributors while the revival series aired. So since several months have passed since the series' return, what are everyone's overall feelings on it? First off, I don't refer to it as Season 10. I don't consider it par...

Re: My Struggle - Favourite /Least favourite moments - SPOIL

We don't know whether it was the government or aliens behind Sveta's murder. I understand it appears the government is responsible, given that Sveta was going to be interviewed on Tad O'Malley's show, but I can't help but wonder if another force wasn't behind that craft.

Season 1

I'm revisiting the mythology episodes in light of Season 10. I know we all feel Season 10 retcons the original mythology, or at least "resets" it back to the earlier years. Keeping in mind that when the series returns, be it in the form of more episodes or in a film, what's presented in My...

Parallels to "Deep Throat"

I just re-watched Season 1, Episode 2, "Deep Throat." It really struck me, the fact there are so many parallels between "My Struggle I/II" and this very early but pivotal episode. If this is the direction the revival seems to be headed, then "Deep Throat" is really a fa...

So given the fact the revival is finished (for better or for worse, depending on whether you feel the mytharc is butchered beyond repair or not), I take solace in the fact there's several upcoming XF releases throughout this year.

Re: Revival Up-Dates

Seeing as "Founder's Mutation" makes explicit reference to the Syndicate's alien-human hybridization project, I don't see how whatever's coming up will necessarily "retcon" the mytharc. Even if CC takes the show in this direction, it doesn't negate the alien-human hybridization, ...

That is true, what you are saying.

So many wouldn't notice if large parts of the old mytharc ...
