        Pilot episode last night, a little awkward in places, but shows some promise as soon as they sort out how the Cigarette Smoking Man is still around after dying in the first series.

        Basic plot - CigMan wants to murder the entire world with a super plague in order to purify it, except for the privileged few, of course. No mention of "X" in any way, shape or form.

        Duchovny acts like a fish out of water at times, but if it all settles down, it might be worthwhile.

          I haven't seen the new series yet, but I went off the old series a bit because it was often full of boring murders and gore, I preferred the non-violent deeper intelligently-scripted episodes featuring aliens and UFO's, so I hope the new shows will be like that.

            I have hope for the new series. Like Spike the original lost me towards the latter half, but hope springs eternal.
            Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                I wouldn't count on it, because the old audience that could keep up with intellectual plots has been replaced by the video game - no thoughts-at-all crowd, and they need explosions and blood to maintain any kind of focus for more that 30 seconds or so.

                  It's the Kellyanne Conway approach.

                  I still miss her.

                    Saw episode 2 last night. My hopes are waning.
