Tonight: “The X-Files” on Fox (1/3/2018)

Fans of “The X-Files” franchise will be happy to know that the show returns with its series premiere this evening on Fox. Take a look at the poster, light premise and casting. I’ll be back at the close for sure.

The Premise: The season’s storyline will pick up directly after last season’s finale and the search for Mulder and Scully’s son William will be a main story arc for the season.

The Cast:
David Duchovny as Fox Mulder
Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully
Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner
William B. Davis as Cigarette Smoking Man
Annabeth Gish as Monica Reyes
Lauren Ambrose as Agent Liz Einstein
Robbie Amell as Agent Kyd Miller
Veronica Cartwright as Cassandra Spender
Chris Owens as Jeffrey Spender
Dean Haglund as Langly, one of The Lone Gunmen
Barbara Hershey as Erika Price
Haley Joel Osment

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I am not going to lie and say that I liked the previous season or mini-series (which is honestly a better title since it was only six episodes long). I’m willing to program the DVR and give it a chance but I don’t have the highest of hopes and think that the series best moments are behind them. They need to really up the game if they want to contend with all of the Science Fiction, Horror and Super-hero shows that fill our channels in today’s entertainment world. Back in the day they were the rulers of the roost and fans are expecting a whole lot more when it comes down to it today. Let’s see what happens. As I mentioned already I will be setting the DVR but not giving it too long a chance if I don’t enjoy it right out of the gate. What about you? Let me know in the comments below.
