Good night, Agent Mulder. Good night, Agent Scully.
I finally finished the ninth and final season of the X-Files this weekend. For months now I've been recording every episode on TNT and trying to keep up with all the recordings. It's like being immersed in the X-Files Universe with daily doses of what I lovingly dub: The Weird Shtuff Show.
While Agents Reyes (Annabeth Gish) and Doggett (Robert Patrick) were interesting characters and were solid actors during the last two seasons, the show lost something of its heart when Mulder and Scully were not there together. For seven years (or three months in my world) they were together, bantering and solving weird shtuff and dealing with the conspiracy and the aliens and Cigarette Smoking Man and building a really solid rapport that when it was gone, the show lost something. It was still good, but whenever Mulder made his rare appearances on the show's final two seasons and interacted again with Scully, it is easy to see how much was missing.
