By now I’m sure you’re all aware that Fox will be bringing The X-Files back for a limited, 6-episode mini-series in January 2016. Here’s the new trailer they dropped to tease us all:
First of all, Cigarette Smoking Man is alive?! What? I guess there’s dead then there’s TV dead, and he was only TV dead.
Second, man, they all look old. Except for Skinner. Must be the beard.
I’m intrigued by the show and I’m interested in how they will pick up from where the original ended. I guess it’s a good thing my middle son is powering his way through the entire series in anticipation of the revival.
But, will they put an end once and for all to the alien invasion? Will the aliens want our water to drink and rats to eat? Will Chris Carter have a comprehensible mythology plot? Who knows! But I do know that I will be watching with my son to find the “truth”.
