The first movie was not so good and the second one was even worst.



There's talks about a third and final movie to be released closer to 'the date' in 2012 that would be a continuation of the series but i think since the second one flopped, they might scrap it :scared:

Oh, yeah. The first season was a little weird in that they weren't yet comfortable in their characters, and things hadn't been fully developed yet. It definitely gets better. In fact, I think season 5 was their high point.

Definitely, i mean, after s5, they mainly focus on one storyline and the side-stories aren't that strong TBH :|

If they made it involved with the overall series plot and not a random extended episopde it might be workable, I haven't been able to watch the second movie yet, I'm too afraid. :lol:

Just noticed this thread. I was a HUGE X-Files fan. It was so disappointing when it petered out in the end -- very good example of why a set end date is a good thing!
I taped the shows on VHS back then and rewatched them during the hiatus. I discovered online spoilers with the X-Files and became a spoiler junkie! And I couldn't wait for the blooper reels to come out every season.

There were some early stand alone classics like season 3's Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose and Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space', and season 4's Paper Hearts and Small Potatoes.

But season 5 was definitely the best. Some of my fav stand alones: Post-Modern Prometheus, Folie À Deux, Kill Switch and the pre-True Blood vampire saga, Bad Blood.

I thought the first movie was pretty good, but I was still caught up in characters back then. I didn't even notice when the second movie came out. I saw it for the first time on cable after it had been out for a while. Sadly, the moment had passed for me, and the magic was gone. :(

Still, it raised the bar for sci-fi television and blazed the trail for shows like LOST and Fringe. :thumbup:

I'm currently watching season 2 and it's starting to get really good.
I only saw a few episodes back when they showed it here on TV but now I started from the beginning and I hope that I can watch all 9 seasons. :PP

But the ending was a big disappointment, as happens with many great shows. The ending just can't live up to the standards 100+ episodes have set. I just hope Lost can escape that particular curse.

I actually liked the first movie. I admit, it wasn't one you could "just go see", you had to really be into the show. That being said, I enjoyed it. The second one I saw b/c it was an X-Files film, but it certainly didn't belong on a big screen. I am still hoping for a third movie.

Owning the series is something I've done since it was released on DVD and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's still my favorite show of all time and I doubt anything will change that.

Hmm. The X-files was my LOST, but it's a million miles away now.

Spoiler (Click to reveal/hide)
Back during the second movie, there was rumor of a myth-based 2012 movie. Any news?

In regards to a potential 3rd movie, it's worth noting Chris Carter and David Duchovney have been seen together a few times in the past few weeks. Could mean nothing, but hey, worth noting.
