THE X-FILES REBORN (formerly NOLA! NOOOOLLAAAA!)
I'll be honest, I don't really see your point here.  You just sound like an old man tilting at windmills to me.

You don't see any value in life experience regarding story telling or, more specifically, story creation?  

I mean, you can and probably will disagree, but I'm not speaking in sanskrit buddy.

I'm just making conversation, sorry to butt in on the closed session.  I should know better than to make any comment in this thread.

I wasn't trying to run you off.  You just sounded like a grumpy old guy, and I thought it was funny.

I understand your larger point, but by anecdotal evidence only, I feel like every generation says that the generation immediately after them is coddled.  Usually right around the age they start to feel old.  Also, plenty of young people have life experience (plenty of opportunity to go to war in the last twenty years, or have kids, or whatever), plenty of "old" people don't, and most people don't have anything worthwhile to say regardless of age or background.  But I'm willing to at least hear out a whippersnapper to see if they might be someone with something new, or interesting, or insightful to share.  Especially if it's a change of pace from all the shit I've already heard.

X-Files Is Dumping Most Mythology Episodes Next Season, and I'm X-Tra X-Cited

I am contractually obligated to use this on all good news X-Files posts. Same deal with the headline. (Image: Fox)

One of the big complaints about the X-Files revival was the weakness of its mythology episodes. So when The X-Files comes back again again in 2018, there will only be two mythology episodes. It’s like Chris Carter and company have to wean themselves off them.

At the recent Television Critics Association event, Fox entertainment chairman David Madden explained that eight episodes of the 10 will be the sort of standalone, monster-of-the-week-style episodes that were often the standouts of the series.

The problem, of course, isn’t actually that the standalone episodes are all good and the mythology episodes are all bad. I direct your attention to the abysmal “First Person Shooter,” where, for some reason, the Lone Gunmen are involved in a VR game that, for some reason, sucks in its players and kills them with, for obvious reasons, a hot cyber girl. Also, I direct your attention to “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man,” which is excellent and only works because of the mythology of the show. (And was written by Glen Morgan and directed by James Wong, both of whom are returning for the eleventh season. Maybe have them do another mythology episode?)

The problem is actually that while Chris Carter is the man who created the show, his writing is not the strongest The X-Files has ever seen, especially on mythology stories and especially recently. So the big question is whether Carter will let anyone else take the reins on that.

Quote:Madden also teased a bit about season 11’s storyline. “We start the season right up from where the season finale left off with that big helicopter and takes you right from there,” he says. “You’ll be launched into a very urgent adventure that has a lot to do with William — Mulder and Scully’s kid. So the search for William will be a significant thread through the show. You will see the Cigarette Smoking Man [William B. Davis]. You may see The Lone Gunmen somewhere along the line. There will be other characters from the previous mythology that will be reprised.”

... Please let someone else help write this, Chris.
