The hype is real!

I got them all on DVD and I'm currently starting on Season 7 to catch up so I'm ready for Season X

I'm excited for it but I think it will be a one season deal and then done. Not because it will fail but because it's planned that way.

I recently binge watched all of the original episodes on Netflix.

Since I'm not a believer in the alien/UFO stuff, my favorite episodes were always what they call the "stand alone" ones. Mainly because they were always different. I never liked when they returned to the mythology.

The original series was great, hopefully this new iteration will do it justice.

Loved the show as a kid, sadly I can't remember too much of the plot and I don't have time to rewatch all the 200+ episodes, but I will surely watch the new series.

X-files up to season 3 was great and then I thought it went generally downhill (some good episodes though).

Hoping this gets back to the roots a bit more and less massive alien plots/impregnations/cancer etc

Same problem here.

Feel like I need to rewatch the whole show tbh.

I watched it all about 5 years ago or so (spurred by watching the first movie, which is pretty good), I got sick of the whole nonsense plot in the last season and just skipped all plot episodes for the last half (including the ending, which I vaguely remember seeing on tv back then) and finished off the monsters of the week episodes, which were still good. Robert Patrick was well portrayed in this and him and Monica (Annabeth) were pretty cohesive together (clear they were trying to transition the show into full new actors)

This guide is great. I just binge watched only the mythology episodes.

Hmm...something here doesn't work. Google "Skippable x files"
It will list mythology, stand alone, etc. for each season.

I'm glad I did, currently watched about half of S7.

Not that I'm in a rush since i doubt the S10 will be shown on Swedish TV for some time.

I believe that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson got chemistry needed for the success and they are both better actors now, so I have great feelings about this!

It should be interesting to watch the X-files at a rate of 1 episode per week again for a change.

Same here. I have it set to record on my DVR since I'll be watching the Royal Rumble on the WWE Network until 11. I hope it works right.

Only 5 hours to wait here.

First episode was quite good! They kind of reintroduced previous storylines a bit more obviously than what was probably necessary, but I guess they had to do that since many people watching it may not have seen the original X-Files (at least, not in its entirety).

I never watched the last 5 episodes of the mythos stuff (from season 9 mid point to the end), think it's necessary to watch them in order to get whats happening at the start of this season?

Not really, it's probably just a little better for continuity.
