Chris Carter weighs in on the shocking events of the season 11 finale of #thexfiles

I know I have been relatively quiet about the show during the run of this season. Truth be told, I have had some mixed feelings about certain episodes, and that finale certainly is among them.

I did not manage to resume my podcast I started 2 years ago, I just haven't been able to figure out a way to talk about the show in a medium that doesn't put everyone to sleep. But I would like to do a proper review of this season at some point, once we've had time to digest all 10 episodes. I have 8 out of the 10 on Google Play now so I'll be able to rewatch them properly and lay down some thoughts.

Is there any way you would like to read more from me about this season, or even about other seasons? YouTube is kinda done to death nowadays but that's always a possibility if I can keep videos short.

Either way it's not because the show is now over that I will stop posting about it here so stay tuned.

Chris Carter discusses the new season of #thexfiles and the series potential future without Gillian Anderson

I know it's hard to imagine future seasons of +The X-Files without Scully, after all season 8 only had Mulder in the second half of the season and season 9 only for the final episode, and these two seasons are generally considered the weakest of the lot.

Of course Gillian could always change her mind but given the press coverage her announcement to call it quits has had, it's safe to assume this is it for her for the foreseeable future. So could the show survive either with Mulder alone, or with a new team altogether?

The new team is unlikely, I'm pretty confident in saying that Miller and Einstein didn't woo the audience that way last season and their resemblance in character to Mulder and Scully are just too much to sustain enough interest, I think. So that leaves Mulder on his own, or with a new partner? And if so who? Skinner? William? Someone new altogether who will likely struggle to fill in Gillian's shoes?

Now for the controversial bit.

I've had a hard time adjusting to Gillian's performance as Scully those past two seasons. She's been feeling really quite different from how I was used to, up until I Want To Believe. I couldn't really say what it is exactly but perhaps it is time to let Scully go and move on to someone new.

Either way I'll always be glad for seasons 10 and 11 which I never dreamt we'd ever get, if we don't get anything more after this season.

Kersh is coming back for a stint on next week's episode of #thexfiles

I can't believe we're half-way through the season already and next week's episode, Kitten is the "Skinner" episode featuring Hayley Joel Osment as what appears to be an ex comrade to Skinner while he was fighting in Viet Nam (which is funny considering just how young HJO is)

Who or what is William in #thexfiles?

Who or what is William in #thexfiles?

Since the end of season 8 William has been this mystery child allegedly born from a miracle conception (something a cigarette smoking compulsive liar may have cleared up in episode 1). And we're still not sure if he's part alien or something else entirely.

In this week's episode Ghouli we'll see him and yet not quite see him, something +The X-Files​ is quite good at doing.

What were those freaking smiling men statues in last night's episode of #thexfiles?

They are a set of statues by artist Yue Minjun located in Morton Park, Vancouver called A-maze-ing Laughter.

I was scratching my head wondering whether those were computer generated but it turns out Darin Morgan found the perfect spot to illustrate the hilariousness and the sense of disbelief that comes out of the conversation between Mulder and Mr They.

It also illustrates a broad sense of mockery that permeates the episode, not just of the series itself but of the current geopolitical situation of the United States which has become so unbelievably ridiculous it has lost all sense of trustworthiness and common sense.

This was by far one of the best episodes of all 212 episodes aired to date.
