We enjoyed episode 3. It was good, goofy fun.
Not to mention (although I'm mentioning it) the 20 seconds where this man is making out with Scully. Something about Gillian Anderson... I don't consider this a spoiler by they way because until you've seen it...
I thought the first five episodes were decent; my wife wasn't quite as enthusiastic about them. But we both agreed that the final episode was a ridiculous mess. Although we may re-visit the original series, we won't be watching any more sequels.
I had forgotten to post after watching the last couple of episodes, which were terrible. Except for the tongue-in-cheek humour of episode three, it was a sloping line towards a shark jump from episode 1 to 6 for us.
It was good to see Lauren Ambrose working - haven't seen much of her after 6' Under, but she won't cause me to watch a new version of the X-Files if that's what they're going for...
Numeris has Canadian ratings which include 7-day PVR playback. The latest figures for the week of February 8 - February 14, 2016 show X-Files was a distant second behind Big Bang Theory, but not too far ahead of NCIS and Criminal Minds.
