Mundane
26 April 2019 | by asthavchandrakerSee all my reviews

I miss old X-files days when they would chase some unexplainable entity. I am tired of watching Gillian's mundane acting. She has become the third wheel. Every episode of season 9 has been disappointing. Doggett is clearly in love with Scully. He blindly trusts her and follows her like a puppy. I blame Fox for dragging a series for this long for no reason.
