Excellent Re-opening
20 February 2016 | by singlepinoySee all my reviews

I am really excited with the re-opening of the X-Files and there are still lot of topics to be discussed and I am glad to see some familiar faces and also the popular monsters and comedic episodes. With the upcoming closing of Supernatural on it's last season.... sci-fi fans into the supernatural will definitely be looking for a new show to fill the void and what a great idea to bring back X-files to tackle more supernatural ideas combined with conspiracy theories and aliens. Scully and Mulder are definitely more seasoned and they have more experience to show for it and it is also good to see new talented actors and character brought into the re-opened x-files. I will definitely be looking forward to more episodes and I rate this 10 out of 10 and kudos to people on fox on bringing this back in line with the 21st century... The truth is still out there.
