The X-Files season 10

The truth is out there!

Well, I grew up with Mulder and Scully, and I admit I got goosebumps when after 14 years the intro sounded on my screen again.

Plot

When Mulder is contacted by an internet host called Tad O`Malley, he is cynical about the whole affair that new alien evidence has been discovered.  However, together with Scully, who now works as a regular doctor, they go out to see what the guy has... and are witness of a special plane using alien technology and a girl claiming to have alien DNA just like Scully.
When a soldier present at Roswell comes forth, strange things start happening and the X-Files are re-opened.
This takes them along some adventures before the end game is revealed, a plot by the thought deceased Sigarette Smoking Man, wanting to unleash the Spartan virus on the world, and only Scully can save them with her altered DNA...

Opinion

This was a 6 episode revival of the classic series, and while some comments didn`t call it to highly compared to today`s shows, I enjoyed it.  I loved the `humour` story and the `horror` story that was in the series, like they where in the classic years.
The overal arc, which spanned episodes 1, 2 and 6 where captivating, it`s just a shame it has such an open end, because it was never foreseen there would be anymore then these 6 episodes ever.
Though I wasn`t to fond of the `next generation` investigators, being just to much copies of the original.  But it was a good wave-off for my part, and Scully actually looked better then ever...

This is the end.
