    For Zark's sake, I missed it! I'll have to watch it on demand which means I can't fast forward the damned commercials.

    They'll have to bring back Dogget and Reyes and string together a bunch of shots of her like they did when David Duchovny got tired of doing the show.

    I just got Mindhunter on DVD from ebay. I binge watched all 10 eps in 2 nights. Unbelievable show! One of the reasons I like it so much is that it's all based on actual events and they discuss real cases.

    Is Delores one of the characters?

    The only thing I didn't like about Mindhunter is that Anna Torv's character, Wendy, came across as being cold and glacial. I wish they had done more to develop her character.

    I watched most of the episode and was disappointed. Mulder has lost his inquisitive charm. Scully was in a coma and her brain scan showed she was using Morse code to say "find him" meaning her & Fox's son. They can make antibodies with his blood and stop a plague released by Cancer Man.

    Mulder just looks old to me and jaded, his need to know 'whats out there' disappeared when he took on Californication. That wore him out pretty quick.

    Yes, that plot does sound a little out there. Reminds me of the Fringe ep where Walternet was able to turn on the machine that bridges the two universes by using some of Fauxlivia's son's DNA because Peter was his father. It seems to me Scully has already been in a coma at least once or twice in the past.

    I'm a huge X-Files fan but I have to admit there were times when the plots got a little ridiculous. The silliest ever IMHO was the one where Mulder found a genie bottle in an abandoned storage unit. He had 3 wishes but the genie tricked him each time.

    Most shows when they run out of storylines they bring in the Aliens but seeing this show is about Aliens they went for a Genie in a bottle.

    I'm also a big fan of the show but I'm about a season behind, so I've been avoiding everything I can about season 11 so far :( @Toroid you made me sad when you said Mulder lost his inquisitive charm, it was something that kept me watching...

    They are all getting older and seem tired and jaded as I mentioned before, same old same old for them the only thing exciting is the pay check.
