All About [TV]: Dissecting The X-Files Revival

Educating geeks All about TV X-files

As The X-Files launches the second week – and third episode – of its so-called “revival,” long-time fans and new viewers are faced with a difficult question: Do Mulder and Scully still have it?

“It,” of course, is that undeniable chemistry that helped carry the series from a cult following to bona fide global hit status in the mid-1990s.

To be clear, I was a total X-Files fangirl back in the day. I can’t say I started with the series from the beginning, like fellow [Geek] host Krissy. But once I dug in, I was well and completely hooked. And no friend or family member was left unscathed by my obsession.

DC shows rule the small screen, others rest on the bubble

Despite the rise of risky broadcast shows and the continued decline in live viewership, this fall hasn’t been the complete bloodbath some might have expected.

Networks have been notably slow to cancel their DOA series so far, even with the proverbial handwriting on the wall. (For some helpful context, TVByTheNumbers’ Tom Shaw provides a brief, historical lowdown on TV failures.)

Though few seasons can compare to the Cancellation Fest of 2013-2014, this year critics were no more forgiving and audiences were no more enthusiastic about the slate of new offerings than in years past.
