Mulder & Scully: YES Aliens: NO!
15 November 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA USA) – See all my reviews

I was a longtime fan of the X-Files, although I never really got into it until the movie hit. What caught me, and most other people, so much was the acting relationship between Mulder (Duchovney) and Scully (Anderson). (Rumors abound that the relationship got more heated in real life behind-the-scenes).

I just wanted to comment on a statement another reviewer made about the actors. Any TRUE fan loved Duchovney and Anderson. Even the fact that she remembered the stand-in's names (Patrick and Gish) was an outragious insult to any real X-Phile's standing. The reason why FOX went back to the originals was that an outstanding majority of people tuned-out after they heard of the replacements coming back for another season (including me).

Basically, if you don't like David and Gillian, you don't like the X-Files.

However, I do agree with cutting the whole UFO/alien takeover thing. It could've been a better show with maybe a couple of abduction episodes, with Mulder's drive coming from having his own sister taken away (as described in the final episode), but it killed the show to have it be the main focus of so many, many episodes.
