What truth?
10 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

First of all, Chris Carter would never give his fans the real truth. Secondly, the show sucked the minute Annabeth Gish landed a re-occurring role. What were the casting directors thinking?!! The girl is a horrible actress and ruined the show completely. I liked Dogget's character a little bit and could have handled him without Ms. Gish. Her name rhymes with "ish" for a reason. But I am off the topic.... These episodes will no more lead you to the truth than a treasure map or a the Bible. If you want the truth, then you are searching in the wrong place here. So I need to add another line? Well, let me say again that the downfall of this show was adding Gish and getting rid of Morgan and Wong and letting the show go on and on and on. I think the show lost all of its umf after season 7. It should have ended on season 6, but then we wouldn't have one of Gillian's shows which was well written and directed by her. Now I am just rambling and this has to be one of the worst reviews ever written.
