The Truth
14 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with Rom Port, I think the series would've been better served by ending around season 7. Robbert Patrick is great as Doggett but he's no Mulder. It wasn't his fault, it was just that chemistry between Duchovny and Anderson was the core of the show. I still think this show holds up season 1-6 along with this episode, but, the last 2 seasons were a textbook case on how NOT to end a TV series. Even JJ Abrams of Lost brings up the X Files "theory", basically get out when the stories are still strong. I admire Chris Carter and I'll be honest, it's my guilty pleasure to see Mulder and Scully back on the big screen. Especially now with all the conspiracies they could find.
