To the Thailand guys comment above
22 July 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

You're probably right. In fact, Duchovny probably didn't decide until last minute that he wanted out from this season and they HAD TO find someone to replace him in a way that all their work wouldn't go to waste and the way of doing that is bringing in Dogget and making him Scully and Scully Mulder. Regardless, I have liked a few Carter episodes but i understand you here. My favorite writer for the X-Files by the way, is Vince Gilligan. Than Frank Spotnitz. They always stood out the most to me but i also have many complaints with the X-Files... For one thing, they never seem to remember relevant memories, like in Hollywood A.D., Scully sais "Mulder, you do know that there aren't such thing as dead people, right?" Yet in that very same season just a few episodes earlier 'Millennium', she was ATTACKED by dead people. Just doesn't make sense when they do that and the writers should have worked together better to make sure their stories all fit. Back to season 8, I like Doggett so far, i started the entire show from season 1 and have gotten to season 8, currently just finished Badlaa and thought it sucked. 1 example, how did the bully Trevor know the janitor killed the other kids dad? Doesn't explain A lot. But the season itself isn't bad, i thought i was going to hate Doggett but he isn't bad, i just miss Mulder. I need to really investigate why this happened, why he is blank in pretty much the whole season and maybe next season for all i know.
