Why 'The X-Files' is in the list of the 10 worst TV shows of 2016?
According to the critics, many of the series’ did not come back as their own individualism, Hollywood Reporter reports.
Fox brought The X-Files back this winter to great excitement and for three episodes in the middle, the revival ranged from OK (‘Founder’s Mutation’ and ‘Home Again’) to really good (Darin Morgan’s ‘Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster’). But those episodes were bookended by a trio of lifeless entries stuck in a mythological rut, full of robotic performances and paced like a slug on a salt flat.
Maybe it’s a coincidence that the three lifeless episodes all came from series creator Chris Carter and the three superior episodes from other contributors in the show’s vast stable, but it sure didn’t feel like it.
