I tried watching the original series all the way through years ago and enjoyed it up until the end of the 4th season and maybe part of the 5th. So I stopped somewhere in the 5th season, I think. I just thought it got too confusing and difficult to follow, like they really didn't know where they were going with it. So I'm really surprised it lasted another 4 seasons after that! But anyway, yeah I am interested in seeing a new series especially since it won't be stretched out to 20-something episodes per season. That is ridiculous and really brings down the quality.
2 more episodes until I start Season 2, and other than the weird episode where Mulder stalks that insect killer Eugene Tooms I've absolutely loved the show.
I'll probably watch the newer episodes after they've all aired as well.

I tried the same thing, but I was able to stick it out until the end of season 7. I was surprised they would keep the show around once Mulder left. I don't have a problem with Robert Patrick as an actor, but I did not like Agent Doggett.

A friend of mine ranted on FB about how poor the newest episode was. He then got a tirade from me about just how wrong he was. Thought it was a great episode, Darin Morgan never fails in these comedy episodes. Anybody else pick up on the fact that the reptile guy was dressed like Carl Kolchak when he was in human form?

I'll have to give this go again this weekend. Loved the original and started watching it again not too long ago. The first episode of this season didn't really pull me in with the way it handled the interview scene with Mulder, Scully, and the abductee, or the discussion with Mr. Talk Soup in the limo before it.
Luckily I can catch up on episodes, so I'll check out the rest of the season.
So I finally got around to watching the first episode of season 10 the other day and was surprised it was actually a pretty good episode, but did they really negate the entire first 9 years of the show? Heh, damn..
