  1. Tara Meehan says:

    Great news and yes no romance but, and perhaps most importantly, what kind of cell phones will they use? Love the ginormous phones back in the day were cray cray

  2. Kevin Shea says:

    And will Michael Cera appear in flash-backs of the smoking man when he was younger.

  3. JUS7IAN says:

    Way to oversell it.  I’ve heard Chobot talk on all sorts of podcasts over the many of years and not once has she ever implied that she liked the X-Files.  Yes, I know she’s just playing a role here, but as the viewer I wondered if I turned into a dog and she was trying to hype of the walk we’re going to go on.  I guess I don’t love her as much as everyone else seems to.  I think Chris should do some of these announcement videos that are topics that he loves.  He’s better at it and is more believable, and has different facial expressions, and. and. and. Stupid @Midnight

    Only way this news can be better is if the episodes were gonna be Sherlock sized 90 minute telefilms.

  5. TikiGawd says:

    Time to get Duchovny on the podcast!

  6. Like to know what happened to William. Definitely stand alone episodes with little slips back to the past. Love it. Can’t wait

  7. Jon York says:

    Is that sweater from the Shining? Awesome

  8. you whistled the theme song so wrong haha here you go, this should help

  9. EgoMartini says:

    the lone gunmen are dead – they where killed by a biological weapon in in the episode “Jump the Shark” – that silly episode were a high-school had a biological containment unit for just in case the lone gunmen wanted to go out as hero’s. 

    “Look but don’t touch…” ya, that ain’t going to happen. I don’t know why anyone would be into the X-files story arc being deleted – zeroed – X-Files fans fought hard for story-line arc progress that couldn’t be taken back and I for one am way past Mulder and Scully making weird soap-opera eyes at each other – it’s established that they are in a relationship – lets go forward and not regress backwards. 

  10. Asta says:

    Yes yes,  let it be 6 stand alone episodes!  They were and are best at that,  Plus,  let’s keep Mulder and Scully away from romance, make it back to LOOK, BUT DONT TOUCH.  And what about Scully’s hair?  Red or blonde, short or long?  This is really imortant! And last, but not least, what about their baby, who is … what .. 13 years old now.
