I do enjoy the old X Files. But, Lord, you can't pay too close attention to the script. Especially when it tries to be deep. The single episode written by Gillian Anderson and directed by her is both grandiose and stupid. Aside from the series' artificial inflation in style --which I hope was consciously written tongue in cheek-- there's the lazy litter, nay, tsunami of misinformation and what appears to be outright lies regarding anything to do with the Bible or Christianity. Playfulness, or contempt?

But it's great for atmosphere and 90's nostalgia. And when it makes fun of itself --as in the vampire episode-- it's very amusing.
