The X-Files Season 9 Review

Image for The X-Files Season 9

Concluding series of the cult supernatural drama

★★★★★

Sure, by its ninth, final season the show’s mythology was exhausted, with agents Doggett and Reyes (underappreciated Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish) retracing Mulder and Scully’s steps.

But for completists there are good stand-alone episodes: Burt Reynolds as God in the bizarre Improbable, farewell to The Lone Gunmen in Jump The Shark (a self-aware irony discussed by its writer-producers), and David Duchovny’s Mulder reappearing for the last ever episode, The Truth.
