I didn't watch last night because we tried to watch the first hour of the Grammys. I'll catch it in the next day or so.

I still haven't watched the last two episodes, but will back to back them once I land at my house for more than an hour.

So now will it be another 20 years of rumor an innuendo before the next disappointing six part series?

‘The X-Files’: New Installment Coming Together At Fox

At Fox’s upfront press call, Fox TV Group chairmans Dana Walden and Gary Newman sounded very optimistic when asked about plans for another installment of The X-Files event series.

“We have had conversations with (creator) Chris Carter and (stars) David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson,” Walden said. “I believe everyone is on board to do another installment of the show.”

Noting that all key auspices are scattered around the world working in different locations, she said that “hopefully this season we will be able to get it done and that the same time next year (May), we will have something to announce.”

Newman later elaborated a bit, saying that the discussions with Carter, Duchovny and Anderson have included talks about “what kind of episodic order makes sense. Some of that is driven by schedules,” he said. “Conversations are ongoing. I can tell you that all of them would like to do more of these, and certainly the network and studio want to do more,” noting that the next installment is tentatively eyed for the 2017-18 season.

With strong VOD performance — The X-Files was the second-most-watched Fox program on VOD last season behind Empire — the event series, from 20th TV, was one of Fox’s top programs last season.

So this is back. The season has sort of been a return to roots...but that just makes it seem more awkward.

However, the most recent episode -- in which Mulder and Scully are the only characters, have only a couple lines of dialogue, and are hunted by an insane computer that's just trying to make a minor social commentary point -- was one of the most brilliant hours of TV I have ever seen.

It's a standalone episode, with no connection at all to anything. In fact, it almost felt like it was a dream, or some sort of alternate reality. It's so completely disconnected from the X-Files that it could have been an episode of any show.

At the same time, the pacing is amazing. Everything quietly amps up to chaos, and it does this with an effortless, graceful, organic quality.

It's a do-not-miss 45 minutes.

Nah. Still just her mom.
