Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny

Welcome to the Q&A with TV critic (also known to some TV fans as their "TV therapist") Matt Roush, who'll address whatever you love, loathe, are confused or frustrated or thrilled by in today's vast TV landscape. One caution: This is a spoiler-free zone, so we won't be addressing upcoming storylines here unless it's already common knowledge. Please send your questions and comments to askmatt@tvinsider.com (or use the form at the end of the column) and follow me on Twitter. Look for Ask Matt columns on most Tuesdays and Fridays.

Is X-Files a Joke?

Question: There seems to be some concern over the low ratings of this season’s The X-Files. No one really should be surprised. When the series first aired, there was a sense of dread that permeated every mythology episode and most of those not directly related to the understory. The characters appeared to be in jeopardy (from their own government) and behaved accordingly. As far as I can determine, there was no smirking. Not so with this season. Both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson seem to play every scene with barely disguised smirks—as if they are saying to the audience, “Can you believe we are actually being paid big money for this?" Many of us who followed the original series see that the actors are not taking the program seriously, so why should we? And why spend time watching people simply going through the motions? — Walter

Matt Roush: It’s an interesting point, though one of the things I appreciate about the current incarnation of The X-Files is its sense of the ridiculous, that it doesn’t take even the mythology—which many feel suffocated the show (see the next question)—so seriously. This week’s meta episode from Darin Morgan, which put the show directly and whimsically in context with The Twilight Zone and even The Outer Limits, had me rolling, in a good way. It’s fair, though, to criticize the actors and writers if you feel they’re not honoring the material when it calls for them to step up and get down to classic X-Files business. Since this may well be the last time we go on this ride with Mulder and Scully—though we’ve heard that before—it would be wrong if the whole experience were looked at as a joke.

Question: I've loved The X-Files since the first episode and I know why fans have bugged out: the same reason we were bored during the original run: the CSM and conspiracy arc. The monster-of-the-week episodes were always the best ones, but creator Chris Carter was always more enamored of the CT (conspiracy theory) episodes. It's like Quentin Tarantino wanting to act. Is there no one in Hollywood who can advise the creatives? — Audrey

Matt Roush: Hee on that Tarantino jab. And this is the most consistent gripe about The X-Files that I’ve seen: that the overarching mythology, once so compelling, wore out its welcome. The bookending episodes were the worst part of last season, and resolving last year’s cliffhanger by making it a vision was a cheap stunt this time around. So I guess I tend to agree more with Audrey than Walter about why the show isn’t getting more buzz this season, even when on a week like this it deserves it.
