I was a huge fan of the show until the sixth season. Season five ended with the X-Files burned and it led into the movie. And then season six started and somehow through the magic of science Mulder was able to reconstruct the x-files. I thought that was a crock.

And then the bee that had stung Scully in the movie, this crucial piece of physical evidence that could prove the conspiracy existed, disappeared. Bad enough that happened, but it was even worse that Scully must have known it was probably going to disappear based on five years worth of dealing with the conspiracy, and then even worse after that that Mulder would make a fool of himself without first making sure all his ducks were in a row. The number of literary hoops they had to jump through to basically undo the progress the movie made were amazing.

I hated the X-Files after that and gave up on it. It was spinning it's wheels at this point because rather than telling a good story with a satisfactory ending Fox wanted to keep the show on the air indefinitely.

That's exactly what I was going to say that it was frustrating to no end that Mulder and Sculy were supposed to be the heroes of the show and yet they were obviously inept at their jobs because they never managed to prove anything.

They should have had Mulder and Scully prove the alien invasion and started to show us a world very different than our own.

they could have explored how even though the general public knew the truth they might not all actually believe it.

After all scientists have proved global warming is happening and most people believe it but some don't and your average person isn't doing anything about it.

It would have revitalized the show in it's last few years the Cigarette Smoking Man was in jail and Mulder was forced to visit him from time to time for advice. And Mulder and Scully would have been promoted and be in charge of a team of agents whose purpose was to help Earth battle the aliens.
