    Then you see the pattern. Mulder and Scully can't win. Either they are betrayed, or they do something stupid. It was all to perpetuate the series, a series that should have ended with season five.

    That's why I got off the bus with the beginning of season six.


I don't want to defend the later seasons too heavily but there were parts I liked about season 6. I personally enjoyed the Jeffrey Spindle/aliens burning abductees stuff.

That said even though Mulder was pretty absent from seasons 8 and 9 I still thought season 7 sucked even with him there.

To me the turning point for the show was the episode One Son. Even though the original syndicate had long since worn out their welcome once that plot was over the mythology episodes never really clicked after that and I tended to tune in for the mythology episodes more so than the monster of the week.
