With so many promises to fulfil and questions left unanswered, the ninth and final series of The X-Files was inevitably going to short-change some of its audience,
Mulder is missing, Scully is in and out with various baby concerns, Reyes frequently seems like she’s only along for the ride and Doggett seems so right in the role that some fans wondered if he should have appeared sooner,
Other cult cameos flitted across the screen in an attempt to keep viewers transfixed,
Lucy Lawless, Cary Elwes and Robert Patrick’s real-life wife were interesting diversions, but when Burt Reynolds appeared to be none other than God himself, it was apparent that nothing at all was sacred in this last year,

Standalone episodes (for example, on Satanic possession and a Brady Bunch psycho) proved to be amongst the least interesting of the show’s efforts,
No doubt because everyone was focussing on the all-important arc story episodes,
Was there more than one alien faction? Were they all in collusion? Who had control of the black oil virus? Who had been in charge of the abductions? More importantly, would Mulder and Scully finally get in bed together? Scattered through the 19 episodes (the fewest of any season), were answers to some of these points,
Then as much as possible that remained was packed into the two-hour finale,
After 200 episodes, it’s just possible that The X-Files overstayed its welcome; nonetheless it will always be remembered for being the most influential TV product of the 1990s,
And since this is science-fiction, don’t assume it’s completely dead either,
