No joking around anymore. This is the last season…I think. Well, Gillian Anderson has said she is done, so…

A highly anticipated return to the small screen for Agents Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Scully (played by Gillian Anderson). This is a series which had fervent fans. Fans who dissected and then analyzed every nano second of the series. Standards are high, so when they announced they were coming back for 10 more episodes the pressure was on.

As this was set to be the last season, you know they had to strive to wrap things up. Somehow. Some way. Though there are a couple of those stand-alone episodes most of the season has to do with the series’ central conspiracy theory and the search for Mulder and Scully’s son William (played by Miles Robbins).

The season starts off with several strong episodes especially “Familiar” then it begins to tail off towards the end. In my mind they are ending it at the right time. It was nice to see Duchovny and Anderson together again, but the stories had a kind of tired feeling about them and the pressure to tie it all up in a nice little bow seemed too much. There was a serious struggle by series creator Chris Carter on how to bring the story of Mulder and Scully to an end.

Several characters we are familiar with are involved in the telling of the tale. The Smoking Man (played by William B. Davis), Skinner (played by Mitch Pileggi), Monica (played by Annabeth Gish), and Langly (played by Dean Haglund).
