      I will say that a TON was revealed last night and in ep 1.

      All of that stuff is now revealed and there's no going back from that part of the storyline.


      I'm not interested in an Einstein/Miller spinoff (although I kinda liked them and how they were used in this mini-series), but I'll watch more if they bring back Mulder and Scully.
      I thought MAYBE, FINALLY, they would get some closure, but nope. And I heard this morning that negotiations with Duchovny/Anderson haven't even started. So, don't think much will happen.

      As far as Better Call Saul...it was a big hint before, and now it's a for-sure: brother's shadow/watching eye. "You think I'm a hack-lawyer now? Oh, just you wait..." sorta thing. And the cracks in Jimmy's romantic relationship have been cemented.

      One flaw I can see now, and it's obvious...wouldn't SOMEone recognize "Saul" as Jimmy and start asking questions? They could explain that, I suppose, in future eps, but it is a question that should be answered...

        Has Marcia Clark taken an overly dramatic puff from a cig while announcing OJ will be "taken to trial"? Has Johnnie Cochran shout-hissed "CHOOSE A SIDE!!!!"? Because those previews were so camptastic, that Joan Collins would be proud.

        I don't shell out for cable like the idiot masses, so I have to ask.

                The ending was spectacular. The setup for the ending was spectacular. You couldn't of asked for anything better.

                    The acting is really good in it, actually(except for Travolta). I would have thought Oscar Isaacs was a no-brainer for best miniseries actor, but Courtney B. Vance is going to give him a serious run for his money.

                        *sigh* you are correct. I should have known better. BUT I WANTED TO BELIEVE!!!!!

                        To echo Gurt: Jimmy is just like Walter. He found something he's good at, and just can't resist. It makes HIM happy....just needed that nudge/reason/whatever rationalization.

                          I'm with Kepler, not impressed with the X-Files finale. It just seemed rushed, and tedious at the same time. I kept dozing off.
                          What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                            The acting in the last episode was amazing. The guy playing Ron Goldman's dad was so perfectly believable I had to go back and watch his scene three times. It is possible to play an emotionally charged breakdown just right, without hamming it up. It was also a terrific set up to Clark then being so frustrated by the DA's decision to drop the death penalty. That was the first moment in the show when I could be inside her head.

                            Also, I can't believe I'm saying this, but Travolta's acting in that episode was excellent. The superficiality and breeziness of the prior episodes was an ideal platform for what happens when his ego is threatened. The "awkward elevator ride" was one of the best scenes in the show so far, which, I gotta tell you, has been just a shade short of brilliant. I assumed this was going to be a hate watch, but no, it's got its hooks in me and I swear the protrayal of these characters has more depth than the actual people, who on the whole struck me at the time as being vacuous ambition machines.
