Season 9 should have never happened...
21 May 2006 | by michielhSee all my reviews

...So Mulder just left. That's the explanation for Mulder not being in in Season 9. That's all we get. Season 9 couldn't have started worse. They should have ended it after Season 8. Season 9 may had one or two episodes to check out, but believe me folks, most eps this season were TERRIBLE. Even the talented writers like Vince Gilligan failed to bring anything good this last season. I haven't been as excited as i was during the Vancouver years (S1-S5) but at least every season after S5 still contained some classic standalone eps. Now the mythology eps weren't that interesting anymore after S5, but it just gets ridiculous here. Mutant water supplies???? I mean come on!!! Supersoldiers??? The worst idea ever???!!!
