— The official The X-Files Twitter handle began encouraging fans to re-watch all 201 episodes of the series yesterday, as it began the 201 days countdown to the new miniseries. In Canada, all previous seasons are streaming on Netflix. 201 episodes is a lot, especially with all the new TV this summer, so I’ll probably start off with the 10 episodes that Chris Carter says are essential.
Here’s the first footage from the big return on January 24th. Here’s Mulder and Scully doing what they do best: Busting into a room with a gun in one hand and a flashlight in the other.
