The X-Files – Season 11 (B- average)
Far more successful than its previous season, the show featured only two duds: its premiere – which itself was still an improvement on the Season 10 finale – and the gory penultimate episode. Its ending wasn’t entirely satisfying, but as Emily VanDerWerff and Zack Handlen put it in their companion book Monsters of the Week, it’s still the best of the four endings the show had. Most shows don’t get that many do-overs, but I’d finally be OK if there’s truly no more of this show. This journey took more than a year, but it was absolutely worth it.
