|2016 X-Files angst|
Still, I don't think it is possible for Carter and his crew to do a bad job of turning out X-Files episodes. I was entertained by "season 10" and I hope there will be even more episodes in the future.

Second, there should be a graceful way to allow David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson (and even Mitch Pileggi) to keep playing their roles in the show while at the same time turning most of the screen time over to a new generation of main characters. I was amused by Agents Einstein and Miller, but why not get serious about cloning Mulder and Scully?

In season 11, we could learn that Reyes has been caring for multiple Fox clones, Dana clones, clones of other Syndicate members and their children at a secret community located in what was once Camp Croft, the place where the Spartan Virus was developed.

I wish Chris Carter would do something risky such as create a character who is the "clone" of president Kennedy. Also, I'd still like to see a science fiction backstory for all the paranormal abilities of folks like William, Molly and Kyle. I put "clone" in quotes, above, in this paragraph, because the Kennedy character could be a part-nanite and part-biological construct containing some of John Kennedy's memories of his attempted agreement with the Syndicate.

I'd still like to see some sort of role for space aliens in future episodes of The X-Files. That role need not be large and intrusive. I'd be willing to let Chris Carter play out his idea of alien technology being "handed off" to a cadre of Earthlings. With the help of Molly and Kyle, some of that alien-inspired technology should now be revealed to Fox and Dana even if the telepathic rebels stay as mysterious and shadow-cloaked as the CSM.

If Lauren Ambrose and Robbie Amell are also too busy to work full-time on The X-Files then there is no barrier to hiring new and unknown actors to do most of the episode-to-episode slogging for the show. Maybe there could be partially GCI-generated clones of Dana and Mulder.
