Return of the X-Files: the truth is … unclear: “So a new X-Files could perhaps happen. Perhaps the real question is: should it? What would it even be about? Since the show’s original 1990s run, reality has caught up with the paranoiac outlook of Mulder: we’re desensitised to amoral governments acting against the interests of their people, been exposed to unsettling conspiracies that go to the heart of the establishment, and have felt the effects of shadowy cabals of financiers and terrorists operating across international borders with impunity. We live in an X-Files world now, and it’s actually rather depressing. Discovering that aliens have been at least partly responsible for how we’ve messed up as a species might actually come as a relief.”
