Was anyone else as supremely disappointed in the finale as I was? I know a lot of people stopped watching it altogether in the last couple years, but I hung in there, hoping to see an upturn. I feel pretty cheated after this great big finale that was supposed to clear everything up.
First of all, the entire show was just REALLY boring excuse to re-iterate the main plots from over the years. That would be ok, because after a few thousand twists,most people stopped trying to understand the plots about 4 years ago. But what ticked me off is how they ignored the dozens of smaller twists that happened over the years. Instead of trying to make sense of the contradictory occurences that he kept throwing out to keep us "on the edge of our seat" Chris Carter simply ignored them in the finale, concentrating only on one version of events.
Secondly, after the terribly boring first 1 1/2 hours, we get to see a big, explosive ending which basically consisted of two helicopter gunships blowing up the side of a mountain for no apparent reason, and then leaving.... Um... Can anyone tell me why the helicopters came there if they just let Mulder and Scully drive slowly away in their SUV?
I know they wanted to leave the show open-ended because they expect to have several movies after this, but if they can't give us any sort of coherent or entertaining story with 2 hours of TV time, how do they expect to do it with a movie?
