Also wanted to mention that the yellow/orange filter seems to appear a lot in Lethal Weapon, though maybe not as over baked. Additionally there seems to be a touch of film grain (effect? )

Yes I know about those scenes, and I agree with the potential that those were real events in the X files world. What I'm asking is, what scenes in the 2016 episodes are contradictory?

CSM's *perspective* of events, of course. Is he so omnipotent as to know all that goes on from all angles? He's not even all that trustworthy, in the first place.

Is it actually established that Roswell was the only real aliens?... Or just the only ones we know of (as far as possessing hardware)?

Never understood the retcon angle. Wasn't it already introduced in the original series, of an intentional plot by the govt to misdirect Mulder's investigations with "staged" UFO scenarios?

I agree with you there. My thoughts during the movie were wondering if they just punted and mixed in generic music for this thing. Then I remembered, isn't Giacchino supposed to be on this project?...

I pretty much agree with all of your points, except I don't think mpeg-4 can even save HD at 5 Mb/s. I'm thinking 8 Mb/s ought to be the minimum for 720p...anything less, stick a fork in it. Of...

I'm just saying they could just have well opted for 1080p @ 5 Mb/s, in lieu of 720p @ 5 Mb/s. Both will be bitstarved, and the advanced codec will just have to deal with what can be saved and what...
