Nah. It comes down to what CC wanted, period. He wanted the characters to be work partners only. To just serve the stories he wanted to be told. Frank Spotnitz mentioned that CC didn't want the characters to grow or evolve. That says a lot. And honestly, I find that kind of thing to be boring.
Definitely. I loved it too, but that time it was a case of the actors not getting along and it showed on screen.
That said, I hate will they/won't they for ANY show. Period. I find it to be rather patronizing and annoying. XF did that until s7 originally and then tried and failed to bring it back in s10 by having Mulder and Scully broken up. There was absolutely no tension there. It was laughable to say the least. Then they tried to kiss shipper's butts in s11, but only having the characters be friends with benefits. 🙄
I'm wondering if they're doing it to try to bring in the JAG audience. That said, trying to pull old games isn't going to win them that many new viewers. Viewers don't like being manipulated.
Wow. She's that bad now? I like Hetty. It's too bad that her character's been wrecked.
That sounds like a bit of sour grapes to me.
I felt similarly when I first heard about this special, but honestly, it wasn't bad, and if you prefer the older episodes, this set of them doesn't take anything away from it.
Didn't view this as a reboot. Just a nod to a pair of classics. Nothing more.
