Bad reviews for X-Files' first episode getting you down? Never fear! Numbers 2 and 3 are supposed to be pretty good (and for the record, I didn't think the premiere was as bad as the critics made out). With that in mind, it's okay to feel excited again with this new 90-second trailer, which teases the return of William B. Davis's Smoking Man/Cigarette Smoking Man/Cancer Man and the new season's much-anticipated "monster-of-the-week" episodes. Also: David Duchovny, hot as ever.

Watch it above and below.

The X-Files premieres January 24 on FOX.
