Reopening the X-Files

Reopening the X-Files

As many of you know the X-Files is coming back.

I really enjoyed the original series of the X-Files there was something at the time fresh and different about the series and of course the relationship between Mulder and Scully really made a difference.

The X-Files is an American science fiction horror drama television series created by Chris Carter. The program originally aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox, spanning nine seasons and 202 episodes. The series revolves around FBI special agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigating X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena.

I am currently re-watching the original as it is on Amazon Prime, but you can get the DVD boxed set for a reasonable price too.

Back in the 1990s I started developed a skirmish set of rules, entitled FEDS, the inspiration for which was the X-Files. The idea of FBI Swat teams fighting down bad guys and monsters seemed like a good idea for lots of fun games.

Looking forward to the new series, though not sure where I will be able to watch it.

The Truth is Out There

I am re-watching first season of the X-Files…

I am currently enjoyed (again) the first few episode of season one of the X-Files. I remember the first time I watched it and thought then as I do now that the X-Files was a very influential piece of television.

The first season (as with most first seasons) lacked the charm and sosphistication of later seasons, but the first few episodes have all the elements that made the X-Files the success it came to be.

I enjoyed Deep Throat (episode 2) and the pilot, whereas Squeeze still makes me squirm a little.

If you have the chance do watch it again.
