Seeing that in my intro post I talked about movies and that I would talk about movies, I’m going to talk about The X-Files. It is my favorite show. I will admit that I started watching it after its initial run but when I started, I just couldn’t stop. It has a little sci-fi, action, drama, and comedy. I think it still holds up despite starting over 20 years ago. It does look a little dated when you compare the technology and the clothes to what we see today but it was 20 years ago. What amazes me is that if you know a little about the show, the main actors on the show, the actors who played Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were the complete opposites of their characters when they started. Gillian Anderson believed in that stuff and David Duchovny did not. Their acting was amazing seeing that they were able to convey characters who had different views from themselves.
I was so excited when I heard that the show would be coming back this January. I was a little bummed out when I learned that it was only going to be 6 episodes but then that will probably be better because more episodes could get in the way of story progression. Also they will be shooting the show in Vancouver which was where they shot the original show during its first 5 seasons and when it was the best. To get reacquainted, I have started re-watching all 201 episodes and both movies. What would really make my day is if they released everything on Blu-Ray. I would definitely make it rain for that. I sometimes wish I were German because their reruns are remastered and in HD or American to a lesser extent since the first 13 episodes are in widescreen HD on Netflix. Oh well, one can dream. I’ll talk about my favorite episodes very soon.
