Re: Where's All The X-Files Love?

yeah i agree there...

i pretty much gave up on the show when Mulder left... it lost it's spark... kept flicking back just to see if they'd actually do anything with the over-arc for the actual show, sadly nothing ever materialised

It holds a special place in my heart because it the first show my wife I discovered together.
Awwww.

My husband introduced me to it after we got married. I definitely wouldn't have watched it on my own, but it was fun to put on an ep at night. We stopped as we got to one of the later seasons, mostly because we got busier but then he also told me the eps weren't as good. I'm not sure if I want to go back and finish the rest.

I had seen the first movie when it first came out (having never seen the show), so we rewatched that and I enjoyed it more.
If I told you the story of our relationship, you'd think it was a badly written romance novel.

Personally, I wanted to see the return of the legless Indian butt dwarf from Season 8, but alas, it was not to be.
Perhaps he finally got in too deep and couldn't find a way out?

I find the first season to be kind of iffy; those early episodes haven't aged particularly well.
They are of their era, but you know, I actually like that. I think the first season has some really, really great eps with a good balance between the arc and the standalones, and a nice amount of experimentation around who our characters really are. I certainly prefer S1 to some of the late seasons.

On my recent rewatch of the series, the mythology didn't seem convoluted at all. I think being able to marathon the episodes helped a lot. After watching one episode per week for 9 years, a lot of the details of the mythology were forgotten, so the whole thing was confusing. Being able to watch the whole thing in a matter of months, I realized that everything (for the most part) actually made perfect sense.
I agree. Some things still look contrived or don't quite match up but overall it hangs together much better than people give it credit for. I also happen to really like season seven. It has some goofy episodes but it also has a lot of stellar ones.

Season seven isn't awful, but Duchovny looks so bored in almost every episode. Without the crazy enthusiasm he brought to earlier seasons, it just wasn't the same. But he brought that back in season eight.

Yeah, I have to be a defender of Season 1. It may be dated, but it just has really great vibes. Every episode was very atmospheric, which I think was lost a little bit when the budget was increased.

Re: Where's All The X-Files Love?

I'll always have a fondness for the show and I've been thinking of doing a re-watch lately. Word is they are working on a script for a new movie. I believe Gillian Anderson mentioned something about it in an interview recently. Whether that translates to an actual third movie though is anyone's guess.

Here's the article. It's not much to go on, but it offers a glimmer of hope.

Re: Where's All The X-Files Love?

Season 1 is dated? News to me! I just watched it over the last few months and enjoyed the heck out of it.

Okay, the giant cell phones and ancient computers "date" it, but the stories are still just fine!

Re: Where's All The X-Files Love?

There was a bit of disconnect from the alien conspiracy to the rest of the crazy stuff they encountered.

Why fight alien invasion when you know there's an afterlife/reincarnation?

Or why not use witchcraft to fight aliens?

To fight the conspiracy, assemble a team of flukeman, teenage witches, fat sucker guy, butt dwarf, vampires, gender swappers...all under Skinner, who'd be like Professor X.

Butt Dwarf: What about my idea for our name?

Skinner: I'm sorry, we can't call ourselves the X-Men.

Re: Where's All The X-Files Love?

I'd seen quite a few episodes of The X-Files in the past, but recently thought I'd make an effort to watch it all from the start. I'm up to the season 4 episode Home. It was quite unpleasant.

Unpleasant. That is certainly one way of describing that episode.

The teaser might just be the most horrific thing I've ever seen. And I've seen Alien: Resurrection. That's the only other thing I've seen though.
