Spolier Alert

Who was/is a fan of The X-Files? That’s what I thought. I seem to be the only one. Even Justin was leery of the show when he moved in with me 8 years ago. But I held my ground and watched it weekly. So did Justin by default and guess what…he started to like it.

Consider yourself warned if you haven’t seen the new movie and want to. I’ve got some things to say.

We saw The X-Files this weekend. I liked it for many reasons. Mulder and Scully are still hot. It was creepy. No, there weren’t any aliens but remember, half of the series was about faith, religion, medical experiments, and generally weirdos doing weird things to each other (Think “Home” or “Blood” or “Aubrey“).

Once you realize that, then it’s just one really long episode; much like their season finale cliffhangers. But this time you didn’t have to wait 4 months for the conclusion. The best part, Amanda Peet dies. She wasn’t really adding anything to the movie and neither was her sidekick, Exhibit-however he spells his name. Skinner would have been fine in that role. And for every fan who wanted Mulder and Scully to hook up….well, I won’t spoil that for you.

It wasn’t a summer blockbuster but I still enjoyed it as one last X-Files episode. Now I want to watch them all again from the beginning. Thinking back, the episodes were detail oriented but you never got the answers. Just more questions, leaving you unable to wait for the next episode because you just.had.to.know.now! Now who can tell me what current show that sounds like?
