X is for X-files. Those of you who know me are not surprised at all that I chose one of my favorite television series to represent the letter X. My love of this series started back in the late 90’s. I was living out of the country when this series began and discovered it I think in season 4. I was able to watch all of the back seasons and catch up to the current one very quickly.
I fell in love right away with Mulder, Scully, Skinner and The Lone Gunmen. Such good memories. Sigh. I used to have X-Files parties about once or twice a year. I’d get together with about 10 or so of my friends who also liked it and we’d either watch funny episodes or mythology episodes, etc. Once I even wrote my own X-File for us to solve and had a few friends dress up like Mulder and Scully.
I really don’t think there has been a series to rival the X-Files. Some have tried like Bones by I think the only one to come close enough was Fringe.
I have a lot of “alien” stuff around my house too. We have an X-Files clock. I have the barbie dolls of Mulder and Scully. I’ve been to Roswell, NM and visited the crash site. I have a sticker on my car made by my husband. I have aliens at my desk at work. Here are some fun shots.
Some of my favorite quotes are:
- Trust No One.
- Believe The Lie.
- Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI’s most unwanted.
- I would never lie. I willfully participated in a campaign of misinformation.
- I’ve heard the truth, Mulder. Now what I want are the answers.
There are two movies that came out about the series. One was like a long episode in-between seasons and the second was more like an X-file than dealing with the alien mythology. I loved both of them. A new friend and I were recently talking about the movies. I would like them to go back to the mythology and tell us what happened to their son William. Did he end up with special abilities? Is he a successful hybrid? Still so many questions. Come on Chris Carter! Help the fans! 🙂
