V. #AtoZChallenge - The re-opening of The X-Files.


 
My 2015 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge theme is The re-opening of The X-Files. I'm not going to reiterate the known facts about the show, but share with you how it ruled my life for 9 seasons and beyond.




V = Video Game
 




Technically three games were released.

The X-Files Game - I own this one on CD-ROM for the PC aka the personal computer!
 
The X-Files: Resist or Serve - This was for Playstation and I'm an X-Box girl.
 
The X-Files: Unrestricted Access - This was more of an interactive resource than a game so I didn't get it.

When you get bored of listening to her drivel about her favorite TV show, make sure you drop down to the bottom of the posts to see me. I'm sharing funny quotes from the show.

Episode:
Syzygy 
Mulder: Let me drive. 
Scully: I’m driving. 
Mulder: Scully, it’s not what you think. 
Scully: I didn’t see anything anyway. 
Mulder: Will you let me drive!? 
Scully: I’m driv-- why do you always have to drive? Because you’re the guy? Because you’re the big macho-man? 
Mulder: No. I was just never sure your little feet could reach the pedals.

U = Unidentified Flying Object


Besides the typewriter font X, this poster is probably the image most associated with The X-Files. Created by the show, it hangs on Mulder's office wall in seasons 1-5 until...


...a large fire destroys everything inside that room. He does get a replacement poster for his FBI office, but eventually (during the second film) hangs it in his home office.

I do have this poster. Somewhere. In my house. Just sayin'.

Episode:
Dreamland 
Scully: Mulder, it's the dim hope of finding that proof that's kept us in this car, or one very much like it for more nights than I care to remember. Driving hundreds if not thousands of miles through neighborhoods and cities and towns where people are raising families and buying homes and playing with their kids and their dogs, and... in short, living their lives. While we - we - we just keep driving. 
Mulder: What is your point? 
Scully: Don't you ever just want to stop? Get out of the damn car? Settle down and live something approaching a normal life? 
Mulder: This is a normal life.

Episode:
The Unnatural
SCULLY: Mulder, it is such a gorgeous day outside. Have you ever entertained the idea of trying to find life on this planet?
MULDER: I have seen the life on this planet, Scully and that is exactly why I am looking elsewhere. -- Did you bring enough ice cream to share with the rest of the class?
SCULLY: It's not ice cream. It's a nonfat tofutti rice dreamsicle.
MULDER: Ugh. Bet the air in my mouth tastes better than that. You sure know how to live it up, Scully.
SCULLY: Oh, you're Mr. Live-it-up. Mulder, you're really Mr. Squeeze-every-last-drop-out-of-this-sweet-life aren't you? On this precious Saturday you've got us grabbing life by the testes stealing reference books from the FBI library in order to go through New Mexico newspaper obituaries for the years 1940 to 1949 and for what joyful purpose?
MULDER: Looking for anomalies, Scully. Do you know how many so-called "flying disc" reports there were in New Mexico in the 1940s?
SCULLY: I don't care. Mulder, this is a needle in a haystack. These poor souls have been dead for 50 years. Let them rest in peace. Let sleeping dogs lie.
MULDER: No, I won't sit idly by as you hurl cliches at me. Preparation is the father of inspiration.
SCULLY: Necessity is the mother of invention.
MULDER: The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
SCULLY: Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.
MULDER: I scream, you scream, we all scream for nonfat tofutti rice dreamsicles. (MULDER grabs her arm and takes a bite of the dreamsicle.)
SCULLY: No! Mulder!

R = Read (fiction)

 
Oh, you thought I was done with the books?
Nah.
The first set I posted were non-fiction. These are the fiction books that came out by author Kevin J. Anderson.
There may be a few more that I don't have, but these came out first. And yes, they were pretty damn good.

Q = Queequeg




 Due to Scully's family obsession with Moby Dick, she names the dog she adopts Queequeg.
 Yep. The same dog that ate its owner when they croaked in their apartment.
The dog isn't seen much until the episode when it goes on a case with Scully & Mulder and gets eaten by a very large alligator.

Special Blogfest Announcement



Blood, Boobs, and Carnage Blogfest!
Hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh and Heather M. Gardner. 

Yes, Blood, Boobs, and Carnage!

Alex used that phrase last year to describe an upcoming movie release. It amused many people, including ME. (Okay, mostly me)  So, naturally we decided to make it a blogfest.

What falls into that category? Here’s a few examples – Conan the Barbarian, Breaking Bad, Fast and Furious, The Watchmen, etc.

Here’s the details, short and simple:

On May 18, 2015, post about a movie, television show, book, or all three that falls into the category of Blood, Boobs, and Carnage. (Or just Blood and Carnage or other mixture.) It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc. Post the badge and visit other participants.

P = Publications






 
So, yeah, I do own quite a few magazines pertaining to the show. The TV Guide was especially enamored with The X-Files.
Almost as much as I was.

Episode:
Detour
Mulder: Maybe it can regulate its temperature. You don't know of any animal that can? 
Scully: Ticks. I've heard they can halt their metabolism for up to 18 years, essentially going in to suspended animation until something warm-blooded comes along. 
Mulder: That's interesting. 
Scully: Why is that interesting? 
Mulder: Thirty years ago, the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, was terrorized for over a year by something. Killing livestock, terrorizing the people. Witnesses described them as primitive-looking men with red, piercing eyes. Became known as the "Moth Men." I've got an X-File dating back to 1952 on it. 
Scully: What would that be filed next to? "The Cockroach that Ate Cincinnati?" 
Mulder: No, "The Cockroach that Ate Cincinnati" is in the "C"s. Moth Men's over in the "M"s.
