D. #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.




D = David Duchovny






Yeah, I watched it for the government conspiratorial military-industrial-entertainment complex covert agenda. That's 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: Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space'
Scully: "What made you decide to write a book about an alien abduction if you're not that interested in the subject yourself?"
Chung: "Actually? It was my publisher's idea. At first I was reluctant, until I realized that I had an opportunity here to create an entirely new literary genre ... a non-fiction science fiction. Now, see, that gimmick alone will guarantee it's landing on the best-seller list. In short, to answer your question? Money."
Scully: "Ok, just as long as you're attempting to record the truth ..."
Chung: "Dear God, no! How can I possibly do that?"

  2. I thought Mulder was a bit of a cold fish, but I suppose that was the point, wasn't it? And as a Scully fanboy, your secret is safe with me. ;)

  8. I remember crushing on him when I was a teenager. He's still a good looker.

  12. Non-fiction science fiction. I like that genre. It probably would be a bestseller.

  14. Great posts so far. X-Files used to be regular Sunday night viewing. Watched all the movies too. Hadn't heard they were coming back! Something to look forward to.

  17. Yeah, I agree. Always had the hots for him. The chiseled jaw line, the dark hair and tall stature, the geeky personality, the sweet boy-next-door sounding voice. *swoons*

  18. "Jose Chung's From Outer Space" has my all-time favorite line, when Jose is interviewing Blaine and asks "Aren't you nervous telling me all this? Receiving all those death threats?" Blaine responds, "Hey, I didn't spend all those years playing Dungeons and Dragons and not learn a little something about courage!" SAID EVERY GAMER EVER is what we say in my clan when we watch this. :D
