U. #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.




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'.

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:
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.

  7. In 1893 (or there abouts) ther were reported sightings of lights in the sky in newspapers.

    Why they want to visit earth is beyond me. Unless they are studying us for whatever reason.

    Always did like the poster.

    1. Personally, I don't buy the whole alien thing. But, lots of others do.

  8. Sorry to say I have never seen an episode of X Files but I know how famous it is and read about it coming back! I like alien stories, though. I think they're real. It's hard to believe that we are all alone in this gigantic universe, you know?

    1. They had more than aliens, which is what sustained the show.
      Lots of monsters of the week, too!
