X. #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.




X = X-Phile

X-Phile (plural X-Philes)  
A fan of the television series The X-Files.

Am I? Well, that depends.

Some would say that simply being a fan of the show makes me an X-Phile. 

Some would say I can only be an X-Phile if I can explain the complex conspiracy/mythology/story arcs of the show and pinpoint every significant moment during the nine seasons, which honestly ... I can't.

 
I know I love this show. I don't need a specific label to tell me that I'm a fan. I watched. I taped (yeah, on the VCR machine, baby). I re-watched. I obsessed. I pined. I waited. I fretted. I laughed and I cried.

That's good enough for me.

Are you a fan?

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:
Chinga 
Mulder: Maybe you don't know what you're looking for. 
Scully: Like evidence of conjury or the black arts or shamanism, divination, Wicca or any kind of pagan or neo-pagan practice. Charms, cards, familiars, bloodstones, or hex signs or any of the ritual tableaux associated with the occult, Santeria, Voudoun, Macumba, or any high or low magic? 
Mulder: Scully? 
Scully: Yes? 
Mulder: Marry me. 
Scully: I was hoping for something a little more helpful.

  1. I remember the show but never took the time to watch it an become a fan. I may have missed out. There are a few shows I feel the same way about, maybe I will try to discover them one day.

    1. Absolutely!
      I'd heard so many great things about Veronica Mars I went back and watched the whole show. It was really great and you didn't have to wait for weeks and months to watch it!

  4. You're an X-Phile all right.
    Funny exchange. When I met my wife and she started talking about rock music and horror movies, I thought the same thing - marry me!

  7. I think if you like the show, you can call yourself a fan. No need to claim there are certain things a person needs to know to be a fan of something.

      Although, it is giving my son bad dreams and he's not watching it anymore.
