Hi nice people of the blog world!
It's been difficult for me to get my shit together and write blog posts for a bit. In fact, I haven't written anything about anything in about six months. Sad, but true.
Anyway, as many of you know, I've always been a big fan of The X-Files. I did an entire A to Z month of X-Files posts right before they brought the series back in 2016.
I love this show and the characters.
I just do.
Season 10 came along, 6 whole episodes, and they were good, but not amazing. Not the level of awesome I had come to expect from the show. But, it had been a few years and everyone was excited to get the show back on, so I tried not to be too critical.
Then Season 11 was proposed for 2018. 10 episodes of new X-Files goodness. I had the HUSBAND record them all on the DVR so I could binge watch them.
So, I watch the first episode and I almost lost my mind. The writers did something so egregious that I literally could not believe what I was seeing.
Here is that spoiler I was talking about....
They want me to believe that Cigarette-Smoking-Man is really the father of Scully and Mulder's son, William.
I was crushed. I was befuddled. How could they?
For years I've been watching Scully and Mulder struggle to find their way to each other, then be tortured by the bad guys, and even more by the REALLY bad guys, their own bosses and government.
I waited for years for Scully and Mulder to finally get together. Then, they have Baby William and the three of them couldn't have been any cuter.
What the f--K?
Like having Cigarette-Smoking-Man turn out to be Mulder's biological father wasn't enough for me to swallow. Now, he's William's biological father?
No. No. No.
Instead of Mulder's son, William is his brother?
I can't do it. I can't. It goes against everything I love about the show.
I don't even know where they intended to go with their 'plot twist'. I have yet to watch the other nine episodes. I'm not sure I can.
So, I'm going to let it go for now and pretend that Season 11, Episode 1 didn't happen. Kind of like Alien 3 and Indiana Jones 4.
Hope you guys aren't too shocked. I tried to warn you!
