The X-Files, Part Deux

    I have an idea for a TV script: I'm going to scour absolutely every YouTube and underground website on the planet that focuses on conspiracy theories and then have a character recite every single one of them. That'll take care of five or ten minutes of air time.

    What intrigues me (and has well before this particular show picked up the theme) is how deeply embedded in our culture these concepts are. I'd really like to know whether this particular chicken or egg came first. So many film, and later TV series plots have revolved around alien/government conspiracies, alien origins of our species, etc., as have seriously published books. Some people make it their life work. The question I have is what was the origin of the idea. Who said it first...and why?

    Mulder is an alien. $100.

    On the serious side, that was quite a comeback for the X-Files, and I will definitely be tuning back in tonight. Probably will also end up binging the series if its still on Netflix.

    It is on Netflix. I put the final episode on last night, to refresh my memory. So, all--was it nine?--seasons are there.

    I think they did a good job of giving it a "picking up where they left off" feel despite the decade+ time gap both in real time and storyline time. Glad they were able to bring back a lot of the original characters (Skinner and the Smoking Man last night and Agent Reyes and the Lone Gunmen in upcoming episodes). The show has the same outlandish conspiracy plots as the original version, so I think this version is going to do quite well...

    Buckeneye With Rumple Minz, anything is possible.

    Reminded me of my more formative years and this new pilot picked right up where that left off.

    Bravo, Fox.

    Just finished the very 1st episode of the series, and last night's episode makes much more sense now. I feel like Smoking Man is the mastermind/highest level US actor behind the conspiracy.

    Re-watched Ep. 1, too--had not remembered that he was in it from the get-go.

    Wasn't a fan of it until the last ten mins - that hooked me in. Haven't seen last nights episode.....this show reminded me how much I like Californication tho

    Anyone follow this through? It was, i don't know...I feel like they tried too hard. They were so much better before they ever paired up...they did sexual tension well without overdoing it. Not real crazy about the new people either, but the redhead has done spunk despite not being particularly attractive...the guy is more or less beefcake for the ladies though. Too much hokey dialogue, too many one-liners.

    I need to go back and watch the first episode, before I can watch the last episode. I think they took it off on demand though. I think it has been fun so far. I also think Scully looks better today than back in the orginal series.

    That I agree with, she has aged very well.
