Ok I’ll be upfront with you – I loved The X Files growing up. LOVED it. Couldn’t get enough of it. Ate that sh*t up.
And that was back in the day when we didn’t even understand what the term spoiler meant. *sigh*
Loved it. It was gross, it was funny, it was unexpected, it was good television.
tl; dr The X Files was my jam.
Now we all know by now that all these TV reboots (or whatever they are called) rarely if ever work. I mean do you remember Dynasty reboot? Do you? I do. It was sh*t.
OH YES I WENT THERE. I managed to include the X Files and Dynasty in the same blog post *cackling like a demented banshee*
So when I sat down to watch the first episode despite my apprehension I can’t lie – I got a bit of a thrill when I saw the opening credits (again I’m easily amused).
ANYWAY – for the love of everything holy can someone explain to me what this X Files reboot/miniseries/whatever is suppose to be about?
Because I don’t understand. Anything I’ve read was – oh just you wait for episode 3. And I did. And I still don’t understand. Is it supposed to be a parody? And then you have some sad bits and strange bits and bits about the baby and then no one mentions the baby again. Is it an inside joke? I DON’T UNDERSTAND.
As it stands now in my book the first and the last episode were the best. There was some actual talk about the aliens. Something actually happened. The rest of the stuff? Not so much (even though I will admit I did laugh at Mulder tripping his balls off).
So I’m kind of disappointed and a bit sad and I still don’t understand.
Please tell me I’m not the only one.
