C'mon Mulder, there's no such thing as Newtypes.

>has at many points seen Newtypes

Why do people get nostalgic about X-Files again?

>>13830390
the first 3 seasons are actually great tv.
>>
>>13830390
The theme is really, really good.
>>
>>13830390
It was an introduction to urban fantasy and mixing of reality and science fiction for many. These are heady concepts that play by invading what the viewer at the time often considered normal. It was a good way of creating fright, and X-Files watered it down and stretched it suitably for TV needs.

Now that you mention it, did the X-Files ever dealt with Newtypes? Is there an episode where they deal with a dude that just has mild precognition and really good reflexes?

>>13830468
Is that why the Monster of the Week episodes used to be more popular than the story arc episodes at one point?
>>
>>13829632
To be fair a lot of those aliens were just fucking humans with some body mods. Even the time they thought it really was an alien abduction it was actually humans who were working for aliens
>>
>>13830390
Go watch Beyond the Sea. It's one of the best episodes and explains why Scully remains a skeptic despite all the crazy shit she's seen.
>>
>>13830604
>Is that why the Monster of the Week episodes used to be more popular than the story arc episodes at one point?
Exactly. Mulder and Skully are enjoyable characters to watch in 40 minute chunks, an interesting or wacky concept monster or mystery every week is in a lot of ways better than a murky conspiracy
>>
>>13830604
>>13831054

Speaking of Monster of the Week episodes, the most recent miniseries ep is sort of a parody on them. And it was also fucking hilarious. It was made by the same writer who did 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space' so you know what you're getting into.
>>
>>13831728
Ah, the obligatory comedy episode aired?

Excellent, funny files are some of the best episodes.
>>
>>13830390
because they either missed out on twin peaks or saw twin peaks and wanted more of denise

You could tell Duchovny was having fun with that role. I hope Denise comes back when Twin Peaks comes back. If it ever stops being delayed!

First five, really. 2, 3, and 4 being the best I think.

You should watch it sometime.

They're not that similar.

Denise was great, though.
>>
>>13831829
Given how many other members of the FBI will be back (including Lynch's own character) I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Denise.

COLE! GORDON COLE! is back
YES! I love watching David Lynch act! His awkward enthusiasm is adorable!

This. MOTW episodes>>>overarching conspiracy episodes.
My favorite is Quagmire, that one with the lake monster. Mulder and Scully's conversation when they stranded on the lake is just awesome (even if it's just another debate on Scully's skepticism)
>>
>>13831743
Yeah, X Files tends to do comedy well. I guess it's because they're not afraid to poke fun at themselves.

>>13832721
It's because with MOTW episodes they can tell a wide variety of stories from comedy to straight up horror and even just run of the mill serial killers with a really weird fetish.

Although to be fair, some of the early conspiracy mythology episodes were pretty tense, like the first few appearances of the Alien Bounty Hunter. It wasn't until around S4 when they just started getting convoluted and soap opera-like, since the writers themselves probably had no idea where the story was going.

He wrote a comic called The Incal which apparently contains a lot of his ideas for Dune.
>>
>>13832721
I like the one where Monk's actor Tony Shalhoub has a shadow made of dark matter that disintegrates anyone who steps into it.

I wonder if they got the idea of a killer shadow from Alessi from Jojo, except his just de-ages people.
>>
>>13835307
Doubt that, it just seems a natural idea to make a shadow the object of weird spoopy shit.

Uhh, sorta.

Araki says "This character can do this.", whereas fiction like X-Files says "This character can do this, here's why we think it may be able to conform to the reality that you're a part of."

It's the difference between real robot and super robot all over again. They are different storytelling methods.

This. Also, what the fuck is up with these grannychasers who are acting like she's still hot? She aged okay, but she's hardly what I'd call attractive anymore.

The one with the humanoid leech living in the sewers was cool too.

I meant more the common LOOK AT THE WEIRD SHIT. Of course the execution would differ, especially when X-Files is all about questioning everything you see, up to and including the skepticism itself.

It's one of the first shows to actually pay attention to what it was doing and to capitalize on that focus (and therefore reward careful viewership). It did this in part by taking advantage of the nature of its medium, rather than blaming it for being a less cerebral experience than, say, film. The current TV series boom (wherein American shows start to look like anime in presenting sophisticated narratives, but with even tighter writing and dialogue) would not exist without The X-Files.
>>
>>13836066
Minovsky particles, Mulder.

Fringe is technically set in the X-Files universe. So there's that.

Gee wiz thanks a bunch I guess.

anyone else sort of hate how Newtypes existing never amounted to anything in UC/CC/RC cultures?

You think the existence of psyhics would be shattering and cause some sort of conflict between newtypes and oldtypes.
>>
>>13837034
>You think the existence of psyhics would be shattering and cause some sort of conflict between newtypes and oldtypes.
Not really. For most of human history people believed in that sort of thing, and for all intents and purposes it was true. Nowadays we know espers aren't real but people still believe in oracles and mind-readers anyway. Newtypes actually existing would make the news, but people would adjust pretty quick. Personally, I think we're pretty close to pyschic powers anyway.
>>
>>13830390
It was one of the first shows to have a strong continuity. What you're talking about was due to the fact that TV at the time was meant to be seen as single episodes, so every episode needed to be self-contained.
>>
>>13837093
What's it like being so dumb
>>
>>13830390
In addition to what everybody else has been saying, it's just about the most 90's thing this side of a Nirvana album. Nostalgia is in at the moment and a widely watched, pretty good show that left a mark on its audience and is a symbol of its era is the perfect candidate.
>>
>>13837093
Depends. If there are mind reading,future seeing pick things up and throw them with your mind, mind control, teleporting psychics around then they would definitely be persecuted, hated, envied, feared and hunted down due to that fear.

Don't worry, it doesn't happen to 2D. You've got at least one safe, and even then she'd only be in her 30's at this point.

I can kind of see it. I wouldn't, but if you're already into older women then she's aged very well.

What kind of mobile suit would Mulder and / or Scully pilot, if The X-Files were set in the UC and they inevitably had to fight a Flukeman Zaku or some shit?
>>
>>13837424
The actual reason for the reboot was that by making new episodes they massively boost the show's popularity in the short term. This means they can charge Netflix more to licence it.

The new episodes are just commercials for the marketing machine.
>>
>>13837432
Moulder is the hotblooded pilot and Scully is his mechanic/navigator/engineer partner. They pilot a bog-standard government issue research Mech tasked with recovering information.

Moulder believes there is an evil conspiracy of alien lifeforms, and pushes their non-combat Mech beyond its capabilities, eventually unlocking a secret super mode to their Mech that should be impossible.

They fight aliens, ghosts, etc. and find out that the Truth is Out There.

I'd watch a horror/mecha series.
>>
>>13837468
>I'd watch a horror/mecha series.
You should try Betterman.

And I never watched the last sesons. Did Mulder find his sister? Was Scully pregnant with something or not?
>>
>>13837490
>Did Mulder find his sister?
Kind of. I'll just copy that the Wiki says. >Samantha was consumed by "spiritual intervention" beings called "Walk-ins", which try to save the innocent souls of children who are unfairly doomed to live unhappy lives or suffer terrible fates. When Cigarette Smoking Man and his team found out where Samantha was located, the Walk-Ins took pity on the girl and turned her into an energy form called starlight, which made her die a painless death, and without leaving behind a body.

>Was Scully pregnant with something or not?
She had a half-alien kid with Mulder called William. She put him up for adoption so that CSM and The Syndicate couldn't get to him.
>>
>>13837499
>Half alien
Go on.
>>
>>13837490
I was thinking of Betterman actually.
>>
>>13837468
Horror mecha is a criminally underdeveloped genre.

But we'll get to that come October...
>>
>>13837499
So spiritual crap instead of actual alien abduction? That's bullshit. If I had watched it on TV I would've been angry.

>>13837508
You should. The monsters are cool, Hinoki is love and Kenta surprisingly manly. It's also part of the GGG/Brigadoon universe.
>>
I"m not sure what to think of this episode.


>>13837526
Most people I knew that watched the show in the 90's dropped it by the reveal.

Mulder finds a sample of Scully's eggs that were removed back when she was abducted in S2. She gets artificially inseminated with them and Mulder's sperm, but the doctor was tampering with them to make an alien super-soldier hybrid.

So when she had the kid, she put it up for adoption to hide it.
