Guess who's back ?
Am I the only one here enough of and oldfag to remember this show ?
Anybody else excited about he re-opening of the X-files ?
>Am I the only one here enough of and oldfag to remember this show ?
Dude what? What kind of question is that?
You do realize that (young) people find out about old things relatively frequently, right? Especially successful TV shows. Old sitcoms, not so much, but sci-fi is a safe bet.
Late twenties here - me and all my pals are watching it for the first time. It's great. Was a bit too young to enjoy it first time around - I just remember it as the show that was on after the Simpsons.
Also, very red-pilled show, could not be made today.
Scully was already a bit of a Mary-sue to begin with, but she still had vulnerabilities. If it was made today, she would be an untouchable robot, and Mulder would be a black side character who fucks her from time to time.
You know I'm right bros.
milf gillian makes me feel all tingly in my pants
I would very much like to "fuck" her if you know what I mean
In the first season, i think its the episode with the ghost that protects the secretary, we see who moulder and scully would have been if the show was made today. They meet two other agents who mirror them, a black guy and an indian woman.
So glad they made the show before all the PC bullshit became powerful
>So glad they made the show before all the PC bullshit became powerful
Totally agreed. The show really is a relic of a better time - things are so bad now, the 90's sensibilities seem like they were held 4000 years ago.
I must say, when I saw the last movie, it was a very good close to the series. It made you sad to watch it go but you kind or realized that life had to move on.
This is probably one of my favourite series of all time though. I loved watching Mulder and Scully as I grew up and there has never been anything else that quite came close to it.
I think it's gonna be great seeing the original team back in action. One of my favourite duos of all time. I'm sure they'll pull it off. They got the right stuff.
i'm just hoping it's not utter shit, and chris carter is prone to such productions of late
I consider it my favorite series and I still rewatch episodes from the early seasons from time to time, but I couldn't watch anything past s7 and never finished it
Ever noticed how moulder leads scully? He puts his hand on her back and leads her from location to location often. The jews would never allow such prominent gender assertion today.
I have noticed that! All I can think of when I see that is if it was produced in our current year, how much "the internet would be breaking" due to the show's "blatant misogyny."
What's the best X-Files episode and why is it Bad Blood?
>It's a Mulder and Scully arrive at a crime scene in a pine forest, in the early morning, in the rain, get out of their late 80s American sedan wearing trenchcoats and open their umbrella episode
literally the most comfy show in existence for the first 3 seasons
I said she "sort of" was - you know... she was a doctor, a scientist, a detective, all in one ... but at the end of the day, she is still far more vulnerable woman than any main female character on tv today.
>she was a doctor, a scientist, a detective, all in one
She went from med school to Quantico. That happens in real life and she's pretty much what you'd expect from that training.
You could try to say "Why does Mulder always know what everyone's thinking?" while forgetting he bagged a Psychology degree from Oxford.
So you're saying he has become some kind of metal man? Because that only happens in the movies, Agent Scully.
>Her name is Rey Mixer
yea nothing to see here goys
>its an army veterans episode
>its an abandoned war vessel episode
>its a Scully gets battered for disbelieving episode
>its a Scully loses all her loved ones systematically episode
>its a religious episode where Mulder's the sceptic
>its a Scully is smoking and I'm not sure if Mulder quit cus hes always eating nuts and shes never near him when she smokes episode
I see what you mean but that's not exactly uncommon if she came from a background of forensics. My favorite episode which was firmly Skully based was the one where her dad died because her vulnerability was compelling, it's so sad that modern television is so pushed by retarded feminists that female characters that go through bad things are not good. It's like the shit that happens whenever anything bad happens to a female character in GOT.
Is CSM supposed to be reappearing in flashbacks only or are they officially retconing the horrible finale?
>In the comic book adaptation of the series The X-Files Season 10—which takes place after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe—it is revealed that the Lone Gunmen are alive and well, having faked their deaths during the events of "Jump the Shark". The group was aided by the FBI and have since been working underground, aiding the US government; for instance, Langly mentions that he was responsible for the Stuxnet virus in 2010.
Apparently he survived somehow, he'll be there.
debating whether to watch it all it once or sequentially as it's released.
..still havent watched star wars and it's turning out to be a social hindrance (there wasn't any to being with hahahahahaha)
>tfw you got to meet n greet Scully in her prime and remember
how she smelled
>Deep Throat will never return
>X will never return
>Jeffrey Spender will never return
>Marita Covarrurauauruarauraias will never return
>Alvin Kersh will never return
>Know Roar will never return
>Alex Krycek will never return
So anyone else expecting they'll make a reference to 4chan at somepoint.
Mr. Robot did it after all and The Lone Gunmen are confirmed.
You can seriously watch the first 6 seasons and then stop. Once the T-1000 replaces Mulder the show goes so downhill. Well actually to be fair to Robert Patrick the show went to shit around the time they did the cringey video game episode.
I remember enjoying both movies. The second one probably wasn't great but I thought it was a good ending to the series.
As for the other seasons it was too long ago for me to remember.
I watched it when it first aired and I am currently making my way back through them - so far I am on 11 of season 2.
I stopped when it became majorly soap opera like but Mulder was still in it.
Why were season 6 onwards so bad?
Why was season 9 so bad?
Weird thing is, watching these I remember every episode vividly, including the filler ones like the vampire girl who kills herself.
I couldn't even tell you half the plot of breaking bad as a comparison.
I hope it's good but the X-Files was special because it really did reflect the 90s so very well.
People were really gullible 20 years ago, I still remember the telephone ads for Psychics like "Miss Cleo", our governments hiding the existence of aliens and all that wonderful whacky stuff. Televisions shows like A Current Affair had stories on Aliens.
Fucking terrorism and GWB pretty much brought Americans out of insane conspiracy theories and more logical ones.
6 is okay, they try to wrap up some major storylines involving Mulder's sister and the Syndicate
7 is worth seeing as its Duchovny's final season, so if you like him try to watch it (there are some memorable episodes here)
8 is terrible because the Doggett and Scully tandem doesn't work well, Mulder shows up in a few episodes but its not the same
9 has Reyes and her partnership with Doggett isn't that good as Mulder and Scully, just bad
6 is pretty fucking good. Still riding the hype (and quality) of the first movie, but the mytharc starts getting lost.
7 is less good. Agreed it's worth seeing for Mulder's departure, but there's way too many shit comedy episodes (for transparency, I really like the earlier 'funny' episodes).
8 > 7. Maybe controversial, but Doggett is great. His relationship with Scully is actually good (if you can get your nostalgia off Mulder's dick for 2 minutes). Mytharc is okay. Some bad monster eps, but also some really good dark ones that are better than anything in S07.
9 is boring. I like Reyes, and in another place/time The Doggett and Reyes show could've worked but Scully is always hovering in the background and her storyline is tedious.
>it's a Kryceck is up to his old tricks again episode
Is it a good series? I'm surprised I never saw it as a kid just from sheer osmosis like I did Friends, TNG, Frasier, Cheers, etc., seems like it'd fit right in there with the stuff my dad was watching in the late nineties/early 2000s.
Is it hit and miss, and should only watch select episodes, or are there overarching plots throughout seasons?
>Be Gillian Anderson
>be at some shitty meet and greet having to chat awkwardly with fat autists
>nothing to bad yet, just the usual shit that you'd expect from a bunch of beta faggots
>out of the corner of my eye I see him
>his hair is greasy and unkempt and it flows to his shoulders, a beard sprouting like pubes from his chin, only god knows how many cheeto crumbs are lost in that disgusting knotted mess
>he lumbers over licking his lips and drooling a glimmer in his eye as he moves towards me, the ground shaking with every step
>as he moves closer I notice the stains dotting his unwashed Jeans and 'Truth is out there' T shirt, a black trench-coat draped his sweaty frame
> I took a deep breath and instantly regretted it, his stench was so terrible I could taste him
>'I'd let you solve my case any day' he jokes feebly, I faked a laugh but was dying inside, his smell his general demeanor, it was just too mush to handle
> He leans towards me. I instinctively lean away, thinking he's going to hug me
>he stops taking a long drawn out breath through his nose, sniffing me like a horny greyhound
>He mutters to himself, something about the smells of heaven
>he is quickly ushered away by the security so I can meet other fans
> to this day I remember the horrible smell and the way he sniffed me in such an inhuman manor
>It is an encounter I'll never forget, I sometimes wonder what happened to this strange creature and how he managed to muster enough strength to pull himself out of his basement to meet me
>these things I feel should be left unanswered as the answers may just terrify me further
>>It is an encounter I'll never forget, I sometimes wonder what happened to this strange creature and how he managed to muster enough strength to pull himself out of his basement to meet me
>>these things I feel should be left unanswered as the answers may just terrify me further
mfw i read this like one of Scully's closing statements at the end of an episode
The last movie was a monster of the week, but not even really a monster and it just wasn't interesting. The only good parts were Scully and Mulder reconnecting, and even that felt stiff and forced.
Dude, it's been like 20 years, she aged and got plastic surgery. They both ages pretty bad.
>negative reviews from Vanity Fair, Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and Indiewire
>positive reviews from The Telegraph, IGN, MTV, The Daily Beast, and some Gawker subsidiary
Not a good sign that the actual film critics aren't on board.
I've been watching them on the new blu-ray release myself.
I never saw most of the monster of the week episodes before, I was only ever interested in the myth arc. I've been surprised by how good the early episodes were.
>it's a Krycek hooks up with a tranny episode
Nah, I remember, I'm looking forward to it. Rewatching Season 9 now, I can't believe how little I remember of the last two seasons.
Holy shit, I didn't even realize Pinkman was in an episode.
I'm torn between Bad Blood and Jose Chung's From Outer Space.
There really was something magical about the '90s, wasn't there? It's not just my nostalgia?
Everything was so goddamn mysterious, and we all believed the Truth was out there.
But now we're just all angry and cynical and believe the government to be less malicious, and more... incompetent.
Fuck the 21st century.
>Am I the only one here enough of and oldfag to remember this show ?
I'm surprised this stupid bait didn't derail the thread
posting best episode
>Am I the only one here enough of and oldfag to remember this show ?
Christ anon this actually gave me acute comfy nostalgia
>the argument in the car ride as they are driving towards the crime scene
Holy shit, and that woman from Hollywood Game Night.
>tfw I will never know love as strong as an alien's love for baseball
I kind of wish Darren McGavin was healthy enough to do this one last episode. The write-off explanation for another Arthur Dales was a bit awkward.
Hey guys since this is a x files thread I was hoping someone could help me out I'm not 100% sure if this was on the x files but I'm pretty sure it is anyways there was this one episode I saw and there was these guys hunting in the woods when one of the hunters finds this tree with a face on it I remember this scaring the shit out of me and even gave me nightmares I also remember these things running through the woods coming towards the hunter when he saw the tree that's all I can remember it will be great if someone can remember that episode thanks
Okay after watching every single episode starting on the first one thanks to a recomendation here on /tv/ I'm sitting at S08E08 and I don't think I'm gonna have time to watch the rest of it entirely before the next season/reboot comes out (I started on September 2013).
Which ones do I watch? What do I skip?
i watched it when mommy let me stay up past 9.00 pm. i'm 26 so i caught some tail end episodes. i never saw it enough to follow any plot, i just liked the alien detective show. there was a lot of sci fi on tv in the 90's, i remember seeing this show and "the outer limits" and thinking they were badass as fuck.
Shows like Unsolved Mysteries and the X-files took over. It was not uncommon for major news networks to have ufo or mysterious creature type of segments. I think most humans during the 90s believed in psychic shit and whatnot.
The 90s was the last decade ever for that stuff. It's too easy not to believe in magic now that we've all got cameras and the internet.
Part of the reason those earlier X-Files seasons work so well these days has a lot to do with that 90s aesthetic. Those old computers with Windows 95 and the grainy filming and the actual guts to put some of the stuff on TV is lost in today's world. I don't know, within the first five seconds of the new trailer I knew something was completely off. It was almost too... bright or something for an X-Files thing. I don't give a fuck Chris Carter: The X-Files is grainy, dark, and edgy. The new show isn't going to be any of those.
a woman(with a big black ...staff) and black man fighting against a white man with a burning cross lightsaber.
Its not like movies try to have deeper meanings and symbolism though right?
>tfw get to fourth season of X-files and think about giving up thanks to season 3 tonal bullshit
>tfw Kill Switch and Bad Blood happen back to back and the conspiracy bullshit is finally being resolved a bit
christ i miss the 90s
This is how I feel. The show is never going to hit those notes of fear and paranoia and isolation in the face of the unknown like it did back then. Real life events have eclipsed some of the shows themes. The old show actually feels kind of naive now, and could probably only have taken place when it did.
Plus they were young and attractive back then.
X-Cops is one of my favorites.
I'm working through Season 9 now. You can do it, if you have no life.
I'd say only go for the Mytharc episodes, but some of MOTW episodes were still pretty good. I just watched Lord of the Flies, really felt like classic X-Files for me.
So you're saying it's a picture of Rey's Mixer?
