It's the day of the premiere and there is not one fucking thread?
For fucking shame, /x/. Fuck your skinwalkers and card readings.
What's your favorite episode?
When Major Briggs gets super creepy in Beyond the Sea, I shit my pants. I'll think about this scene sometimes.
Oh dang you're right. I forgot that most forms of media have no permanence and cannot be later discovered, rewatched, and played again.
I like beyond the sea a lot. Not the best episode but it's just one of my favorites. Brad dourif was awesome in it. And it has some of the worst dialogue on tv.
>I lied on my police report, Mulder... I didn't notice any suspicious activity.
'The Host' because it gave me nightmares as a kid.
>Scully's Dad was running a secret government wormhole program the whole time!
Oh damn, that one gave me the spooks for a long time when I was a kid. I was pretty scared of murky water for awhile after seeing that episode.
can't wait for the slenderman/goatman,skinwalker episode in one of the new seasons. you just know that some hack indentured screenwriter is going to eventually reach the bottom of the plot barrel and come up with nothing but yt memes.
Favorite concept episode was "Theef". Spooky hoodoo magic man.
I'm kind of imagining perhaps not quite as expensive as one might think. he hasn't exactly set the world on fire since the first run. I know Anderson is pissed at what they've offered her for the reboot. if it's any kind of a hit this reboot, there'll be more. just think of what they were paying the Friends cast towards the end there, and happily so because it was such a hit.
And True Detective tried it's hardest to shoe-horn itself into Twin Peaks' world
Twin Peaks is amazing.
I came here to remind you that in "The Truth" the smoking man in the cave tells us all that world ends/aliens will return Dec 21, 2012... Assholes.
But anyways I'm excited. Can't wait to see new episodes.. "hope the smoking man is in this one..."
When two airforce pilots dress up like ayylmaos and abduct two highschoolers, then are subsequently abducted by another jim henson-esque clay ayylmao, and mulder and scully have to interview neckbears and weeaboo's about what happened
This board needs to be revamped, big time. There's no real direction. No solid culture. So much potential. This board could be on /b/ and /pol/ levels of influence. Just needs to be more appealing.
Probably the episode where Mulder is being stalked by a giant insect that camouflages itself as a human being. That's my favorite monster of the week episode at least.
Anyways, I wanna talk theories: Anyone have some ideas on how they're going to explain why Aliens didn't invade on December 21, 2012, and how The Cigarette Smoking Man somehow survived a missile to face?
when the tard surge hit there was a push to divide /x/ into a fun spookie board and a /tin/ board to dump the mental illness into, but moot is a faggot elemental and left the board to rot.
>This board could be on /b/ and /pol/ levels
Can't remember specifics. But the best shit was when they were shooting in Canada. Loved all the outdoor scenery shots and car driving shit, aw yea.
Then they started all the stuff in DC which is when the show got really boring visually at least.
that was a good episode!
another one that have me the creeps was the insect boss episode.
I found this synopsis:
'Anyone who has worked in a call centre can relate to Gary Lambert, a man who, trapped in the world of his tiny office cubicle, starts to lose his grip on reality andimagines that his seemingly decent boss is actually a giant monster, bug-type thing. So he does the only rational thing he can and takes the entire building (and Mulder) hostage in order to prove it.
Lambert dies but passes on his delusions to Mulder, who also begins to see the monster.It is a very scary thought, being the only person who sees something wrong but no-one will believe you. But the episode itself was very nearly ruined and, apparently, wouldn’t have been scary at all were it not for the help of computer technology.'

That was a fantastic episode.
I'm sure the invasion has actually already started, but covertly? Also I can't remember the exact reason William was necessary to the super soliders (other than being the only survivable half/half hybrid), but I do remember Jeffery Spender injecting him with magnetite and him being 'normal', which could have put a damper on plans... Somehow.
Yeah CSMs death was pretty set in stone. Unless he was a clone or something. No way he could have been a super solider himself
Home by far.. Keeping the mother in a drawer under the bed as a breeding machine is prlly the most fucked up shit ive ever seen
It's been a while since I watched the X-Files but I remember various aspects pretty clearly.
I don't remember why William was necessary to the plan. I think it might have been that the fact that he was the only surviving hybrid makes him the perfect template to use for an improved version of the super soldiers. Remember, the fact that the Aliens are susceptible to magnetite is a serious weakness, but since William was clearly immune to it that's one huge advantage, and since they can't get near him now because of his magnetite, that would set their plans back.
As for Cigarette Smoking Man, it as I said in my original comment, I'm baffled by his survival. Perhaps they're baiting us and he isn't actually alive but just a figment of someones imagination, similar to the season 9 finale where Mulder was having visions of key characters who had died in previous episodes.

Call fox complain about not caring about football and about delayed xfiles
Those were fantastic, x-files had such good bad guys. The Eugene Tooms episodes were pretty good too and I enjoyed that pyromaniac episode where the dude combusts his own ass in the end.
first one i ever saw was on halloween cause my older cousins watched it. it was the cops one. they told me it was a live episode of cops which freaked me out cause i lived in la, where the monster was running around and killing people. it took me longer to realize it was a tv show than 9 year old me wants to admit.
Just saw this after the NFC championship, did this originate from /x/? Is this the meme magic?
>Mulder in car encounters newly found /x/phile friend
>Newfag: Like you, I am a true believer
>Mulder: I only...
>want to believe
The one with the inbred deformed family, I forget the title of it. Disturbing stuff.
You know what that ends up meaning? I don't really get excited about stuff anymore.
How many additional wizards, "vampires", and schizophrenics will it take to satisfy you, newfriend? In all fairness, /tv/ exists, and their horror movie threads are at least as good as ours. If you're having fantasies of grandeur, what you see is what you get. The notoriety of a board is directly related to how active its population is in view of the public. And no board is actually cohesive or uniform, that's a silly myth.
You should always start from the beginning and watch all of a thing, in order if possible. Form your own opinions based on direct experiences. If our tastes are even slightly different from yours, the episodes we tell you to skip might very well be the ones that would be your favorites had you actually watched them.
Considering your situation, I would suggest you watch the new bit until it's finished, then start from season 1. It's not like there needs to be a rush. If you need to watch something right now, you could do Twin Peaks (which is a far shorter series).
>LUCIFER premiers tomorrow
Oh, cool. We go from the old /x/ culture of paranormal to the bastardized comic of Marvel.
>from the old /x/ to the new /x/ of shitty satan and lucifer threads
>FOX execs confirmed for stalking /x/
>mulder being surprised that the government is taking some bitch's babies like it's some sort of revelation
this shit was old hat in the original series, I like to think it's something deeper but I feel like they might be jumping the gun a little for Mulder going "but what if it wuz all a lie!!!"
what about xzibit?
>not liking fox news and it's biased conservative views
>"you better go to tumblr"
Maybe the guys an independent that appreciates both sides and individual values that they both have.
BUT NOOOO! IT'S EITHER YOU'RE TUMBLR BAD OR FOX NEWS BAD, NO MIDDLE!
Will they cover this bombshells eventually? The slush fund for their NWO plot?
Pretty sure he got his shit shot by AD Skinner later in the series, I remember the ending of the episode you're talking about
but you can't fucking stop Krycek, he's like herpes in a good way
Being real, they weren't bad honestly. Reyes was so-so but dogget's character had enought ime to grow on me. It's still time away from Mulder and scully, I'd prefer if they had a spin-off that ran with X-Files, not during it.
Anyone else follow David Wilcock? He has a theory that a lot of scenarios of attacks on America in TV shows is a way for people with knowledge to broadcast that knowledge of said theory so that if it was actually perpetrated people would know it was a false flag.
what if the illuminati are just blatantly telling us all this cuz it's actually going to happen and they warned us through dank /x/ memes.
which falls into their rule of telling us about the shit that they are doing beforehand..
it was good actually. i hope it stays good. they changed it up this time by full on showing us and mulder proof of aliens instead of continuing to tease it as much as they used to.
I was less than a year old at the time but if you ask my parents they will tell you I used to watch it with them even though I was so young. That explains why I lived with the theme song in my head for my entire life.
I wonder what will happen to this guy eventually, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm
even though I saw it via an ass stream I'm glad the X-Files is back, and that they are touching on all the modern tropes of conspiracy.
The McHale character is surprisingly less grating than I thought - he's interesting as the Icke/whatever analogue.
Seems like it'll be a fun end to the X-Files if it goes nowhere, and it could be a return to form if it picks up. I'd even be down for a new team to pick up in the footsteps of Scully/Mulder and Dogget/Reyes. The Scully/Mulder dynamic is great but I think the best part of the late game X-Files was the introduction of the new pair.
Shit could be good.
The fate of them all
Took a few screencaps of the stream link while I was watching
So all it took for Mulder to question whether or not the shit the FBI had been feeding him was a lie was the word of an internet personality and a random woman?
Are you fucking shitting me?
Millennium was ahead of its time. It was a dark, fucked up procedural about 5-10 years before that kind of show was popular.
I rewatched it a couple years ago and holy shit, that show was so brooding and depressing you almost can't breathe marathoning it. Wife dead, loses the kid, plague wipes out half the city, and ends up in a mental institution. Frank Black got the ultimate bad end.
I don't think everything on TV is evil. What if this x-files is a way to BTFO the Illuminati and be like "aight y'all niggas if you pull this shit we will know".
I understand your point that everyone who believes that will just be able to be ridiculed for taking x-files literally but the show stayed pretty true to facts.
As long as they can make it just like itused to be. Where they had a new plot every episode. Then it will do good. But if they follow some dumbass storyline then it will go to shit. Take Fringe for example. It was almost an exact copy of the x-files. It got great ratings in the beginning, then they went off and followed some shit story, causing it to be cancelled.
I liked it.
Not a huge fan of the Michael Bay explosions, and the acting was meh (just like the old X-Files!), but aside from that it was good.
I can see the conspiracies being a bit on the heavy side this episode for normies, though.
He's trying his best to look like an old Jew so they won't blow him up next. He needs to move to South Florida and complain a lot if he wants to have any hope of surviving incognito.
Alright, things are off to a shaky start.
Here's the thing: We've been here before
We had an entire season where Mulder was convinced that there weren't actually Ayy lmaos and that it was simply the work of the Government working to control things.
I recognize that everyone is concerned by the fear mongering load of shit that is essentially /pol/ that they spouted out, but I'm glad that Scully was there to explain to them how much of a crock of shit it was.
Ultimately I think that we're seeing another instance of Mulder convinced of even crazier conspiracies than Aliens. There's so much lore to go over here its insane. There are things here that Mulder shouldn't be surprised about, but then again it could be that his opinions have changed over the last decade and he's finding out details that were relevant previously and in turn he's rediscovering information, and going through the phases he did before. As in, he's assured of Aliens, then is convinced it's a global government conspiracy to make the people BELIEVE it's Aliens, and finally he'll learn the truth behind whether it's Aliens, Government, or both.
The point, which may or may not be lost in the jumble of shit I just wrote, is that right now they're attempting to rewrite the entire lore of the series and thus there are complications at hand. They've set the basis for what will happen now and it was filled with /pol/ levels of absurdity, but I'm hoping they're building it up in order to reveal something less stupid but perhaps equally insane.
I fucked didn't start capping until like halfway through the episode or I'd have shit of the alien and the UFO crash
really looking forward to tomorrow
So does Fox have his own homebrew OS or what? Do you think he records his calls and stores his data on a secured server? Do you think he scans cell towers for monitoring software?
He didn't know that at the time he believed her. The sequencing on her DNA only came back as positive for ayylmaos at the end of the episode.
When he first met her and started to question everything she was just some dumb cunt.
I agree, but they only have 6 episodes to pull people in so they'll probably need to focus on a main arc instead of doing 5 monster of the week eps.
I predict that they're going to try and fit monster of the week and main arc into the same episodes, and maybe have more story centric eps for the 5th and final ep of the season.
No, it's canon.
This miniseries is qualified as a season 10, making the final episodes canon
There are a few complications here. They have amazing lore but they're finding it difficult to find a direction in which to take it.
I think they gave it some thought with this new series and that they know where they want to take it. There were some weird /pol/ like conspiracies being introduced that downplay the role of Aliens, but I believe they've got a plan on where to take it, and they're setting up certain expectations so they can promptly destroy them with a revelation that will clarify many aspects of the series and tie it all together.
Chill bro, the episode is purely there to establish 1) the theme and story of the season
2) exposition, explaining what has happene d before for the new fans
3) the retcons required for returning actors to please the old fans
There was no way this ep was going to be that good, there was too much baggage to sort through. Ep2 will be great.
I like to think that's what will happen as well, I have high hopes but with AD Skinner and Smoking man there's no way it can be that bad
lmao. that whole conspiracy about FEMA prisons and a new age take over soon and banks closing all would have sounded pretty real to me had I not lived through the embarrassment that was the September 2015 "happening"
End of the world shit, never again.
Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast and the taste is... fleeting. So, you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.
I'm just saying people who prep for a shit hit the fan scenario will never see it. it will be a steady decline not a "army knocks down your door and everything is on fire" sort of event that /pol/ said would happen.
Completely the opposite, just like the original series, it served/serves to marginalize conspiracy theorists. It's the Stephen Colbert of this kind of shit. A parody that almost passes itself off as serious but we all know it's supposed to be satirical or in some way a misrepresentation.
Welcome to TV 2015.
>mfw there was a literal Burger King countdown / timer overlay leading into the Burger King commercial
I agree with you totally. It's a slow decline that people who aren't paying close attention will never notice. They *kind of* got close to framing it that way during that whole monologue at the end, but then they had to mention that there would be a big evil takeover at the end of it.
You don't notice the gradual changes in anything over the course of even a few years. Everytime someone points out that our freedoms are a little less, or the financial world is a little more fucked up or whatever, that'd be the great big "conspiracy" happening. A slow, staged decline.
your not a big shot writer working on the x files with a fox news sized budget and accidentally skip over things like the awkward phrase 'my struggle' directly correlates with one of the most influential books in world history.
what does it mean? idk. but if it is an accident then I am Celine Dijon.
