NIck Redfern on The X-Files



  • I'm a fan of the X-files from its very conception back in the mid 1990s. I got my then young son hooked on it. He has every episode collected on DVDs. He's kept me abreast on all of the gossip and rumors of a new episode...and now its come to being.

    Nick's write up is fair representation of the initial new episodes. I'm pleased with the updated themes and a new twist with the conspiracy meme...its timely, to say the least.

    Some may be surprised that I like the show, but one has to be able to suspend disbelief and enjoy ones fantasy...life would be pretty boring if you were so rigid to dogma.

  • I don't know if anyone else noticed, but in the intro of the first episode, Mulder mentions the Kenneth Arnold sighting and Roswell as taking place in 1947, which is correct, but then he mentions the Washington D. C. UFO sightings "of 1957", which is wrong.

    All of us who have spent time on ufology know that the famous Washington D. C. sightings took place in July, 1952. A lapsus from the producers, I guess.

    Anyway, I loved the X-Files then and I'm loving them know. My thing with the X-Files go beyond UFOs, which many times they don't represent in a serious way. What I like is the characters, the interactions between them, the incredible sense of humor of the series and the peculiar way in which it portrays the human nature.

  • Instead of anxiously awaiting every week with bated breath for the new limited-run X-Files to play out, I'm ignoring them altogether until I finish binge watching the originals. I never watched this series 'back in the day'. And when I finish them up, I'll binge the new ones as well. And I'll consider myself lucky for having saved that much of my life from watching damned commercials. A minute saved from NOT watching commercials is not unlike a minute earned. =P And from the looks of it, it looks like about 15.5 minutes saved per episode by my rough estimate...

    So far, it seems like Fringe (which I stopped watching after about the 1st season) copied the X-Files to some rather large degree.
