Yes, I gave in to the nostalgia and hoopla and watched the two episodes of The X-Files. When you think about what a let down other reboots have been, there was much to be fearful. I guess it’s a relief that the two episodes were actually good, pretty decent really. It did achieve one rare thing: it got me to watch them live on television as they aired rather than wait until they came VOD and all that good stuff.
It also made me go back and watch the original pilot episode of the show. I only started watching the show midway through the first season, and in days of yore usually if you missed it you were shit out of luck until it came up on syndication. How I never watched these early episodes yet, I don’t know.
As eerie as these stories may be, one thing I do know: Siouxsie will keep me safe.
