I have a lot of feelings about the X-Files reboot or whatever they are calling it. When the series first rolled around I was in college – a freshman to be exact – and this is how our Fridays rolled out…
- Star Trek: The Next Generation
- The X-Files
- One hour of us discussing both shows
- Off to a weekly improv show (fun fact, that’s where I met most of my good friends and my husband…but as I am fond of writing, that’s for another post)
We did this pretty religiously during our freshman year of college. I don’t remember what happened during our later years – drinking was rarely involved…well, for me anyway.
When I heard that they were rebooting the X-Files, I was very hesitant, well, I still am really. I will fully hold my squees or groans until I actually see the first episode. I am all for a continuation of the story (to a point – I’m looking at you, seasons 7, 8, and 9) but a reboot?
Very, very hesitant indeed.
Did you remember that they killed off the Lone Gunmen? I don’t, because I had stopped watching. LAF is very clear that she won’t be watching and I don’t blame her. I mean the movies were terrible.
Anyway, I will approach the series with a wary eye, thanks so much.
