Last January I talked Justin into watch The X-Files (1993-2002) from the beginning of the series because he had never seen an episode of the show in his life -- Which I thought was weird because he was a big fan of Fringe (2008-2013) and various other science fiction based television shows, but he argues the fact that he was seven-years-old when X-Files started... A response that I don't agree with and just makes me think he was brought up by bad parents that didn't let him watch awesome TV (Thanks mom for letting me watch awesome TV). But I digress...
So yeah... We started watching from the beginning in January and despite the fact that the reboot of the series was announced back in March last year, we still took our sweet time working our way through the two hundred and two episodes, as well as the two movies. And once November hit we knew we needed to get our asses in gear and start burning through the series in order to watch the reboot as it aired and to not get totally spoiled by jerks on the internet (Justin is 100% not okay with spoilers. While I'm okay with spoilers 90% of the time and in terms of this particular show I'm okay with a few tidbits here and there but I don't want someone to just ruin this for me because I am loving on The X-Files right now).
At the time that I'm posting this we are on season eight, episode four and we have thirty-seven episodes left. As well as the movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008). Which I serendipitously found on the sale cart at the library the other day.
So that is why I've been boring. I've been spending all of my free time binge watching X-Files with Justin. As soon as we get our lives back from the show I will do something awesome and blog worthy. But until then, sorry for being a little boring right now.
That all being said, some of you must enjoy The X-Files and for those of you that do here is a twenty minute video on the reopening of the X-Files... It contains a few spoilery tidbits, so don't watch it if you're like Justin...
And for those of you that really can't wait, DoYouStillBelieve.com has the first five minutes of the first episode of the mini series.
Personally I'm gonna skip watching the first five minutes and wait until Sunday, January 24th enjoy the first full two hours of the series.
For those of you that have gotten down this far, will you be watching? Do you still believe?
