Take a Peek Into Our “X-Files”
The truth is out there; click on the links to find it.Do You Believe?
The most recent short return of the X-Files left us wanting for more. How about you?
Did the flying saucers we all knew were there, if just out of sight, come in the nick of time to save us all?
Or did they just set up the next mini series of the X-files revisited again?
The answer my friends is blowing in the wind???
Sorry, got carried away.
It is hard not to take the X-Files seriously when the Real CIA does...
The CIA declassified hundreds of documents in 1978 detailing the Agency’s investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). The documents date primarily from the late 1940s and 1950s.
Yep! The CIA takes the X-files seriously enough to at least pretend it is sharing the real juicy "Truth" of things. and yet, how can we know if they are sharing everything? What are they not telling us?
Well if you want the low down on the X-files themselves there are resources out there. Such as Christopher Irish’s review of The X-Files FAQ by John Kenneth Muir. Published by Applause books. (2015)
This book was a very informative and useful resource for seasons 1-9 of The X-Files, as well as both movies. It had a lot of information regarding the background of the series as well, which was very interesting to read. The book itself begins with the actors and background talent that brought Chris Carter’s vision to life. It covers seasons 1-9 by Muir selecting a few episodes and giving an overview.
So what about the current 6 episodes that ended last night? If you ask me they just whetted the appetite for more. As Scully was the heroine at the end, it seems appropriate that Rolling Stone asked actress Gillian Anderson what her take was on whether or not this was the end of the X-Files.
So, is this the end?
[Singing, à la Jim Morrison] "This is the end." [Sighs] Oh, I don't know. I think we ended it in a way that it could go one way or the other. It all depends. I mean, it's a nice idea that we could carry on. But I live in London. I've got three kids. I have other commitments to other shows. David is doing a TV show for NBC [Aquarius]. There's a lot of things that aren't conducive to a long-running or even one more year of a running, multiple-episode TV show in the mix. So there would have to be some pretty extraordinary circumstances.
But maybe. Maybe the success that we've had thus far with the six episodes is enough for extraordinary circumstances to present themselves. You never know.
Whatever your take on the X-Files and their future, the show has brought millions of us a storied history of fun and fantasy. And that is what television entertainment is all about.
