I’ve mentioned previously that I tried to get into X-Files, but I couldn’t based the surprisingly repetitive procedural formula of it. If you weren’t sure exactly what I meant, now there’s this handy comic to illustrate my point to perfection.
Maybe this changes in later seasons, but for the first 6-8 episodes I watched, this is exactly how it all went down. Something weird happens, Scully thinks its science, Mulder thinks its supernatural, Mulder is right. No proof. THE END.
Maybe I’ll try the show again someday, but right now the prospect of watching hundreds of hours of anything is frankly exhausting.
