Where an old X-phile reminisces on the show and bits and pieces of its continuity…

 

I have been a fan of the X-Files since it debuted in my freshman year of college in September 1993. I followed the show closely to its end in May 2002 and have some very dear memories of gathering with a group of friends at a local restaurant weekly to watch it during the height of its popularity in the fifth and sixth seasons. Since it was arguably one of the first truly net-interactive programs on television (a lot has been said of how comments and reactions in the early days of the internet guided aspects of the show—common now but rather revolutionary then), I have always had at least a little area of my website dedicated to the X-Files. The return of the show in 2016-18 spurred me to revisit my old ’90s webpage’ and revamp it a bit. Here you’ll find some musings on the arc of the show, important characters, and some personal reflections on why I enjoy it so much. (Obviously, spoilers abound!).
