The Truth Is Out There. I Want To Believe. Trust No One.

Ever been trapped somewhere that you can't get out of and everything is pounding, pounding and shaking and you can't get out? Yep, welcome to being stuck at home while the roofers are re-roofing your house. At the ass crack of dawn. Right over your bedroom. Seriously, they’ve been here all day and while I am glad they are pushing through before the rain comes tomorrow, holy shit, I just want some silence! Also, my sister is sick with some sort of virus and has stayed home the last few days, so I canceled my therapy appointment for today because I didn't want to make her have to drive me. She needs to focus on resting up so she can go back to work and also, tomorrow is my mom's birthday and she is really excited that we are taking her out to dinner, so my sister needs to rest up for that as well. But...we mustn’t despair, not today, not on Rex Manning Day. Because...

IT'S THE 20th ANNIVERSARY OF THE X-FILES!!!
X-Files Original Opening Credits Sequence
Here, have Time Entertainment’s list of the Best 9 X-Files episodes.


I admit that while I watched The X-Files religiously in those first few years, life circumstances had me slacking off (on TV in general) during those middle years. But now I can say that I have seen every single episode of The X-Files, in order! (Oh wait, I forgot about those other two seasons, never mind, /hand wave/, saw those when they first aired). I can see so much influence from The X-Files - really my first in-depth, feet first intro to genre TV - in everything I watch, read and write these days. But mostly, this was my first real bonding experience with my sister over media. I was too young during the 21 Jump Street and Beverly Hills, 90210 days, but then The X-Files came along. When she was off at college, my sister would call me the day after a new X-Files episode aired so we could discuss it in great detail. Before Lord of the Rings brought us together, there was The X-Files.

So, what about you guys? I know a bunch of my Flisties have their roots in The X-Files. What do you remember about first watching it, getting into the fandom, having your first feels about it?
