is RAD. agent mulder saves the day, agent scully is sceptical but wants to believe, chris carter writes the plot, the theme tune is monumental and the truth is out there.
just watched season 4 episodes 8 and 9 and i remember i was really quite taken with the series. i loved it for its realism, haha can you imagine. a true child of the 90s. looking back at it, it has aged a little, mulders haircut alone makes the whole thing fairly implausible.

yeah its a little dated at this point to tell you the truth. its totally trip hop infused too, they did not shy away from starting sly piano riffs trip hop in the middle of a conversation, and i didnt notice anything, i was so into it when i was a kid. now its a little funny when the trip hop comes on, just off the cuff trip hop from nowhere, pertaining to nothing special other than making the ambience at once more mysterious and trendy. it was all the rage back then you see.

there used to be tons of fake porn sites dedicated to scully. just a bunch of fools superimposing her face on porn, most of it was horribly poor, but one or two made it into the wankbank. wankbank, or toss back archive, i believe is the term used, was popular back then cos you never knew when youd be able to get online again. my mate asked me to make a disc for him with porn, and not only did i put the form c virus on there, but loads of images of pras from the fugees wearing a leather flying hat with ear flaps from like 1920. fetching i thought.

they used to say there were 3 kinds of episodes, one offs, like when they go searching for the loch ness monster (and find it i may add) and thats that, then there are specials which were comedy infused weird episodes like when they say bleep instead of shit or fuck the whole episode, or the monster theyre chasing was really Cher or whatever and then theres the red thread in the series which is to battle to get the government something something ufo disclosure.

I always wanted to enjoy the X-files but our teevee only had two channels when I was growing up and to operate it you had to drop a penny through this little slot in the side and you'dget about 20 minutes worth of telly that's what they said but my brother and I always thought it actually gave you a little less time so we times it and it turns out you only got 17 minutes which I thought was a ripoff so we decided to tell the man who came once a month with the little key to get our pennies from the teevee but he never spoke much and had weird eyes so we were always kind of afraid of him so we both "forgot" to ask him every time he came.

I was raised locked up in cupboards in a number of more or less shabby apartments around town where I would sit all day and night in the light of a cod liver oil lamp drawing beautiful homes with happy families living together in harmony and everyone was happy noone ever got the belt again.
