I was three years when the first episodes of this serie were aired and if you think I would sat in front the TV to hear a man ramble about aliens and government conspiracy, you are incredible wrong! I was a kid for god´s sake! the closest I was to aliens was watching Sesame street.
So going back to my history, I was six years when a friend of my mother told her that she had a similar look to a actress in one of the series she watched; and now you’re right, she was referring to Scully. So my mom out of curiosity started to watch the show, and she discovered a very handsome man that made her stick to it for years to come. So during my many tantrums in which I used to go and bother my mom I watched glimpses of what it seem a very interesting and strange grown up tv show. I didn’t pay much attention to it and I didn’t have any idea of the big part it would be in some point fo my life.
As it happens with all human been, I grew old, I was about nine and my mom still was a fervent follower of Mulder and Scully journey. And if you are thinking, well… nine is not much bigger than six, I’m sure you weren’t interested on the show yet. You are wrong once again. By the age of nine my entire life was left up side down (there is a story behind that I may share with you in some other time, if interested say it on the comments). All you need to know is that now I was older, wiser and weirder than ever before.
And of course, I had joined to this cult in the search of the truth, I was a fan of The X-Files.
I followed the story through all those years right to the very end. Completely obsessed with not only the serie but with aliens and conspiracy theories as well. I use to look into the skies looking for something more, something that close minded people would miss and like every good fan I had a replica of the well known “I want to believe” poster on the back of my door.
I was about 12 when the end of the show came, it was sad and left a void inside me that i thought I was never gonna be able to fill.
In time I grew up, I left that phase of my life behind, but I still like to remember it with love. After all, it helped me to get over many hardships on my life and gave the break of reality I needed back then.
I still watch the episodes once in a while, I have my favorites of course (if you want to know which one you may ask ;D )
And now a reboot will air, I can not express how excited I was when I heard it. It didnt take me a second to go tell my mom, she though happy was lacking somehow in enthusiasm. Maybe because for her was just some other TV show, a good one, but nothing more. Certainly wasn’t the thing that helped her go thru every day for years.
I write this with no particular reason but to express my anticipation on the new episodes and to just leave it out there on space, maybe as a thank you to writers, actors and directors of this show, loved for so many.
Here I leave the New Trailer The X-Files, for the six-episode event series that will debut on Jan. 24, 2016.
I say goodbye for now, see you on the next post, trust no one.
