Celebrating 20 Years of The X-Files (Part 3): The XF3 Wish List

So first off, I hoped you enjoyed my nostalgic look at my first geek love for part one and my take on TV’s most iconic villain in part two.  Now let’s step it up a gear…

The X-Files no doubt will always be one of the greatest sci-fi shows ever made.  With ground breaking stories and complex characters, the show continues to inspire and initiate debate and it’s us (the fans) who have kept this show alive by enthusiastically talking about it.

I hinted in part one that there was some unfinished business.  While some may argue that the series had run its course and got lost within its own mythology, the end of Season 9 left some interesting and unresolved premises. William, the 2012 alien colonisation deadline, the Super Soldiers and the fate of the syndicate are some of those premises in which I will be addressing in this entry.

But let’s get hypothetical for a second.  If a third (and likely last) X-Files film were announced today, what would you think would be ideal for the film?

  1. X-files was my first geek love too. I still watch the show to this day. Every week I looked forward to turning out all the lights and watching my fave show. I still do that. Thank goodness it is on Netflix.
    I recently discovered the comic books and have been enjoying them immensely! How did I not know these existed?! Happy day.

    1. Thanks for the comment Jennifer 🙂

      The X-Files will always continue to be a fantastic show. In many ways I still miss it. But it’s great to see how people are discovering it and becoming fans themselves and that’s the real legacy of the show. The new comics are amazing and I’m glad you’ve discovered it. Can’t wait for issue #5. Just need the the entire series on blu-ray – it would be great to see this show get the high definition treatment.

      1. Yeah. It was easier back in the day to watch The X-Files – no twitter, no facebook, no smartphones, no on-demand/catch-up services. Just a dial up internet connection that took 5 mins to load a page and a VHS player just to record an episode of the show. Because once it aired, you never saw it again. Harder to spoil anything back then! Now…spoilers are everywhere because the whole world assumes you’ve seen it. Any new episode of any show that I haven’t seen, I’m off twitter for 24hrs.

      2. Exactly. Plus it’s better to discover something by watching it yourself. If you constantly relied on someone’s opinion, you yourself never get to judge it. Everyone’s TV experience is different.

        When are you going to start watching XF S2? For me that’s when my love affair with the show started to grow on me. Had it’s fair share of creepy, scary stuff that gave me nightmares as a kid 😐

    1. Glad to hear it. Season 2 has some brilliant gems. One of my favourite episode from that season was Duane Barry. It’s a good thing Gillian Anderson became pregnant during the early seasons because the mythology went to a game changing level.

      1. Wow! You’re really binge-watching your way through this series lol. S2 = the season that made me a believer. I think my favourite seasons are S4 and S5 and you’ll see why when you eventually reach there.

        Heads up, don’t forget the two movies as part of the watch. First movie – watch after you’ve finished S5. Second movie – watch after S9 and before S10.
