    Then I can come to you with my questions! I have gone to the edges of some of the X-Files boards and it's a little scary dipping your toe into conversations that have been going on since the nineties. lol I probably will one day break down and invest in the DVDs because Netflix won't last forever and I really do like watching the show. I find it oddly relaxing as well, I get lost in it.

    My boys were on a kick watching 3rd Rock from the Sun. My 12 year old would laugh his ass off.

    Please feel free! I've been a fan since the original run, so I was in some of those boards during their heyday and they were really intense then. I very occassionally lurk on one or two of them just to see what's being said, but they're mostly calm discussions now about old episodes, or more likely, arguing about the lead actors' lives. There are certain factions of Duchovny and Anderson fans that hate each other and get seriously invested in their fantardation. The hints in the last year that DD and GA might be romantically involved have sent a few into meltdown territory, which is mildly amusing to watch.

    lol, marysomething.....I remember her. Fantardation can be one of the most entertaining things in the world, seriously. As for the show......Well, I know I had questions during the first run of my watching it. Lately, I've been watching just whatever I feel like, but I know toward season 5 things start changing. I know some people like the mytharcs and some people hate them, but I really love all of it. I love the episodes with Michael McKean and the little clues left behind.

    ^by the way, I did watch some episodes of Black Books last night and it was hysterical! I think my favorite one so far is when they hire the creepy cleaning guy and house sit. I will see if there is any of Dylan Moran's standup around.

    Some of what you may be picking up on is that the tone of the show changed after season 5. It left filming in Vancouver and went to LA and suddenly all the dark, dreariness that added a lot to the show disappeared and suddenly it's sunshine and palm trees. If you're talking in terms of the storylines, season 5 was after the resolution to Scully's cancer and so they focused on a lot of monster-of-the-week type stuff and just put the mytharc in here and there. That's also the season that introduced Diana Fowley. To her credit, Mimi Rogers was so convincing in that role, that I hate her to this day.

I wasn't fanatical about the show or movie, but I enjoyed it and thought it was kooky.
    Don't get me wrong I'm glad I got them and all but seriously you can buy all 9 seasons for the price of one of the ones I bought when they first came out! I am totally nerd though. I have the action figures and the Barbie's and tons of other stuff. When I first got a computer I spent my evenings reading fan fic.

    I can remember lurking online reading spoiler boards trying to figure out what was going to happen. I also remember that I used to watch with one of my friends who was also a hardcore phile, and we would almost rip each other's arms off if they so much as touched hands. You'd think they were fucking, we were so shocked.

    Dylan Moran's imitation of Americans had me rolling on the floor. As did his description of the French. There's tons of it up on YouTube.
