X only has one contender: X FILES.
A will they won’t they relationship? Tick. Aliens? Tick. Overall mystery? Tick. Main Characters whose outlook is different? Tick.
What I love about X Files – among many things – are the episodes which take an idea and run with it. The bank which explodes over and over. The bodyswap episode. The man who has good luck but causes bad. The genie who grants wishes.
The X Files took an idea which would be the whole premise of another series, and ran with it in 44 minutes. And you know what? They always did it a lot better than those shows. They thought through the premise for each episode. They weren’t lazy with the get out clause to fix things.
Quotes:I’m Dana Scully. I’ve been assigned to work with you.
AHHH and so it begins!
