A-Z Challenge: X: X Files

What I learned about writing from watching TV has been my theme. I have to say it has been really fun thinking of some shows I have loved and picking a main part of them to talk about.

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.

Excellent show.

AHHH and so it begins!


  1. X-Files was definitely the best choice. I loved that show. Another really good X show is Xena: Warrior Princess.

  2. I never did watch the X Files. It's one of those shows that looked interesting, but never got around to seeing it.

  3. I was a big fan of the show back in the day.

  4. I loved the X-Files. Lots of great memories of that show. :)

  5. It was an awesome show, wasn't it? And I've seen each of the episodes you mentioned. (I spend far too much time watching TV. lol) I think "Fringe" carried on X-Files grand tradition well.
    Congrats on doing so well with the A-Z Challenge! :-)

  6. Sheena-kay - you know I never saw Xena but maybe I should put it on my to watch list!

    Suzi - it was a good watch!

    Alex - me too!

    Julie - it was soooo good.

    Lexa ha well I spend too much time watching TV As well, I have done a whole alphabet on it! ;)

  7. I could never watch the X Files when I was younger. I love the idea of the all supernatural things, but it would have given me nightmares :/ Even now, I can't watch things like that :(

  8. Rebeccah - some of the X Files eps were scary! :)

  9. X-Files is one of those I still watch over and over again. I want to believe.


Please comment, I'd love to know what you think! :)
