Review Link: The X-Files “Pilot”

My first review of The X-Files has just gone live over at Emily Ecrivaine Reviews.

Check out my review of Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”.

I’ve been a fan of the show since it first aired in 1993. Although I only got to watch it regularly from 1996/1997 onwards as I was deemed “too young” before then.

In secondary school, my friends and I didn’t meet up to study or play. We met up to watch X-Files on VHS, trade videos we had recorded, swap ideas and collect quotes from the show. I remember one calendar containing page after page of quotes, some in German (because we watched it in German) some translated by us into English (probably not correctly) and some transcribed from original audio we managed to get our hands on. And man, it was weird to hear David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson’s real voices for the first time.

Who knew my teenage obsession with Mulder & Scully would turn out to be this handy after 22 years?!?
