I often have these moments where I get a delayed light bulb moment. As if someone has switched on the light and it stays dark for a few extended moments before ‘bling!’ lightbulb moment and something clicks into place. I can’t even describe how many times this happens (usually when it comes to the timey wimey wibbly wobbly timeline jumpy stuff in Dr Who, but that’s another post on the boil) but this weekend I just found out there aren’t 10 seasons of X Files.
I guess there were 10 years of X Files? But officially 9 seasons. And I always thought urgh, why haven’t they released the final season on DVD? As soon as Mulder got ‘taken’ in one of the last seasons of the show and they brought in Xena, and the bad Terminator from T2.. I thought nah. Not doing it. Not possible. No Scully AND Mulder? Can’t do it. So I never saw the end of the show. I saw the 2nd movie with much confusion and anger at how Mulder and Scully were romantically linked… and I was like.. What. THE.
So now I know that season 9 was the last season – I’m going to watch from where I left off – I’m going into it with low expectations so perhaps I will be able to be pleasantly surprised. Regardless, I’m still quite Scully skeptical that I would welcome the romance between the two and I think the 2nd movie should never have been made – but.. watch this space for zomg!Mulder type squee posts.
