If someone had asked you a few years ago which was more likely: A) Being abducted by aliens or B) The X-Files returning to television, you’d probably have picked “A” (especially if you’re theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking). It seems funny now, because you’d have to be stranded on Mars to not know that FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dr. Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) returned to the X-Files in all new episodes of Fox’s sci-fi thriller on January 24, 2016.
As a child of the 90s, The X-Files was everything to my nerdy little family. I vividly remember my parents and grandparents telling me that the show was too scary to watch. I recall scoffing at them, insisting on watching the program, and then having nightmares about monsters and space crafts and porcelain dolls (oh my). For years I literally could not watch the show because it gave me the heebie jeebies!
Now, as an adult, I am in full-fledged binge watching mode, catching up on a decade of television episodes and movies about adventures with the unexplained and mysterious!
So, in honor of the return of the program and in spirit of my current marathon, I decided to watch and review an X-Files themed fan film called The X-sy O-sy Files. Unlike it’s dramatic (and sometimes down right frightening) source of inspiration, The X-sy O-sy Files is a comedy that spoofs the original source material.
Do I recommend it to you, GeekGirl World? The truth is out there! (No, really! The truth is in my video. Check it out!)
Watch The X-sy O-sy Files and let us know what you think, GeekGirl World!
