How FOX’s X-Files Marathon Will Reinstate My Blerd Card
Posted on July 8, 2015
If you haven’t heard, The X-Files is returning to television for a limited run. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will both be back as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. And blerds are hotly anticipating the shows debut. But in all of the hype, I’m feeling a bit left out. Why? Well, I have a secret. And for a modern day blerd, it’s a big one.
I have never seen a single episode of The X-Files.
I know this may come as a shock. I am a Buffy the Vampire Slayerdevotee. I still stan for Fringe. I even watched the entire run of Roswell. But somehow, that younger me never found it in him to tune in to one of the most known and successful sci-fi shows in history.
But now, I can be redeemed.
In the promotional push up to the debut of The X-Files six episode limited series, FOX will release the entire series, all 9 seasons, one episode a day, until the series bows. Yes, that is 201 straight days of The X-Files.
