This show may shut off some that like to be in denial about the unknown realms of nature and the universe by showing off aliens, monsters, and other weird things. Yet it makes you wonder if these things are really happening around us and we have left our minds closed to their existence. The main characters, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, are two contradicting forces that when paired together become the greatest force against anything in their way. Sometimes showing it takes a different point of view on things in order to get further. A different set of eyes to see what you don’t see.
Mulder is constantly looking for truth and leaves his mind open to any sort of possibility. Most of the time he gets on to something, yet he is stopped by some force the further he gets. Later on, you notice he appears to be used by those higher up than him, yet he pursues further and doesn’t quit. Proving that you cannot destroy free will.
The series has a couple plot lines it tends to flow along. There’s the main story, involving the main characters throughout the plot. Then there is the micro plots in every episode, each with some different event happening. Some episodes tie in with another. Some are really off the wall. One thing is they all flow and sort of twist together, leaving cliffhangers along the way.
Another interesting part is lots of different actors made appearances in X-Files, like Rob Van Dam, most of the actors from Breaking Bad, and quite a lot more. Like little Easter eggs waiting to be found. There’s also different things to notice throughout the places they go to or the things they say. There are various hints to other shows and movies, even real life events. Subtle humor is nested all over the place.
It is quite well written series that makes you want to keep going to see what’s next, but also written in a way that you can pick out almost any episode and watch it again (which is probably great for TV networks that play random episodes as re-runs.). I also love the humor within the show.
