I’m worried I’m going to like this show TOO much.

(Also, hey! It’s HelloGiggles’ Erin Foster!)

Never Remake The X-Files, okay, Hollywood?

I usually don’t pay much attention when a beloved franchise from the 80s or 90s gets an update or reboot, as sometimes the new version can be better than the original (duh, Battlestar Galactica) but I will say there is one show I hope will never be remade, not ever, NOT ONCE, not in any capacity and certainly not with two different people playing Mulder and Scully, and that is, of course, The X-Files. All this talk of old titles coming back (like yesterday with the The Magic School Bus, duh again) always reignites the fear I have of an X-Files reboot. I feel like the Hollywood machine inches closer to it everyday. But no! We don’t need it! In fact, let’s all agree we’ll never do it. Ever. No one. There will never be a reboot of this near-perfect television program, okay? I mean Chris Carter could barely give the show a good revival (the second X-Files movie, duh for the third time), so I hope that it’s never considered for a remake. Ever.

(Well unless it’s the actual original X-Files coming back, with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, in which case, yeah duh, we still want a third movie — especially after the disaster of the last one! X-Philes are X-Philes for life!!!!!!!!!! You know I’m glad we didn’t have the internet of today in the 90s. Not that I didn’t geek out all over AOL chat rooms and forums then, because obviously I did, but man I would have been a lost cause if Twitter and Tumblr were around back then. Like I don’t even know if I would have gone to college. I’d be locked in a room stroking a David Duchovny calendar somewhere).

You wanna talk XF fandom nostalgia? Tiny Dancer’s website. That black background and lime green text. That was the fandom compendium, in an age before social media and Wikipedia. I’ve always wanted to know what happened to her (I assume it was a her).

BUT YES. ALL OF THIS. LET’S VOW TO NEVER REMAKE THE X FILES UNLESS IT IS THIRD MOVIE WITH DAVID AND GILLIAN WRITTEN/DIRECTED BY IDK JOSS WHEDON OR SOMETHING.

OKAY OKAY. We are on a roll, guys. First up, let’s all thank Tahlia for teaching me how to do this kind of text reblog post. Secondly, I am TOTALLY ON BOARD with Joss Whedon doing the next movie. MAAAAAYBE JJ Abrams, depending on how the Star Wars movies go. 

AND TINY DANCER! WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? The black and the green and the TIMES NEW ROMAN!!!! God that website was EVERYTHING.

Also, you guys — I used to have an X-Files pen pal and her name was Carrie and I think she once sent me a photo of her car because it was decorated with X-Files paraphernalia and I sent her a photo of my room for the same reasons and maybe she lived in California or maybe Oregon… I wonder what happened to her. CARRIE! WHERE ARE YOU? WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? DO YOU REMEMBER ME? Hmm, I don’t even know if I gave my real name, actually. I was super terrified of being Catfished before Catfishing was Catfhising! But thanks to The X-Files, I knew there could be DANGER on the internet.

Not like that stopped me from making my alternative screen name for all my X-Files related AOL time “xfille” which was kind of annoying because I would also have to log out and then back on and it was AOL so it took FOREVER but it was mostly annoying because that screen name ended up making other AOL folk mistaking me for a porn actress, and not for the Francophile x-phile joke I was going for. See, fille = girl in French, but I was making a pun on the x-philes aka the fans of the show. So you see how that comes across kind of porny? It translates, roughly, to “x girl.” Good job, me.

Must-See TV - Modern Loss

Something I wrote.

Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but now that we’re here… Look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around this spot, it was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, ‘Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,’ and then you said to me, ‘I can be a duck!’ We have been chasing each other for a long time. We’ve been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. Chasing you has been the smartest thing I’ve ever done in my life and being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we don’t have to chase each other because we caught each other.

Brennan: When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved incase our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela and I wrote to you. Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and maybe even Santa Claus and because of you I’ve started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me such joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you, you’re already looking at me.  Like you it makes no sense, and like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful. This is that time, this is that place.

BEST VOWS EVER. I know this because I’ve been watching every television episode that has a big wedding on it ever for this project I am working on and I’ve been seeing a LOT of cheesy vows, and I’m not going to say these aren’t cheesy (I mean “buried alive” and “ghosts” — obviously this show is a soap opera trying to pretend to be a crime procedural), but they were damn good. Awww. I love weddings!

I don’t understand how the weather works and how the weather seems to know what day it is like it’s an exact science (although I suppose that’s because it is an exact science). But all of a sudden it became June and now we’ve got June Gloom.
Yesterday. June 1st. It was overcast in lovely Venice Beach. So I told my friends I was going to use the gross weather as the perfect excuse to write. Which I did. It’s nice to be productive on a Saturday. Sometimes there’s nothing better. I wanted to reward myself with some sunshine. But after a bike ride I realized that June Gloom was in full effect. So then I went home and did some more writing and when I’d had enough of that I finished watching Top of the Lake and started watching Orphan Black. June Gloom is the best excuse to write and watch TV.
Today. June 2nd. I’ve made beach plans but I woke up a little bit ago and once again the marine layer is thick. Maybe I’ll just stay inside and finish Orphan Black. Maybe I’ll write all day. Maybe I’ll go back to bed.
To be honest, I don’t mind June Gloom. I sort of love it.

WHERE MY NCIS FANS AT? Like hi can we talk about last night’s season finale and WHAT WAS THAT ENDING??? and OMG this moment between Tony and Ziva AKA TIVA????????
Speaking of, I watched The X-Files for all nine seasons and I think NCIS and these two have surpassed Mulder and Scully as the longest running “will they or won’t they” relationship but I could be wrong who knows about these things?
GODDAMMIT I love my crime procedurals!

Guys. Look at this. We get more of this. Soon. So soon. We are the luckiest sons of bitches. Thank you, Netflix. THANK YOU.

Scully, GPOY, forever. And yes I know exactly what episode this is from (Season 5, “Bad Blood”).

This is a good TV show and you should watch it. Also check out The House of Cards pilot, kinda different, kinda similar, also good.
