Ruminations on TV Shows, Comics, And Music
I was a Big Brother in high school. A group of us signed up to be mentors, and spent our late Friday afternoons/early evenings playing sports, board games, pinball, and having dinner. It was as much a bonding between the Bigs as it was between the Bigs and the Littles. And when the Littles went home, a bunch of us would go to the nearest dorm basement and, along with some of our non-mentoring friends, check out the weirdness that was "X-Files".
The first college I went to only really got together to watch "Friends", which isn't at all why I left but does say something about the people at that school. After one semester, I transferred to a school where a bunch of us would get together and watch things like "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", and, of course, "X-Files".
I've watched many TV series over the years, and when I'm watching things on my own, I tend to enjoy it but not absorb it as much. I haven't watched X-Files (except some of the new stuff) in decades. Yet, even reading the first sentence of an episode description, I'll go "Oh yea! That one! I loved that one." or "Ugh. Doggett." I remember laughing at a bunch of "Friends" episodes, but I can read the complete plot of an episode and have no idea whether or not I'd seen it. I guess I never caught "The One That Was Memorable."
Below is Season Two of an X-Files watchlist.
