Today, my dad was telling me that one of his kids at work was talking about the XF, and how if it was coming out now it wouldn't be well received. He said that it only worked because of the interest in government conspiracies at the time. My dad said this in reply:
"He really didn't get the point. The X-Files had good writing, good stories, but what it really came down to was the Mulder and Scully thing. It was their relationship, their companionship. Mulder and Scully are the ones. Their collaboration was what made the show great."
I'm really feeling the need to watch XF and write some fanfic right now. I'm just not sure where to start.
