Another post today, because I have to honor the occasion: LJ tells me that today, in 1993, The X-Files
first aired. I have such unadulterated, unwavering love for that show. It was the first show I ever got "hooked" on, and I remember very vividly the summer that I got hooked. It was 1997...I was just about to enter seventh grade, and little did I know how much that show would come to help me and be some sort of odd touchstone in that particular school year.
So to celebrate, I have pics and quotes below the cut.
My favorite episode? I cannot choose, I refuse to. When you have a show you love and are unashamedly obsessed with, it's rather hard to pick just one
episode, especially when there were so many good ones. Off the top of my head? Bad Blood
Dreamland I & II
Beyond the Sea
Which leads me to my current quandary; I received a $50 giftcard for Barnes & Noble from my aunt and uncle (the sweetest people, and I miss them terribly; they live in Ohio, so I rarely get to see them) for my college graduation. I really, really want to buy A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
, and spend the difference purchasing a DVD I've been lusting after. The problem is that I'm lusting after lots
of DVDs. I thought about getting a season of The X-Files
; I only have Season 3, and logically, I really need Season 1, but Seasons 4-6 are my favorites. I hate making decisions like this. There are also some other shows and movies I want, so I might decide to just put The X-Files
on the backburner for now. But I can't...damnit!
Anyway, enjoy my tribute to one of the best shows ever made.( Picspam! And quotes!Collapse )
