Thread linkage: I Want to Believe thread one. Thread two. X-Files 3 Has it really been seven years since the 2008 movie? And before that--ten years between movie 1 and movie 2 and six years between the end of the series and the second movie (with the first one coming in the middle of the series run). And it's twenty-two years since the show debuted in 1993. It was also very much of-its-time, with the paranoia etc etc etc closely echoing some of the popular sentiment of the 1990s; it could be that the reason the 2008 film wasn't quite as momentous--in spite of the gap between series and movie--was because the zeitgeist had changed in the meantime. And now, thirteen years after the series closed, I can only imagine that the zeitgeist has changed even more. Certainly television drama has--in a move that was partly the result of the original show--so I'm wondering how this one will work (already we see it's taking the form of a mini-season, instead of a full run--much as Twin Peaks is doing). We don't have a thread on the original, from what I can see, but we should have something for the new series that was just announced.
