Maybe it's just me being my usual stubborn self, maybe I just reject modernity when it comes to content, I don't know (nor do I really concern myself with it). I've been rewatching The X-Files with a group of my friends, and one of the things I've noticed is my growing contempt for the show. When I was younger, I loved the series. When I watched through it last time, it was with someone else that I no longer associate with, and even then, some of the episodes ground my gears all wrong.Yesterday we watched Humbug and The Calusari. Humbug is one of my favorites, whereas the Calusari I absolutely despise. And as much as I like the concept of the series, as fondly as I think of the series, I kind of only really like the first season. Some of my favorite episodes are not in the first season, but the first season has some of my favorites, like Ice and Darkness Falls, Jersey Devil. Of course it has Tooms, a villain I didn't really like. We're finally coming to an end to season 2, we should have been way beyond season 2, but like a prick I've put off watching X-Files with them and instead we watched other stuff. But like a bad case of leprosy, it's just kind of dangling out there, ready to fall off, so finally I shrugged and we're going to finish season 2. Only 9 more to go! Seasons 6-9 are just god awful, and season 10/11 are thankfully short. I haven't even seen the final season, to be honest, the revival series filled me with the same dread I had for Twin Peaks: The Return, and just like Twin Peaks' revival series, I didn't much care for what I saw in s10.Reinvestigated some old series that they don't even play anymore on TV, like Spicy City and First Wave. They're both a bit rough around the edges, but they're not the worst. First Wave reminds me of The Outer Limits (90s revival series) where they throw in sex scenes, but it was regular network TV, so any nudity was always off-screen. I hate those scenes for the same reason I hate nudity in an HBO series, it's just not content I ever cared for in TV.We watched the original Ghost Adventures "documentary", and then the first season of the show. Yeah, don't do that. Usually I have a pretty strong tolerance for crap, but I'm a hard skeptic and that one just made me want to punch holes in the wall. Zak Bagans is like Adam Sandler, if you get joy out stupid, you might like it.
