X-Files

Since X-Files is getting restarted later this month, I thought I would try to watch the original show. Prior to today, I think I've only watched one episode.  I've now watched the pilot and am nearly done with the second episode.

I don't think it's for me, but I'll give it a couple more episodes.

What's really getting me though is that I just finished watching the first two seasons of The Fall, also starring Gillian Anderson.  In that show, she's the ultra-competent detective.  In X-Files, her character comes off as a whiny subordinate to Duchovny's character.  Duchovny's character is no less whiny.  I much preferred The Fall's Gillian Anderson character.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
