During the 90s when I was a student in Kalamazoo Michigan, I got completely hooked on The X-Files. I watched the series faithfully every week until I left the United States for Malaysia at the end of 1994. Fortunately for me, The X-Files was so popular that it was also broadcast back home, with only a one-year lag. My youngest brother and I watched the series together. We often got freaked out, quite confused, but loved every bit of it. M left for college in the late 90s and I went back to college for the second time in 2001. Our college lives simply made watching TV a low priority activity and something that we no longer have time for. Nevertheless, my fascination for the series and its characters never wane.
Today at FACTS, I attended the Q&A sessions of Manu Bennett (Crixus from Spartacus), Joe Keery (Steve Harrington from Stranger Things), Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark from Game of Thrones) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully from The X-Files)! This year’s FACTS was fun, interesting, entertaining and all that. But at this moment, only one thought burns in my head – Holy crap! I just saw Agent Scully!
