    Nah, I was only kidding with you. I know such a game is quite boring.

    This however is a fun game along the same lines, very addictive: http://www.famousobjectsfromclassicmovies.com

    Wow that series has a 9.2 rating on IMDb

    I'm definitely going to be trying this out. Thanks for the recommendation my dear toilet roll tube.

    Oh you stopped at the horses head? Naughty toiletroll, you were supposed to see how difficult it got.

    Have you heard about the new mini season of X-Files confirmed? That is very exciting.

    We both came out enlightened. Actually, you're wrong on this occasion, the truth is existential. wink

    That's exactly why most people's "truths" have been photoshopped! I had to give myself a psychic lobotomy to remove recognition of the concepts "ugly" and "unbearable", and a few others, in order to come to terms with my own personal "truths".

    I'm okay with "existential", by the way.

    I wonder if it is a return to the old days of the start of the series. Those were the episodes I enjoyed. A dip into the world of the misterious, paranormal and unknown.

    Later the series became obsessed with itself. It was no longer about aliens and ghosts, it was about internal FBI politics. A loop that just kept getting denser and everytime you got to some kind of resolution, it was only to hear "Oh,, you found about this? Nah... That's what we wanted you to believe."
    Became a pointless waste of time and I lost interest.

    I want to believe.

    Actually, they say this mini series is supposed to tie some loose ends, because they knew full well what you just described about the later seasons. I'm with you on the unnecessary politics to try and deepen the narrative; which actually had the opposite effect.

    So from what I gather Chris Carter wants to get as much of the original team back as possible to resume rather than re-make, which is what i've summed from all the press that I've read.

    To be realistic here, it won't be exactly the same, but it might at least fulfil the deficiency we experienced in S09.

    Anyway, I have mixed feelings of both optimism and pessimism - I wouldn't want to leave myself open for disappointment now would I, like what happened with Prometheus...

    Hahaaa.. toiletrolltube, please, please don't apologize. Without a bunch of people drinking and talking sh*t there would be nothing entertaining to distract us from the ugly unbearableness of it all!

    My distracting (and cynical) contribution to this debate is to raise the possibility that somebody spent all the money they made from the original X-Files franchise and needs to make some more. I was a fan in the early days but the shine wore off for me when they had exhausted the original concepts and the plots had to get sillier and sillier in order to keep interest up. A phenomenon not exclusive to X-Files BTW, most tv series follow the same path, ending up being kept afloat with bigger budgets and special effects trying to compensate for ever weaker plot concepts. I bet this is what will happen if X-Files is revived. It's going to make Marvin's big-as-a-planet brain even more depressed!
