Those of you who know me are aware that I'm not too eloquent when trying to tell people about myself but here goes.

The X Files first aired in the UK on 19th September 1994.  I was almost 13 and after moving schools two years prior was still trying to find my place.  I was not a popular kid.  I had a different accent, hadn't made the journey to high school with a group of friends and then made the “mistake” in my first year of standing up to some bullies in the popular crowd picking on a smaller kid in my class.   I was an outsider, with no route in.

My dad at the time still vetted my TV viewing and had recorded the show to make sure it was acceptable viewing, thankfully he agreed I could watch it and I started a 20 year love affair with a show and characters that I would lean on during the best and worst moments of my life. Mulder taught me that it was OK not to be the popular kid, that standing up for what's right is sometimes more important and the friends that count will accept you for who you are.   Scully taught me that it was OK to be a girl who was into science, something that was the boy’s domain in my high school. She gave me the strength to go into interviews, meetings, public speaking and to claw my way back from depression after a harsh break up.  The characters taught me that love was complicated and involved a meeting of minds.

I'm also immensely grateful that the fandom has granted me friendship and allowed me to connect with others of a similar mind-set.  You guys are great!
Anyway, on with Part 1 of today’s offering.

I’ve been reading TV Mouse’s reviews of the M&S relationship.  And although I’m not a day 1 shipper, although there was chemistry there I’m more of movie/season 6 shipper (aside from fanfic)
This Vid includes all the Season 1 moments.


Hope you enjoy it, I’m off to watch EBE :)

Day three already. Well, at least it's the weekend. Maybe we'll get caught up.

"Beyond the Sea" is my favorite episode from season one. I love the role reversal of Scully being the believer and Mulder the skeptic. Brad Dourif gives a terrific performance as the serial killer Luther Lee Boggs. Gillian Anderson gets a script that shows off her range as an actor. We get interesting back story for Dana Scully, and new insight into her character.

Writer/s: Glen Morgan & James Wong
Director: David Nutter
Originally aired: January 7, 1994 (in the US) – 5th May 1994 (in Australia)

Synopsis: Scully wakes up to a vision of her father sitting in her living room, a hour after he died at home of a heart attack. After attending his funeral, she journeys with Mulder to see serial murderer Luther Lee Boggs. He claims to have psychic abilities, which have given him information about the whereabouts of two kidnapped victims. Mulder is certain Boggs is a fraud. After seeing another vision of her father, this time during their interview with Boggs, Scully is no longer sure what to believe.

Most Memorable Quote:
SCULLY: You set us up. You're in on this with Lucas Henry. This was a trap for Mulder because he helped put you away. Well, I came here to tell you that if he dies because of what you've done, four days from now, no one will be able to stop me from being the one that will throw the switch and gas you out of this life for good, you son of a bitch!

Welcome to day two of the [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love re-watch mini-marathon. I conscientiously watched each and every one of the season one myth-arc episodes before choosing "Deep Throat." Why? Three reasons. It had all of the typical myth-arc-key elements: There's a government cover-up; Mulder thinks there are aliens involved; Scully says there is no conclusive evidence of anything. We get our first look at Mulder's mysterious government source, code-named "Deep Throat." And, despite her relative inexperience as a field agent, Dana Scully is established as a total bad-ass.

Writer: Chris Carter
Director: Daniel Sackheim
Originally aired: September 17, 1993

Synopsis: Despite Mulder's warning from the man we come to know as "Deep Throat," Mulder and Scully travel to Ellens Air Base in Idaho to investigate the whereabouts of a Air Force test pilot. His wife hasn't seen Colonel Budahas since he had a psychotic break several months earlier. During the investigation, despite being stone-walled by the military at every turn, Mulder and Scully see a UFO, which Mulder thinks is alien technology. Scully disagrees. After they're accosted by some Men in Black, who confiscate their findings, punch Mulder, and order them cease and desist, Scully insists they head back to DC. Mulder appears to agree, then ditches Scully and returns to the military base, where he is taken prisoner and mind-wiped. The climax is Scully holding a security agent at gunpoint to force the military to give Mulder back. Back in the car, Mulder admits he doesn't remember anything. Oh, and they return Colonel Budahas to his wife. Guess what: the Colonel's had a memory wipe, too.

Most Memorable Quote:
MULDER: I think they re-wired that man's brain. Some kind of selective memory drain.

SCULLY: The brain doesn't work like that, Mulder. You can't just go in and erase certain files.

Or can you...

Director: Robert Mandel
Originally aired: September 10, 1993 (in the US)

Synopsis: Dana Scully is assigned by Section Chief Blevins to work with Fox Mulder on the X-Files, a special unit of the F.B.I. specializing in unsolved cases with paranormal overtones. He's an Oxford graduate in psychology who worked for the Violent Crimes Unit. She's a forensic pathologist who spent the last two years teaching at Quantico. He's a believer, she's a skeptic. Their first case takes them to Oregon to investigate the unexplained deaths of some high school students. Mulder believes there are aliens involved, Scully does not. It doesn't go well: another young person dies, their motel gets torched, their only physical evidence, the metallic implant retrieved during an autopsy, ends up in a dusty military warehouse. Nothing is explained to anyone's satisfaction. Plus, just who is that chain-smoking man skulking around the periphery?

Most Memorable Quote:
Mulder: "Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI's most unwanted."

There were hilarious recaps at Television Without Pity, but the link I had is no longer working. Did they take them down? That site is impossible to navigate.
