When asked if I had viewed the new X-Files by a friend, I answered “no.” Their eyes widened; the normally casual voice heightened. “But you have to, it’s something else this time!” I sighed, rolled my own eyes – thoughts about the articles and other deadlines piling up, crossed my mind. “Yes, yes, another alien invasion TV show.” I remembered its debut frightening the crap out of me when I was a sleepy adolescent kid.
But back when the X-Files originally debuted in 1993, the world was still moderately naïve. If anything, the X-Files, perhaps unintentionally, woke us up to other possibilities. Perhaps the governments around the world held an agenda we knew nothing about. It was a thought worth thinking. It was a thought that sometimes kept me awake.
Fast forward to the second coming of the X-Files, still with original actors Duchovny and Anderson; and the show seems to be hitting on the questions pursed on everyone’s lips. The broadcast of the new X-Files, which reaches millions across the globe, has already hit on taboo subjects the government prefers us to ignore. The opening 2016 episode is a description of our fears and (hopefully not) a confirmation of our suspicions.
The surveillance state, the military state, the elites, and how a potential mock-up of Russian invasion could be used to shut down the United States as part of a bigger plan to shut down the world, is uttered by Duchovny’s character Mulder and co-workers, in a warning to all. The police have been militarized; the EMP used to shut down the grid… “It’ll probably happen on a Friday…digital money will disappear…”
Anderson’s normally skeptical character utters “You can’t say these things.”
It’s enough that I’ll take my friend’s recommendation on board. “A government that taps your phone, collects your data, and monitors your whereabouts…with impunity. A government can use that data against you when it strikes, and a final takeover begins.” It’s enough that I’ll watch the X-Files with a brand new perspective, as I prepare for more sleepless nights.
