The X-Files Forever

The X-Files is a “seamless pop artifact”

“[The X-Files] is a chimera, a mutant; a final, brilliantly inbred expression of the Age of Broadcast Television. […] It is a seamless pop artifact. It is a disturbing and viscerally satisfying expression of where we’ve come from, where we are today, and all those places where we simultaneously yearn and dread to go.” –William Gibson, The Art of The X-Files
