Production is underway for the reboot of “The X-Files” and David Duchovny says the first script he got made him cry. After I read that headline, I thought to myself—“Really? The script was that bad?”
“The X-Files” premiered on Fox in the fall of 1993. I had recently just separated from my wife in Cincinnati and was living in Springfield, Ohio. I followed a job there. I had a running joke about Springfield and it was—“if you are a homeless person, Springfield would be a great place to live, because there are so many empty buildings.”
Not kidding. Probably mean, but not kidding.
Watching “The X-Files” was a good diversion for me in Springfield as I truly didn’t like living there. I only lasted there for about six months and found another job back in Cincinnati.
I kept up my interest with that show when I moved back to The Queen City. It stayed on for nine seasons—a bit too long in my view.
I’ll watch the reboot when it comes back or at least sample it, but if it doesn’t make me cry like it did for David Duchovny, I’m turning it off.
Kidding. I think.
