i don’t hate ‘the x-files’

i get accused a lot of not actually being a fan of “the x-files” series. i make comments that are negative about the show (its characters, relationships, and its creator). and i do agree to some extent that i sound like i absolutely hate the series. however, i only criticize the series and all the things that i think went wrong with it because the huge x-files fan in my heart wanted better things for a series that crumbled under -imo- terrible direction of storytelling. i wanted to be able to say that “the x-files” series is one of the absolute best series i’ve ever watched. i wanted to be able to list “the x-files” on my list of “best shows ever produced in my life”. i wanted to be able to say that the series came full circle. i wanted to be able to say that the characters only got better as the series progressed. i wanted to be able to say that the relationships of the series added depth and true emotion to the stories being told. i wanted to be able to say that i love every single episode of the series. i wanted to be able to rewatch all the episodes. i wanted to be able to not have a list of “never watch that craptastic episode ever again”. but the sad fact is that “the x-files” did not live up to its potential, it hammered itself into an early grave. yes, it has its brilliant moments. yes, the characters were likable. yes, the relationships present in the series between all characters added to the stories. but… these positives were not, imo, consistent throughout. the main story arc of the series was never brought to a conclusion. in this sense, in my eyes, “the x-files” failed as a successful tv series. ratings numbers, how many fans active online, etc. -to me- do not account towards the success of the series as a story. do i hate “the x-files”? no. do i love “the x-files”? yes, but not so blindly that i will tell anyone i run into, in the xf fandom or outside of it, that it is the best thing i’ve ever watched on tv. i’ll always be a x-phile, but it will always be a little bittersweet.

Robert Patrick~ Actor. President of the Boozefighters MC
I photographed Robert Patrick along with the rest of the cast of the upcoming series “From Dusk Till Dawn”. He had his Boozefighers colors at the shoot. We got to talking about motorcycles for a bit after everyone left. It completely went over my head that he was THE TERMINATOR!!! He turned out to be a really cool dude.
