I have to admit, the biggest hole in my geek cred resume is that I’ve never watched The X-Files. I know, I know. I’ll give you all a minute to pick your jaws up off the ground.
Looking back I’m pretty sure I saw the first (only?) movie they made, and I did see the odd episode, but I really didn’t watch any more than that. I always wanted to, and in fact I was given Season One on DVD as a gift (from T I believe, maybe?), but it’s just one of those things where you only have so much time, you know?
It appears to be on Netflix in its entirety, and I did give a lot of thought to watching it from the beginning prior to last night’s new episode. Once again, though, there’s only so much time. I think I will give it a shot, however, maybe some night when the wife’s gone to bed or over a weekend perhaps. Right now I’m doing more writing than anything at the computer (though Diablo III is calling me…) and Sara’s been playing Mass Effect on the TV, so we’ll see.
Actually, now that I think about it I could just take my laptop upstairs and watch Netflix up there while she plays. Or, since Bell Aliant added a channel on the digital cable expressly for accessing Netflix, I could just watch it on our television upstairs. Hmm.
At an rate, it’s getting late and I should get to bed, even if it’s only to watch an episode of something or to read for a little while. So much to do, so little time, am I right? How many days until our next holiday again?
