TGIF Throwback — The X-Files

Agents Scully and Mulder seriously rocked my world.  I don’t know why I was so drawn to this show, but I recall plopping down every Friday night at 8 p.m. to watch The XFiles. It could have been the eerie opening score, or perhaps the unknown was more captivating to me than the little that I knew as a middle school girl.

Though it aired from 1993 – 2003, I was pretty much done with the show around the time the movie came out in 1998.  By then I was 14-year-old and in ninth grade.  At this point of my life, sexual tension and imagination was my life—which also seemed to have been the main theme of The X-Files.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Mulder and Scully ever made out.  They never kissed, made love, never slept in the same bed.  They just kicked ass, fought, and looked at each other with enough lust to keep me watching every week.  There’s something extremely sexy about self-control, something sexy about holding back and never loosing yourself to the unknown
