Day 24 of #AtoZChallenge
If you are 80s kid, there is no way you could have missed the X-files TV series. During that time, only two kinds of kids existed-one who were die-hard X-files fan and the other who were friends with the first set and ended up listening to X-files narration in class rooms.
Often touted as one of the best TV series to be made ever, it touched the sensitive and sensational topic of paranormal and aliens. The series practically ruled the television from the early nineties to late 2000s. Many sequels of the series were floated after the first season and the latest is expected to be aired sometime in 2017-18. X-files book series, in spite of some staunch criticism, became an instant hit with the fans. The audio books of the series which were read by some of the TV stars of the series also became very popular.
Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are the detective duo of FBI in X-files who investigate the paranormal activities. While Mulder and Scully are poles apart in their opinions about the phenomenon, they make a great team. Mulder mostly has the top-down approach of believing what he sees and then digging deep into the truth. Scully, on the other hand, applies a calculated and analytical approach to reveal the truth. Their chemistry created magic on screen and in print too.
Many versions of X-files have been published in the last two decades. Novels, comic books, colouring books and audio versions-there is a lot for X-files fans. Though all versions have been equally popular, but some in the series stand out for the crisp writing and storytelling such as The Truth is Out There, Trust No One, Book of the Unexplained. Two new novels are to be added to the series in the next couple of years, Agents of Chaos and Devil’s Advocate which will take the readers back to the making of Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.
