TV From The Crypts: The X-Files

It’s been too long since I’ve written a post for you all, and here I come back with a shocker. This one is just as much a shock for me as it might be for you. No, I am not writing about the recent reboot of the X-Files. Instead I am writing about the good old classic TV show from the 1990’s. The show that I grew up loving, one that made me interested in pursuing a career in medicine, and got me all sorts of excited about all things science-fiction. It was probably my first on screen crush as well, as 12-year old me was head over heels for Fox Mulder. So here I am, over twenty years later, re-watching the classic and iconic TV show. Watching this show has left me surprised and shocked in many ways, and I want to tell you why. I doubt there will be many spoilers here, but just in case, be forewarned this will be full of spoilers, and revelations.

Vancouver: Nerd Hollywood North

beachHey there, Evil Geeks…. although I guess this time out it might be more accurate to say “Eh there, Evil Geeks”.  Have you ever found yourself watching one of your favorite TV shows, only to find yourself wondering where the show was actually shot?  The cities you see week in and week out on your television look SUPER familiar, but for some reason you can’t figure out exactly where the actors are. It looks like your average American city, but it’s too urban and compact to be Los Angeles. It doesn’t have the wholesome Midwestern feel of Chicago. It’s too clean to be New York. Atlanta? Nope, not enough strippers. Dallas? Not enough pick up trucks with gun racks on the road.  The deja vu sweeps over you as you know you’ve seen this place before. We’re you dragged there on vacation as a kid? Were you forced to visit an aged aunt there at some point? Stuck for a few hours on a layover?  You’ve seen it before, but WHERE!?!?!?! Well thanks to our friends over at Fortress Geek, you’re days of befuddlement are over! You’ve definitely seen that city somewhere before and chances are it was on TV. What could this magical, holy land of TV production possibly be? Chances are, it’s Vancouver, British Columbia!
