Episode 19, season 1 will always have an eternal place in my heart forever and ever. It was my really first fully watched the X files episode, in Polish t.v. aired on september the 2nd, 1996. 8:10 p.m. local time ^^.
It was the first day of school, sad and happy at once, you know, as all first days of school are.
You can feel sadness of the lost freedom of summer but inside you also feel you did miss the school structures with all their tints of fascination, hate, love.
I didn’t have good relations with kids in the class but I had one friend who was always like a lost twin sister born in other family. Since the very beginning of our friendship we liked creating own enchanted worlds and it was our power against the ordinary kids in the class. After the holiday it turned out things were not going to be different during this school year. All girls in the class had crush on guys from Backstreet Boys or Kelly Familly. If some class mates watched the-X files it was for them just one of many tv-series they liked, nothing intimate.
We were fully engaged in our x files love. We got toy cap guns and started two main investigations. Case X-01 about the strange night lights flying above the hill near graveyard and the case X-02 about our new teacher who seemed to be a vampire (at least: she was hidding something). We were ready to put our life on risk to find the truth, same like Mulder and Scully were doing ♥.
Old good naive times without internet, telephones, apps, tumblr, facebook et cetera. Sometimes (like today) when I have to get up early because of a visit in the health centre in my neighbourhood
I like imagining I’m still in 5th grade and that I’m going to school in the rain or in falling snow and that there’re mystries waiting for me to be solved.
I don’t know how about you but I never wanted to grow up. Now I see I was completely right. I wonder what do now these kids think who at age 10 wanted to be 18, have a car, boyfriend, work and stuff like that. I was trying to stay a child as long as possible, actually even now, I don’t buy that whole “adult’s crap”.
Oh boy, I was supposed to write about the x-files…
As always I found various tips where “The darkness falls” was filmed, among them Seymour Forest and Lighthouse Park. Believe me, two years ago it was like walking among shadows.
The area in the Lighthouse Park looked very convincing. The same high trees from the family: pinaceae, huge ferns and wooden huts. It looked like a deep thick forest somewhere far in the North. It was just hard to believe that several steps away there was a rocky seashore and this ⇒
the real lighthouse like from a sweet scandinavian fairy tale, not from a gloomy forest.
As a child I was pretty well scared after watching “The darkness falls” and I even promised to myself “to never watch any x files episode again!” but the next morning, in the daylight, it was fun to share thoughts with my friend about every single minute of the show and every next time it was less scary (exept the episode about that white humanoid monster crawling in the sewege system, I don’t remember the episode’s title… and it’s good I don’t remember…).
What else did remain from this trip to these sentiments around e: 19, s: 01 ? For example these two little cones.
