Nine years later I still find it funny, looking back on it anyway, that my very first X Files experience was with "Requiem" of all things. Never having seen an episode in my life, I'm amazed that an episode of that nature was able to grab me, but it did. As I became more engrossed in the show, I realized what a special experience it all was and how much I truly enjoyed having the show as a small part of my life. I've made lifelong friends, learned more than I ever could've imagined, and now have become a small part of the X Files family. Six years ago when I was sitting in my apartment in New York City watching the television fade out on Mulder and Scully, I never would've imagined that we'd be in this position, blessed enough to get one more glimpse into the life of two of the greatest TV characters in history. But here we are!

It has been an absolute pleasure being a part of the Big Light world over the last few months, getting to know all of you and sharing in your enthusiasm over such a unique and wonderful experience that we all shared in some way over the last 15 years. Your joy and sheer exuberance has been an inspiring thing to watch, and I am constantly in awe of your ideas and passionate devotion. Thank you for letting me be a part of that, and I look forward to continuing on in the future.

When you go to the theaters around the world in the next week or so, just remember to sit back and enjoy the ride. And remember that thousands of people all over the globe are right there with you. Here’s to The X Files: William Saves 2012!

"The X Files: William Saves 2012"

LOL. I sincerely hope that movie gets made. Or at least a fan-made YouTube version thereof. :)

I noticed most of the ages in the photos that are posted are of a
generation much younger than myself. I never watched the X-Files
when it was on regular prime time television. I found it about three
years ago when I was surfing the late night shows. It was on TNT
at 11:00pm and had more than one show, and it lasted till about
2:00am. I was amazed from the first one that I ever watched.
Then I noticed that the Science Fiction Network was also showing
the series in the late afternoon. I didn't know how many years it
was on television, but I found out. I bought all nine seasons in one
DVD set. That is about 68 DVD's, some 200 plus episodes. I have
watched the complete series over ten times. I have the first X-files
movie on DVD, and I plan to buy the second one when it comes out
on DVD. I read most of the reviews that came out, but that didn't
stop me from seeing the movie, and I'm going again tomorrow.
There was a positive review in the San Francisco Chronicle and
both of the Seattle newspapers. I live in Seattle, not very far from
Vancouver. The pilot of the series starts in Oregon and there are
a couple of episodes that take place in Seattle area. I know it was
filmed up in Vancouver for the first five years. I just wish I had
been watching it when they were filming those five years, because
I would have gone up to Vancouver and would try to get a part as
an extra or something. The new movie is a fine film and it is one
of those that makes you think and not just sit there. I have watched
lots of films over the years especially at the Art Houses(mainly
foreign films). This film kind of took me back to those days were
we have a plot, relationships, and great interaction between the
main characters of the film. My age I will not give away, but I'm
old enough to be Chris Carter's father. I want to thank Chris and
Frank for such a great movie, and I want to give kudos to Gillian
and David for a fine performance. X-files is where I first saw
them and now I have most of the movies that they have done
before and after the X-files. I have Gillian's UK website as a
favorite and also Annabelle Gish has a good website. I have
Big Light as a favorite on my computer, and I click into it every
day to see what is new. Well thanks for letting me share my
story and observations-Dushan

All of my "times" are scattered through the movie thread. Except my 3rd, which I should get over there now and get to.

Alison, this blog post totally made me tear up. With all of the ups and downs I've been feeling the past few days reading reviews and feeling like this day would never come, I've caught myself thinking I wish the movie was over with already. I've forgotten how much fun it will be to sink into that theater seat and catch up with my old friends Mulder and Scully for an hour or two. We are blessed to have this opportunity, which I sincerely doubted would ever come.

I too am blessed to have made lifelong friends through this show. I agree with Frank, something about TXF attracts a passionate, intelligent, determined type of fan, and I am constantly amazed by the people I continue to meet online and at fan events.

People, get ready for a fun weekend and let's try to make our little movie a big hit. But most of all, enjoy yourselves!
