X-Files and Art Bell
I just got the first disc of the first season of the X-Files today from Netflix. I used to love the show and it holds up pretty well. It's strange to see Scully pouring over microfiche and not searching the Internet. Before this show came out I was a huge Art Bell fan and into all the conspiracy theories. I remember people calling into Art Bell talking about flying black triangles and then a few weeks later seeing it featured in an episode - exciting!
I finally grew out of all that around 1995 when I started my computer career. It's funny how some people never grow out of it.
