X Files : Deep Throat ( Season 1 Episode 2 )

by bitznbitez

x-files_logo In the second episode of the first season of X-Files the following exchange happens.  This exchange is between Agent Mulder and a man who won’t give his name, but who in this last exchange has offered information in exchange for “The Truth”.

Man : Mr. Mulder…Why are those like yourself who believe in the existence of extra terrestial life on this earth
not dissuaded by all the evidence to the contrary ?

Mulder : Because all the evidence to the contrary is not entirely dissuasive.

Man : Precisely

Mulder : They’re here aren’t they ?

Man : Mr. Mulder … they’ve been here for a long long time.

This exchange is the premise for the entire series.   The premise is the phenomena that Mulder investigates and believes in, whatever they are, are real.  Not only are they real but they are not new.   They have been happening on this earth for a very long time.

Why am I pondering this ?  Because it turns out Hulu has the entire series online and I never watched it when it was originally broadcast of course.
