EARTH CHILDREN ARE WEIRD – X-FILES PICTURE BOOK (MY REVIEW BELOW)

ABOUT THE X-FILES: EARTH CHILDREN ARE WEIRD

One the most beloved TV shows of all time is now a sweet, silly, sci-fi bedtime story! In The X Files: Earth Children Are Weird, best pals Dana (Scully) and Fox (Mulder) have pitched a tent in the backyard for a sleepover. But the night is full of strange sounds, lights, and shadows. Surely there’s a rational, scientific explanation for everything . . . or is there? With beautiful illustrations of pint-sized Dana and Fox, this humorous and not-scary-at-all story will introduce the cult TV show to an entire new generation of fans.

EARTH CHILDREN ARE WEIRD – X-FILES PICTURE BOOK – MY REVIEW

Clearly I am five years old because this maybe one of my favorite things from X-Files team in years. Maybe because i can almost see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson acting this out like a sketch in my head. Maybe because in an odd way this short picture book has more mythology material than the 2008 movie and 2015 Season 10.

I question whether kids can appreciate this book as much as me, without my reference of 24 years of X-Files fandom in their past .

I am sure my 9yo niece will love this. Overhearing her mother, my sister, binge watch the show on Netflix the past few years, somehow Reilly knows about Mulder looking for his sister. Clearly she is more than just eaves dropping, right?

I do fear a number of shippers out there are having a field day with Dana hosting Fox for a sleep over – especially as we see them ascend the stairs to sleep inside, after a backyard camping date goes awry.

As kids’ books goes, I feel I have seen this story before. Scully takes on the role of Bud Abbott to Mulder’s Lou Costello.  It’s cute and effective.

If anything my biggest critique is that it’s too short. The book feels like an episode of a comic that, upon reaching the last page, one thinks, wow I spent a lot of money for a few pages and an incomplete story. I want more and would prefer the graffic novel in its entity than episodic pages – only so I can save by buying pages in bulk.

If you are a fan and have some kids, OR like me ARE a big kid, check this picture story out.

And for MSR fans….

Am I the only one hearing George Takei in my head right now?

SUPERBOWL HALFTIME TEASER from #thexfiles #sb50 MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!

SUPERBOWL HALFTIME X-FILES TEASER

MY STRUGGLE 2 has long been touted as Dana Scully’s struggle. This monologue is Scully’s response to Mulder’s opening monologue from My Struggle. But did X-Files / FOX just show us the CLIFFHANGER we have heard so much about already? If so YOU BETTER GIVE US SEASON 11!!!

I am only writing this now because the Superbowl Game is almost as bad as its commercials this year AND this video was so HOLY CRAP!!!

 

“My name is Dana Catherine Scully…” Scully reminds us she is Catholic by adding her middle name.

Dr. Scully looks more determined than ever!

Scully

Dr. Scully looks more determined than ever!

OMG! WTF? “CRYLAUGHING” another fan said…

IS SCULLY AN ALIEN???
OR
Is the BOUNTY HUNTER impersonating her???
OR
Is Chris Carter totally screwing with us again???
AND
Was Mulder married to an alien? Horrible tragic twist!

AS USUAL we have more questions than answers… we better not have to wait 13 more years for some of those answers.

IS SCULLY AN ALIEN or is the BOUNTY HUNTER impersonating her?

IS SCULLY AN ALIEN or is the BOUNTY HUNTER impersonating her?

Did you miss the video before X-Files Twitter took it down?

We had it here until 9:30pm but took it down out of respect for fans etc. clearly FOX / X-FILES don’t want it out there…

OR DO THEY?
