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?

BUSY DAY for David Duchovny and the Duchovniacs with LA interview tour

OK – That should be the new name of the band LMAO

David Duchovny and the Duchovniacs

The day started on THE TALK… The big questions? WHAT’s THE DEAL WITH THE PINK SHIRT? (Say that like Seinfeld and it is so much funnier). I liked it but it did cause a lot of hub-bub on THE TWITTER! Of course half way through all of our female (and maybe a few male) Duchovniacs were like “WHEN CAN I PRACTICE STAGE FIGHTING WITH DAVID?” There was a lot of discussion requesting David grab THEIR shirt and wrestle. OMG!!!

Then there was ACCESS HOLLYWOOD

David has a very sincere conversation about FANS dictating new X-FILES REVIVAL – WTG Duchovniacs!!! Same Pink shirt? Must have packed light from Vancouver lol

THEN on to ET… Once again PRETTY IN PINK!

Not a bad interview…

AND THEN ONTO THE LATE LATE SHOW on CBS
CLICK HERE to watch full episode.

This is a very cool segment “Oh this is a serious question,” Says Mr. Duchovny. After the fluff from above interviews he was clearly surprised.

PS I already miss the pink…

 

LOVING ME SOME JAMES CORDON – Not the first to use “DOUBLE D” but certainly the funniest!!! Meanwhile David renames Jon Snow’s “package” to be “KIT”… From now on I too will call my reproductive organs “MY KIT”. Although some assembly may be required…
