I'm curious to hear more about the thought processes behind abandoning the alien arc. For ATSers who don't know what I mean, check out this
I love all manner of bizarre and paranormal stories, and I will admit that it was the 'monster of the week' type episodes that made me a fan in the
first place. However, it was the alien conspiracy aspect that made me revisit the show in recent years and look at it with a whole new respect.
It seems to me that the writers have decided to leave behind the issues that REALLY matter to humanity in favor of a more mainstream, easily consumed
episodic type of phenomenon. Now that may very well make for an amazing movie, which I hope is the case. But I wonder if the intent was to focus on
the type of story that only makes one question the 'little' aspects of reality rather than those that challenge EVERYTHING we know about reality and
'the system'. Maybe there was some 'pressure' behind this decision?
I don't hold any particular belief about aliens or government conspiracies, but I do think that the reason these ideas resonate with (and cause so
much controversy and disagreement amongst) diverse individuals is that there is at least some very important truth behind it all...whatever that truth
And whatever that truth is, I do still believe it is out there.
...oh, and one more thing...is it any coincidence that the movie is coming out right in the midst of the Dog Days of (sirius) summer? (Robert Anton
Wilson fans will know what I mean
...just finished re-reading Cosmic Trigger I)
