Yep, it was clear all along, though people just thought the X Fikes was mere entertainment.

That is what bought me here many years ago, I wanted to learn more.

The answer to your question is probably going to be disappointing to you. The "X files" was just entertainment. That's it, period.

Except, they drew on some real topics. Not all of it do I think is real, of course. But, they drew on a large swath of conspiracy theories, some with a basis in truth and probable, and others more fringe.

Who would have thought a machine could wield so much power and control in poi.

It sort of suggested the Chinese social credit scoring system.

I would live to see more poi, hope it happens. I liked Finch. Though Jim is an intriguing person.

The smoking man was a character that I found really interesting, as much as he was evil, I wanted to know more about his backstory, and learn about what made him who he is. They touched upon this in the series, but I wanted more.

Though reality is, her in Australia, we have our own Area 51, in woomera, south Australia, it’s the Same size as Victoria, and it is restricted land shoot to kill stuff.

Have you checked out Millennium?

Pine Gap near Alice Springs as well. Tons of stuff the general public just don't know about.

Gotta say, the themes back in the 80’s are so much cooler than today.

The A team theme is magic, so is knight rider, airwolf, Dallas, the Incredible Hulk, CHIPS.

Themes these days are terrible.

Very true, there are so many secrets in Australia. I have heard from a reliable source that RAAF BASE sale is often used as a launch and recovery site for u2 aircraft.

Also a major RAAF BASE in nsw is used as a nuclear weapons storage facility for the US. And the same base apparently is a secondary base for B2 stealth aircraft should Guam have a strike by another nation. Unsure which base as the person wouldn’t tell me.

I was speaking to one of my Aboriginsl elders I knew, he told me about an area in central Australia in the middle if nothing, he came across a steel post with a keypad, and speaker on it. He never pressed the talk button.

Who knows.

An early news report of the Chinese AI system at the time showed their screen display in action. It was identical to the machine's read out they had on Person of Interest. It was at that point I no longer considered Person of Interest science fiction.

Me too, the complete box set! My favorite show of all time!

Skinwalker ranch was mentioned in the Drive episode wasn't it?

TRUST NO ONE!


That's paranoid. People in that show do trust other people. Think of X-Files, where Scully (what a name.. basically 'skull') doesn't trust Mulder (this name is almost 'Murder') or vice versa. There are plenty of trustworthy people, not only as characters in that fictional TV show, but in real life as well. It would be a miserable life to not trust anyone ever.

I'd rather trust people and be fooled, than never trust anyone and live a miserable life.

Also, wasn't the REAL message of that show: "The truth is out there"?

I thought the original quote was inspired by rose buds, but then in one episode as the cigarette smoking man died, he did tell Mulder to trust no one. Mulder was still s3arching for the truth though.

Part of the source of the show is shown in one of the LG episodes: The Sixty Greatest Conspiracies of All Time. (By the time the show came out the book had expanded to: The 80 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time).

Any CT worth their weight would know this. )Uh, might be worthy of a DJT thread!!!)

Hech. The X-Files had flying triangles in the first episode!!!

Forward thinking? Kinda. Before the cirve of current Americana?? Definitely!

Is it super special??

IDK.

Those are personal feelings of individuals who are all different. (I personally may have been abducted,… more than once but do not try to ‘drive it down the belief system throat’ of other people).

It is good entertainment!! (Although, Roswell is *not* in the NW of NM!!))

The quote from the X files I believe resonates now more than I guess the producers realised back in the 90’s that in these times should be a philosophy that we all live by, with constant monitoring, tracking, watching spying is:

TRUST NO ONE!

Remember this series was created whilst the internet was in its infancy, smart phones were not a reality.

Now we are so open to tracing, tracking, invasion, theft.
