X-Files and Physical Formats, eh

I watched the X-Files when it aired on tv, until it became unbearable to watch, after the move to LA California USA from Vancouver British Columbia Canada.

I watched the pilot of Millennium one of the spin off series.

I watched most of The Lone Gunman episodes as they aired.

I bought the complete box set which included the mid-series movie on DVD.

Then I bought the post series movie on Blu Ray.

Recently, I bought the X-Files reunion series.

The X-Files New Season

I haven’t been able to watch it yet because, having been in Federal Government for 13 years in 7 Departments – including the RCMP.

I don’t find tv and movies that entertaining – the lack of authenticity and dumbed down for the public in cliche tropes. is more frustrating than entertaining.

TV’s X-Files – the truth is out there

so unsurprisingly:

‘The X-Files’ Revived Again for 10 New Episodes at Fox

    I can’t wait to see new episodes, it’s about time. All they need to do now is make another movie.

  • I picked up the blu ray second movie and that recent series, now season 1 of X-files 2.0
    all can do now is wait for the Deluxe with X-files 1, Millennium, Lone Gunman and X-Files 2. on some future format
  • Douglas Heidzig's profile photo
    ok no problem! 😊 you never have Blu-Ray , right ?

  • there is a limit to the number of times a person wants to buy the same product. I lived through the VHS/Beta wars and was stunned to see corporations give in to the Blu Ray standard. which is the last physical format we should be willing to buy because subscribing to content that is streamable dovetails with long tail marketing.
  • Douglas Heidzig's profile photo
    ok I see .
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    (joke mode:)you don’t know how bad it was – I worked in the only video store that had VHS and Beta. it was pitiful how the Beta people cried when titles were not always carried in both. (joke:off)
    and in the late 1980s tapes were $120 to $180 dollars and only stores had them. it was “Top Gun” and “Batman” that retailed for $40 and the home owned market was on. then, the chain stores with their buying power, ended all the Mom n Pop Shop with undercutting for $1 what we rented for $2.50 – I clerked at two stores in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
    The cost of manufacturing is practically nil, I also in the early 1990s, I worked as a General Manager for a Video Distributor which sold to stores, and knew that the cost of the tape was under $5 including the box and plastic tray and sold for that $80 to $120.

    also, Elvis Presley fans have been gouged and re-gouged more than any other fandom. we need to consider the environmental impact of consumerism.

    I’ll watch.
  • Douglas Heidzig's profile photo
     ok 😊
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    sorry. rant off, eh
  • Douglas Heidzig's profile photo
     that all right .

    I did meet William B Davis and asked him about the X-files episode where the Lone Gunman explain his character and Davis laughed and said that was the lone gunman’s idea and nothing to do with the reality of the character. fan sharing.

    i just hope they film in Vancouver again. I watched them make that Stephen King episode – the scene where Scully is at a gas station.
  • Jean-Loup Rebours-Smith's profile photo
    I assume they will. Season 10 was filmed there

    Canada is America’s biggest service and resource sector and one of the few nations safe to visit.

USA TV: Before the X-Files, the was Project UFO

for context: 1989 $100 is in 2017 $176.49   Canadian

in American $100 1989 would be $196.61   in 2017

additional

1993 Canada $100 in 2017 is $152.46

1993 USA $ 100 in 2017 is $168.42

    Well yes it is cheaper to film in Vancouver than in LA for sure.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    did you know that America made Canada sign a treaty after WW2 that we would not have our own industry as long as we go to service sector? and we’re the only nation America trades with who has no protection over our tv and movie screen time? that’s the cost of being cheaper, little to nothing of our own – meanwhile – radio had canada content rules.

 

  • Jean-Loup Rebours-Smith's profile photo
    I did not know that no
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    most Canadians don’t and don’t notice. the other thing William B Davis said was that if they’d known that Cancer Man would become a character from just a background player, it would have been cast with an American.
