You know what I really appreciate about The X-Files? The fact that Mulder and Scully’s romance wasn’t turned into the center of the plot. It seems like every TV show nowadays focuses on the romance but leaves plot in the backburner.
Yes, Mulder and Scully eventually fell in love, but it wasn’t obvious. The alien conspiracy took the front of the show, and all the other crazy things that would happen to the dynamic duo here and there. Maybe a kiss or an embrace at the end of a show was shown, if that, until the series finale. I appreciate that so much.
The X-Files was one of those gems of a show that WASN’T focused on romance, and I love it for that!
