I was one of those rabid fans during the original run, but I actually have low expectations for this reboot. I'm happy to watch this like a reunion show of people who feel like old friends, and just enjoy David and Gillian hanging out again. I even laughed to myself before I saw it, thinking, well, at least I won't feel the need to nitpick every element of this show on the internet! Being an x-files fan was exhausting in the 90s!!
But then they had to go and set the thing in Low Moor.
I'm from Virginia, and I have a special hatred for Low Moor. It is a hole in the middle of nowhere. It is also almost FOUR HOURS away from DC, so they were not just driving back and forth that easily.
Look at a map, Carter.
