OMG, as someone who also watched XF “live,” I will second the throwing things at the TV sentiment. (I did. I had a whole arsenal of cushions that became projectiles.) I was seriously disillusioned with TV for years afterwards, lol. Sad life I lead.
Oh honey, you know I understand that pain. Cushions, cups, my brother, my OWN body - I mean, seriously ANYTHING I could throw, was THROWN. I cursed EVERYTHING, I’ve never said “FUCK YOU CHRIS CARTER I HATE YOUR FACE AND EVERYTHINGGGGGG” more times in my entire life! And YES - After watching TxF “live”, TV was just was not the same at ALL anymore. To steal a quote from Brennan, “My whole world turned upside down”
It was the same when I watched ‘Fight the Future’ on opening night in the theater! Cursing the heavens for that damn bee! I say this all the time, but ONLY Chris Carter can get away with his leads being cockblocked by a DAMN BEE! Oh, TxF has forever ruined my life. I wouldn’t change a day though; it hurt my soul in the most glorious of ways.
