X-Files: How we respond to aliens vs. Mulder and Scully — in GIFs
Mulder and Scully were cool as could be on the X-Files. Here's how we'd respond to monsters as opposed to how they did.
At the recent Television Critics Association event, Fox announced that there have been talks about re-creating the hit series that ran from 1993 to 2002. We're not just talking a rumor here, either. Apparently, the network has been chatting with original series creator Chris Carter about a reboot.
All this discussion about remaking the series got us thinking about just how awesome and cool Mulder and Scully were on the show. Seriously, with all of the wacky crap they had to deal with, they both reacted to it much better than we mere mortals ever would have.
Here are some examples of how much cooler Mulder and Scully are compared to the rest of the human race.
Situation: An alien spacecraft has been spotted flying over your neighborhood
Us: "Oh my God, no! This is too horrific to contemplate!"
Mulder and Scully: "Ho-hum, that's interesting. I guess I should stop reading this very interesting book and go check it out."
Situation: A mutated human being is stalking outside your window
Us: "Can't breathe. Can't breathe. Can't breathe."
Mulder and Scully: "Everybody else stand back. We got this."
Situation: You've been trapped in hallucinogenic fungus that is slowly eating away your flesh
Us: "We're all gonna die!"
Mulder and Scully: "Hmm... let me ponder how to get us out of this unfortunate state of affairs."
Situation: An alien spaceship has just landed right in front of you
Us: "I think I just peed myself."
Mulder and Scully: "Those lights look intriguing. Let's go investigate."
Situation: Monsters have been spotted coming out of the nearby woods
Us: "Please don't let them eat me. I'm too young to die."
Mulder and Scully: "We've got guns and nifty FBI jackets. We're so on top of this."
Situation: Flukeman is coming to get us
Us: "I want my mommy!"
Mulder and Scully: "Bitch, please."
