Piggy backing of what they talked about with X Files. A show that I feel like was a sort of a modern version or a new type of series like X Files is the show Supernatural on the CW. I've been a fan of the show since the first season and I've just began watching X-Files because I like Supernatural so much. They both kind of have the same style of the -Monster-of-the-week format with the later seasons on Supernatural kind of still having that them but integrating them within the overall story that season, the main characters have great chemistry and add lots of humor to the show. But one of the one major differences is that X-Files kinda has the whole mystery of you have no idea why any of this stuff is happening where Supernatural you know why shit is going down.
Just thought I'd add my two cents, if anyone was a fan of X-Files, I'd highly recommend to check out Supernatural, or Vice versa.
Also to Max or Patrick if they have seen the show what do you think about it?
