Sylent Mari Says: There is some salty language below. If cussing isn’t your thing, you may want to skip this post. If you curse like a sailor, then you’re gonna have an awesome time watching the bloopers. If you’re like me and are wondering what Gillian Anderson sounds like (as her character Dana Scully) when she’s cussing up a storm, you won’t be disappointed.
Here’s a short detour from the continuation of my X-Files retrospective, which I started writing the next portion of last week – right before the show’s 21st anniversary, which just passed on September 10th. The next part deals with a summary of all nine seasons of the series, as well as summaries for the two major feature films that were released during and after the show’s initial run. I tried to keep it as spoiler-free as possible. Newer fans to the series will have a general idea of what the show’s about. If you’re into complex and massive conspiracy theories, then you’ll enjoy the heck out of this show. If you like stand-alone episodes involving a Monster of the Week, a term first used in describing the X-Files’ crazy monster episodes, you’ll also find some enjoyment with many of the MotW episodes from the series too.
With a show as serious as The X-Files, it’s really funny to see the cast just fall apart during some of the more intense scenes, as you are about to witness with the bloopers below. Each season has some great bloopers from all of the cast members, but the most memorable come from the stars of the show: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. In the first five seasons there are some bloopers that will have you laughing so hard, they may be pissing-in-your-pants worthy. And you can probably create a drinking game from every instance of the word “fuck” and “shit” that Duchovny, Anderson, and the rest of the cast utters throughout each blooper reel. Though you might end up dead, in a gutter somewhere, or crashed out in a stranger’s bed ‘cause copious amounts of alcohol will be consumed if you based your drinking game rules on curse words uttered by the actors.
Enjoy the following bloopers from all nine seasons of the show and the two feature films: X-Files: Fight the Future and X-Files: I Want to Believe. Things you will notice – Duchovny tends to be sarcastic, sometimes grumpy, and slightly diva-ish; Anderson has a hard time keeping a straight face and laughs frequently and probably holds the record for most “fuck’s!” said during a blooper reel.
Sylent Mari Recommends: The bloopers below are some of my favorites. But there are also many different sets of blooper reels for most of the seasons. You can check them out on Youtube, if you have a couple of hours to kill. Whenever you’re feeling down, they will definitely make you laugh hysterically and lift your spirits.
