Mulder and Scully are back on the tube tonight for the next season of The X-Files

The X-Files
I'm excited for another foray into the unknown, but must The X-Files air at the same time as Riverdale? Let's not discuss DVR!
Before anyone suggests I DVR one of the shows, let me say I never did that when recording shows on video cassettes in the 80s. I usually sat there watching the show while it recorded. I know... I'm old school to the point of detriment.

But I don't intend on changing. I dig my retro ways! I don't want to stream TV and watch whatever I want whenever I want. That's no fun. I loved waiting another week to see what would happen to Steve Austin on The Six Million Dollar Man or to discover how Quincy would save the day from the ME's lab. And lets not forget that Fridays were for Miami Vice! Its just the way TV works.

OK, I do stream some TV and I adore my PS4, but I like structuring my life around things. If I can do anything anytime I want, I'd get lost in the big world and wouldn't know what to do. Re-runs will solve my X-Files / Riverdale dilema. See? Problem solved.

You'll have to excuse me while I go fire up my Atari 2600 for a few rounds of Asteroids and Space Invaders... maybe even some Missile Command. Old school is a pretty good deal. Put down your tablet and give it a try :)
