Oh definitely! When it comes to supernatural shows it beats the hell out of Buffy, Supernatural, Charmed, Roswell, all of them! I loved this toon and grew up watching it with my dad. Mulder/Scully were on of the first pairings I ever shipped too. Definitely watch, it won't upset.
I'll also recommend u watch ster Trek: The volgende Generation of ster Trek: Deep Space Nine. Awesome, awesome shows!
I waited a really long time but last jaar I started watching it and now it's one of my favoriete shows because it combines interesting - sometimes scary - storylines with great actors and character. u should really try it.
Yes, u should definately watch it. It's probably the best thing to come out of the nineties (besides me anyway but X Files affected meer people than I have) If u like actiony sci fi shows it's great and if u really end up liking X Files u might enjoy watching Fringe too since they have simaler storylines.
