The X-Files is one of the most iconic sci-fi shows ever. There are over 200 episodes, two movies, and the new revival series. While you’ve heard about the show for years, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of episodes to catch up on.
Stop your worrying! Colleen Evanson has made Vines of every episode of the show, giving you a quick 6-second version of what happens. She calls it The X-Files Abridged and uses character dolls, funny accents, and clever backgrounds to re-create the 6-second episodes. You might not feel the emotional impact of the entire 9 seasons but you’ll get the basic plot points and probably have a laugh while watching. Below are five of my favorites ranging from stand-alone episodes to plenty of Mulder’s alien conspiracies.
“Pilot” – 1×01
“F. Emasculata” – 2×22
“Triangle” – 6×03
“First Person Shooter” – 7×13
“Essence” – 8×20
Make sure to check out all of the episodes of The X-Files Abridged on Vine to catch up with the series in a hurry or, watch all of the Vines strung together on YouTube. Watch time fly by as you watch all 9 season of The X-Files in about 25 minutes. Enjoy!
