What I can write about is the other thing I watched yesterday. An episode of "X-Files" from season four entitled "Home." This has been popping up on my radar for years. I was never a huge "X-Files" fan. I know, shocking isn't it? If I could go back in time yadda, yadda, yadda. I think it is my natural aversion to "Sci-Fi" that kept me from the "X-Files." Stupid, I know, specially since I love "Star Trek" and "V" and all that shit (this is post dinner and I have had three glasses of wine so expect the swearing to go up while the "making sense" factor goes down.) The thing is, "X-Files" had alot of "horror" themed stand-alone episodes and "Home" is one of them.
Some boys find a corpse which happens to be a mutated baby. Major, in-bred mutation, as it turns out. Mulder and Scully encounter the "Peacock" family, a "Father/Brother-son/brother-son/brother" trio that keep their limbless mother tied up under the bed for "procreation." Yes, this aired on Network Television and yes, it is as disturbing as it sounds. Anyway, I ran across references to this episode in "The Book of Lists: Horror" and "Rue Morgue" magazine. And they was right! This is some fucked up shit. I didn't bother to watch any of the other episodes because they all looked "mythology" based and I am to old to get involved with another mythology. I am already invested in "Lost" and "Gossip Girl."
