Re-discovering the X-Files  
I'm currently re-watching the X-Files, together with Cavendish, who unlike me, back in the days, never had watched them as a whole but had only caught two or three individual episodes instead.

The biggest surprise so far: How much about this show I had actually forgotten during the past fifteen years plus in which I had purposely stayed away from it. Episode plotlines, characterisation details. Even the fact that Mitch Pileggi's Walter Skinner doesn't appear until the end of the first season, with his part becoming increasingly bigger during the second one.

So, throughout the early episodes, whenever there was a scene involving Mulder's FBI superiors and the CSM, I kept wondering "Where on Earth is Skinner?"...

Pretty weird, especially since my show/character remembering skills are usually quite reliable. ;)
