It’s hard to imagine two more different TV series than the X – Files and the Children in the Hall. It was one series about the absurd and impossible phenomenon in the world and the other about X-Files. But they had one thing in common: theories about the extraterrestrial world. And strange as it may sound, The Kids in the Hall had perhaps the most credible idea.
For 11 seasons, the X-Files followed the FBI’s secret department while investigating the strange things ordinary agents would not hit with a 3-foot rod. The series focused primarily on Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully, though other actors appear from time to time. Mulder was concerned about the evidence that extraterrestrial life existed and that the government was trying to cover it up due to his sister’s kidnapping at a young age.
It turned out that Mulder was right in almost everything. The foreigners were genuine; the government was obsolete, and their kidnapped sister was with their coalition government. It was a whole. But as the series progressed, the whole story became more and more complex and challenging to follow. As unfamiliar as it may appear to see a show with so many random monsters, it set out to be a tiny too big.
Conversely, Kids in the Hall certainly did not focus on extraterrestrial life arriving on Earth. But the band used the concept for some comic sketches in their five seasons. The great thing about this funny sketch was that it was very un-taboo, so it was discreet enough for her to have fun with aliens. But let The Kids in the Hall use a season one sketch to break the theory more convincingly than anything the X-Files have ever developed.
In Season 1, Episode 5, a sketch offered a simple theory: aliens were boring. Several abductees were interviewed during the drawing, all of whom told a similar strange story. All the aliens were bald, had bad combinations, tobacco pipes, and wore identical cardigans. During the kidnappings, they watched TV incessantly and barely spoke to each other, let alone the people who were forcibly taken to their ship.
The X-Files have spread rumors that a strange coalition of infamous humans and aliens has conspired against the world throughout his life. For many viewers, the story has become too complex to follow or accept. What The Kids in the Hall suggested was much simpler and easier to remember as a theory of the extraterrestrial world. There are very few credible stories about the abductions of space in particular. The bigger and more decorated they are, the harder it is to get them. So honestly, the fact that aliens are boring makes a lot more sense.
