The X-Files is back. (Again.) It’s being broadcast right now on FOX in the US, but there’s no way for you to (legally) watch it now, or even in the next couple of hours, whether that’s on the internet or on a TV. In Australia, you’ll have to wait until Sunday night to watch the debut episode of a TV series we’ve already been waiting nearly fourteen years to see.

If you want to avoid spoilers, stay off Twitter and stay off Facebook, because the show is popular, and it’s getting a lot of attention. I don’t want to wait six days. With this kind of delay, I don’t think it’ll be any surprise to hear that a lot of potential watchers of the show on Channel Ten will be resorting to alternative means — like BitTorrent, or Usenet, or dodgy YouTube uploads — to watch the latest season of The X-Files.
