There will be a 15 minute break between each episode. We encourage everyone that will be joining this marathon, whether they do join the chat or not, to check into Get Glue and let them know you're watching The X-Files.
This is an activity associated with The X-Files 20th Anniversary Tweet-A-Thon, so we will be tweeting trivia, information and easter eggs while each episode plays. While the marathon finishes after the screening of the pilot is done, users can always continue the viewings if desired.
See you guys tomorrow!
Many philes have suggested many activities to be held during what aims to be a fantastic celebration and there's a lot to be done!
We'll begin by doing a Global X-Files Viewing Marathon & Skype Files; for the duration of the Tweet-A-Thon, philes can coordinate with their fellow philes to run their own marathons or join our Skype Files session where will be watching a selection of X-Files episodes. All through the day, we will be sharing trivia about the episodes selected for our proposed playlist. Instructions will be posted on our website on the morning of Sunday Sept. 8th.
Even if you can't join our viewing marathon, we will be trading experiences and stories from fans, cast and crew alike, as part of our walk down memory lane! We'll share "behind the scenes" information and trivia along with all the spontaneous experiences from our fellow phile tweeters!
As an added activity, we will be tracking our viewing marathon via Get Glue and we invite you to do so as well. Download the application or access via their website and check in every time you tune into a different episode. The more you check in to Get Glue when you watch, the more attention we'll bring to our celebration!
The X-Files: Volume Two goes on sale at noon on Sept. 10th; we'll accompany you while you rush over to La-La Land Records and snag your copy... that is, if you weren't one of the lucky five that will be selected from our sweepstakes!
Expect a few other things to come in during the day as well! Stay tuned to XFN's Twitter feed and facebook for up to the minute information!
On September 10th, 1993 The X-Files premiered at 9pm eastern on the Fox Network and kicked off a wild and unimaginably successful journey that would turn it into a worldwide phenomenon. The impact of that day on popular culture has not been matched by a television show since. The X-Files paved the way for theatrical storytelling on the silver screen and created an environment where stories that push the envelope could not only start but also thrive on television. It became the golden standard, and we miss it terribly.
In celebration of all The X-Files is and was, we're teaming up with our friends at The X-Files 3 in 2012 on Facebook, Aussie X-Files Fans on Facebook, Beyond The Sea IT, X-Files Memories, Area 42, Expedientes X ES, Grupo The X-FIles Chile, Pinoy X-Philes and many other local communities, for an ambitious new Tweet-A-Thon. This also serves as an open invitation for all other fan communities across the web to join us on this historic day because no one gets there alone. Just say the word and your group will be added to the list of party goers!
Join us on Tuesday, September 10th to show your love for what brought us all together as fans, friends, and family. It will be a day of reminiscing, celebrating, and showing 20th Century Fox that their 20-year fanbase, like the show, has become a worldwide phenomenon.
The Tweet-A-Thon will run from the moment the first time zone (New Zealand) hits midnight on September 10th until the last time zone (Hawaii) hits midnight on September 11th. So wherever you are in the world, join us in tweeting for The X-Files 20th Anniversary! You can also tweet directly to Fox (@20thcenturyfox), too. Check out the guidelines after the jump to help us make the biggest impact possible.
