Watching series like Stargate and X-Files is like going through a military program.
Especially when you are a child in elementary school and just want to find an escape from this hell.
The irony is, that these series were actually about secret information disguised as a TV show and then showing military and secret agencies in action, while of course just playing them.
The fun part is, that Stargate even hat “Double Secret Production” at the end of some episodes.
Ironically because it actually was an open secret, while then it wasn’t depending on who you ask.
Since anyone with a thinking mind could have gotten behind it and create such stories or even cause them themselves.
So technically they weren’t lying when they printed “purely fictional” or whatever at the end of each show, since the script was fictional, but the setting wasn’t.
