8 Times The First X-Files Teaser Blew Our Minds In Just 15 Seconds

I want to believe... that I can keep it together until this show comes back.

The first teaser trailer for the new "X-Files" is a lot like an alien abduction: It's dark and ominous, yet hauntingly familiar, and it's over before you even knew it began... and then you're waking up naked in a cornfield miles from home with no memory of how you got there, and nobody believes you.

Or maybe that's just me.

Either way, this teensy glimpse of the long-awaited reboot aired last night (July 16) during FOX's "Wayward Pines," and it used every one of its 15 seconds to blow our freakin' minds. Here are your first eight moments of full-on "X-Files" fever.

  1. Smoke! Wreckage! ...Spaceship?!
  2. Extra-terrestrial cleanup crew, reporting for duty.
  3. Who put this executive leather chair into someone's Warehouse of Murder?

    Ten bucks says that furniture smells like three decades' worth of cigarettes, if you know what I'm saying.

  4. Probably not a tetanus shot.
  5. Um, excuse me, but WHAT ARE YOU DOING. That is a SACRED OBJECT.
  6. And speaking of sacred objects: It's Mulder!
  7. And Scully!!!
  8. And we only have to wait til January 2016 to see them together again.

    Brb, screaming with pure, raw excitement for the next six months.
