America's favorite paranormal detectives returned to TV earlier this year, but just in case you missed both the reboot and the original series, Mashable gave The X-Files their TL;DW treatment. Short for "too long; didn't watch," this short animated video summarizes the basic gist of the show's 208 episodes. Even if you have seen it, the video's commentary will delight the most rabid of Mulder and Scully buffs.

You'd think after at least one hundred times of Mulder being right and the FBI being wrong, the FBI would finally accept it and say, "damn, guess ghouls and aliens are real, huh?" The X-Files clearly believes in paranormal phenomena and conspiracy theories more than it believes in the competency of federal U.S. law enforcement.

Have you seen The X-Files?
