Let me ask you a question.
The invention of the wheel was before recorded history. And we still use them.
The US justice system is a couple hundred years old and it’s also being used.
And TCM still airs movies that were around probably before you were born.
Why? Because they’re good. Just because it’s from the 90s doesn’t make it any less good. People still watch Friends and Law & Order is still running. Hell, my mom watches Days Of Our Lives, and the first episode aired in 1965.
This year is the 20th anniversary of The X-Files, and the main stars of the show have been attending cons around the country.
I’m trying not to be rude but honestly? Why does it matter? If it bothers you, just don’t go in the XF tag. The thing that really gets me is that a lot of the more popular shows here on Tumblr, like Breaking Bad and Supernatural wouldn’t exist if The X-Files wasn’t around. Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad got his start from the X-Files. Many of the writers from Supernatual (not to mention it’s actors) got it’s start from The X-Files too.
And it was pointed out earlier that the main star of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston got the part because of his performance on The X-Files.
tl;dr: The X-Files was a very influential show that people still enjoy today because of Netflix. That is why people still post about it. If you think that is absurd, check out the vintage tag, and old Hollywood tag. That fandom has a very, very active following still. And Old Hollywood is from the 30s-60s.

What didn’t kill me made me feel like a piece of shit for months.
"This was one of my favorite things about directing The X-Files. I loved to do these tight two-shots with David and Gillian, with their faces that close together, that tight in the same frame of film. I always found something very fascinating about it. They just looked great together. It was fun to compose them in a tight frame of film."
