I recently watched all of The X-Files (yes, there was the dire new Season 10, but that wasn't a true extension of the series). I loved it when I was about 10 or 11 years old but never got beyond about Season 3. Watching it all now was an interesting experience. It was much worse than I remember it being and there was a lot of dire medicine/science. I remember thinking Muldur was great, but watching as a rational adult, I just wanted him to apply a vaguely scientific approach at least some of the time. I would love to see a serious X-Files equivalent where they go round debunking stuff.

Currently, I'm watching Seinfeld which just came onto Amazon Prime. I never saw it when it was first on. I don't think it's aged very well and I don't find it very funny. I would say that across the first two seasons, I probably laughed out loud once and smirked about three or four times. I'm still watching, but mostly because I'm a completionist when it comes to these things. Not sure I will actually manage to get through all the seasons though.

I also watch lots of YouTube via my Amazon Fire Stick and old TV shows come up in my YouTube recommended list quite often. I was getting lots of The West Wing clips at one time. Then I got a clip of Penn and Teller appearing on The West Wing and now my feed is filled with lots and lots of Penn and Teller. There's their newer stuff (like Fool Us) but I'm also getting the old early 90s shows they did. They did a couple of UK series when I was far too young to watch/appreciate what they did, but I do remember the title sequences, so think my older brother must have watched them. Of the old things I have been watching, Penn and Teller are the best.

I enjoy the old TV programs. I have on DVD, loads of them.

I look on Netflix, and on Viszio.

There was a show I watched as a kid in the lat 70s, Project U.F.O. (I knew it as Project Blue Book) that was like that. It was a couple Air Force guys investigating UFO sightings and such, but they were skeptical and often were able to explain it or uncover the hoax. I'm sure it's unwatchable at this point, but it's close to what you're thinking of. I see the wiki page even mentions its connection to X-Files...

Just finished watching the X-files on Netflix, before that it was Star Trek, Star Trek TNG, Doctor Who. I like to be able to watch in blocks when I want to with no commercials.
