The X Files’ Biggest Mystery: Why Nobody Locks Their Door Or Uses Lights

I decided I wasn’t a big enough nerd, so I started watching The X Files.  Of all the mysteries on the show, the biggest one to me is why none of the characters ever turn on a light or lock their door. It’s always Mulder and Scully walking into some dimly lit basement lab holding flashlights.  You would think after the first 20 times they would get one of those hats with the lights on the brim, because holding a flashlight and a gun is just inconvenient and, to be honest, pretty dangerous.  Who is the horrible electricity provider for these characters?  Is it that the electricity is out or that the characters just never think to turn on a light?  It’s not that hard to flip a switch.

Why don’t any of the characters-of-the-week ever lock their door?  They know some sort of man-eating creature/murderer/shape-shifter/alien is coming for them, why not just lock the door?   It always ends with the monster coming in the house and somehow Mulder and Scully find out and come to the house.  They just walk right in the front door every time.  It’s never locked.  Once they’re in the house, they go to the bedroom where the homeowner and monster are.  The bedroom door is locked or forced shut and, of course, the electricity is cut and it’s pitch dark.  Of all the doors they leave wide open, why is the only one they lock their bedroom where the monster will devour them?

I understand that the lights being left off are supposed to make it more creepy and suspenseful but come on, we know Mulder and Scully aren’t going to die, there’s still six seasons left (I’m on Season 3 now).  Besides these ridiculous complaints, It’s a pretty awesome show.
