X-Files

Anyone fans? I just finished the entire series (it's been a long journey). I'm kind of sad that it's no longer on TV.

    Loved the first 3 or 4 seasons. Beyond that, it got a little too into the conspiracy theory stuff.

    Favorite series!!! I love it. Yeah I was a bit on the edge after season 7, I mean season 8 had some cool stand a lone episodes, though the conspiracy got a bit screwy. The super soldiers line I didn't enjoy too much. btw, rumor is there is going to be another movie finishing the prophecy on the 2012 colonization. I hope it gets filmed. I was bummed when the 2nd movie came out and didn't follow the story.

    The series got pretty intense at around the 7th season. I'm just glad I never watched it when it was on TV. I would've gone crazy waiting for new episodes to come out every week.

    Somewhat related. Scully is hot.

    In the process of rewatching the whole series... for the 5th time. One of my favorite TV series.

    X-files was great...If you get the Chiller channel, they're showing it and also the Millennium series.

    Millenium was another great series!
    Picked up the boxset a few years back.

    wow. I've watched it probably 4 times over the years. It's a long series.

    Anyone have a favorite episode? I have a few, like the one when Mulder gets warped to an alternate reality through the Bermuda Triangle.

    I like the one where mulder switches bodies with that guy from Area 51, it was a two part episode. Oh, and the one where he finds out what happened to his sister.

    Same here, my two favorite episodes are:

    Somehow, Satan Stood Behind Me

    The Curse of Frank Black

    Have you joined the "Back to Frank Black" campaign? It's an effort to get a movie made, so far Lance has said he's interested, and so has Carter.

    True...but the real one...you know the one where he sees the ghosts of his sister and a whole bunch of other little kids? I can't remember the title, but it was a very good episode...and I'm not talking about the clones..etc....

    back to frank black

    Ok, I managed to find the episode. It was called "Closure", and here is an episode summary:


    Episode Summary
    Add/Edit

    After arresting the murderer of Amber-Lynn LaPierre and discovering a mass gravesite containing the bodies of dozens of missing children, a man comes to Mulder and claims to have had visions of other victims who aren't buried at the site. Despite Scully's objections, he takes Mulder on a journey which reveals what truly happened to his sister.
    Probably my #2 favorite.

    I was a faithful weekly watcher and loved the show. i totally miss it and hope that there is another movie. its still hard for me to see Duchovny in any other role and not think of Mulder. I loved the Conspiracy episodes and that subplot was the whole reason I watched the show.

    When I was in highschool I would spend summer nights watching the X files on my 13 inch TV until I was sufficantly freaked out then tried to go to bed. With that said my wife and I are currently chewing through season 2.

    Wow, haven't thought about X-Files in a while. In college, my roommate taped every season as the episodes aired and I used to make fun of him. Then, since I skipped a lot of class and drank a shitton of beer, I had some time on my hands. I watched the first episode and then starting plowing through them till I had watched every episode of every season. Loved it.

    I watch Fringe now and really liked the first season...it was cool like X-Files. Season two of Fringe is kinda suckin.

    X-Files is awesome and I still love watching reruns. Have seen and owned them all on dvd. If you like X-Files you will probably like Fringe. Season 2 of FRINGE is AWESOME Luko you knucklehead ;P

    yeah it was one of my favs. I have too many episodes I really liked. I loved the mythology to the show. Those episodes are in my favorite list. I did sort of get dis-engaged with it after season 7. As for a stand-alone episode I liked gamer (I think that's the name) where mulder goes into a video game.

    hope you don't mind if I jump in...I LOVED the first few seasons of the show, then I kinda drifted from it, went to college and what not... I think I actually have the first few seasons on VHS somewhere...

    my favorite episode was the one in the northwest when the logging crew disappeared... they were cutting down these old trees and the little green bugs came out...they'd basically come out at night and eat anything that that wasn't in the light... I remember Milder and Scully standing in the light of a dying light bulb waiting for sunrise... was a great episode...

    i didn't realize they were on netflix instant... might have to pull that one up...
