Pentaxian: Crotchrocket Slim: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: LaurenAguilera: The Why Not Guy: So halfway through, does the scientist say "Mulder, are you suggesting that..." and then recap the plot up to that point?

Ha ha ha ha...

Also, it's always raining and dark and gloomy. They characters aren't as important if they aren't in their trench coats.

And somehow all filmed in Vancouver.

Formulaic as it was and dated as it is now, I still say stand alone episodes hold up and are always worth a viewing if you're looking to be entertained for a solid 40 some minutes (or was the run time in the 90s more like 50?).

Binge watching with my family and we find that the show still is effective. It helped that the show had a veritable murder's row of writing and directing talent. And in front of the camera there is a parade of "Hey, it's <Actor who became big later on>!" If I told someone that Giovanni Ribisi and Jack Black starred together in a story about sociopathic rural slackers they would think it was some independent movie not a X-Files episode.


Except that it was that role that made me HATE Giovanni Ribisi. in everything he ever did.

Bane of Broone: She was a redhead in a sci-fi show. I'm supposed to have a boner, right?


No, you're supposed to have a boner because her character was hot _and_ smrt.
