Zombie DJ: I liked Doggett.

Doggett was a good replacement. He added the skeptic back to the show, because after the shiat Scully had seen over the years she could no longer believably be the skeptic.

And some of the best shows of seasons 8 and 9 were Doggett-centric

And Scully has no acquired memory.

Mulder: "I think it's a yeti."
Scully: "Mulder there's no such thing."
Mulder: *SMACK* "We go through this every Goddamned week!"

You know, there are worse ways to go, but I can't think of a more undignified way than autoerotic asphyxiation.

Why are you telling me this?

I'd give her an advancement, if ya know what I mean.

/And I think you do

Really look at that picture. I mean really look. She looks like she's either three sheets to the wind or has had a stroke.

Article is kinda dumb. They weren't bad Agents at all.

8: Secrecy: is only important if you go undercover. They were trying to reveal big Govt secrets, not keep them covered up, that requires some attention.

7 Travel Budget: Seriously? They are the only people able and willing to deal with the slimy thing killing people and you want to begrudge them a few nights in a cheap motel and a rental car?

6 and 5 Local LE dealings and no calls for backup: Both the same issue really, Local LE and even other FBI field offices don't like them or want to help because they don't believe their crackpot theories so they have to go without them.

4 Constant suspensions: Duh, they are working against a small Cabal within the Bureau higher-ups, naturally they were going to get reigned in from time to time

3 No magic powers: Not the focus of the show, the few times when it was supposed to be magic there was usually a dark price for it and some ambiguity. Mostly it was aliens and mutants.

2 Lots of trouble: Goes back to the Local LE and backup issue, they are marginalized so they are left more vulnerable to getting in trouble.

1 Often don't solve cases: Their cases are sometimes unexplainable and they are dealing with forces way bigger than themselves. Also practically speaking the show outlived it's premise and the writers kept changing the subject before resolving anything. It's one of the things that makes Supernatural so much better of a show. They give up the big reveal every season (or every other season) and have it lead to the next big bad. Sure the show hasn't ever lived up to the glory days of beating Satan the last few years but you know it's stories do go somewhere.

And some more, because she's worth it.  (Also, if you haven't seen the BBC series "The Fall," do so, it's good and she's great in it.)

Seriously people, talking about the show when we could be sharing pictures of Gillian Anderson, hands down one of the hottest women on TV?  Philistines.

Coming up next 10 Reasons Cheers was a bad bar and 11 reasons why Hawkeye was an awful doctor.  After a show has been off the air for a decade or more it is time to give it a break you're not insightful you're recycling old material.

"The X-Files' Fox Mulder and Dana Scully weren't the sort of agents you'd really recommend for career advancement."

Wasn't that kind of the point? They spent the whole show in the basement office being managements punching bags. The X-Files were a dead end.

Scully was the kind of agent you recommend for career advancement, but had the unfortunate luck to have that advancement be made contingent upon her discrediting Mulder enough that the bureau could fire him. So, when she realized his work was more important than career advancement, she stopped being that kind of person.
