I am currently re-watching all my X-File DVDs

and i love the X-files,some episodes are a little corny,while others are quite brilliant


Squeeze and its 'sequel' Tooms from season 1,where Victor Tooms can squeeze into the smallest of spaces and enter his victims homes to extract their liver


how about Triangle from Season 6,where Mulder finds a lost cruise liner in the Bermuda Triangle and gets caught up on the ship in the 1940s with all the people he knows playing out certain roles?


I have also noticed a few of the episodes,are influenced by movies....take Ice again from season 1,where Mulder and Scully are trapped in a Artic Research base with 4 others(and a dog),and one of them have contracted a 'worm' that makes them paranoid and violent ...which was very much like John Carpenter's The Thing


one my favourites is called Død Kalm,where Mulder and Scully are stuck on another Ship in the Norwegian sea,and they find they are prematurely ageing at an incredible rate and age decades within a few hours


so which is your favourite episode?

that one where the killer was hunting down people who insisted on using extra U's in words  Tongue

I'm not sure I have a favorite, I didn't see the whole series and none of them stick out.  I do have it in my Nextflix instant queue but I have so many other TV series in there too that I want to watch more so it's going to be a while.  bump this thread in 2013 and I may have an answer  icon_lol

Easy.  Home.  It was the only episode of the X-Files that was banned from rebroadcast and is mentioned in a few lists of the scariest tv episodes of all time.

There's so many...

One scene I vividly remember, but can't remember the episode its from, is where Scully and Mulder are investigating a local nurse being accused for being a witch, and as they are outside her house, and no-one answers their knocking, Mulder see's a broom besides the door, and says "Probable cause" and opens the door :-D

sounds like 'Sanguinarium'...the liposuction scene is what stands out for me in that episode(the Doctor doing the liposuction is possessed i think) eek

That one obviously got a lot of attention here in Norway, to the point of having the newspapers hype it before it was shown.

I didn't like it. The portrayal of Norway was so hilariously bad that it pulled me straight out of the story and made me unable to take it seriously. It was next to impossible for a Norwegian to understand what they were saying (it was clearly just Americans reading Norwegian lines that they had no idea how to pronounce), there were Norwegian flags everywhere (okay, I know this is a common thing in the US, but except for flag poles, you'd be hard pressed to find our flags outside of tourist stands), and nothing but gloomy, old fishermen in what seemed like medieval taverns. It was fascinating in a "this is what the rest of the world thinks we are" kind of way, but that didn't really help. slywink

And to answer the original question: My favorite is Bad Blood. It had me hooked and laughing from the moment the fake teeth came off in the intro.

I was a big X Files fan and there were so many great episodes.  The the ones that stand out the most have been mentioned here like Clyde Bruckman.   The two Eugene Tooms episodes were fantastic and definitely on my short list.   When I first saw Home, I couldnt believe it was actually allowed to air.  Ive seen feature horror films that were far less intense.  Another entertaining episode starred Ed Asner and Lily Tomlin as the ghosts of two star-crossed lovers who have a unique christmas in store for Mulder and Scully.  The Jose Chung stuff was fun as well.   The Xfiles was a great show but when they lost Mulder, it kinda limped along with Dogget after that but never regained its mojo.

For me its honestly just about any epsiode from season 3 and 4. When I finally watched all 9 seasons uninterupted 2 years ago, I marvelled at how the episodes from 3 and 4 were consistently good from one to the next. Out of those 2 seasons I'd have to agree with a few others that 'Home' was probably the best episode. One of my favorites though is 'Deep Throat' from season 1 - not because it was a great episode -it was really quite mediocre- but because Seth Green played a young stoner and his performance really stood out. I think for writing, my favorite stories were those witten by James Wong with Glenn Morgan or Chris Carter witg Frank Spotnitz

IMO the series went into the crapper after season 5 when it left Vancouver. Am I being biased as a Vancouverite - possibly, but I've since read similar opinions in many threads and blogs all accross the Internet. BTW I'm in awe at the excellent taste of those who've posted so far - all but a few epsisodes hasn't been from seasons 1-5 and most have been from 3 and 4. slywink

I consider the entire run of the series as my favorite. smile 
   
I loved every minute and go back through the entire series every couple years or so.
   
I started trying to list my top favorites, but my list kept growing and growing. smile
   
However, I think Paper Clip was the episode that captured the essence of the show for me.

i just watched the episode Beyond the Sea,Scully's father dies,and Brad Dourif is a psychic on death row saying he knows where two current kidnapped kids are,great stuff from him....Mulder,this time is the sceptic and doesn't believe Boggs(Dourif)is psychic and is taking advantage and is trying to get out of death row,while Scully keeps seeing her dead father everywhere,so she is the believer this time


(he always seems to get a tear to his eye when needed,like he does as Wormtongue in LOTR Tongue)

I was a Brad Dourif fan from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest to any of David Lynch's Films. He has a way of play characters that just slightly off.

Favorite episodes are Home, Soft Light, and The Host (sewer monster or flukeman).

Oh man, that legless homeless guy creeped the fuck out of me when I watched the episode.

By the way X-Files experts, I went through every episode of the X-Files up to a certain season. I couldn't remember which season I stopped at, but the last episode was when Mulder was up in the north pole, and Scully was at HQ, telling the suits that Mulder was indeed missing a screw in his head, and that he needs help. It was in a dark room, I remember.

So what season was that?

i haven't seen the last 3 seasons for years and only just bought them on DVD,which has got me starting to watch them all again from the beginning(just started season 2)..what you say about Scully is familiar,as she has done something like that a few times..but its the North Pole for Mulder i can't place(i keep on thinking about the Antarctica scenes of the first movie)

when i come across it i will let you know

My favorites - and in the same order! What made XFiles such a memorable show for me was, in part, so many episodes being high caliber. Ultimately, the show reached an almost pointless destination but the trip alone was worth it.

Most of my favorites have been listed but I'd like to also add Darkness Falls (killer bugs in a forest in Washington), Small Potatoes (Eddie Van Blundht can change his form to appear as anybody), Humbug (circus freak episode), and Dreamland I & II ("You know, Morris, most men when they have a mid-life crisis they go out and buy themselves a sports car. They don't run around calling themselves Fox.").

the thing about the X-Files,is that as a whole it has a large story(Mulders sister,Deep Throat,Cancer Man etc),but it also has episodes classed on their own and nothing to do with the main story,and not many shows do that,they either have the story as a whole(say like The Event)or as individual stories(i wanna say like CSI,but i have never watched that),not many series have both

I am coming towards the end of season 2 now,and the 'clones' have started to play a major part,but there has also been some fun episodes that i had forgotten all about(substitute teacher being the Devil after kids summoned it up by accident or Firewalker-a plant thing grows inside of people and 'sprouts' out of their necks)

finished Season 5,watched the first movie and now on Season 6 and there are some pretty great episodes in Season 6 that i had forgotten

mainly the episode heloder mentioned, Mulder swapping bodies with Michael Mckean in Dreamlands I+II




and also Terms of Endearment,with Bruce Campbell who is a Demon and is knocking up women so that he can have a 'normal' looking child,but they keep being born as Little Demons




I am only 6 or 7 episodes in to season 6 but its been a good season up to now

oh and as much as i hate Spender,i really hate Mimi Rogers as well(who plays Mulders past love interest and partner Diana Fowler)...although i think i am supposed to icon_biggrin

finished watching Season 6 which was a nice surprise,as because they moved away from Canada filming i was expecting not to like the season as much but i liked it just as much as past season

David Duchovny written and directed The Unnatural,where a Alien disguised himself as a Black Baseball player in the 40s,just so he can play Baseball,it was one of my favourite episodes as i really enjoyed it,and it didn't really feature Mulder and Scully that much


Season 7 wasn't nearly as good as Season 6 IMO,it had some good individual episodes

Hungry


The Amazing Maleeni was a fun episode,as was X-Cops...the less said about First Person Shooter is probably for the best



Season 8 was much more interesting,and i liked how they dealt with Mulder not being the main man,although for the last half of the season he is pretty much in each episode one way or another,but the episodes were pretty good as well


there was an episode called Roadrunners which dealt with that freaky middle America quiet town whose few occupants were part of a cult and they end up sticking their 'new God' into Scully's back


and yeah that Badlaa episode people mentioned where the little guy on a skateboard hides up people's butt's was a bit freaky

but the last half dozen or so episodes of season 8 have been great

just got the last season to go and then the second film



oh and by the way 20th Century Fox are dicks for putting a montage before the DVD menu pops up and spoils half the stuff in the season

Spoiler for Hiden:
in the montage(at the beginning of each disc menu),it showed Krytek getting shot in the head which was what happened in the last 5 minutes of the season,and as a menu picture it showed Mulder and Scully with Scully's baby

thanks for spoiling that Fox you pricks!!

Yeah, stuff like that is really annoying. You'd think the people who design those menus have no attachment to the material at all. Another good example is in the movie The Descent, where the DVD menus

They also did this with season 3 of Dexter,  the montage had some serious later season spoilers

Battlestar did that too.  I was rewatching it with my dad (who hadn't seen it)  and had to get him to look away while the episode started.  Gave away some major plot points Roll Eyes

This thread got me into rewatching XFiles (hadn't seen then since original broadcasts) and I'm loving it as much as I did before.  Its funny to see some of the guest actors that they have on and where they are now.

I'm on season three and just finished 'Syzygy' where a rather chubby Ryan Reynolds had himself killed off by some devil bitches in the opener.  thumbsup  Not to mention D.P.O. with both Jack Black and Giovanni Ribisi.

Oh yeah, some favourites so far are, Humbug, Clyde Bruckmans Final Repose, Oubliette War of the Coprphages and the one with the glowing insects from season 1.

Terry O' Quinn(Locke from Lost)appears no less than 3 times(including the first movie)as 3 separate people,his last showing is in the last season,the last season also has Alan Dale(Penny's Dad in Lost,he was also in Ugly Betty i think) and Michael Emerson(who played Ben in Lost)...there are other Lost actors over the seasons in The X files,but those three are the best known i think


finished with The X files now,and season 9 was a big disappointment,the end was terrible,i am not sure if they expected to have a season 10 or what but it ended with a lot of questions
Spoiler for Hiden:
mainly Mulder was on the run from the FBI after breaking out of prison when he had been convicted of murder and receiving the death penalty

The Super Soldier project was in full effect with Alan Dale as a Super Soldier who was part of Mulders Trial

in fact Mulders Trial was all a bit lame as it just acted as a 9 season recap

Alien invasion is to start December 22nd 2012...i guess that is still on the cards then icon_confused

they finally killed off,properly,i mean.. Cancer Man/Cigarette Smoking Man

Mulder only features in the last two episodes of this season,and therfor Scully becomes a fifth(or third)wheel,seeming to be whenever Dogget and Reyes want an autopsy they call in Scully

FWIW- i really liked both Robert Patrick as Doggett and Annabeth Gish as Reyes

some highlight episodes
Jump The Shark where they killed off
Spoiler for Hiden:
The Lone Gunmen

Improbable was a fun episode with Burt Reynolds


Sunshine Days Michael Emerson could use his Psychic powers to create an illusion in front of everybody's eyes,so he transformed his house to The Brady Bunch house

and Scary Monsters where a kids imagination causes weird bugs to come out at night and multiply when you shoot one

then i watched the Second X-Files movie(The X Files:I Want To Believe) which was good to see everyone again(well,Mulder,Scully and Skinner),but the story didn't have an impact for a movie like the first film did,this seemed more like an episode,with Billy Connelly being a Paedophile Psychic Priest(hey PPP!!,LOL)...at least the movie did answer something from the end of season 9
Spoiler for Hiden:
mainly Mulder getting 'let off' for his Murder conviction

and half way through the end credits it showed
Spoiler for Hiden:
Mulder and Scully in swimwear rowing a boat in the sea near a small tropical island


Overall The X-Files is still one of the best series out there,which unfortunately ended with a wimper rather than a bang


but still,bring on The X-Files 3rd Movie  paranoid (it's rumoured anyway)

My two favorites were The Unnatural (which showed off such a pure love of baseball and of life itself that it should be required viewing for all would be tv writers) and Triangle which I consider one of the best episodes of anything ever.
