My favorite X-Files was the one with Peter Boyle in it, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose.  But any of the ones that were more on humor, less on grey aliens I really enjoyed.


Oh that was a fantastic one! And one of my favs too. These last few posts are making me remember how much I enjoyed The X-Files.

I thought about buying it on DVD, until I saw that it was $100 a season!   Shocked

I watched about half of it and gave up.  I was BORED.

It's like they took a random selection of X-files things and tried to turn it into a show, and forgot the concept of characterization or something.  yaaaaaawn.

I only watched half of it too. But I was laughing at them when I turned it off. The line delivery was so flat that not even my love of looking at Joshua Jackson could make me keep watching that show.

Ouch! Man, I haven't seen a season that high since Carnival. Sheesh! Can you get it cheaper buying it a few DVD's at a time instead of a whole season at a time? That's how I'm collecting Farscape.

I'd imagine it's more expensive that way in the long run, but I'm not sure.  I don't even know if you can buy only a few episodes at a time.

In the long run it certainly can be, but sometimes you can get a real steal on Ebay  Grin You're right though, I don't remember seeing The X-Files as anything other than season sets when I searched for them. But that was a while ago.

What?  I got all 9 seasons and the first movie for £75 ish.

Also, favourite episode?  Bad Blood from Season 5.  Another humorous one.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this.  I occasionally joke that the stuff that happens in the show is just what they tell people.  The show is actually about a closeted gay couple who pretend to be brothers. :p

I gotta start watching that show.

(more directed towards the Americans) Is it the same teen-soap opera crap that the CW (and WB and UPN before it) was known for?

If it's like Charmed or Buffy, then I would watch it.

Well, it loads up on the ANGST (boy, does it), but it isn't soap-opera-y.  It's more a horror-adventure show, related, in many ways, to the X-Files (many of the writers and production staff are X-Files alums).  It also does really good folklore research -- not like, always academically sound (which would be asking too much), but the show is MUCH more knowledgeable about folklore than others of its genre, including the X-Files.  The first-season episode "Bloody Mary" is pretty much the ONLY pop-culture text I have ever seen that dealt with folkloric variation in a way that was both accurate and made sense for the story.  (They're in a town where "Bloody Mary" is murdering people, and are wondering why there, since the story is so widespread, and nobody's ever come to harm before.  The answer:  an angry spirit, a woman murdered next to a mirror (which is now haunted and in that town), is *using* the narrative as a way to manifest itself.  Very Terry Pratchett!)

Also, the guys are really, really hot.  And their every interaction drips with homoerotic tension.  So, yes.  Cheesy

That (and the other things you said in that post) is all I needed.  I looked it up and the new season is starting up on Thursday.  Would I miss out on a lot if I started watching it now without watching it before?

You'd be kind of lost, but there's hope!  Super-wiki has all the info you need -- episode summaries, characters, folklore (not always 100% accurate), links to fanfic, etc.  While the show does have a mytharc, it isn't like the X-Files in that the mytharc dominates all -- there are tons of standalone episodes.  Because of the events of last season's finale, you'll want to have a basic idea of what went down before you watch on Thursday, but a bare-bones summary will do.  Cheesy

Ah Wikipedia, you may not be good for much, but now you're my new best friend Grin

And heck, I didn't start watching Charmed or Buffy from the very beginning and they are what you described and I was able to follow them.
