I agree with those who felt the standalone episodes were better. The whole conspiracy arc just got way way too convoluted as time went on. Loved the show the first five seasons and then it started to go downhill when they moved location shooting from Vancouver to L.A.. Really think they should have ended the series with the Fight the Future film and continued with film sequels back then. It seems a bit late now to be revisiting it.

Just more proof that Hollywood has run out of ideas.

I too agree that I think that they waited a bit  too late to do another movie.  It isn't like the 1st movie set the world on fire anyway as it just appealed to hardcore fans of the show at that point and didn't cross over like they hoped it would.

BTW, here's another choice Gillian Anderson pic from the past:

I never really got into it much when it was on the air, but have started watching it in reruns on Sci-Fi channel when I'm home. 

Oddly enough I watched the Lone Gunmen spinoff show despite not actually being overly familiar with the X-Files and quite enjoyed that. Buggedout

Yes, I also enjoyed the X-Files.  I watched it every week on its first run on the Fox network.  I loved the drama on the show.  But most of all, I loved nitpicking the show for its extreme scientific and reality flaws  TeddyR  I remember that one episode that opened with the police chasing that couple who were speeding down a desert highway.  They caught them.  The woman kept banging her head on the window and FOR NO REASON AT ALL, her head exploded.  I once wrote a script for the XFiles,  Unfortunately, I never heard back from them Bluesad

I like this show and I want to bring it up on the board.
Man, it's good.

I loved the conspiracy arc, but a couple of standalone shows stand out in my memory as favorites. Two that were kind of tongue-in-cheek. In one, there's an evil Homeowner Association that sics a demon on non-compliant residents. I loved Mulder putting out pink flamingos and basketball hoops to try to get their attention. In another, a body-snatcher takes Mulder's body and sees how he lives ("Doesn't this guy have a bed?").

Sorry, Doggett. Your namesake is not one of my favorite characters. I don't have much of an impression of him, actually. I didn't see too many shows in the last couple of seasons. But I think Skinner may actually be about my favorite characters, with Scully a close second. I loved Mulder's quirkiness, but he could kind of wear on you after awhile.

The X Files is one of the few tv shows that could actually scare you as a kid, the same as a late night horror movie would. I love all the seasons, but my favorite is the first five seasons, they had some the most entertaining episodes. A few of the great episodes: Sqeeze,The Jersey Devil,Shadows,Ice(Ripoff of The Thing, but that makes it even more cooler),Fire,Little Green Men,Duane Barry.

The only thing I didnt necessary like about the show is that they were trying to close down the x files early on into the show. I guess they were trying to bring excitment to the table, but trying to shut it down was just a mad move for the writers.Anyway great show.

I have to mention one of the great characters, The Cigarate Man. The guy doesnt even have to say a single word and he's scary.
