Classic X-Files: I Want To Believe

28 July 2008 Uncategorized

This officially wraps up my loooong series of X-Files related posts. I realize that the X-Files is out of the purview of this blog. However, as my favorite television show, and a show that has always made me think, I felt it appropriate to go ahead and do all of these posts. So, I’m glad […]

Classic X-Files: Season 9

24 July 2008 Uncategorized

If you’ve come this far, congratulations. Unfortunately, you won’t be richly rewarded for your efforts. Season 9 is not very good. Honestly, I own the DVDs just for the sake of completeness. As I’ve said before, I like Doggett and Reyes, but everything going on around them just feels muddled. It might have been better […]

Classic X-Files: Season 8

22 July 2008 Uncategorized

With David Duchovny mostly out of the picture, season 8 proved to be a significant challenge. For the most part, it was a difficult adjustment trying to bring Doggett in as some sort of replacement for Mulder (though, really, Doggett is a skeptic — so, he’s replacing what Scully used to be). Tough transition, but […]

Classic X-Files: Season 7

19 July 2008 Uncategorized

Season 7 opens with a bang and ends with a bang. In between, well, it’s hit and miss. Overall, it’s weaker than season 6, but there are some very strong episodes. Here are the ones that I suggest you check out: 7abx03: The Sixth Extinction (II) With Mulder laid up in a hospital, conscious but […]

Classic X-Files: Season 6

18 July 2008 Uncategorized

For me, Season 6 is one of the stronger seasons of the X-Files. However, it is in the stand-alone (aka “Monster of the Week”) episodes that this season really shines for me. So many of them are full of variety, humor, and light-heartedness. While, at the same time, some are just plain creepy. 6abx01: The […]

Classic X-Files: Fight the Future

16 July 2008 Uncategorized

After the fifth season, the powers that be decided that they could cash in on the X-Files franchise by creating a movie. Fortunately, the movie ties in with the overarching conspiracy/mythology plot. Unfortunately, there are some retreads so that the newbies can get up to speed. I understand that. But I don’t care. I’m a […]

Classic X-Files: Season 5

16 July 2008 Uncategorized

As I’ve been going through these episodes, I’ve realized that I’m counting WAY too many as “essential.” So, I’ve decided that I will cut down on this. ONLY the truly great or truly important episodes make this list from now. Now, that means that I’m having to cut out some of my very favorite episodes. […]

Classic X-Files: Season 4

13 July 2008 Uncategorized

Okay — I just finished up my review of season 4. It’s stronger than I remembered it, which is really good. Not only that, but the production value and quality of the dialogue is still on the way up. While I like the stories from season 2 a lot better, I must say that season […]

Classic X-Files: Season 3

3 July 2008 Uncategorized

The third season is probably not as good as the second, especially in terms of writing. However, __The X-Files__ budget continued to grow; therefore, the third season gives many great episodes and with very high production quality. Here are my favorites: 3×01: The Blessing Way (II) With Mulder’s life hanging in the balance, Scully is […]

Classic X-Files: Season 2

26 June 2008 Uncategorized

The second season of the X-Files really starts to pick up. Character development is excellent, and the story lines are strong. Season 2 is so strong, in fact, that I’m putting more than half of the episodes in the “must see”. 2×01: Little Green Men Season 2 opens on a good foot. With Mulder and […]
