This is perhaps my absolute favorite adult horror/sci-fi TV show out there because when I was younger and I made my gradual turn from Goosebumps, this show was the first series that I decided to try out. I cannot tell you how many episodes in this series that scared the shit out of me and how many of them left their mark in my head. It was this show that provided a gateway for me to crossover into R-rated horror films and gorier flicks. To describe the influence The X-Files had on me, I would need 10 or so pages alone… but what I will say is this: I credit this show for turning me into the demented, cryptozoologist that I am today. Thanks Chris Carter.

I agree with you 100%!!!

I started watching this show in middle school and was completely hooked ever since. Very twisted almost realism effect it sets into your mind. Chris Carter is a Genius!

He is and what makes this show so much better is that all of the stories and dialogue is based on factual scientific evidence. It's credible.

I watched pretty consistently from Season 1 (that episode with the flesh eating phoshorescent insects, I think) to sometime around the point when Duchovney left. At that point, I'm sure even he realized what a big, retarded clusterfuck the show's mythology had become.

Same here. It got weighted down in so much murky mythology that it ceased to entertain.

BTW, Freddy, you ever check out Millennium? I think, a much better so, dramatically.

I loved X-Files. I watched every episode until Duchovney left and then it turned to shit. For a long time though X-Files was right there with Star Trek TOS and Next Generation as my favorite TV shows. I always thought Gillian Anderson was smokin hot and always wanted them to get it on. So much sexual tension.

I was obsessed with The X-Files when it was on...but it became a chore the longer it went on. I slogged it out all the way through the abomination that was Season Nine and after that wretched series finale (and even worse movie) I felt like a chump. Those early seasons are still pretty damned good, but Chris Carter's hackery has actually hurt my enjoyment of the series as a whole.

Supernatural kicks its ass two ways from Sunday.

Most of the stand-alone, non-conspiracy epidisodes still hold up as awesome tv. That's where the series as a whole really shined. After the first movie, the conspiracy thread took a tumble so those episodes just became a distraction, but when a monster/freak-of-the-week showed up, it was a gem.
