i’m making a list of my favorite x-files episodes! this is just for fun and i’ll probably add to it as i keep watching, but here we go.
off the top of my head, and in order of air date:
S01E05 | the jersey devil
"Keep it up, Mulder, and I’ll hurt you like that beast woman." — Scully
S01E08 | ice
What’s really scary: alien parasites, or the paranoia soup that brews out of human fear and distrust and close confinement? …Probably both.
S01E17 | E.B.E.
A twisty, turny, unpredictable chase for the truth, always two steps ahead of you.
S02E01 | little green men
In what feels like a spot-on metaphor for depression, Agent Mulder deals with the close of the X Files project by struggling with his own conviction in the existence of the paranormal—and searching for something that will give him hope again.
S02E07 | 3
The episode where Mulder finally gets to explore his vampire kink. No, really.
S03E04 | clyde bruckman’s final repose
The agents meet a clairvoyant old man who doesn’t think his gift is as cool as Mulder thinks it is.
S03E12 | war of the coprophages
There’s a cockroach plague. Mulder hates insects.
…augh, there are so many more, but this is what happened when i tried to pick one. this is a wip. whatever.
