X is for The X-Files - A to Z Challenge

You just knew I was going to do this!

I have chosen 10 of my favorite episodes, only ten, and listed them in season order.

I have included a link for episode descriptions, from Red Wolf, so you can read about them, if you like.

Heather's Top Ten X-Files Episodes 

1. The X-Files: Pilot - Season 1
Reason: The beginning is a great place to start.

2. Shapes - S.1
Reason: An elderly Native American man calls Mulder Sneaky Fox for the first time in this episode about a werewolf like creature.

3. The Anasazi (part 1 of 3) - S.2
The Blessing Way (part 2 of 3) - S.3
Paper Clip (part 3 of 3) - S.3
Reason: My favorite of the mythology series.

4. Syzygy - Season.3
Reason: Completely mental.

5. Pusher - S.3
Reason: Loved watching Mulder mentally compete with the bad guy.

6. Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space' - S.3
Reason: Best. Episode. Ever. 

7. Small Potatoes - S.4
Reason: It's cute and funny and psychotic.

8. Detour - S.5 
Reason: I really enjoy when Mulder and Scully get stuck some where and they get to have great conversation.

9.How the Ghosts Stole Christmas - S.6
Reason: Lily Tomlin and Ed Asner. Awesomesauce.

10. Arcadia - S.6
Reason: Mulder and Scully go undercover as a married couple, Rob and Laura Petrie!
Mulder to Scully: "Woman, get back in here and make me a sandwich." 

Special Mention
11. Home - S.4
Reason: Cause it's disturbing and gross and disturbing.

So, there you go. If you don't own the entire collection then you can order seasons from your local library or get them from Netflix Instant Watch.

Happy viewing!


  1. Thanks. There are so many great episodes. :)

  2. Should I admit that I have only ever seen a few episodes, and I have no idea which ones they were. Good choice for X.

  3. If only I were up on my X-files!

  4. I loved X-files, but I could never watch it alone! It was scary! But then a few weeks ago I caught an episode and it wasn't scary at all. Makes me wonder if I've gotten jaded. lol

  5. salarsen - Truly, it was hard to choose!

    Rhonda - It's okay. I get that a lot.

    Angela - That's all right. I'm up on it for you!

    India - Not all of the episodes were scary so maybe you aren't so jaded after all!

  6. My favorite show at the time! My favorite was your #10.

  7. Ooh, what a fun way to do the A-Z challenge! I used to love this show, but it's been forever since I've seen an episode. Thank you for checking out my blog! Trade follows? :-)

    xoxo Sarah

  8. Sorry Heather, never was into X-files. I do love science fiction, don't know why this one never stuck with me.

  9. Donna - I loved that one too! Mulder was so funny.

    Sarah - My wonderful husband bought me the set on DVD. It's my most prized possession!

    Wendy - I never really put them in the Sci/Fi category but I guess w/ all the talk of aliens they would have been. There were so many shows w/o the alien mythology that I always just considered them trying to solve cases about unexplained phenomenon.

  10. a lot of great episodes there. I think I might have to rewatch some of them

  11. I never missed an episode of the X-Files if I could help it.

  12. baygirl32 - Sounds great! Where should we start?

    J.L. - I slacked off at the end because of David, I do admit. But I caught back up eventually.
