[quote:c482898ba8="brad"][quote:c482898ba8="ilis"][quote:c482898ba8="brad"]right... X-Files movie gets NO promotion at all from TEN. Not even 1 coming up next ad at the end of Rove. I only watched the first half-hr before turning over for 24.[/quote:c482898ba8] I watched it and quite enjoyed it despite not having seen the season before it was set.[/quote:c482898ba8]

yeah, the film ties into the previous season and also bridges into the next season. With the X-Files closed. I think that was the finale where [spoiler:c482898ba8]the X-Files office and X-files were set on fire.. from memory??[/spoiler:c482898ba8] But the film definitely stands well as a 'stand alone' film. I would have originally watched the movie before ever seeing the episodes/seasons before it.

What season are you up to now ilis?[/quote:c482898ba8] Haven't watched since the end of Season 3. Ill get to the other ones someday just haven't been motivated lately. Hopefully ill have them all if I can afford it by the end of this year.

X-Files is my obsession.
Best. TV. Show. EVER. Well in my opinion anyway.

They were showing the first movie on Sky Movie Greats over here for a while. Think I saw it 3 times in a week :)

Hey thanks for the welcome!

Season 3, then 7, 6 and 4.
Love the comedy type episodes - Small Potatoes, Clyde Bruckman, Triangle, Dreamland etc etc

Watched the series through about 3 times. It's my fix. I put in an ep whenever I'm feeling blue.

yeah the comedy episodes were great. Especially the one you mentioned "Dreamland". That episode is hilarious. One of my favourites. I love the humour in the series.. even in a very serious episode there is still that underlining humour, which usually plays off Mulder and Scullys chemistry together. Its great! I never thought the X-Files was this comedic from what I had originally seen when the show was on the air. But I was young and thought the X-Files was scary at that time. So it was amazing to finally watch the whole series and I love it.

I like the serious episodes as well and the arcs. Seasons 1-3 are my favourites. Also season 6.

They only really started with the comedic episodes from S2's Humbug, which was very successful. From there it was continued to great effect - something to break up the intense mytharc episodes.
Who knew the X-Files could do comedy so well. A lot of it is thanks to Darin Morgan, who wrote many of these episodes, and even starred as the Flukeman and Eddie Van BlundHt.

Darin Morgan is an amazing writer/director. Apart from Chris Carter, he produced the strongest episodes of the show.

I just watched the S6 episode Triangle, with my 2 yr old nephew.
He loved it! Sat and watched the entire 42 minutes. Anyone who knows 2 yr olds knows that's quite a feat. Never too young to recruit to the cause :D
