I have been a fan of The X-Files since it was first aired on BBC when I was but a mere child. I also own all the seasons on DVD, but it has been a long time since I have watched them. If I’m honest with myself, while I would like to see every single episode in the collection again, I don’t think I ever will. Lack of time and willpower is to blame for this, with saddens me a little, as it really was an excellent television series.

Therefore, I have decided that across the next year, I will aim to watch the Top 50 episodes of the series, as voted for by fans on the Internet Movie Database. An episode will be picked at random from the list below for my enjoyment.

X-Philes (a term for X-Files fans/geeks) will see that no mythology episodes have been included in this list. I have purposely removed these, as any fan of the series knows the story, and personally I don’t enjoy them as standalone episodes.

You can expect my thoughts on each episode to be included on this blog.

The list:

  1. Bad Blood – 5.13
  2. Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose – 3.4
  3. Small Potatoes – 4.20
  4. Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man – 4.7
  5. Home – 4.2
  6. Humbug – 2.20

  10. Ice – 1.7
  11. Squeeze – 1.2
  12. Folie a Deux – 5.19
  13. Field Trip – 6.21
  14. Pusher – 3.17
  15. Beyond the Sea 1.12
  16. The Unnatural – 6.19
  17. The Post-Modern Prometheus – 5.5
  18. Unusual Suspects – 5.3
  19. Je Souhaite – 7.21
  20. Darkness Falls – 1.19

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
