6 pages of great memories of the X-files and I only just found this thread.
I used to love that show even though it freaked me out too at times! One of the best shows ever!

Wow - GREAT thread! I didn't know so many people loved this show! I only own season 6 (most of my favorite episodes, Dreamland Pt I, II, How the Ghosts Stole Christmas, Triangle, Drive, Rain King, Arcadia...) and that's merely because Best Buy had them on sale for 49.99 instead of 99.99.

I got sucked into the 1st season, I was like, 8 or 9 I think. So great. Scared the crap out of me, some of the episodes (the ones with the ghost that crushed people's necks from the inside out, for example).

I used to militantly watch X-Files when it was on Friday nights... Then that 'Millennium" show came on, and bumped it to Sunday night... Grumble...

Plus, my name is Samantha, so I always thought it was cool that that was his sister's name too... WooOo!

I even made my parents take my pre-teen self to an X-Files convention way back when (first couple of seasons), and am mad I wasn't quite interested enough in the guests -- The Lone Gunmen. (ARGH!).

When I was first in line for the movie, I was happy to see theatre employees dressed up as FBI agents... I enjoyed the SciFi vendors seeling X-Files wares (I think I have wo aliens wearing I love Mulder/Scully shirts) and a recreation of Scully's badge.

I even contemplated cutting my hair to look similar to hers... I always liked her styled bob.. (Ahh!)

I was a member of the fan club, I wore my 'The Truth Is Out There' shirt proudly, despite being too large for myself... I still have my 'Deny Everything' sticker on my window and I even have the 'I Want To Believe' Poster from Mulder's office. I thinkI still have the X-Files hat I have, and some of the trading cards and a few of the books.

That being said, I hated, hated, HATED, the seasons where Mulder was gone - and I kind of zoned out during seasons 8 and 9. I managed to catch the last episode on mute (a friend of mine called, and now I've yet to actually see it), and I've been catching the re-runs on TNT way late at night and burst out laughing at the sheer un-X-Files-ness of the episodes with Doggett and them all... Not good at all.

My favourite episode would have to be the one where Mulder FINALLY finds his sister. I know its not a particular popular episode with other X-Filer's, but the scene at the end where Mulder is walking through the crowd of ghost children, finally finds his sister and hugs her, while Moby's "My Weakness" is playing at the background. Chokes me up everytime.
That episode made me cry every time!! (That's how I discovered Moby!) So good...

But here's where I can top you all.

Like U2democrat, I went as Scully for Halloween one year. Everyone really liked it and my cousin took a copy of the photo because she knew a guy who supposedly looked like Mulder and he couldn't find a good Scully. Fast forward to us attending a Trek convention together in costume...we were a huge hit. And it just kept going and going among this group of Trekkies, until finally, we landed on the back cover of the official X-Files Magazine, launching a whole lookalike contest. I kid you not. I still have copies of the magazine to prove it. If you want to see the photo, it's here. I always thought we looked crap! (I was only 17 when this was taken, wow!)


X-Files Photo
WOAH! Hahahaha! I used to get that magazine!! Hahahaha! You guys look way too good!

Re: Re: "X-Files" Appreciation Thread

"Ah so many memories - the flukeman, humbug and that millenium crossover episode ~ oh and that zany episode of the x-files show in the show with Gary Shandling and Tea Leoni (I wonder how she got that gig ).

Yes. Hollywood AD - such a funny episode... Jose Chung's was good too...

Anyone remember the episode where there was a fat kid who was a vampire (but he delivered pizzas, I think?!). That was a pretty funny episode... I don't remember much of it, however. Hope I'm not hallucinating.

Post-Modern Prometheus is another classic. And Tales of a Cigarette Smoking Man!
Rob and Laura Petrie, hahaha!

"Admit it Scully, you just want to play house!"

"Woamn, get back in here and make me a sandwhich!"

Love, love, love that episode.

That's what I love about Dreamland Pt. II, when Mulder (the real one) comes back to the apartment and then opens the door to make sure it's his place...

I laugh every time when Scully said to pseudo-Mulder, "I didnt even know you HAD a bedroom!"

Yes. Hollywood AD (I love the scene where they're all on the phone in the bubble bath, and Mulder says something like Skin-man's taking a bubble bath, and Skinner's still on the line) - such a funny episode... Jose Chung's was good too... Anyone see X-Cops?! (The one that's like Cops?!)

Anyone remember the episode where there was a fat kid who was a vampire (but he delivered pizzas, I think?!). That was a pretty funny episode... I don't remember much of it, however. Hope I'm not hallucinating.

Anyone see the Simpsons episode with Mulder and Scully? My absolute favorite... Agent Mulder, FBI (his badge is HILARIOUS!)

I remember that episode with the vampires too. Don't know the name either. I loved the scene with Mulder's sunflower seeds. The bag get's dropped and this vampire HAS to pick every single sunflower seed up from the ground. (hope we're talking about the same episode here )

And I've seen the one that was like Cops too. It was with the camera crew and the worst fears of people becoming real somehow... Pretty freaky stuff

I'm so happy that this thread has taken off! It shows wat an incredible show X-Files was to still have such a loyal fan base.

Oh, Triangle was awesome!

"Scully?"
"Yes?"
"I love you."
"Oh, brother."
