    I would have added Triangle but the transfer on the DVD is so terrible that I find the episode to be unwatchable.


    what do you mean?

    The aspect ratio on the episode jumps around and i looks like it was recorded in a cinema

    No it is the original season 6 fold out box set. If you look around the internet people everywhere have the same prob. Maybe it's just here in R1 land. Are your DVD's from America

    Maybe you just don't like the style they shot it in. I mean it was different to most of the other episodes.

    10. Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - One of the greatest hours in TV history. Period. OK. There that's better. Now you can have a little room to take in some air.

    I applaud you!

    I'll try to limit my choices to ten. =)


    1. Bad Blood - an awesomely hilarious episode, starting right from the teaser. The drastically different stories told from either agent's point of view are also funny and underscore the differences between Mulder and Scully.


    2. Arcadia - the best mix of horror and comedy done in The X Files in my opinion.


    3. Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - featuring one of the most acclaimed and beloved guest appearances from the late Peter Boyle.


    4. Beyond the Sea - a very intense and engaging episode and our first look under Scully's thick veneer.


    5. Detour - the scene where the creature chases the boy inside his house is possibly the scariest moment of the entire series.


    6. Jose Chung's "From Outer Space" - probably the most bizarre ep of the show, an engaging foray into comedic territory. Blankety-blank bleep!


    7. Home - some of my favorite cinematography and superb work from the late Kim Manners. The sunlit scenery betrays the dark and dreadful events of the plot.


    8. Syzygy - this episode was a source of mixed reaction from fans, but I personally thought Mulder and Scully's bickering and the uncharacteristic behaviors exhibited by the two were hilarious.


    9. Die Hand Die Verletzt - another creepy and disturbing episode. In what other episode does a snake swallow a man whole?


    10. Pusher - the revolver scene says it all.


    Also of notable mention: Humbug

    Ice, Pusher and Detour.

    Great episodes, I've watched them over and over I even know their lines.

    That one is Teso Dos Bichos. For some reason a lot of people don't like that one, but I agree with you. It's good.

    I can never remember the title to that episode. The Mummy has long been my favorite of the classic Universal monsters, and I was expecting the explanation to be something along those lines. So when Mulder and Scully find out what's been killing these people, it was a pleasant surprise to me.

    I've only watched up to Season 4. (I know, I'm horrible!) But I just got Season 5 and I plan on watching it soon.


    Anyway, here's my list so far. In no order.


    1. Beyond the Sea - I like how the dynamic between Scully and Mulder switches so that Scully becomes the believer and Mulder is the skeptic.


    2. Oubliette - I love when they really give depth to characters in the stand alone episodes, and I felt this one did an amazing job at that.


    3. Die Hand Die Verletzt - Just a really well done episode in general.


    4. Paper Hearts - I liked how this episode wasn't showcased as "woah! look how wacky and weird the x-file of the week is!" It was just a very personal story, and those are always the best.


    5. Unruhe - Like numbers 2 and 4 on this list, I just liked how much depth they gave the characters. And I thought the story in and of itself was pretty unique. And plus, I love when this show delves into the kind of, lesser known paranormal events, like thoughtography, in this one.

    In no particular order:
    Oubliette
    Home
    Kill Switch
    X-Cops
    Je Souhaite

    If I could add two more, they would be "Squeeze" and "Small Potatoes".

    "Jump the Shark" is also one of my favorites, but only because I watched The Lone Gunmen spinoff series. If I hadn't watched that series, I probably would have been confused by "Jump the Shark".

    1) Bad Blood- Never gets old. funniest ep of the series and that's saying a lot!


    2) Field Trip- Unlike most this one has a (relatively) plausible and well explained scientific explanation.


    3) Dreamland- Not a favorite among most fans but I couldn't stop laughing. Under-rated classic in my book


    4) Quagmire- The Loch Ness inspired ep. Just great dialogue with Mulder and Scully.


    5) Detour- Ridiculous explanation involving Ponce DeLeon but none-the-less a classic. The scene in the cave is chilling


    6) Drive- Simple premise but very well executed.


    7) Pine-bluff Variant- This one is often overlooked. To me its a chilling classic.


    Clyde Bruckman- Peter Boyle is awesome. So many great lines


    9) Jose Chung's...- Mulder eating the pies and asking questions about UFO's is the hardest I've ever laughed at an X-Files ep.


    10) Grotesque- The insight into Mulder's character is brilliant here. I love when they embrace his near insanity.
