    First I have to say, that I absolutly LOVE the X-Files and that I love Scully and Mulder. I'm a huge fan!



    Episodes I skip when I'm having a XF-Marathon:


    The field where I died (It's the opposit od XF2! They do end up together. It confuses me.)


    4D (Doggett Reyes Doggett Reyes Dogget Reyes,...)


    3 (No Scully.)


    The List (not always)


    The Walk (not always)


    Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man (It's ok, but just not worth watching over and over again)


    Mind's Eye (It's personal. I dislike the actress because of a role she played on Six Feet Under)


    Drive (I don't know why)


    Monday (I know many people love this episodes, but I don't know... I don't.)


    The Unnatural (everything BUT the beginning and the end with Mulder AND Scully)


    Hungry (because Mulder and Scully rarely appear)


    Brand X (not always)


    Je Souhaite (I watch it, but it's not really MOTW or anything, it's so different)


    Badlaa (It's fine, but a bit disgusting)


    Empedocles


    4D (Doggett Reyes Doggett Reyes Dogget Reyes,...)


    John Doe (not enough Scully^^)



    And The Truth, though I do watch it, it's not a top quality episode. The whole court thing was dragged to no end. Why must Mulder be in the middle of everything in the end? It's just stupid. The only good thing about the episode? They run away together in the end.

    There were many bad ones. Mostly from season 2 and season 7. I don;t know but generellay to me season 7 was the worst of all.

    I didn't really care for "Fight Club". Mostly because of Kathy Griffin, she was just annoying.

    Season 7 is probably my least favorite season as well. "Fight Club" would get my vote for worst X-Files episode. I think that was also the season with the guy being harassed by a mobster whose life is affected by luck (another episode I didn't think much of). "First Person Shooter" is another stinker for me. I also didn't care for the Doggett episode involving the third eye or the one where he's killed searching for Mulder in a small town. I'd think it was a little hard to be skeptical after coming back from the dead.


    In general, there are too many scenes in hospitals during the last couple of seasons.

    I love the movie and book, but right off the bat I will say, "Fight Club." It just wasn't ... good. As for the others, I could pretty much watch this entire series and not b***h about an episode but NOT Fight Club.



    Edit: ha, I completely forgot about my signature. 2 years of not being here and this is what I get ahaha.

    @ vicbjones: I'm not a huge fan of 'First Person Shooter' either. The episode just seems rather sexist to me. Other than some good M & S interaction, it's not really worth it. As for 'Fight Club', it's a guilty pleasure for me. I like it ok enough, the whole 'fake' M & S fighting and Scully not even noticing it, made me laugh. It's really silly.

    As for eps, I could have done without... 'The Field Where I Died'... *ugh* Also, not an episode, but I could have done with less 'whiny' Scully and no 'William is some sort of savior' thing...

    Hungry and Unnatural, because Mulder and Scully hardly appear, so these episodes do not mean any importance. Also 3, No scully.

    Of course you don't care about the baseball.



    Hungry and The Unnatural were both excellent episodes. The Unnatural might be my favorite episode of the whole show. Hungry made the MotW a sympathetic character, which is just really cool.
