    The interiors of both houses were so dark I couldn't see a damn thing. Though maybe this is like shooting the messenger, because our internet connection is so poor.



    Also, don't give me that crap about taking all day. Saying "officer down" would have alerted every cop in the area.
  • Home, No Place Like It! A horrifyingly entertaining episode!

    10
    Home was a perfect and very entertaining episode of The X-Files. I really enjoyed watching because the story was very good, the characters were awesome and the backgrounds really helped set the tone. I was reminded of Texas Chainsaw Massacre mixed with other horror movies. Some truly disturbing things happened and the family involved are inbred degenerates. Mulder and Scully worked well together and it was sad to see the Sheriff, his wife, and the deputy all get murdered. The ending was spooky knowing they are still out there, and that song was perfect! I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!
  • A "Wonderful, Wonderful" episode

    10

    Mulder and Scully are sent to Home, Pennsylvania to investigate the live burial of a deformed infant, a child entombed in a sandlot under home plate next door to a local family well known for its incestuous ways. This bucolic Mayberry is shattered when Sherriff Taylor and his wife are bludgeoned to death in one of the most horrific death scenes ever shown on The X-Files or any show for that matter. I suspect it was the stunning brutality of their murder, not the theme of incest, that finally brought forth a Parental Guidance warning from the network. Matters escalate as Scully becomes convinced that the horribly disfigured newborn was birthed by a woman held captive by the Peacock recluses, and the agents move in on a house so filled with horror it would have sent Norman Bates screaming in terror.


    Chris Carter has made it plain from the beginning that the series is out to scare us at any cost. And if he can't scare us, he will shock us. And these were the scariest and most shocking characters in The X-Files rich history of monsters of the week; thank God and Directors of Photography Ron Stannett and Jon Joffin for wisely putting Mulder and Scully in plenty of sunlight to balance the gloom and corruption of that haunted house.


    Every family archetype is trotted out and crucified: the dutiful sons are dim-witted thugs, and their loving mother is a controlling tyrant who sacrifices a family's soul to preserve its decaying flesh. I'm surprised she buried her infant; I expected her to eat it. This unremitting portrait of evil is sharply contrasted against our heroes, whose companionable relationship, intelligence, and bravery highlight this episode.


    Morgan and Wong's strong suit has always been characterization, and in this script they deliver some of the best Mulder and Scully scenes, and some of the best secondary character writing to date. Scully takes the driver's seat both literally and metaphorically in this episode. Warm, funny, and wise, Gillian Anderson's "uber-Scully" is a warrior-scientist mother figure who strides across this story like Brunnhilde in a tailored suit. Despite Mulder's insistence that this case is not an X-File, she persists in liberating the helpless woman she is convinced is being held in the Peacock house. She leads the investigation with her head but backs it up superbly with her heart, unwilling to risk leaving a defenseless victim in peril another minute even if it means risking her own life.


    The baseball-juggling scene was wonderful, as Agent Mulder tells us more about his boyhood in 8 seconds than the previous three years have revealed. Tucker Smallwood's Sheriff Taylor, is cast from the same mold as Andy Griffith himself: a gentle, peace loving man who loves his small town so passionately it blinds him to the danger at its heart. Karin Konoval gives an impressive performance as Momma Peacock, one of the most malignant characters to ever adorn The X-Files.


    A gruesome episode enhanced by some really creepy settings and "wonderful" characters.

  • A strange family of inbred freaks wreak havoc

    7.9
    The second episode this season finds an episode that is filled with some truly scary images and a couple of awesome moments. However, the rest of the episode drags on and goes nowhere, and this isn't an X-File so much as it is an episode following horrific things. If you take away the couple of scenes that were great, you have a sub-par episode without much of a story.

    It's important to notice what the episode did a good job with though. That scene where the freaks broke into the Sheriff's house and beat them to death while that old song played in the background.. it was haunting and one of the darkest (if not the darkest) thing that the show has done to date. Also, that final scene where Mulder and Scully break into the house was awesome and shows the show can do great action scenes.

    I just didn't like how little mystery there was.. there was obviously moments that we questioned, but we knew right from the first scene what was happening and who was responsible and we also know right away that they inbred. There was no mystery and nothing to question, just a few great scenes with a bunch of expository scenes in the middle.. I will say this though: there was some great Mulder/Scully interactions throughout, something I hope the show does more of in the future.
  • Did I find this to be one of the most creepy episodes of the X-Files ever? Yes I did, and here's why...

    9.0
    Firstly, there's no unexplainable paranormal activity going on here. The idea of a family inbreeding amongst themselves, shows something that can happen in real life (and probably does for all we know), is what brought chills down my spine as I was watching this episode.

    Secondly, it showed the extent to which the Peacock family would go to follow their own traditions, knowing that a change could destroy them, but at the same time, going to any length to make sure they still had their home to do their business. And finally, just the tone that this episode set in such a suspenseful manner made me sit at the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happened next. The parts where Mulder and Scully enter their home, knowing there are traps set, or when the Peacock brother sneak into the Sheriff's home are scenes were some of the most suspenseful moments that I have seen in a while.

    I thought everyone acted really well in this episode, and I can see why this is considered one of the more disturbing episodes of the show.
  • What Do You Call A Kid With No Arms And No Legs?

    9.0
    My wife is the squeamish type. She refuses to watch horror movies and she wonders what the heck I am doing watching all of these X-File episodes back to back on DVD. But curious, she decides to join me just this once on the couch for tonight's episode, "Home."

    It's a hard sell when the opening scene depicts the painful delivery of a child on a tabletop one dark and stormy night. It's a much, MUCH harder sell when the participants grab a shovel and head outside to dig a baby-sized hole in the wet mud. LOL, what was I thinking? By the time Mulder and Scully wheeled mom out from under the bed in the basement, it was all over and I was alone on the couch, and probably will continue to be alone through Season Nine. ;)

    I am in awe at the darkness and utter creepiness of this episode. It was like something out of a Nick Cave album, full of every imaginable sin and trangression against nature and it still managed to get aired on television. Haha! Amazing! I still don't understand why the three amigos decided to go caveman on the Sheriff and his wife but it was a horrifically effective scene, especially as played against the Mathis song. The family photos pasted on the basement walls were a nice touch too.

  • Most Controversial episode

    Home

    -Creepy freakin' teaser.
    -Was this before or after Slipknot released their first CD?
    -Mulder loves baseball. This episode makes a creepy connection to the American pass-time.
    -Every little town has a dark secret.
    -Yikes! Creepy eyes under the bed!
    -I love the shot of the Sheriff contemplating pulling out his gun from storage before ultimately putting it back. It shows how much he wants to believe that his town is still safe.
    -"One good, last look around…" True.
    -Wonderful Wonderful. This is a great application of situational irony exemplified by music.
    -Who would win in a fight, the Peacock Brothers or Chuck Norris? I think they would give Chazz a run for his money.
    -This episode is exceptionally well directed. The close-up shots and the expertly executed camera-pans are fantastic.
    -There is not very much of a score by Mark Snow in this episode.
    -"They really went Cave Man on them." Mulder's comment is more comedic because the Peacocks look like the Geico cave men.
    -The Gang-bang scene haunted my dreams for months when I fist saw this.
    -"Bah ram ewe." Perfect time for a little comic relief.
    -"The War of Northern Aggression." Not just inbreeds, but southern inbreeds.
    -Got to love the trunk space in those early model Cadillacs.
    -Another X Files episode where the monster/villain gets away in the end.

    What can I say about this episode that has not already been said? It is fantastic. This story really pushed the envelope of what can be shown on network TV. Even while re-watching it today--I was wincing. The thought of Mrs. Peacock hiding under my bed gave me nightmares well into December. The murder of the Sheriff and his wife is particularly disturbing as well. I will never (and I suspect that I am not alone on this) be able to listen to Johnny Mathis the same way again. This is probably one of the best-known episodes of the show's entire run. It seems like about once a week someone will come onto the board to ask 'what episode is the one with the mutant family that kills a baby?' There is a certain lack of original score in this episode that maintaining the constant malevolent, dreary feeling. This differs from many other X Files episodes that normally feature the ear pleasing tones of Mr. Mark Snow.

    I noticed something about this episode that I had not noticed in prior viewings. There is a sort of a non-spoken, sympathetic connection between the Peacocks and the Sherriff. Both families were afraid of change. They were both entrenched in their traditions and way of life. Each group was also content coexisting apart from each other. The scene where Mulder asks if they could inspect the fetal cadaver in the Sheriff's office with the door locked. He replies, "Oh, everyone knows that I never have my door locked." (Or something like that.)

    I am not sure if this episode speaks more toward anti-big business or anti-government. Either way, they both are recurring themes in the X Files universe. The Peacocks were anti-progress and anti-technology. Additionally, the Sheriff seemed to be anti-progress. He seemed happy to let things lie and was reluctant, to say the least, about involving the FBI in the case. He was, to his credit, much nicer than the local small town law enforcement usually is to Mulder and Scully (a la DPO or Quagmire.)

    Overall, this is an excellent episode. Part of the appeal for me is that I am sort of a closet gore-hound, not so much the new age torture-porn of SAW and Hostel but classic gore like Hellraiser, Cannibal Holocaust, and Braindead. This episode could have been a great addition to the midnight grind-house classics if it were a movie in the late 1970s.

    10/10

    I feel sort of anti human by giving this grotesque episode such a high rating. Nevertheless, I think it deserves the style points. Groundbreaking television.
  • An ultra reclusive and violent rural Penn. family, whose chornic inbreeding has led to all sorts of deformities, become one of the most vicious and surreal X-Files cases.

    9.0
    This episode proves that a seemingly typical monster-of-the-week episode (free of government conspiracies and space aliens) can be a really creepy, shocking and smart thrill ride. With content that pushed the envelope as to what network television allowed, this episodes mixes in cruel violence and disturbing inbreeding with a surreal satire of how Hollywood has often depicted American small town life as being 'ideal' and 'all-American'. To top it off, we have a wonderful use of Johnny Mathis, as part of the cultural satire, and, in a final twist, some of the evil family members manage to escape. My complaints are few and far between, although this is certainly NOT an X-Files episode for kids. Part of me wishes that this had been a two party episode, to really flesh -- pardon the pun -- out the satire and jabs at small town America. In real life I doubt that the family would have been able to avoid investigations from police, social workers or the school board. It seemed as if the inbreeding had, somehow, made the family members super strong. As someone else noted, backup would have come much sooner then stated because they contacted the county or state police, rather then wait for the FBI. Aside from these problems, this is one of the best 'monster-of-the-week' X-Files episodes.
  • The only episode or movie I've ever turned off my TV to. Frightening episode.

    8.0
    To set things straight from the start, I've never seen this entire episode. The only time that I've seen parts of it was when I was about 12 years old and I remember that I had to turn off my TV due to the disturbing and scary stuff that was going on. I lasted until the scene where the Peacocks enter the sheriff's house and are about to go ballistic. Then things just got too strong for my liking, especially since a certain sympathy for the sheriff had been established.

    I have thought about the episode for a couple of times during my life and been thinking about whether I should watch the whole episode, but haven't done it so far. I do think that I will watch the entire episode in the coming futurem but don't know when really.

    I understand the people who say that this episode was groundbreaking stuff and one of the better X-Files episodes, but personally I think it's just too much. If I see it again I'll probably consider it to be a very good, though still disturbing episode, and I'd be likely to give it an 8 out of 10.
  • This has been advertised to me as "one of the most disturbing X-Files episodes ever." Yes, it is.

    9.0
    This episode takes the urban legend of the creepy middle American family to a really terrifying place. The live burial of a deformed newborn is only the beginning, literally. While slowly revealing the extent of the Peacock family creepiness, this episode also manages to connect ideas of home and family to both Scully and Mulder, revealing their ideas of motherhood and memories of childhood with quick interactions and reactions. And whether by great acting or great writing, even the short lived Sheriff requires our sympathy before his end.

    Perhaps the most disturbing question of all is whether the mother of the Peacock family is there by choice or not. She says she is - she seems to be - and yet she's also tied and unable to move in any case. Who's really calling the shots there?

    Many levels, much horror, and some humour. A classic episode and definitely a good example of why I watched this show.
  • A baby is found buried alive in shallow ground and appears to have birth defects resulting from generations of inbreeding, leading Mulder and Scully to a reclusive family who have a history of inbred children.

    This was one of the best X files episodes ever. It aired over 12 years ago and were still talking about it. When our weekly group of X filers got together on Oct. 11, 1996. We did not expect HOME to be, what it turned out to be. After it was over, we were still sitting in the sames spots as we started, stunned and I must say a little disturbed. It took us a few moments until we were able to discuss what we all just witnessed. We knew then that this was a classic episode and that it belongs in the elite X Files.
  • Home is not always the place you want to be...

    9.5
    I find this episode to be amazing! The more I watch it, the more I love it. I know some people say that it scared or scares them, but it never scared me. It was more revealing than anything. I found it intersting and the thought that I know that worst things happen than this in real life, is the exact reason why it doesn't bother me.

    So...I thought there was a bit of character development in here as well. Scully seemed...I don't want to say emotionally attached to the dead baby, but she definitely felt something. I guess, who wouldn't under the circumstances. It's just, like her mother instincts kicked in. I loved the seen when her and Mulder were sitting on the bench outside talking about it. The "Obber Scully's." I believe Mulder refered it as. LOL Asking about family genetics in general was development for both of them.

    I liked when Mulder and Scully went into the house. Creepy with all sorts of traps...and OMG, the mother! Wow! Pretty nasty looking, eh? LOL I always loved the song that plays in this episode...I'm slipping at the name right now but ya all know the episode and know what I'm talking about =)

    All around, awesome!

  • This episode scared me to death. One of the most frightening and best written X-files

    9.0
    Ever since I first day this episode, It scared the hell out of me. What can I say? I was young at the time, but even to this day I cannot sit and watch Home. Oh dear sweet lord, I have to move, distract myself from everything. If you like having nightmares and if you love the feeling of the hair raising on the back of your neck, this is the X-Files epidode for you. Home clearly took X-Files to a new level in terror, being grotesque and touching on subjects most television shows wouldn't dare go near with a ten foot pole.
  • This episode scared the hell out of me...

    This episode scared the hell out of me! ive never been so freaked out by a television episode as much as this. I remember back when i was about 5 or 6 and my Sister was a serious X-Files fan. I remember being in the living room and she knew what was going to happen and she would say watch this part! and i would flip out! i covered my eyes but had to watch because the x files is so interesting and cool (i remember leaving the movie theater with my sister after seeing the movie and wearing a hooded jacket like mulder did when he rescued scully and i was pretending to be mulder :) ). The mom freaks me out, the guys freak me out, the story freaks me out, hell even the song wonderful wonderful freaks me out. This is a great episode haha
  • Hardcore and extraordinary

    10
    This is one of those very best X-Files ever. It stands out, and I mean completly. There is no real paranormal phenomena in this one... its just a brutal vision of something that is very possible.
    What hooked me most were of course those extreme scenes of violence, the animality of the Peacocks. The most intens murder scene ever was the murder of the black sherif. I really dont recall a more drastic scene in the whole X-Files history. Throughout the whole episode the editing was amazing, for not only the scenes for themselfs were grose... the mood was defined by this cinema style editing.
    For what this episode stands out too, is the relationship between our two agents. There is some dark humor, but it shows diffrent aspects of their friendship. As someone who grew up in cities, I was also amused by something I went through myslef. You go to a very small village and think, thats how I wanna get old, but as soon as you see, that there is bad TV conection, no internet and so on you soon realise, you wanna head back to the city as soon as possible.

    One of the best!
  • mulder and scully investegate the very strange and weird peacock family

    8.9
    well after watching seasons 4-9 i started on home and its the episodes that got me hooked and now i am currently buying all the season im currently working on season six and i want to have all seasons buy the end of ther year. but home is one that got me hooked cuz it relenqushed my fear of that someones under the bed in its weird certain way and i loved watching it again when i bought the fourth season.it is definently one that stands out in my head,and its one that ill show my kids when their my age.
  • Disgusting

    9.8
    This episode is practically the most horrible and disgusting X-Files episode of all time. But because of this it is also one of the best. All the things in this episode, the genetic abnormalities, burying a child alive, incest etc are so taboo, that I have to give credit to the writers for having the courage to write an episode as gory as this. Apart from the story there are other great things in this episode, for example the relaxed music from the Peacock's car stereo and the nostalgic down-on-the groun shooting angles of the Cadillac when the Peacock brothers leave their Home to kill the sheriff and his wife. In a usual, boring TV series you would also expect the sheriff's wife to escape safely when hidden under the bed, but not in X-Files.

    Also, there were some funny remarks between Mulder and Scully, about their families genetic histories. Mulder's attitude when first at the crime scene also made an interesting contrast in comparison to the horrible events that had taken place at the scene.

    This episode is what the X-Files is all about: horrible events depicted in style that contradicts the events making the events even more horrible than they already seem. An easy going 50's style song playing and three genetically malformed brothers smashing a sheriff's wife in the background. Pure genius.
  • agents investigate the death of a infant. grusom. a break through for the x-files

    9.9
    this is one of my favorite episodes.a classic that was only ever aired once.on the egde of your seat suspence. a great watch! it really makes you wonder if there are people put there that are so insest that they could create such monsters. when there in the house looking for the peacock family its so suspensful. compared to the older episodes this one definaltly is one of the episodes that you can really notice that the special effects are getting better. its getting more grusome.. i really do believe that this episode is a break through for the x-files.watch it
  • Possibly the most disturbing episode ever.

    10
    Some SPOILERS in here, but it's impossible to discuss the episode without them.



    Starting with the birth, death and burial of a baby, leading to the discovery of a very unusual family and a mother stored under the bed, this is a very difficult episode to watch. It deals with some very sensitive issues - incest, deformity, murder, suspicion of neighbours, outcasts etc. It's quite surprising they even got away with some of the scenes, but this is a brilliant episode, even though it's not easy viewing.

    The murder of the sheriff and his wife is particularly creepy, especially given the Wonderful Wonderful soundtrack that goes with it. And the house with its booby traps is chilling too. But nothing compares to the discovery of mother under the bed - that is just plain freaky.

    One of my favourite episodes for all the wrong reasons really - it feels odd to like something that is so bizarre. And there's nothing extraterrestial about it either, so the weirdness is of our own making as it were.

    Great episode, manages to put some humour into a very unfunny plot, and the final scene is so gruesome and appalling that it just makes it an unforgettable episode.
  • Painful to watch, but in a good way.

    8.2
    Truly one of the most frightening episodes of X-Files. When I read the summary of the episode before having watched it I was appalled, and was expecting this episode to... well suck, I mean c'mon, inbreeding? For God sakes.

    Well I watched it, and I'm still appalled by it, but this is an amazing episode.

    That's why I like the X-Files, it deals with taboo and forbidden subject matter like this without apology, you really have to hand it to the producers for having the guts to come up with, and air an episode like this.

    Dead babies, inbreeding... Sheriff Andy Taylor, this episode is just wow. Truly one of the most visceral and frightening episodes I've seen of the X-files to date. The scenes with Mulder and Scully in the house are just sheer nail-biting terror. Though I have to admit a few scenes in the episode made my stomach turn, but hey it's the X-Files right?

    "Home" will frighten you, freak you out, and generally just make you feel the need to gag, but you won't be able to tear yourself away.
  • Holy mother of..

    8.4
    What can I say about this episode? Really. It had a lot of moments when I had to turn my head away because I don't appreciate blood and gore in excess. The premise of the episode - incest and deformity - tugged at some very primal level of me, where it disgusted me and frightened me on new levels of thought. I didn't know what to make of it. Interesting though, because I really enjoyed this episode if I factor out the repulsive elements to it. Mulder and Scully learn some new things about each other - such as Mulder's love of the country, and Scully's mothering instinct. Overall, I found the episode to be cleverly written and well-played, and the topic to be daring and challenging to watch. I don't know how often I could rewatch this episode, but I may. We'll see.
  • One of the top ten best episodes ever!

    This episode is one of my favorites!This was the first episode I had ever seen of the X-files, and I have been a fan of the series ever since. It\'s haunting and disturbing, yet fascinating and creative. The song that is played is perfect and now when I hear it, it gives me the chills.
  • Keeping it in the family.

    9.0
    Home is an excellent episode in the X-Files world but is a story which demands much of its viewer.
    Many of the stories themes revolve around deformaty, incest, rape, murder and a fear of the unfamiliar that leaves poeple feeling uncomfortable.
    There are moments of humour plus elements of horror and the claustrophobic feel when the agents enter the "Home" to confront the Peacock family is an excellent finale.
  • Very very good

    10
    Scully: “Mulder, if you had to do without a cell phone for two minutes, you’d lapse into catatonic schizophrenia.”

    This episode has a reputation for being controversial and shocking. And it is. Home is frightening and funny, surprising and disturbing. In fact, Home is one of the most genuinely “thrilling” X-Files episodes I’ve seen. Alongside the horror is also relationship development for Mulder and Scully, adding a few laughs to a grim and gory tale.
    A series classic – but uneasy viewing.
  • Memorable.

    9.0
    In "The Nitpicker's Guide to The X-Files", this episode is trashed. The author thought the episode lacked creativity so completely that he called it the worst episode in the series (to be fair, the book was published after the fourth season, and he hadn't seen Fight Club yet). He said it was gimmicky horror film fare.

    Home is controversial like that. People love it, people hate it, people like it but won't watch it again. The subject matter was so controversial that FOX refused to play the episode after its original airing.

    Home isn't the best episode of the X-Files. It isn't the funniest, or the scariest, or the most interesting. It might be the grossest, although The Host and Badlaa are up there. But Home is funny, scary, interesting, and gross, and yes, good too, and that's part of what makes it memorable. And it is memorable -- Home is quite possibly the most remembered episode. Because we remember Mulder and the baseball, Mrs. Peacock under the bed, Mulder, Scully, and the pigs, Mulder and Scully on the bench, the Peacock brothers driving to "Wonderful, Wonderful". References to The Andy Griffith Show are very cleverly woven into the episode.

    I love this episode, I really do. I don't think it can be helped. Home is meant to be loved.
  • Dirty Inbreads

    9.0

    “Home” see’s Mulder and Skully investigate a small town after a dead deformed baby is discovered in a shallow grave. After this the rest of the episode is a bit like “Wrong Turn” or “The Hills have eyes” cause there’s a bunch of dirty inbreds running around killing people. This is a good episode and is rather funny in parts, especially when you see the family and at the end when the family are plotting to have some more kids. Also there’s also a high body cont in this one too. But overall I would give this episode 9 out of 10.

  • A family of inbred children have a lot of secrets to hide from Mulder and Scully when a newborn baby is found burried in a small town. Awesome episode!

    9.6
    This episode I watched a long time ago. I was up late on a school night and couldn\\\'t sleep, and just so happened this episode was on TNT. Boy oh boy, this was such an awesome episode! If I\\\'m not mistaken, I remember a set of eyes looking at you from underneath the bed, which was the mother of the two sons. That was such a great part! I ordered this season on DVD and completely skipped Season 3 because of this episode! The weirder, the better, and this episode fits the mold.
  • One of those episodes made all the more scary by the complete lack of supernatural elements.

    9.1
    Quite frankly, this episode is probably the freakiest one for me of the entire X-Files run. There are no supernatural monsters or conspiracies, just human behavior. Yes, there are other episodes that show the same lack of other-worldly ties, but those focus on killers. This one is just about a single family, living life they way they should. That makes it a thousand times freakier.

    It's been stated in other reviews that the use of music, notably the song "Wonderful World," was masterful in this episode and I really have to agree with that. In fact, the various elements of light-heartedness and comedy during the episode really increased the shock and horror at the twisted family's lives. By enhancing the normality of the setting and the majority of the characters, the abnormal elements stand out in stark contrast. Because, really, the inbreeding of that family could happen anywhere. And that just makes it that much more disturbing.
  • The one with the freak family

    10
    The first episode I ever saw of The X-files.

    This is the most chilling, disturbing and creepy hour of The X-files and probably of any horror show.

    It worked so well, plus it had actually a lot of depth. It looked like a great horror movie.

    It has a very disturbing teaser where a baby is born but apparently not healthy and some men put it in the ground (alive, which is disturbing as it is) the next day some kids are playing outside and they step on something. A baby’s hand is graved out.

    When Scully and Mulder get the body they look at it and it’s monstrous, it has all the illness a kid could have. (so judging by that, they buried it because it would be better than to suffer for the rest of their lives)

    The most disturbing and best piece of film was when the three brothers went to kill the sheriff, while they killed him his wife was watching in fear and waiting for the same fate. The music used during that scene was a happy, pretty song which made the feel much more disturbing.

    The guy who found the bodies goes with Mulder and Scully to the weird family, when the guy goes in he walks into a trap and he has his head cut off (decapitated, ouch)

    So Mulder and Scully need another way to get in and let the pigs out and meanwhile they go into the house where they found the woman, she turned out to be the mother. (yikes, they all three had a baby with their mom? Distuuurbing) but she didn’t seem to want to go with them, it’s her home.

    When the three are coming in they fight and Mulder and Scully kill two, the other one is gone and so is the mother. Nobody could find them but it turns out that they were in the trunk of the car.

    What a chilling but fantastic episode. The first time I saw it, I was 8 years and it gave me a week filled with nightmares. Awesome episode.

    "Home" was the very first episode I ever saw of "The X-Files" and I was immediately hooked. I still find all the uproar over it very amusing, especially when you consider some of the shows that are on TV right now. It just confirms my opinion that The X-Files was ahead of it's time. The makeup for this episode was amazing. If the Peacock family had looked any more or any less deformed it woudn't have had the same impact. Also, the writing was fantastic! How they came up with these stories week after week I will never know. This episode was definately one of the most unforgettable of the whole series.
