X-Files is on Netflix

Postby Mishrak » Mon Apr 06, 2015 2:14 pm UTC

So I sort of nerded out hardcore when I saw this pop up on Netflix this last week. This show scared the friggin crap out of me as a kid but now I find myself particularly enjoying it again. I forgot how good of a rapport there was between Scully and Mulder. David Duchovny was brilliant. Is anyone else doing a reboot binge watching of this or am I the only one?

Also sorry if there's another X-Files thread. I couldn't find one. Please combine it with that one if necessary.

I never really watched it when it was on air, and I don't really get the appeal now either. My husband loves it, and I saw several episodes from the first season and one from the second season that he recommended, and all of them felt pretty ridiculous and unexciting. I'll give it one last chance - a friend recommended I watch "Triangle", from season 6. If that's good, maybe I'll watch some more episodes. But so far I've been completely and utterly Meh about the show. Maybe it just didn't survive the test of time very well, but as I said - I didn't really like it when it aired either.

Re-watching it on DVD (started just before it all ended up on Netflix, so eh). Nearly done the end of Season 7. Season 7 was a handful of great episodes and a giant stack of crap. Wow. They really, really should have ended in Season 6. Holy crap, guys.

... and we're still watching. Two seasons to go!

Was this off of Netflix at one point? I renember watching it on netflx around 2010 or 2011. My least favorite seasons are 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9. 2 probably had some of the worst episodes in the entire run, but it gets better starting around Season 3.
