A second X-Files movie will be made sooner or later!

I lost interest in the show long time ago when it seemed to deal with nothing but aliens and government conspiracies. When it focused on other paranormal and supernatural topics, it was more interesting.

I remember in 8th grade a friend of mine and I were the only two who watched it. So every Monday morning we'd show up in class and all we talked about most of the day was Friday night's episode. I thinke we bugged the hell out of Ms. McKinley (our teacher) and half the students.

The only good thing about Agent Dogget was my sister and I hysterically making fun of the way he'd say things like "eem" instead of "him".

One of the only more recent episodes (that is, before the show went off the air) that I really liked was the episode dealing with the guy who had some advanced form of telekinesis, where he could actually make objects, people, or places materialize out of thin air. His main deal was he made the interior (and exterior as well I think) of his home look just like the Bradys' home. I remember at the beginning of the episode it opened with two teenage boys who had broken a window with their baseball or football, and when they broke into the house to get their lost item, they were joking about the show, pointing out the ugly horse statue Mike gave Carol, the vase Bobby and Peter broke while playing ball in the house, and other things. I think someone else came up to the house, or else one of the two boys did, and said it looked full of people. Mainly, it was full of the entire Brady clan, including Alice.

Scully and Doggett (I think) talked to him, and to prove his power, he "transported" them to the middle of a vast field with a mountain in the background, and a lake somewhere nearby.

The new movie will not focus on the convoluted alien mythology from the end of the series, and the first movie, which means it WILL be something from the standalone episodes, or something new that isn't so sillily conspiratorial.

I hope Clyde Bruckman makes an appearance.

"Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose"

Skeptical of a famous psychic’s predictions regarding the murder of several prognosticators, Mulder instead finds someone who he believes truly can predict the future. Catching the killer could prove difficult, though, particularly if the murderer can also see into his future.

Guest starring: Peter Boyle as Clyde Bruckman

This episode won two Emmys. One was for the writing, and the other was awarded to Peter Boyle for his guest appearance in this episode.
This episode was named the 10th greatest episode in TV history by TV Guide.

X-PHILE!
I stopped watching because after season 6 it got REEEEELY guefy. 3-5 were SO GOOD! GOD I loved it.

Yes, Clyde Bruckman's Final repose was easily one of the best episodes. I also really liked Small Potatoes and Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man. Jose Chung's From Outter Space was also good.

I like to use the metaphor of X-Files when talking about Heroes. Mr. Bennet was CSM, his white haired turtle-neck clad superior was Well Manicured Man, the episode where you learn Bennet's back story was Musings, you get the idea. I do love the first episode of Heroes when you Meet Mr. Bennet and he's all "Suresh is probably a common name where you're from, like Smith...or Anderson"

I had X-Files trading cards ::DORK:: ^_^

I think I still have an Agent Scully sitting around somewhere. Maybe?

Best episode of X-Files ever is clearly "Improbable". Burt Reynolds FTW.

Okay, so that's a lie. But it's probably the best one sans-Mulder.

Saying it's the best sans Mulder is not saying very much at all. I don't think I saw it.

Watched episodes here and there growing up, but I recently bought the complete box set for about AU$300 from Amazon UK :D I watched it all the way through and loved (almost) every minute of it. (A show with that many episodes is bound to have some duds :P )

I know it isn't as funny as some of the other funny episodes, but I was always a big fan of "Bad Blood". The shoelaces thing was great.

The Lone Gunmen were great too. I actually bought the dvd of their spin-off series :oops:

If Clyde Bruckman is in the new movie, I'd like to see an appearance by The Stupendous Yappi as well.
