list your favorites

here are some of mine in no particular order

kill switch
soft light
pusher
clyde bruckman's final repose
fire
squeeze
darkness falls
monday
roland
theef
je souhaite
D.P.O. (feat jack black and giovanni ribisi!)
wetwired
chinga
kaddish
syzygy
bad blood
surekill
arcadia
small potatoes
first person shooter
born again

it's even money amongst many of these, by syzygy is probably
the most fun of any of 'em, with palpable drama to boot.

thread motivation: i've been increasingly sitting here after
work, and i've watched all the best ones over the last
couple days, but i still feel i'm missing a few

as should be obvious to anyone who knows even a few of
these, i clearly prefer MOTW episodes

The episode that sticks in mind is the one from the first
season, with the dude who stretch himself through tight
spaces. Scared the crap out of me as a kid....

which indeed you have mentioned.... it is called "Squeeze"

"Home" from the 4th season, I remember being particularly
creepy

i think the scariest one, and probably my favourite, is
"unruhe". with the inexplicable photographs and the torturer
escaping on stilts. was tense as fuck. there's a lot of good
ones tho

So many great episodes but the ones that stand out for me
are, yes indeed Clyde Bruckman, and also Jose Chung's From
Outer Space. Almost on the same level is Hollywood AD,
written and directed by Duchovny. Oh yeah and The Post
Modern Prometheus.

And of course all the mythology arc episodes, it goes
without saying. Black oil, clones, bees, saucers, hybrids.

gunmen's funeral. poor show, x files

Badlaa (got my first blowy and this was on in the night

yes, already rewatched that, but missed that one.

blowy, blowjob? that's a strange coincidence, we watched
"squeeze" after my first one, and i'd not seen it before

that's a goodun, yeah. pretty gruesome way to go out, poor
stretch armstrong must've looked like strawberry jam
afterwards

i kinda wanted a stretch armstrong but i wanted a master
shredder more and then i got a master shredder and his hed
fell off. i complained to my mum that none of the turtles
did that. age: 4-5

i would actually google "best x-files episodes" "best
x-files monster of the week" etc. and most of the lists were
pretty flaccid, offtm; squarely redundant cruft. now, in
this thread, i've brain-dumped everything i had at the end
of a run. the rest are getting filled in by everyone else.

so, instead of stupid SEO-sopping crap clickbait top ten
articles that don't actually tell you the fucking any thing
you wanted at all, i have this thread, now, to find the
right x-files episode. thank you so much, xltronic crowd

Are there any good MOTW episodes from s7 onwards? Dropped
out of watching the show then both when it was on originally
and on my rewatch recently.

the one with the moss men down in florida who are the old
conquistadors that found the fountain of youth and the one
with the bugs that are released when a tree is downed and
they come out at night and eat people.
