    Re: TV, or not TV, that is the question

    I was always more of a fan of the creature feature of the week episodes than the main story arc. But the wife and I will give this a shot.

    Seriously disturbing and messed up episode and maybe my favorite of the ones that don't follow the main arc.
    Yes I remember that, and I wish I didn't. The dolly.....JFC. That sh* is pushing the edge NOWADAYS on networks....

    Was timely and hilarious.
    The clip made the 30 For 30 Four Falls Of Buffalo. As it should have.

    But that ep overall...so much depth to why the Smoking Man is what he is.

    I'd remember the ep if I saw a recap, etc. Last year or so I burned through the series on Netflix. Mostly just to see the Smoking Man ep where he rips the Bills. That was a fun ep.

    They were fun.


    Wasn't there one that looked a little like Garth from Wayne's World?

    Remember the episode "Home?"

    -shudder-

    Edit: crap. Just wiki'd. They are dead. Forgot about that, since that was during the bad years/finish of the X-Files and Lone Gunmen spinoff.

    To be honest, I don't recall the lone gunmen...

    When the guy brought Mulder to the paranoid people, were you hoping it was the Lone Gunmen? I really hope they come back......

    Point is, if it sucks after another episode or two, I'll simply move on with my life and forget about it.

    Fridays were all about dinner, getting baked and the X-Files. Was the only show that I've ever made plans with friends around.

    We had a blast with it for a few years.
