Anyway, isn't there an episode that was banned after only its premiere showing?

"Home"

Season Four, Episode Two

Just started watching the 'Aubrey' episode. I spotted John Locke (terry o'quinn)

hey silias, how bout waiting until you've finished watching a whole season or maybe even the whole series before telling us about it, huh?

this is not your personal twitter/tell-us-every-single-thing-you-do service. no one cares that you recognized an actor who has no doubt appeared in MANY television series (amazing!) as you started watching an episode. just wait til you've seen at least HALF a season, and tell us what you think. can you do that? or at LEAST wait til something interesting/pivotal happens. something that people would actually have an opinion on, or you can offer some insight about other than "hey look it's that guy i know! look everyone! everyone look it's someone i recognize from TV! and he's on TV again! wowwwwww."

thanks

Finished the series and man what an TV experience. Really worth it and some great pay offs in the end. Although the finale did remind me a tiny bit of the finale of 'seinfeld'. I have been cursing at Director Kersh throughout the series and when he helps in the end, it almost didn't feel right. The ending of the finale really felt like the best way to end the series. I LOVED SEASON 7 though..I don't care what any of the haters say...Still my favorite episode is Chung's outer space episode.

Continuing my rewatch of the series, we now have a strong new contender for Worst Episode of All Time: "First Person Shooter"!  I can't think of a single thing the episode got right, from the characterizations of the main characters to the vaguest basics of how computers work.  A good drinking game if you want to kill yourself would be to take a shot any time a character misuses a general computing term, really tough concepts like "download".  Krista Allen's ass could not save this one, try though it did.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

You're getting closer to "Fight Club." That's easiest the worst by far.

"Fight Club" is not good, but also (I would argue) not among the very worst. That is a very special category.

Thanks for that description, Polka. The horrifying images from that episode all came rushing back. This is the one where Mulder and Scully run around like they're playing laser tag, right?

This does spotlight two elements that will sink an X-Files episode:

- datedness
- putting scully and/or mulder in artificial peril

Anyway, my choice for the worst is and will always be "Space." It's a massacre of an episode on every level.

I can't believe that movie sucked so bad. What a wasted opportunity.

The rationalization was that they wanted to give a new generation of viewers a gentle introduction to the series, and then ramp it up with future movies. But they may not get that chance. It's really sad.

I guess by "gentle introduction" they meant "vaguely interesting, stretched-out, clearly below-average X-Files episode that somehow found itself on a movie screen."

I get the rationalization. When I heard the movie was going to be a "monster of the week" style story I got excited. Those are the episodes that hold up. It was just a lame story they decided to tell that had little to do with the supernatural at all. I'm shocked that anyone read that script and went "YEA!"
