It's probably my favorite. What are some other favorites of yours?

I just finished Netflixing the whole first season, and I have to agree with those... "Ice" is a classic (it feels like there have been movies based on it). "Deep Throat" is also great.

I don't know what my favorite episodes are, but over the summer I bought seasons one through six and watched all of'em before cooling off on the X-Files when school started back. Season seven worth getting?

I bought the whole series a long time ago (2 years) for extremely cheap on ebay and I am just now getting into it. I'm in the first season, last disc about to watch 'Tooms' the second episode that featues the man who needs a liver and a genetic mutation in order to keep on living well over the exceeded limit of a regular person. I've seen episodes here and there but this is really the first time I'm going start to finish so I'm dedicating some time to finishing the whole thing completely in the upcoming months.

Season 1 and 2 are great, but season 3 is when shit hits the fucking fan.

Just finished season 1's finale. Quite a nice wrap up. Wondering where it goes from here. Scully I hope gains a little bit more faith in the supernatural. I can't see why not, she has a cross around her neck so she has to gain some faith in the unknown after seeing what was in that flask. Going to go out to get some mexican food and then put in season 2 disc 1

Just finished 'One breath' and I'm glad scully is okay. Good to see the lone gunman again. This is one of my favorite episodes so far but I really want to know more about CSM and the mythology behind the whole show. I'm becoming exceeding anxious about this show which isn't really that new to me.

I've been meaning to post here since I started re-watching the series weeks ago, right now im on the last disc of S6, and I feared that it wouldn't hold up as well and boy was I wrong.

I'm sure it owes to a lot of shows older than Twin Peaks but that's the one it comes to mind more often, be it in tone or humor (not to mention the many twin peaks ppl that have appeared), also forgot how bleak it was, many times the 'bad guys' get away with it, something that we don't see in the billion csi/cop-tech shows, and the acting is top notch from everyone, the guest roles are spot on, always casting the right ppl.

The standout for me right now is the wonderful Folie À Deux from season 5, in particular there is this phrase "it hides in the light" that gives me chills, it feels wonderfully strange and something that coulda come out of David Lynch's mind.
