Season 6

31 Days of Halloween, Day 18: “Arcadia” – Season 6

Synopsis | Mulder and Scully go undercover, posing as a married couple, to investigate strange happenings in a planned suburban community.
Trivia | Originally, the main antagonist in “Arcadia” was an infamous individual who was terrorizing the neighborhood and becoming a sort of metaphorical bogeyman; eventually, the story was re-written to include an actual monster – a Tulpa creature. The crew members gave the creature a variety of nicknames: “Gumby on Steroids”, “Mr. Butterworth”, “Fecal Fred” and “Sh*t Monster”. The airing of “Arcadia” was delayed by two weeks due to monster-related special effects.
Quotes | Mulder: “You want to make that honeymoon video now?” Scully: “Rob and Laura Petrie?” Mulder: “Pee-trie.” Scully: “Mulder, if we ever go undercover again I get to choose the names, okay?”

31 Days of Halloween, Day 17: “Terms of Endearment” – Season 6

Synopsis | Mulder winds up pursuing a man whom he believes is actually a demon bent on fathering a child.
Trivia | Earlier versions of the script for “Terms of Endearment” were lighter on human interest and heavier on pure shock value. At some point, there was a birth to a serpent, not a demon baby. Interestingly, that bit is later recovered for the seventh season episode “Signs & Wonders” – a horrifying scene in which a woman gives birth to snakes.
Quotes | Scully: “Mulder, we are supposed to be doing background checks, not chasing X-Files.” Mulder: “Scully, Spender just round filed this case – it’s unconscionable.” Scully: “And what do you call rooting through his trash?”

Complete Episode List

Ten seasons and two hundred eight episodes.

All Nine Seasons Ranked (IMDb)

The discussion regarding the best seasons of a given show can be tiresome. At the end of the day, it is the series as a whole that matters. Still, if we do not take it too seriously, it can be a fun exercise.

With all 202 episodes taken into consideration, this is how the nine seasons of The X-Files are ranked – according to IMDb:
1. Season 6
2. Season 5
3. Season 3
4. Season 4
5. Season 8
6. Season 2
7. Season 7
8. Season 9
9. Season 1

There are very interesting revelations: Season 6 (a Los Angeles-based season) at number 1, fan-favorite Season 3 pushed to third place, Season 8 ahead of three “Mulder & Scully” seasons, and Season 9 beating Season 1 (even if by only a slight margin).

Trivia: Scully & Mulder to the Rescue

Scully rescues Mulder more times than he rescues her throughout the series. As for the movies, they are tied: he saves her in Fight the Future, and she saves him in I Want to Believe.
