31 Days of Halloween, Day 25: “Roadrunners” – Season 8

Synopsis | Scully evades Doggett’s help in pursuing a dangerous cult that worships a slug-like creature.
Trivia | Some cameramen freaked out during the production of “Roadrunners” due to its graphic nature. The parasitic creature was designed to look like a banana slug, and was created via animatronics.
Quotes | Scully: “Look, I, uh… I wanted to apologize. I… I left you out of this case, and that was a mistake on my part. It was almost a fatal mistake.” Doggett: “It was. You screwed up.” Scully: “And I won’t do it again.” Doggett: “I appreciate it.”

31 Days of Halloween, Day 24: “Patience” – Season 8

Synopsis | Scully and Doggett investigate several killings involving a terrifying bat-like creature.
Trivia | “Patience” is the first episode of the series to not feature David Duchovny’s name in the opening title sequence; before this, he is absent in only two episodes out of 163. The human-bat hybrid is inspired by the comic book villain, Man-Bat – one of the arch-nemeses of Batman.
Quotes | Doggett: “The guys upstairs were making some noise about this case – about what’s in our field report. Scully: “Yeah. You’ll get used to it. I, uh… I never had a desk in here, Agent Doggett, but I’ll see that you get one.”

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.

Trivia: “Without”

Most of “Without” was filmed in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, during a massive heat wave: daytime temperature averaged around 125-130 degrees, and even at night the temperature did not get below 100 degrees.
