IndieWire: “Improbable” Included in “TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes” List

“Improbable” has been included in IndieWire’s “TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes” list. The publication calls the stand-alone episode “quirky with occasionally downright goofy moments courtesy of [Burt] Reynolds”.



Picture of the Day: Scully – “Lord of the Flies” (Season 9)

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).
