Exclamation The X-Files?

I am jaw dropped at the fact that there's no X-Files thread here.
The only one I could find is this...

Do any fans know where the movie is best watched in relation to the seasons?
That's not even an X-Files thread, It's just a random question which can easily be found on google.

I'm certain that if there's fans of TFTC and The Twilight Zone on Cult Labs then there has to be X-Files fans so i'm starting this thread

I enjoyed the X-Files for the first 4 seasons and then lost interest, i felt it had run out of one off storylines and the main plot was going nowhere, far too many questions and a lack of answers.

I picked up series 1 on dvd a couple of years ago and enjoyed it again, i haven't followed it up yet though. Its one of those things i would like to buy but its not essential .

Oh man, I am a huge fan.
It took me about two years but I have all the seasons + the two films.

The story line is great to follow when you watch all the seasons in order for the first time but now I just go back and watch random episodes.

I've really been meaning to pick up The Lone Gunman spin off series because those guys have got to be my favourite characters. It's so expensive everywhere though!

Hmm, I don't really know which I prefer. I think they're both good in their own way.

A wonderful series with some great storylines and many great individual episodes. To my mind one of the finest television drama series of all time.

I saw yours in your pictures on the collection thread. You have those nice fat box's, I like the look of those. I prefer mine though...just in ordinary sized DVD cases, 1 case per season. Saves so much damn space compared to some of those other box's i've seen.

XFiles is the greatest ever though. It will always beat Twin Peaks
