I finished the mythology episodes. I actually thought the finale was decent, but I thought they wouldn't really solve anything. I think Gibson Praise was underutilized throughout the series and in the finale. I don't know why they didn't bring back Jeremiah Smith.
I also think the Africa episodes went nowhere. I think that had a lot of potential.
The first four or so season were great when it came to the mythology episodes. I thought the middle seasons dragged, but the eighth season was great. It may have been my favorite season. The ninth season wasn't very good.
I'm going to randomly go through the standalone episodes now. I saw most of the first season, and just watched the one with Peter Boyle which was phenomenal.
He was in like half of them in the 8th season, though he was still a major storyline plot. Ninth season he only appeared in the finale. Then the whole storyline was on that stupid baby that Scully wouldn't give up for anything until she just randomly took Spender's word and said whatever I'll give it to some random family.
Has anyone really followed the show? I just started watching it on Netflix. I think I'm 16 episodes in. Some really good, some bad. Im not sure if ill be able to make it through the series. I think my main interest in the show has to be with mulder and scully, both of whom i think are written and acted extremely well. Sometimes the storyline is a hit sometimes its not.
Anyone else watch or used to watch this show?
Have almost all of them on dvd. My favorite episodes
The Jersey Devil (misleading title but still good)
Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose
Jose Chung's From Outer Space

At some points it did seem to drag on.

I actually liked the first 5-6 seasons and then thought they really dropped off after that point.
