I watched the series until Robert Patrick joined, and my all time favorites have always been the 'quirky' ones that are almost self parody.

Jose Chung's From Outerspace is a classic. Not only does it feature Charles Nelson Reilly, but Jesse Ventura and Alex Trebek as real Men in Black? An alien autopsy? Cherry pie? I can watch this episode over and over again.

Postmodern Prometheus is a nother classic. The episode in it's entirety is OK, but the ending by far makes the entire episode worthwhile. You'll never be able to hear 'Walking in Memphis' again without thinking of this episode.

Jose Chung's From Outer Space - hysterically funny. Charles Nelson Reilly is inspired casting.
Bad Blood - also very funny
Conduit - "I want to Believe"
Dreamland/Dreamland II - Michael Mckean is the saving grace of this two part Season 6 episode
Closure - Wonderful conclusion to the saga of Mulder's sister.

Was going to point out Bad Blood and Conduit were 2 different episodes, but I saw the html error when I quoted.

I have a question. I am working my way through season 8 and have a question about Redrum. The one with Joe Morton living life backwards.

spoiler?..

They catch the killer before the killer gets to his wife. Thus changing history, meaning Morton was never convicted of the murder. Also, reversing time so his life reverts back to normal. So why is he in prison at the end of the episode?

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose
Revelations
Pusher
Jose Chung's From Outer Space

Season 3 was incredible.

Season 5 and beyond, not so good.

Because he admitted to Doggett that he illegally tampered with evidence to get a conviction of the killer's brother. Doggett did say that he would be compelled to inform the authorities. He was given a second chance to save his wife, but he had to pay a price. He went to jail in the end for what he did as a prosecutor, not for killing his wife. He was paying the price.

The two high points of the X-Files, as far as the recurring government storyline goes, are the:

"Duane Barry(S.2)/ Ascension(S.2)/ One Breath(S.2)" Trilogy

and the

"Anasazi(S.2)/ The Blessing Way(S.3)/ Paper Clip(S.3)" Trilogy


The best "monster" episode is "Irresistible(S.2)"

The most emotional episode is "Memento Mori(S.4)"

The best miscellaneous episode is "Jose Chung's From Outer Space(S.3)"

The funniest episode is "Bad Blood(S.5)"

Those two trilogy arcs are so great I'd have paid to see them in theatres.

Wow, its been a long time since I talked about the X-Files. i was an avid fan from season 2 - 5, but got bored with it. However, my favorite ep was called, I believe, "War of the Coprophages," where Scully's explanations all turn out to be true. Very funny.
