Customer Review

on 17 June 2011
This selection by Chris Carter is presumably intended as a gift to anyone too young to have watched the show when it aired, courtesy of some older wiser admirer keen to pass the torch.

The trouble is, there were better episodes that could have been chosen. Some are certainly astute choices, such as the Pilot and the tragicomic Clyde Bruckmann episode from S.3; but that sea monster thing from S.2? The episode based on Bogdanovich's Mask in S.5? As a fan who recently trawled through all nine years on DVD, often watching several episodes per day, I feel sure a better selection could have been made, even up to the last three seasons. I happen to think S.7 better than S.6 and there are many fine episodes in the Doggett/Reyes era.

So which would I have chosen? Nine maybe, one from each season: "Pilot" (the rapport established); "Aubrey" (very scary); "Clyde Bruckmann's Final Repose" (very moving); "Paper Hearts" (ref Mulder's sister); "The End" and "The Beginning" (Gibson Praise double-bill); "Theef" (grisly folk magic), "Vienen" (black oil rig) and "Improbable" (the one with God in it).

Only scratches the surface, but comedy and horror in abundance.
No substitute for living the story in full.
