X-Files has been a constant stream of entertainment for my family since the series began in the early 90’s. I picked up this undying interest quickly when I was 5 years old and the main lady had red hair like me. Here’s a list of fun, ridiculous and strange X-Files episodes for those who haven’t even ever.

1. X-Cops

Season 7 Episode 12
What seems to be a typical episode of Cops.

X-Cops

2. How the Ghosts Stole Christmas

Season 6 Episode 6
A haunted house on Christmas Eve with scheming ghosts!

Bad Blood
Arcadia

3. Arcadia

Season 5 Episode 12
Mulder does a bad thing and the partners recount the incident—very differently.

5. The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

Season 11 Episode 4
Twilight Zone, parallel universes, alien encounters, and the possible origin of The X-Files. But it could all be lies…

Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster

6. Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster

Season 10 Episode 3
The perspective of mundane human existence from a were-lizard.

7. Triangle

Season 6 Episode 3
Special directing style, time travel, and a big jazzy brawl.

8. Sunshine Days

Season 9 Episode 18
No Mulder or Scully but a Brady Bunch obsession.

9. Rain King

Season 6 Episode 8
A small town love story.


This list is no doubt missing great episodes and I will continuously update when I think of them.
