The X-FilesCan you hear the eerie music becoming louder and louder? That's the sound of the X-Files movie being one step closer to being released on the big screens this summer (more than likely on July 25)! Being an X-Files and a spoilers fan, I jumped up and down a few times while humming the show's theme this morning when I stumbled on a SCI FI Wire article that offered just what I was looking for: spoilers about the upcoming X-Files movie!

(S01E15) So, how creepy is that opening scene in the hospital? Yikes. Scully insists that a fellow FBI agent, who was shot during a bank robbery, be revived. As the doctors are hitting him with the defibrillator, the dead body on the next bed is bouncing with the electric shocks. The dead body is that of the bank robber. This is the only good part of this episode, by the way.

When the FBI agent wakes up, he's not himself. He obviously has the mind of the bank robber but the body of the agent. Since Scully is the one who shot the robber, methinks she's in a bit of danger.

The X-Files: Gender Bender

x-files; gender bender(S01E14) I can honestly say I had never, ever seen this episode of The X-Files. I'm not sure why I passed it over or missed it over the years, but it was new to me. And I totally loved it! Oh, and Nic Lea, who plays villain Alex Krycek in subsequent seasons, makes an appearance in this episode as 'Michael', a near-victim of the Monster of the Week.

The opening scene of Gender Bender made me wonder what time of year this episode aired. It opens with sex, after all. But, alas, it was not created for ratings as it originally aired on January 21, 1994.

(S01E08) The teaser at the beginning of this episode is excellent. We're up in Alaska, at the Arctic Ice Core Project where the scientists are either dead or out of their minds. One guy is shirtless and bloody and he transmits a message to HQ, repeating, "We're not who we are.". He's attacked by another guy. They wrestle, point guns at each other, and then end up killing themselves.

(S01E05)  Before I get into this episode, let me just say that season one of The X-Files is phenomenal. I had forgotten how many terrific episodes were packed into the first season. Chris Carter really seemed to have this show down solid right out of the gate. He set up the series with aliens, government cover-ups and monsters; and episode five of season one introduced us to the agents.

We learn that Mulder lives and breathes his work. He and Scully travel up to Atlantic City, New Jersey, where Mulder butts heads with the local PD, who have jurisdiction over the case of a Bigfoot-looking creature that is killing homeless people. Mulder thinks it's the famous Jersey Devil, which chewed a man's arm off in the 1960s. He chooses to stay in Atlantic City for the weekend to look for the 'devil', while Scully returns to Washington, D.C. for her godson's birthday.

The X-Files: Conduit

the x-files; fox mulder; dana scully(S01E04) This episode gets back on track to the prevailing story for season one: we're reminded that Scully is assigned to debunk The X-Files. We also return to the aliens-on-earth mythology storyline, complete with possible government coverup. We also learn that, unlike the first episode of the season, alien abductions aren't that easy to verify. The episode casts doubt on the existence of aliens and shows us just how complicated The X-Files can be. However, the point of the episode is to show us that the abduction of Mulder's sister is what drives him to investigate The X-Files. Unfortunately, it's all done in a rather boring and complicated episode.

The X-Files: Squeeze

eugene tooms(S01E03) Forget the werewolves, the green bugs, the camoflauge forest-dwellers, the inbred pig people and the aliens. You, Eugene Tooms, are the scariest monster ever to grace The X-Files.

Squeeze is the first MOTW (Monster of the Week) episode of The X-Files and it's a doozy. The writers take us off the government-covers- up-aliens-on-earth storyline and focus on a major freak who has ten-inch long fingers and rips the livers out of five victims every 30 years. The experts at The X-Files wiki say FOX requested the script change-up away from aliens. Apparently, the idea came when one of the writers saw an air duct outside their office and wondered whether someone could sneak up inside it. Tooms' obsession with liver came from creator Chris Carter's recent trip to France where he ate a lot of foie gras. That, and the liver is just a funny organ.
