We haven't had an X-Files thread yet, so I figure we're due!

Did you watch it? Were you addicted to it? Did you like the 1998 film? Do you feel the mythology made sense? Did you like Mulder and Scully as a romantic couple or would you have preferred they stayed Platonic? Do you think the Smoking Man was well handled as a concept? What bugged you about the series?

I was a diehard fan and I own every season. Mind you I caught it after it was off the air in reruns. I think the first 3 seasons are some of my favorite television ever made. No show has ever grabbed me like Season 1 of the X-Files. I didn't really care about the Mulder/Scully situation one way or another. What really grabbed me about the show was Mulder's quest to find his sister and the alien conspiracy which I felt was set up really well early on and then turned into a convoluted mess that never resolved to my satisfaction. Easily my favorite sci-fi series of all time and one of my favorite shows of all time period but it definitely had some serious flaws as well as strengths.
