Quote:I preferred the stand alone ones too because the Mythology ones got too convoluted. And I use "Mythology" for the bigger picture plotline of every series. I almost forgot Chris Carter coined the phrase.
Did he coin mythology or "mytharc"?
Good point I guess he called it mytharc but it is now also known as mythology episodes. There is also a term "chris Carter Effect" which means the mythology has gotten so convoluded it seems unlikely it will ever be resolved or explained in any sensible way like how Lost ended up.
