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?

This is my all-time favorite show. I watched one episode from season one, but didn't become a fan until season 3. Great stuff, some of the best sci-fi in TV history, I'd say. I've tried to go back and watch from the beginning recently, but there are a few episodes that you really never need to see again. On the other hand, episodes like Squeeze, The Host, Home, and Leonard Betts are classics. The mythology was fascinating, but,like some shows, the mystery outshines the reveal. (I think I've given up on Lost in season 2 because of this) I liked the movie. Saw them both in the theater.
