The second X-Files movie has been talked about on and off in various ways, shapes and forms since the first one came out. Every few months there's tidbits saying "it'll depend on the creative team's availabilities" etc and that it will be a one-off "supernatural thriller". I expect if it ever does get made it would have to be simultaneously a supernatural thriller and a continuation of the mythology arc, otherwise fans would cry and scream and bite a bit.

Let's just hope it's not THE X-FILES 2000

My favorite is the baseball one about Josh Exeley, the alien that ran away to play baseball. Exeley was modeled after my favoritre baseball player, Josh Gibson, who played for the Hempstead Grays (Negro Leagues), the team that Exeley's Roswell Grays got the name from. At the very end of the episode, Mulder's wearing a Hempstead Grays jersey with Gibson's name and number, 20, on the back. You can get that jersey for about $120.

I also liked the Bermuda Triangle one were Mulder gets trapped in a parallel time/reality circa WWII, and Scully and the Lone Gunman guys have to go find him. The wya that episode was shot, with the camera following the characters around and cut to make the scenes seen seamless, was pretty cool - they got the idea from Hitchcock.

And I like the silly episodes, like the "Roswell! Roswell!" one with the writer and the aliens abducting airforce guys posing as aliens, the trailer park vampire one with Luke Owen, and the one with mutant who loves Cher that's in b/w.

Sorry, I don't remember names of the episodes.

Well if you want to know the names for the sake of it:

The Unnatural: baseball story directed by Duchovny
Triangle: the bermuda triangle story obviously :) directed by Carter
Jose Chung's From Outer Space: about the writer which is my favourite episode written by Darren Morgan
The Post Modern Prometheus: the Cher one also directed by Carter

they were all pretty cool episodes

I didn't really like unruhe all that much, I thought it was a bit of a weak episode. It did have some okay moments though, like the tall legs bit.

Hmmm... I've always really liked Unruhe. But that might be because I first watched it when I was OBSESSED with Schizophrenia. So my like might be more akin to a residual effect from that.

Right now, Scully has just found out about her cancer. "I'm sorry. You have something I need." (Leonard Betts)

my main problem with unruhe is that it seemed to be a bit of an idea that had to be stretched and padded out to make up a full episode length. There are a few others like that. It has good elements like I said, but when compared with the best episodes of the series, it is weak.

I love that line in the Leonard Betts episode, that's classic. The writers seemed a bit smug about how clever it was on the DVD special features though.

Still, it's a classic omen of things to come.

I've noticed there are quite a few episodes with human "freaks" of nature who need to consume something of the human body in order to survive.

Anyone else noticed that trend (no need to ask mjs since I'd assume a "yes" will be coming from his direction without delay)?

Sophist,
Yes,
I agree with you. There seemed to be a lot of the freaks who needed human body parts to survive. I also mention Hungry, Leonard Betts, Tooms, and Too Shy I believe.

PS: I hope they do make another X-Files movie but would prefer it to be a stand alone episode style rather than more mythology stuff.

I heard that's what they're considering.

*goes and watches How the Ghosts Stole Christmas in lieu of Christmas even though it'll be out of order with the Files marathon*

Just rewatched Tempus Fugit & Max again, it's like a mini-movie, I love it.

HUMBUG IS MY FAVORITE! I'm completely obsessed with the parasitic twin villain! I think it's named Leonard.
