There are far worse episodes of X-Files out there..... and certain episodes of the series are so bad that their scant 40 odd minute runtime feels twice as long (Space, The Field Where I Died, 3, etc.)

Not to menton there are these things called SEASON 8 and SEASON 9....

Oh man, The Field Where I Died was the absolute worst episode of the show! So let me get this straight: Mulder was a little Jewish girl, and Scully was his (her?) father, and the Cigarette Man was a Nazi, despite the fact that based on his age, he would have already been born at that time in his current life.

No, the series finale was the absolute worst episode, followed by First Person Shooter. Field Where I Died was pretty bad, though.

First person shooter was actually kind of amusing, certainly not the *best* episode but entertaining. Honestly I was more or less ok with most dechovney era episodes, the series died for me after he left the series.

As far as personal favs... It's going to be hard since I haven't memorized very many episode names but...

The episode where a story about aliens being all over the negro-baseball legue back in the early 1900s was great. That episode had a lot of heart.

I liked the christmas episode where Mulder drags Scully to a haunted house.

off the top of my head, those are my top two.

I liked the finale, but I'm with you on First Person Shooter. That was atrocious- I don't know if they were supposed to look cool in those outfits with the guns, but they were retarded looking.
And I know it's probably too easy to pick on the first season, but I would also say The Jersey Devil and Space sucked really hard. Also, the episode "3" from season 2. Man, it's fun pointing out X-Files' failings!

Worst episodes: Aubrey, Teso Dos Bichos, Space, Kill Switch. I also hated First Person Shooter. And Triangle, except for the very end.

Best episode: Memento Mori

All personal opinions

C'mon people, the choice for best episode is clear: Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose

Nothing else is even close!

Good call. The Darin Morgan Quadrilogy are the show's finest hours:

Humbug
Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose
War of the Coprophages
Jose Chung's "From Outer Space"

And of course his two Millennium episodes are closely related:

Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me
Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense
