The X-Files: yes.

For those out there who just aren’t getting the X-FILES revival, let me help you: it was the best show ever aired on television. Not network television. Any television. If you aren’t that familiar with it (or plain just don’t believe me), go to Netflix and stream these episodes, most of which don’t even involve the larger UFO-conspiracy stuff:

“Jose Chung’s From Outer Space” (Season 3)
“Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” (Season 3)
“Beyond the Sea” (Season 1)
“Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man” (Season 4)
“Elegy” (Season 4)
“The Post-Modern Prometheus” (Season 5)
“Bad Blood” (Season 5)
“Triangle” (Season 6)
“Humbug” (Season 2)

Worth it.

And for what it’s worth, the 6-episode “event series” is off to a great start – it lives and breathes exactly like the original run. Is it as good? Not quite. But then again, nothing is that good.
