The thing is when mom and dad first met in college, before they were even dating, they used to watch the X-Files together. So if it were not for the show, there might not be any marriage, we might not have been adopted, and thus no urban hounds. Anyway you can see why the show is super important in our house.
Mom feels we should celebrate the premiere, on September 10th every year. First, us pugs put on our X-Files shirts, courtesy of Cafe Press (whatever you love they can make a shirt to celebrate it).
Then mom makes us some sort of sunflower seed treat, if you know the X-Files you know that agent Mulder loves sunflower seeds.

While you eat your cookies snuggle up with your parents and enjoy an X-Files Marathon. Mom wants your 'rents to know that if they join Hulu plus or Netflix they can watch every x-file on line for free (plus tons of other shows) and with a Roku box they can watch them on the TV. Mom says the Roku is the best thing ever.
Anyway here is mom's expert 10 essential X-Files Episode Guide-(Expert because she has seen the show a million times). They are in order of season, not favorites. (Note: If you are not a giant nerd please stop reading because you will be bored silly).
Pilot-Obviously an important episode because this is where it all started. Plus if you are a huge geek like mom you will enjoy the fact that the actor who plays the werewolf Oz on Buffy The Vampire Slayer is in the pilot.
The Host-Eeek! This episode is kinda gross, mom always thinks of it when she is brushing her teeth, but its still one of the best ones and it takes place in Newark, NJ. Not far from where we live now. Hopefully, we don't run into any human sized Fluke worms.
Irresistible -This killer in this episode is so creepy! Mom showed it to a friend of hers who kept her eyes squeezed shut for the entire episode. When the killer wants to shampoo Scully's hair it gives us the shivers, Scully does have great hair though.
Humbug-This is probably Mom's favorite episode. The circus setting is pretty and neat and its probably the funniest episode. Plus Mr. Knutt, the dwarf manager of the trailer motel Mulder and Scully stay in, is played by Michael J. Anderson's is played by the mysterious backwards talking dwarf form one of mom's other favorite shows, Twin Peaks.
Clyde Buckman's Final Repose- A psychic who can only see how people will die. Another super funny episode, plus Scully gets a dog although sadly his tenure on the show is short lived.
Jose Chung's From Outer Space-In our house we like the funny episodes the best, and this one is very funny.
Home-A creepy family of in-bred hillbillies with a Texas Chainsaw Masacre style dream home.
Elegy-A bowling alley manager has a vision of a murdered women, one of a group of young women who have been killed. The prime suspect is an autistic man who works at the bowling alley and Mulder and Scully have to look for the real culprit. Mom really like the performance of the actor who plays the man with autism in the episode. She works with a lot of people with autism, and says this is a spot on performance.
Bad Blood-Vampires that just want to live like normal people, except for the one who has seen to many Vampire movies, another funny episode.
Signs and Wonders- The X-Files explores religion and snake handling! Plus the minister is super creepy.
Note-In our opinion its best not to watch any X-Files after season 7, 8 and 9 ugh!
