I was up till 5:30 this morning watching a pretty fascinating documentary on the Crips and the Bloods in South Central, LA. It doesn't tell you anything new if you're familiar with the situation (well, I grew up many miles north, in Washington State, but we did have a large contingency of Crips to deal with in my neck of the woods, plus I was totally into the world of west coast gangster rap, and things like the LA riots are still quite fresh in my mind), and to be honest, I don't even know the name (I tuned in as it was starting), but it was extremely well made and I'm fairly certain that they'll show it again soon. Seemed like a fairly big production.

I'm onto SVU season 2 now. I just watched an episode that starred ~10 year old Hayden Panettiere (the Cheerleader from Heroes).

The Simpsons has been really good lately. I hadn't really watched it in a while, but I've watched the last few episodes on hulu and really enjoyed them.

Everyone knows my intense love for NYC cable access, but sometimes, nothing beats the stuff from home...

X-Files episodes you should watch:

Season 3, Episode 12: War of the Coprophages
Season 4, Episode 11: El Mundo Gira

X-Files is at its best when it's funny. The coprophage episode is the best from the show (maybe my favorite episode of anything ever on TV?) and El Mundo Gira is a nice Spanish soap opera spoof without hitting you over the head with the joke.

All of the X-Files is now on Netflix streaming so go for it.

Dude, you mention must watch X-Files episodes from season 3 and you fail to list Jose Chung's From Outer Space? Dude...

Also, the last episode of that same season, Talitha Cumi, is simply one of the best cliffhangers for any show, ever.

Back to Jose Chung, not sure if it's available for instant streaming, but his appearance in Millennium is also worth catching; was the first to goof on Scientologists many years before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon, and I dare say that no one has done it better.

It wasn't the first but it was one of the better ones.  The character that Charles Nelson Reilly played in both appearances was based largely upon Forrest J. Ackerman, former literary agent to Ron Hubbard and just about every other major SciFi writer and publisher of "Famous Monsters of Filmland."

oh shit we're talking x-files now? cause LEONARD BETTSMOTHER FUCKER

also:

musing of a cigarette smoking man
bad blood
post modern prometheus
fire
gender bender
clyde bruckman's final response
triangle
the unnatural
dreamland part 1 and 2

those are the ones i can name off the top of my head also the one with the carnival of circus freaks but i dont remember that episode's name.


dmauro, after you get to the end of season 7(well even at that season the quality is iffy) skip straight to the 2 part series finale. seriously 8 and 9 are just full of john dogget overstaying his welcome and monica reyes just sucking so fucking much in every scene she's in. also there is one episode where lucy lawless is a half alien human hybrid soldier who karate chops a guy's head off and you begin to wonder "god am i even watching the same show anymore?"

Leonard Betts wasn't that good. It was a decent episode, but it didn't really stand out in any way except that it was funny that they used Paul McCrane possibly as an homage to that unforgettable scene in Robocop when his face melts.

Musing of a Cigarette Smoking Man was just a lore episode that didn't really give all that much, and Gender Bender was almost funny, but didn't quite get good enough.

For me, the X-Files pretty much ended after the 5th season/the movie. The show kinda lost its way after blowing such a big wad.
