With the return of the X-Files in form of a miniseries, I was tempted to catch up on the original run of the show, since I had only seen the occasional episode in the late 90’s or early 00’s (my mom was a big fan). Being me, I already looked up the X-Files episodes ratings on trakt.tv to see if there’s something interesting about them, but I didn’t think there was. However, when I listened to the Incomparable talking about the show, I learned that apparently X-Files can be divided into the “myth arc” and regular, more stand-alone episodes. That’s when I realized I need to get my tv show analysis boots on and try to see what I could do. To my delight, I noticed that the appropriate Wikipedia article neatly marks the myth arc episodes, ready for plucking.
And then I started plucking.
