'X-File On Main St.'
It's a corny pun, a play on the title of The Rolling Stones' 1972 double album 'Exile On Main St.' But I got to thinking... what if the whole of The X-Files was packaged as an 18-track double album? What tracks would be used to best represent the series? Which ones would make the cut? And with over 200 episodes and two movies to choose from, which 186 would fail to make the grade?
On the right hand side of this site you can find a "tracklisting" of 18 "tracks", or episodes... 18 that represent the run of the series, chiefly told through its highs. They're not necessarily the greatest 18 episodes the series ever did, or even my personal favourites... they're a mixture of great instalments and important editions, the ones that pushed the envelope of the series, or changed the direction of it in significant ways.
I hope you'll enjoy looking back over the 18 episodes I've chosen, and have fun debating which ones you would have chosen in their place. You can also check out the great new store I've created with Amazon's aid and relive the series yourself.
A guide to the new 2016 revival will appear in the "Worst To Best" articles at the Main Anorak Zone Site.
