This is it. The final week of the "X-Files Standalone Episode Countdown" and my favorite episode of all time. It may not be everyone's favorite, but it stands as one of those truly well-done episodes with the classic X-Files vibe. So, enough lead-up, let's get to it.
#1. 3x20 Jose Chung's "From Outer Space
I know how crazy this is going to sound, but this is a freakin' classic episode about an alien abduction. Charles Nelson Reilly plays Jose Chung, an author writing a "non-fiction, science fiction" book. Basically, it's a non-typical stereotypical alien abduction story with a lot of fun twists and turns plenty of chuckles throughout. The scene with the detective censoring himself is excellent. It also features a former wrestler-turned-governor and a game show host as men in black. This episode contains one of the greatest cast of characters and an alien autopsy...hosted by the Stupendous Yappi.
And there it is. I cannot say it enough, I have enjoyed this countdown and I really enjoyed going back and watching these classic episodes. I may do periodic X-Files episode posts just to keep it going. Now I need a new countdown idea to fill our Wednesdays with fun, knowledge and entertainment. I'm glad you enjoyed this one, have a good day.
