At Flashbak: The Five Most Underrated Episodes of The X-Files' Final Two Seasons

In honor of The X-Files revival, my first Flashbak last week is called “Sunshine Days?” and remembers the best and most underrated episodes of the series final two years, the Doggett/Reyes era.

“Chris Carter’s The X-Files (1993-2002) returns to television this week with a six hour limited series, and the reunion of the pop culture’s favorite FBI agents, Mulder and Scully, is highly-anticipated.

Conventional wisdom about the original Fox series, however, tells us that the series’ last two seasons (eight and nine), were somehow a disappointment or not up to snuff.  This was the span in which Agent John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Agent Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish) stepped in to fill the void left by David Duchovny’s absence from the long-lived series.

As is often the case, however, conventional wisdom may not tell the whole story. A number of legitimately great “x-files” ideas were explored in the last two seasons of this cult-series, and today I want to bring your attention to the five most underrated adventures of that period...”

For my selection of great episodes, continue reading at Flashbak, please.
