This challenge was produced with the help of Sir Simon Milligan for the prompts!
The X-Files’ ninth season debuted on November 11, 2001. This season’s twenty episodes brought us amnesic Mexico excursions, insect-controlling teens, and some really active imaginations. This would also be the series’ final season (or would it? No, it wouldn’t). Even though the show was still able to crank out some interesting ideas – nine seasons is a good run! – unfortunately, viewership plummeted even harder from the previous season, and critical acclaim was pretty hard to find.
Prompt: What’s your favorite X-Files season 9 episode?
