I'm Obsessed with this show, it's that good!
28 January 1999 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Everyone should watch the X-Files because the writing is superb, the acting is excellent, and the special effects will blow you away. The plots are always interesting and keep you on your toes, watch for tie-ins to other eps and numbers that keep popping up all over, special numbers. It keeps us hard core fans looking. Watch the X-Files and you will not be disappointed!
