Storyline

In yet another crazed crossover, Leonard Nimoy narrates another tale of the supernatural, reminiscent of his days with "In Search Of." Realizing that even he's too drunk to drive after a night at Moe's Tavern, Homer stumbles through the woods and encounters a green glowing alien. Needless to say, nobody takes him seriously, except for "X-Files" FBI Agent Fox Mulder, who once again drags along his partner Dana Scully on another quest to prove the government is hiding the presence of UFO's from the public. However, even this mission may make a skeptic out of Mulder. Written by Daniel Timothy Dey

My favourite episode
10 June 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Springfields Files is my favourite Simpsons episode,its a laugh from start to finish and its a parody of The X Files.

It starts off with everyone in Springfield happy that its Friday and Homer goes to Moes and wants to try a different beer,but after all the alcohol Homer has to walk home and then gets lost in the forest and believes he saw an alien.

Then he tells Alien Believers and they help Homer to find the alien,but when they cant find any evidence they stop to believe him and neither does anyone around Springfield except Bart.

They then camp out in the same Forrest where Homer saw the alien and they discover the surprising truth.

10/10 *****
