Did You Know?


Mulder's contact within the "Men in Black" wears a Buffalo Bills football team cap as a recognition sign. Previously in The X-Files: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man (1996), a flashback of CSM had him mention to his colleagues that he didn't want to see the Bills win a Superbowl as long as he's alive.

A contender for the title of best episode
9 August 2008 | by koalablue_1993See all my reviews

Dreamland part 1 and 2 are two of my most favorite episodes ever! This is a non-mythology two parter that proves to be one of the entire series finest. There is humor, creepiness and a handful of weirdly touching moments. Body switching is depicted perfectly. David Duchovny's acting in the comedy episodes is always hilarious, Gillian Anderson gets her moments too. If you want to have fun and laugh out loud every two seconds this is the episode for you. I have never had so much fun watching the X-Files. Inmensily enjoyable. And we finally get Area 51 featured in the show.

Mulder: HE IS NOT ME!
