Gillian Anderson Just Hand Picked Her 6 Favorite “X-Files” Episodes

Oh and by the way, Gillian Anderson is finally getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, January 8th, two years after David Duchovny received his!

With “The X-Files” returning for its eleventh season on January 3, now is a great time to binge-watch the previous ten seasons. According to our calculations, 208 episodes of the show have thus far aired between the premiere in 1993 and the finale of Season 10 in 2016; in other words, you’d better get a move on that marathon!

If you’d rather just revisit your favorite episodes than ALL of them, that’s a good idea too. But which are your faves? Better yet, which are Gillian Anderson’s?!

Just last night, the official “X-Files” Twitter account did something pretty cool: they live-streamed six episodes from the show’s past, that list curated by Anderson herself. The live-stream is long over at the time of writing this post, but if you’re wondering which episode’s Anderson hand-selected to play during the binge, we’ve got that info for ya.

For starters, Anderson’s favorite episode is “Bad Blood,” part of Season 5.

Here’s the full list:

  • 1) “Ice” – Season 1, Episode 8
  • 2) “Humbug” – Season 2, Episode 20
  • 3) “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space” – Season 3, Episode 20
  • 4) “The Post-Modern Prometheus” – Season 5, Episode 5
  • 5) “Bad Blood” – Season 5, Episode 12
  • 6) “Triangle” – Season 6, Episode 3

What are you waiting for? Get to binging!
