Watching the episodes in order, I’m impressed by how solid this show was from the start. There is so much goofy stuff, but also so much tension and atmosphere and good scenes of Scully losing patience with crap. Think of how long Star Trek: The Next Generation ran before they tried doing episodes that made sense.
The X-Files also has the highest bit-player-to-star incidence of just about any TV show. That is totally Seth Green, and the stoner chick is voice actress Lalainia Lindbjerg, known to nerds as Bulma in Dragon Ball.
