Trebek is out there
I've been sick the last couple days, which means I've had little else to do but watch Netflix DVDs. I just watched most of X-Files Season 4, and the screenshot on the right here is from "Jose Chung's From Outer Space". Re-watching that episode now, almost a decade after I first saw that, I can safely and without any hesitation say that it's the coolest episode of any tv show ever. It has pretty much everything you might want in an episode, including Rashômon style unreliable poly-narration, big-headed gray aliens, government men in black, and a cameo by the venerable Alex Trebek (pictured in the aforementioned screenshot).

On an unrelated note, I like Nyquil a lot. I mean, really a lot. If I still used "hella" as an adverb, it would be used here to describe my feelings for Nyquil.
