For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, "Jumped the Shark," it's a colloquialism used to "denote that point in a TV show or movie series' history where the plot veers off into absurd story lines or out-of-the-ordinary characterizations, particularly for a show with falling ratings apparently becoming more desperate to draw viewers in." ( Wikipedia ) Some shows that are considered to have "jumped the shark," are listed below, not including those already listed and getting some great discussions going on our list of top 10 shows that have jumped the shark: Top 10 Shows that "Jumped the Shark," Part 1 Top 10 Shows that "Jumped the Shark," Part 2 So when, if at all, do you think the following shows jumped the shark?

Ok That last movie was Terrible. They should have made that a mini series on FOX or something. We wanna see more with Smoking Man & Aliens. Did we forget about what Mulder is all about? 2010 is the deadline for the invasion. Did they forget that too???? WTF?
I would like tro pose a new question to the group. lol. This is another "Anyone else besides me..." question. And it is also a two-part one. Firstly, during season 5 episode Chinga, (the one co-written by Stephen King) does anyone ele besides me think that the cast and crew SO turned it up and did the Hokey Pokey between takes? And secondly, was it just me, or did anyone eles want to pause that episode and get up and do the Hokey Pokey themselves? Well, for those keeping track (which is no-one), this is number 1 stupid comment of the day. So, until number 2...
Hey I was watching season four episode Zero Sum, when Cancer Man put out a cigarette (as he often does). And I had this crazy notion. Ha Ha. In my head I was just like... "I wonder if there is anyone else out there, besides me, who feels like they're getting lung cancer themselves just from watching him." lol. I know its not really funny in a haha light and airy sort of way. But more chuckles in the this-is-halfway-depressing-and-yet-halfway-true sort of way. well I am done rambling. I just thought I would share my random musings.
does any one could give the link of the episode "all things" from season 7. That would be great! thank you so much!
i watch it quite often, it works. whoever deleted it, don't.
i've been trying to watch the Blessing Way part 2 of season 3 and everytime i play it, i wait and wait and wait but it never plays. can somebody tell me where i can watch that episode? i also want to watch episode 2 of season 3. where can i find it?
i heard rumors that later this year theres gonna be another x-files movie. Any truth to this? Supposedly its supposed to wrap up the series and finally answer some long standing questions.
