“Monster of the Week“, or MOTW, refers to episodes of The X-Files that typically deal with some type of supernatural or paranormal creature/entity, but may also be a simple criminal with a unique ability. They are usually separate from episodes dealing with the conspiracy, although certain elements can crossover between the two. Monster of the Week episodes populate the majority of each season, as to avoid the risk of over exposing the mythology arc.
My cmnt: The MOTW episodes are what made The X-Files the entertaining and fun series that it was. The alien-mythology arc is unneeded and tedious. It is presented as what drives Fox Mulder to do what he is doing – looking for his abducted sister while searching out the truth of the great alien-government conspiracy. It is an attempt by the creators of the show to provide some grand unified theory to the series and as such mostly fails.
