Not inherently, no. That's just one of the many reasons why X-Files is better. It set the standard.
The Mirrorball Man said it in far less words, but the X-Files didn't invent creature of the week shows, nor did it invent the supernatural investigation genre. The Outer Limits did creature of the week shows back in the 60's.
The X-Files is not just a creature-of-the-week show. It is not just a supernatural investigation show. And both shows you mentioned were off network air for decades (The cable version of OL was a contemporary) before X-Files premiered. Like I said, unique for its time.
