I think the end of Season 2 through the middle of Season 3 is probably my favorite era of the show. In the first five season it was never bad, but to me, this is where it struck the best balance. The Monster-of-the-Week episodes are strong enough to not feel like a lame distraction from the mytharc and the mytharc episodes still have a ton of intrigue, which is something they lost after a while, which in turn came along with it being clear that Chris Carter was really making it up as he went along. You also are coming up on the Darin Morgan episodes ("Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose," "War of the Coprophages" & "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space'"). They show that X-Files can do dark comedy as good as any one.
I envy you being able to enjoy this period for the first time.
