Dave’s ‘Treat’ of the Day

For several years–despite the advent of shows like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story–a 1996 episode of The X-Files, called “Home,” has been the single most disturbing thing I have ever seen on television.

It was about a family in Pennsylvania being investigated for several murders in and around a nearby small town.

The upshot? This family, consisting of a mother and her three adult sons, was a product of generations of in-breeding. Even the episode’s attempts at humor–the local sheriff’s name was Andy Taylor and his deputy was named Barney–did nothing to soften the blow of what series creator Chris Carter had given American television that October 11th.

And I watched it in a pitch black house during a thunderstorm. It was the perfect setting for something perfectly horrifying.

Plus, if memory serves, it was the first program of any kind to earn TV’s “MA” rating. It was richly deserved.




Now, why on Earth does this have ANYthing to do with my “treat” of the day, you might ask? I know I would.

Well, this episode was part of The X-Files’ extraordinary fourth season–its best, in my opinion. And it’s the collection I’d most like to own of any of them. So, there you go–my “treat” of the day on this Wednesday is The X-Files’ Fourth Season on DVD. If you know it and I call you and you’ve registered HERE, you’ll win tickets to Happy Halloween Weekends at Holiday World! Good luck!

And leave the lights on.
