This recording is the premiere of the Season 3 X-Files episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose".
This is my personal favorite episode of the series and a lot of people tend to share that opinion. The X-Files has always put out excellent episodes that are either perfectly scary, funny or depressing, but this episode is the first (and possibly only) that managed to take all three traits and work them into a great plot. I won't spoil anything about the episode or go into much detail about it, but there is a reason it's still held in such high acclaim 25 years later.
I started collecting X-Files tapes about a year or two back and this episode was always one on my checklist that I wanted to find old recordings of. I had come across a Fuji tape labelled 'The X-Files ''Lightening'' 10/6/95' which of course referred to the episode ''D.P.O.'' that had premiered a week prior on October 6. I bought it in hopes that this episode would be on it as well and luckily for me, it was.
