[Screenshots] Home Décor (Evolving Post)

A place where we can admire the evolving state of Mulder and Scully’s (and friends’) home furnishings over the years.  Just a sampling of images to start, but this post will continue to be updated as time allows.

1×01 – Deep Throat

A rare glimpse into Mulder’s kitchen.  It looks like he’s cooking a can of Campbell’s Soup.

1×12 – Beyond the Sea

And here’s Scully’s kitchen as she packs up some leftovers after dinner with her parents.

And a little of Scully’s Christmas decorating in the background here.

1×15 – Young at Heart

Several shots of Scully’s apartment in this episode.  Here she patrols the premises on high alert.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment02

I think we all need to talk about this terrifying cat thing on Scully’s wall.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment_terrifyingcatthing

It’s almost like people sitting down having a normal conversation… about weird salamander hands.

01x15_youngatheart_scullyapartment03

And a nice shot of her kitchen in the morning.

4×20 – Small Potatoes

Scully’s kitchen in Small Potatoes.

7×07 – Orison

We get to see a lot of Scully’s apartment in Orison and since there’s some running from room-to-room, it may be a good episode to get a better understanding of the layout (at least as it stands in Season 7).

Orison also gives us some nice shots of Mulder’s apartment, as well.

7×17 – all things

A couple nice shots of Scully’s apartment, but it’s really Mulder’s bedroom that steals the show here.

Now for Mulder’s apartment…

10×05 – Founder’s Mutation

Our first look at Scully’s new living quarters after moving out of the Unremarkable House.  Is it an apartment?  A house?  A rented out hotel room?  It’s not really clear, as we really only see a bedroom with a desk, the drawer of which contains a single photo of William and no sign of any other lived-in clutter.  There’s also a floor lamp somewhere to the left.

The episode’s promo picture from this scene actually provides a slightly better view of the overall layout compared to the tighter shots featured in the final episode.

10×04 – Babylon

A brief shot of Scully’s bedroom from Babylon shows the room in some cooler tones with some potentially re-arranged furniture (or whatever that is in the foreground).  What is that white thing on the bed in both episodes?  Could it be Scully’s silky pajamas?

[Screenshots] The Glasses Master Post (Evolving Post)

Because glasses are sexy.  A screenshot gallery featuring the times Mulder and Scully donned corrective lenses.  Post will be updated as I make my way back through the series.

1×79 – Pilot

The first episode starts us off with a wealth of glasses shots featuring both of our favorite agents.

When we meet Mulder for the first time, he’s wearing glasses.

1x00_pilot_mulderglasses01

 

Scully wears glasses in the Pilot on multiple occasions.

Like reading on the plane.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses01_600

And doing an autopsy.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses02

And typing on her laptop before Mulder drops by.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses03
And typing on her laptop again before the power goes out.

1x00_pilot_scullyglasses04

 

I’m not sure if any other episode in the entire series has so much hot glasses action.

 

1×01 – Deep Throat

Scully looks so sophisticated in her glasses as she waits for Mulder at the beginning of Deep Throat.

01x01_deepthroat_scullyglasses01

 

Who the fuck is this weirdo?

01x01_deepthroat_scullyglasses02

 

 

1×02 – Squeeze

Return of the Mulder!Glasses.

1×21 – Born Again

While looking through documents, Scully is crushed beneath the weight of her own shoulder pads.  And is also wearing glasses.

2×03 – Blood

Scully’s glasses make an appearance in two different scenes.

2x03_blood_glasses01

2x03_blood_glasses02

 

2×07 – 3

The saddest Scully glasses.  ;_;  Still, it says something about the prominence of Scully’s glasses in the early days that Mulder would hold onto them along with her badge and her cross.

3×09 – Nisei

Mulder glasses make a nice little appearance in Nisei.

4×20 – Small Potatoes

Casual Friday night scientific research at home Scully glasses.

7×01 – The Sixth Extinction

Scully glasses are few and far between now, but this episode gives them a lot of screentime.  Scully glasses in Africa!  Now I need to go back and screencap all of the glasses in between!

[Screenshots] Screenshot Comparison – Conduit

Image quality comparison! Samples for this set include Netflix, the original Season 1 DVD release (Region 1), and the HD remaster that aired on ZMAXX in Germany. It’s possible that the image quality on Netflix can vary with connection speed. I’m not sure how the ZMAXX version was captured, so I don’t know how that might affect the quality. I don’t have any of the other HD TV airings to compare it to at the moment.  I’m also not sure if there were any differences (such as in compression) between the original Season 1 DVD box set released in 2000 and any later printings.
