Edward James Olmos,
Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully work in an unassigned detail of the bureau called the X-Files investigating cases dealing with unexplained paranormal phenomena. Mulder, a true believer, and Scully, a skeptic, perceive their cases from stand points of science and the paranormal. Written by
Despite their chemistry and the deliberately slow-burning sexual tension of their characters, both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have admitted that they were less close and bickered with each other due to the long hours of shooting in Vancouver during the show's initial run. After the show ended in 2002 they increased their natural rapport, and now consider themselves great friends and closer to each other than their spouses. See more »
Mulder and Scully are shown in numerous episodes carrying a variety of handguns from Glocks to Smith & Wesson to SIG Sauers. FBI agents are issued one model of weapon for standard duty carry and they carry those models unless they are lost, unless the agent changes assignments or the entire Bureau changes the brand and model it is using.

Forget alcohol, this absolutely incredible show is quite possibly more addicting. The acting is to say the least amazing, and the characters are so real it's a bit spooky. The first fours seasons are the best, combing sci-fi, horror and reality drama into a most satisfying combination. I find the show fearlessness when showing gore is refreshing (no i do not have a gore fetish)and ability to back up the most wild theories is almost unimaginable. The scripts are so unbelievable, that you might laugh them off at first thought, but they draw you in making you want to believe. Most episodes in the first 5 seasons are phenomenal, though there are some duds, after all, nobody can have perfection. The chemistry shared between the two main characters, Mulder and Scully is at times choking, they seem so connected that you can help but momentarily forget, they aren't real. Splitting them up pretty much wrote the epitaph for the show, bringing them back together for the series finale did boost it ever so slightly. Even before I watched the show I knew half the catch phrases, Trust no one, the truth is out there, i want to believe and characters names, now what does that say? The show will forever be remembered hopefully when it was strongest, not toward then sad end it had.
