In the UK Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released new "Mytharc" multi-part episodes as edited together TV movies on VHS in the mid 1990s. However, these tapes (which usually took the title of just one of the episodes comprising them but were sometimes completely re-named) were extremely expensive and released as numbered "Files" in the wrong order. For example "File 3: Abduction" ("Duane Barry"/"Ascension"/"One Beath") confusingly came after "File 1: The Unopened File" ("Anasazi"/"The Blessing Way"/"Paper Clip"). Although by the third season most mythology episodes were multi- part stories, important plot information relating to the conspiracy could still sometimes only be found in the unavailable standalone episodes to further confuse viewers of these releases. Also, "Colony"/"Endgame" and "Piper Maru"/"Apocrypha" were seemingly forgotten to be included in the series until long after many later episodes. See more »
Throughout the series when we see a closeup of CGB Spender's/The Smoker's ashtray while he is extinguishing his cigarette, the filters of the "smoked" cigarettes already in the ashtrays are perfectly white, while they should be yellow/brown from the nicotine-smoke. This indicates that they are props, placed there before shooting and not cigarettes smoked by the characters. See more »
We've both lost so much... but I believe that what we're looking for is in the X-Files. I'm more certain than ever that the truth is in there.
I've heard the truth, Mulder. Now what I want are the answers.

In the main title for the ninth season, a piece of paper flashes across the screen listing "FBI Contacts: Witnesses and Contributors." The names on the list are screen names of the series' on-line fans. For episodes #9.01-#9.11, the names were randomly picked from various X-Files message boards. For episodes #9.12-#9.19, the names came from contest entries. See more »
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.
