Comedian Kumail Nanjiani (known for shows such as Silicon Valley (2014) and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail (2014)), who has a role on the reboot of the series, is also a devoted X-Phile who hosts "The X-Files Files," a podcast on which he discusses and analyzes in detail each episode of the original series. During filming, he was chatting with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in a production tent in the middle of the night when they asked why he wasn't recording the conversation for his podcast--so he did. At their urging, he asked them about which episodes of the show they thought were the worst. Anderson listed "Space," "Fire," the episode she first called "The Cat One--Los Lobos Tostitos" before Duchovny "corrected" her and said "Tesos Tostados" and Nanjiani provided the actual name of that episode, "Teso dos Bichos." Duchovny identified "the chupacabra episode" ("El Mundo Gira") as one of his worst. See more »
There would have been several layers of supervision between Muldaur and Scully and Deputy Director Skinner, who would have been far too busy to personally supervise their section. See more »
You have seen this before, I can tell. You lied to them.
I would never lie. I willfully participated in a campaign of misinformation.

I find it hard to comment on The X- Files because it simply transcends words. It's an intelligent masterpiece, an epos of beautifully complicated scenarios, plots and characters. Eruditely taking on the grayest of areas, confronting those things under your bed and inside your closet thus bringing new meaning to the fears brought on by conventions and the imprudent obstinacy of social norms. The script, the actors and the direction make the most unbelievable seem believable and the unfathomable- unfathomably real. So thought provoking that if you really let yourself dwell in its essence, it can change the way you see the world, if only just by believing in the conviction that The Truth Is Out There.
