Most of the cast's real life partners worked on the show: Perry Reeve, Duchovny's girlfriend for two years, played his lover in "3". Maggie Wheeler or Lucy Liu, who dated with him, stared in "Born Again" and "Hell's Money", and also his former wife, Tea Leoni, who worked in " Hollywood AD". Gillian Anderson was dating for a year with Rodney Rowland who stared "Never Again", also dated with Adrian Hughes, who played one of the Peacocks in "Home", and was married and had a daughter with Clyde Klotz, the art director she met at the beginning of the show. Mitch Pilleggi also met his wife in the show, Arlenne Pilleggi, that played his secretary and also was Gillian Anderson's double. Robert Patrick's wife's played Doggett's wife. 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.
