Trivia

Over the years The Scully effect, that consists in how young women have chosen to join to law enforcement and medicine as a result of their admiration for the inner strength of Scully, has grown all over the world. See more »

Goofs

In many episodes it is clear that the agents are not in the region of the country or the world, described in the captions or the script. This especially becomes evident when the series began filming in Southern California and the vegetation and the terrain clearly could have only been that region. See more »

User Reviews

Really one of the coolest shows around
8 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

The X-Files is one of the best shows ever. The show has great episodes dealing with something paranormal and/or conspiracy. The characters have a great chemistry, especially Mulder and Scully. It's not as good as it was a few years back, but it's still way above most shows on today. Many episodes have dealt with this alien conspiracy recently, but the neat thing about it is how not everything is explained, leaving the door open for further episodes. The X-Files is a very excellent show.
