Trivia

Such was Chris Carter's standing with the FOX network at the time, that he was given an entire month to shoot the pilot with little or no network interference - almost unheard of indulgences for a brand new show. See more »

Typically Ironic
1 October 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I remember when word came about the new series X Files. It was going to be big, everyone said, and it was. I never liked it. Not once. Then Carter comes along and tries to make a second success, and this time, for me, he hits it right.

Call it what you want - it may be the way they filmed it, the way they paced it, Lance Henriksen's presence (he's exceptionally good in this one) - but it was very, very good.

And it's typically ironic that some of the better shows such as this one don't get the staying power and the studio backing that the more mediocre shows get. But that's life. C'est la vie. It's a shame it disappeared as quickly as it did, but if it didn't it might not be remembered so fondly today.

Highly recommended - very gripping, very well made series. Whether or not you're an X Files fan doesn't matter: odds are you will like this one a lot.
