Quotes

Special Agent Fox Mulder: [Scully and Mulder are examining what appears to be an alien body found in a coffin] If it's not human, what is it?
Special Agent Dana Scully: It's mammalian. My guess is it's a chimpanzee or something from the ape family. Possibly an orangutan.

Simply put - The best show ever!
7 December 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show is absolutely incredible. Stunning imagery and creative imaginations by Chris Carter and crew help to make this the most interesting show on television. It's a pleasure to own each of the episodes from all seven seasons on videotape. The best news of all is that season one is coming to DVD in 2000. A gem like this deserves the best home video format around! Duchovny and Anderson are easily the most gifted actors on television today.
