Goofs

When Mulder and Scully return to the cemetery to find the empty graves they begin to work out what's been going on and Scully says, "And the force summoned Theresa Nemman's body into the woods tonight." But it was Peggy O'Dell who was summoned that night and was killed running across the highway. Theresa Nemman phoned Mulder to tell him Peggy had been killed and approached the agents for protection at the scene of the hotel fire. She describes her previous experiences of having been summoned to the woods but she wasn't summoned that night. She is summoned the next night. See more »

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.
