Did You Know?


When Mulder and Scully go looking for the CSM at the ruins of the Anasazi-pueblos, and Scully asks what they're doing there, Mulder points at a window in the ruins (from which smoke appears). In the next shot, you can obviously see that he is not pointing but giving the "evil eye" sign. Within Christianity, this gesture means protection against the devil, and might be a nod to the CSM's devilish nature. See more »

A fitting finale to a miraculous series
7 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This 2-hour finale of the acclaimed TV Series, THE X-FILES, is a fitting send off of the show from the small screen to the big screen. From Mulder to Scully, Reyes to Doggett, Skinner, CSM, to some nifty tricks up the sleeve by Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz, Gilligan, Manners, et al, this 2-hour episode does not disappoint! While the series finale does not untangle all the strings, the creators and talent do twine most of the strings together into a nice farewell. Die hard fans and casual viewers alike will find it thoroughly enjoyable. And, fear not, for this series finale marks the end of the television portion of THE X-FILES and marks the starting point of film versions to come!! Stay tuned for second THE X-FILES feature film in 2006! THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
