Did You Know?


4-D is dedicated to the memory of Ricky Loyd Arreguin (real name was Ricardo David Loyd), who was murdered by a gang on his way home from John F. Kennedy High (Los Angeles). He had been walking in the 11100 block of Woodley Avenue with a group of students just after 3 p.m. A red car pulled up and an armed man jumped out, asking if anyone was in a gang. Despite no one saying they were, "the suspect fired." The gunman "reached over the fence and shot him in the head." Ricky Loyd had been walking from the high school down the block to meet his mother, Dorene Arreguin, who was waiting where she always picked him up. Ricky's stepfather, Jose Arreguin, works on props for the Fox television series "The X-Files." UPDATE: San Fernando jury convicted a 19-year-old Victor Manuel Celis of second-degree murder, gang and firearms allegations. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for the fatal shooting of a Kennedy High School student, Ricky Loyd in Arreguin September 13, 2001. The second suspect, Hector Ramirez, was also found guilty by a jury in the murder of 16 year old Ricky Loyd Arreguin and sentenced to 35 years to life in prison. He had shot Ricky in the head and kicked him while he laid dying. See more »

Crazy Credits

In the main title for the ninth season, a piece of paper flashes across the screen listing "FBI Contacts: Witnesses and Contributors." The names on the list are screen names of the series' on-line fans. For episodes #9.01-#9.11, the names were randomly picked from various X-Files message boards. For episodes #9.12-#9.19, the names came from contest entries. See more »

Ah, the gang's all here.
5 November 2007 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

4-D is an entertaining "what if?" episode. It explores the possibility of there being a parallel dimension to ours, where our twins live.

The teaser grabs your attention right off because it ends with both Reyes and Doggett both seriously wounded. It's rare in itself when a teaser has the agents in it.

For some reason, A.D. Follmer is acting like Skinner's superior in this episode, even though they have equal positions. Maybe it's because Follmer is heading the investigation that he is acting this way.

The actor playing Lukesh does so very well. He's got creepy down well.

It's interesting that Doggett comes up with the solution for saving himself. He probably doesn't believe it. He probably figures he'd rather be dead than paralyzed.

Like I said before, 4-D is an interesting concept. But all the inconsistencies that arise with parallel universes just don't work for me. Two Doggetts in one universe? If you kill one, everything returns to normal as if nothing happened? Maybe I'll like it more next time. Until then, 4-D is still very fun to watch.
