Trivia

The sheriff, Teller, was named after Teller from the illusion and comedy duo Penn and Teller. The pair had wanted to appear on an episode of the show, but when Chris Carter could find no way to work them into the show this reference was added instead. See more »

Crazy Credits

Almost every episode ends with a fade to black and the words "Executive Producer Chris Carter." At the end of the episode "D.P.O.," a character is flipping through channels on television, and stops on one showing Carter's credit. At the end of the episode "Post-Modern Prometheus", the final shot of Mulder and Scully turns into a comic-book frame, and a hand flips the comic book shut to reveal the book end cover with Carter's credit.

This is nicely aligned and has an unabashed comic-book vibe that carries it.

It is about an awkward, moody teenager who feels he's not understood: in the X-file universe, this is rendered as him being able to harness lightning to destroy stuff.

He wears a Vandals tshirt, gets drunk in his backyard with the only one who'll hang with him, a schoolmate who works in the arcade shop. All of which give off a distinct early 90s vibe that reminds me of my years.

Mulder and Scully try to understand youth.

It helps that Ribisi plays the twitchy loner so well.
