Trivia

The title is a humorous reference to the phrase "jumping the shark," used to describe shows that have reached their peak and started to decline in quality. Chris Carter said that the title was tongue-in-cheek, and that it was their "way of lowering the boom on anybody who thought that it did." See more »

Quotes

Morris Fletcher: Well, watching you three trying to find your butts with both hands is not my idea of a fun time.

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 »

Im still crying my eyes out.. RIP TLG
27 July 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Heroes live forever. But Legends never die. Problem is, they weren't legends, just heroes. But they were still so brave and heroic. Mulder didn't even show up at their Funerals! I hate that man for abandoning the X-Files when there was only 1 more season left. Such a coward. The X-Files MADE David Duchovni. He never made it. TLG made it. They were so brave. All they ever cared about were giving people the truth and helping save lives. So so sad. REST IN PEAVE LONE GUNMEN, FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS. How is this not long enough to publish already? Holy cow, i'm not a professional movie critic, just a die-hard X-Files fan and an Environmental scientist who was inspired by Scully to takeup courses on science. Wish i could've majored in Astro-biology but my school doesn't have that course. Nor does any other school in the whole state
