Did You Know?


Darren McGavin, star of Kolchak: The Night Stalker (1974), which was one of this show's biggest influences, was approached for the roles of Senator Matheson (Mulder's government contact in #2.1 "Little Green Men", #3.1, "Nisei" and #6.9, "S.R. 819") and William Mulder (Fox's dad), but turned both roles down. Eventually, he was cast as Arthur Dales, a retired FBI Agent, for the episodes #5.15, "Travelers" and #6.13, "Agua Mala". See more »


Mulder notes to his tape recorder that the main lights don't work in the receiver room, but that the instrument lights are still working. After he finds Jorge, the ceiling lights seem to work thereafter. This is especially visible when Moulder records that state of Jorge's body to his tape machine. See more »

Agent Morris: So?

I Thought It Was Little Grey Men?
10 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Little Green Men is a solid start of Season 2 of The X Files. Very enjoyable and we get to see the abduction of Mulder's sister for the first time, so that's special. It is a very good episode for a Season starter and we see how Mulder and Scully manage without The X Files. Anyway, here are some good and bad things about this episode, Little Green Men,

The Good: The flashback of Samantha's abduction.

That car chase in the end.

That alien scene in the cabin.

The Bad: Got a little boring in parts.

Conclusion: Overaly good. 8/10
