Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully work in an unassigned detail of the bureau called the X-Files investigating cases dealing with unexplained paranormal phenomena. Mulder, a true believer, and Scully, a skeptic, perceive their cases from stand points of science and the paranormal.Written by
Many of the cast's real-life partners worked on the show: Perrey Reeves, David Duchovny's girlfriend for two years, played his lover in "3". Maggie Wheeler and Lucy Liu, both of whom dated Duchovny, appeared in "Born Again" and "Hell Money", respectively. Even his former wife, Téa Leoni, played herself in "Hollywood A.D." Gillian Anderson dated Rodney Rowland, who appeared in "Never Again", for over a year. She also dated Adrian Hughes, who played one of the Peacocks in "Home". She was married to, and had a daughter with, Clyde Klotz, the show's Art Director, after they met at the beginning of the series. Mitch Pileggi met his wife, Arlene Pileggi, on the set of the show--she played his secretary and was Gillian Anderson's double. Robert Patrick's wife played his character John Doggett's wife in the nineth season. See more »

I find it hard to comment on The X- Files because it simply transcends words. It's an intelligent masterpiece, an epos of beautifully complicated scenarios, plots and characters. Eruditely taking on the grayest of areas, confronting those things under your bed and inside your closet thus bringing new meaning to the fears brought on by conventions and the imprudent obstinacy of social norms. The script, the actors and the direction make the most unbelievable seem believable and the unfathomable- unfathomably real. So thought provoking that if you really let yourself dwell in its essence, it can change the way you see the world, if only just by believing in the conviction that The Truth Is Out There.
