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
During the opening titles, in the Mulder and Scully's F.B.I. ID badges can be read "Federal Bureau of Justice, United States Department of Investigation." This alteration was necessary as making a fake F.B.I. badge, even for fictional purposes, is illegal. The real-life quote is: "Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Department of Justice."

In the main title sequence, the man in the photo pointing to the UFO in the shadowy night sky is Bruce Bryant -- one of the main title designers. He's also the stand-in for the wispy translucent ghost, shot using a negative effect in the hallway of their offices. See more »

Forget alcohol, this absolutely incredible show is quite possibly more addicting. The acting is to say the least amazing, and the characters are so real it's a bit spooky. The first fours seasons are the best, combing sci-fi, horror and reality drama into a most satisfying combination. I find the show fearlessness when showing gore is refreshing (no i do not have a gore fetish)and ability to back up the most wild theories is almost unimaginable. The scripts are so unbelievable, that you might laugh them off at first thought, but they draw you in making you want to believe. Most episodes in the first 5 seasons are phenomenal, though there are some duds, after all, nobody can have perfection. The chemistry shared between the two main characters, Mulder and Scully is at times choking, they seem so connected that you can help but momentarily forget, they aren't real. Splitting them up pretty much wrote the epitaph for the show, bringing them back together for the series finale did boost it ever so slightly. Even before I watched the show I knew half the catch phrases, Trust no one, the truth is out there, i want to believe and characters names, now what does that say? The show will forever be remembered hopefully when it was strongest, not toward then sad end it had.
