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
In keeping with the original series run's practice of reusing Canadian character actors in multiple unrelated parts, Hiro Kanagawa, Christine Willes, and Alex Diakun each appeared in one of the three first episodes of the long-delayed tenth season aired in 2016. Kanagawa played two different characters in the second and fourth seasons; Wiles had the small but recurring role of F.B.I. Agent Karen E. Kosseff (Scully's therapist) in three different episodes; and Diakun played four different characters in the second and third seasons and the second movie. See more »
In many episodes it is clear that the agents are not in the region of the country or the world, described in the captions or the script. This especially becomes evident when the series began filming in Southern California and the vegetation and the terrain clearly could have only been that region. See more »
Mulder, toads just fell from the sky!
I guess their parachutes didn't open.

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 »

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.
