Trivia

Having no real formal education, Henriksen saw Frank Black as a character much smarter than him and studied various books on psychology, the FBI and profiling for the role trying to capture the essence of such a well-versed character. He's still amazed that he pulled it off. See more »

Quotes

Typically Ironic
1 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I remember when word came about the new series X Files. It was going to be big, everyone said, and it was. I never liked it. Not once. Then Carter comes along and tries to make a second success, and this time, for me, he hits it right.

Call it what you want - it may be the way they filmed it, the way they paced it, Lance Henriksen's presence (he's exceptionally good in this one) - but it was very, very good.

And it's typically ironic that some of the better shows such as this one don't get the staying power and the studio backing that the more mediocre shows get. But that's life. C'est la vie. It's a shame it disappeared as quickly as it did, but if it didn't it might not be remembered so fondly today.

Highly recommended - very gripping, very well made series. Whether or not you're an X Files fan doesn't matter: odds are you will like this one a lot.
