X-Files Synopsis

X-Files © 20th Century Fox. All Rights Reserved.

"The X-Files" is a science fiction television show created by Chris Carter that aired between 1993 - 2002.  The show featured FBI Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), who investigated unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. The pair were brought together to balance each other out. Mulder was the "believer" and Scully was the skeptic.  The show spawned popular slogans such as "The Truth Is Out There," "Trust No One," and "I Want to Believe". 

The show featured many different types of plots ranging from comedy to horror.  Some scenarios were long, drawn out situations that would pop up every now and again, and some were strictly what is termed as "monster of the week" episodes.

Popularity of the show peaked in the mid to late 1990s, and even had a feature film released in 1998.  During the final two years of the show, David Duchovny made fewer appearances and Gillian Anderson was now the focus. This time period also introduced new characters to show such as John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish).

"The X Files" was an award winning show, earning American Peabody, Golden Globe, and Emmy Awards. At the time of it's final episode, it had been the longest running Sci-Fi show on American television. It was dubbed the second greatest cult television show and the 37th bets show ever on television. TIME magazine also included the show on it's 100 Best TV Shows of All Time.
