After 25 Years, the Truth Is Still Out There for 'The X-Files'

When “The X-Files” debuted Sept. 10, 1993, it broke a lot of rules about television series. So at a press gathering, the creative group was asked what the show was aiming for. David Duchovny deadpanned, “Syndication.” The series has surpassed even his expectations, running nine seasons (with an added two-season revival) and is still airing worldwide after 25 years. On the day that the show debuted, Variety reviewer Tony Scott raved about the “ingenious script&rdq... more Comments

5 Things That Didn't Make Sense in 'The X-Files' Season 11 Finale

Here we are. After 11 long seasons, uncountable alien encounters, and enough Mulder bad dad jokes to put real dads to shame (more on that joke later), this series is finally over -- at least, for now. And while the optimistic side of me wanted The X-Files to end on a high note, it instead ended on an insanely off-key note that made the pessimistic side of me swell with satisfaction. Let me lay the missteps out for you, so I can save you all 43 minutes.   ... more Comments

3 Life Lessons About Beauty and Aging from 'The X-Files' Episode 'Nothing Lasts Forever'

Get the barf bucket ready. The second-to-last episode of The X-Files' 11th season may have been the goriest of the year, maybe even of the past two decades. With the strict Standards and Practices of the 1990s loosening, Mulder and Scully are able to test the bloody waters of modern network television in "Nothing Lasts Forever," as they literally stumble into a cannibal camp. What was most striking about this episode was not the outrageous amounts of blood (intended, I'm sure, to make me sick to my stomach) or Scully's mys... more Comments

5 Ways 'Familiar' Was the Boldest 'X-Files' Episode Yet

Holy Mr. Chuckleteeth. The X-Files, admittedly, with the exception of the painful premiere, has been phenomenal this season. It has done exactly what season 10 (the first attempt at the show's "reboot") should have done by studying the changing world's influence on the investigations of Mulder and Scully. However, "Familiar" really takes the cake. The season 11 episode tracks our dynamic duo as they explore a reported animal attack in Connecticut. What starts out as a s... more Comments

10 Terrifying Inventions from 'The X-Files' Episode 'Rm9sbG93ZXJz' That We Already Have in Real Life

The X-Files has always been fascinated by the potential evils of "smart" technology -- one of the first episodes of the original season featured an intelligent computer system killing off corporate executives. But in "Rm9sbG93ZXJz" (an episode title I can only type out once), the show pushes the idea to its limits, and frankly, it hits a little too close to home. This season 11 episode -- which interestingly enough, features little to no dialogue -- follows Mulder and Scully as... more Comments

The Monsters Are Here: 'The X-Files' Tackles the Story of Skinner

I see monster people. In Season 11, Episode 6 of The X-Files, cutely titled "Kitten," Mulder and Scully must track down their favorite frenemy Skinner, who has gone missing. The episode, which delves into Skinner's never-before-seen background, peels back the layers of his character, exposing the root of his sometimes confusing support for his alien-hunting FBI proteges and how he transformed into the thick-skinned "bald eagle" we've all come to know and love. The episode open... more Comments

Everything We Learned About Mulder and Scully's Son in 'The X-Files' Episode 'Ghouli'

We knew Chris Carter was up to something. When Scully announced at the end of this season's opening episode that she believed William, the son she and Mulder gave up for adoption over a decade prior, was trying to contact her, it was clear that the show was leading up to the boy's unveiling. We just didn't think it would be so soon. In Season 11 Episode 5 of The X-Files, titled "Ghouli," Mulder and Scully... more Comments
