The Fall is one of the best BBC dramas in years

"Welcome to Belfast," sighs the assistant chief constable, grimacing apologetically as he hands DS Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) a bulging case file. "I've done day reviews before, you know," she tuts, flicking regally through a wadge of blotchy mortuary snaps and false-lead suspect profiles. "Not here you haven't," continues Constable Roflz, scowling significantly out of the window. "Things are different here."

He's not wrong. Things are different here. Very different. So different, in fact, are things in The Fall (Monday, 9pm, BBC2) that it's probably easier to list the things that it's not, if only to give ourselves something to cling to when the more familiar, context-y stuff begins to shift, the floor gives way and everything starts to slide inexorably into a deep, knotted, bilious swamp of … differentness. So, some things that The Fall is not: a sitcom, a musical, a cooking show presented by men in distressed leather moccasins, a panel quiz, a thing about whales, a police procedural. Yes, it follows the hunt for a serial killer, but the serial killer is revealed within the first few minutes, peeling off his balaclava in a victim's flat, no less, before eating an orange and burying his beard in a pair of her pants. It's not a detective drama, either. Not really. Yes, we pound along after prickly DS Gibson as she quietly humiliates stupefied subordinates and draws important red circles around photos with her big Met-issued marker pen. Yet as much screen time is devoted to her wholly unlikely quarry: one Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan, excellent), a mild-mannered grief counsellor who enjoys jogging and jolly family days out when he's not strangling trainee solicitors or scribbling pictures of his clients' knockers in his notepad while they try to tell him about their dead children.

The Fall is an exercise in unexpectedness. That it's also one of the best things to have appeared on the BBC in years is almost by the by: this, it booms in its enormous, barrel-lunged Irish brogue, is how to make a relentlessly original, consistently gripping, vast-brained five-part psychological thriller with a gimmick (in essence: let's devote equal attention to the hunter and the hunted) that never feels like a gimmick, but rather the perfect means of exploring the banality of evil, the nature of obsession, and the niggly-squirmy minutiae of everyday, common-or-garden murder. Phew. Created by Prime Suspect 2 writer Allan Cubitt, it's all rather brilliant.

The plot, then: a young Belfast architect has been murdered and the local plod is up to its squeaky rubber truncheon in confusion. Enter, tutting, Gillian Anderson, an Arctic roll in a pencil skirt. "Where's that coffee?" she blurts smirkily before promptly linking the case with an earlier unsolved murder, telling everyone to tuck their shirts in, and launching a task force determined to stop the killer before he strikes again. Meanwhile, somewhere across the city, Paul Spector is kissing his doting wife goodnight and preparing for his next murder.

The sense of creeping unease mounts. A teenage babysitter flirts innocently with Spector ("I've had my braces removed!"). His young daughter begins to have nightmares. His son asks him what he's got in his bulging backpack. Horrible things happen, horribly. Nothing is as it seems. Gibson may have all the markings of the heroic maverick-about-town – the tart one-liners, the non-existent home life, the crisp-white-shirts-as-metaphor-for-obsessive-fastidiousness – but she's as glib, icy and detached as Spector. Then, at the end of the first episode, she says something to a colleague that catapults our preconceptions into a nearby thicket. But that's The Fall all over. Just when we think we've got this hunter/huntee lark sussed, it whisks the chair from under us, leaving us with our bumcheeks clenched in horror. If there's a more original anything this year, I'll eat my squeaky rubber truncheon.

The X-Files

This article is about the television series. For the franchise, see The X-Files (franchise). For other uses, see The X-Files (disambiguation).

American science fiction drama television series

The X-Files is an American science fictiondrama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, , to May 19, , on Fox. The program spanned nine seasons, with episodes. A short tenth season consisting of six episodes premiered on January 24, , and concluded on February 22, Following the ratings success of this revival, The X-Files returned for an eleventh season of ten episodes, which premiered on January 3, , and concluded on March 21, In addition to the television series, two feature films have been released: The film The X-Files which took place as part of the TV series continuity, and the stand-alone film The X-Files: I Want to Believe, released in , six years after the original television run had ended.

The series revolves around Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) who investigate X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. Mulder believes in the existence of aliens and the paranormal while Scully, a medical doctor and a skeptic, is assigned to scientifically analyze Mulder's discoveries, offer alternate rational theories to his work, and thus return him to mainstream cases. Early in the series, both agents become pawns in a larger conflict and come to trust only each other and a few select people. The agents also discover an agenda of the government to keep the existence of extraterrestrial life a secret. They develop a close relationship which begins as a platonic friendship, but becomes a romance by the end of the series. In addition to the series-spanning story arc, "monster of the week" episodes form roughly two-thirds of all episodes.

The X-Files was inspired by earlier television series which featured elements of suspense and speculative fiction, including The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Tales from the Darkside, Twin Peaks, and especially Kolchak: The Night Stalker. When creating the main characters, Carter sought to reverse gender stereotypes by making Mulder a believer and Scully a skeptic. The first seven seasons featured Duchovny and Anderson equally. In the eighth and ninth seasons, Anderson took precedence while Duchovny appeared intermittently. New main characters were introduced: FBI agents John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish). Mulder and Scully's boss, Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), also became a main character. The first five seasons of The X-Files were filmed and produced in Vancouver, British Columbia, before eventually moving to Los Angeles to accommodate Duchovny. The series later returned to Vancouver to film The X-Files: I Want to Believe as well as the tenth and eleventh seasons of the series.

The X-Files was a hit for the Fox network and received largely positive reviews, although its long-term story arc was criticized near the conclusion. Initially considered a cult series, it turned into a pop culture touchstone that tapped into public mistrust of governments and large institutions and embraced conspiracy theories and spirituality. Both the series itself and lead actors Duchovny and Anderson received multiple awards and nominations, and by its conclusion the show was the longest-running science fiction series in U.S. television history. The series also spawned a franchise which includes Millennium and The Lone Gunmen spin-offs, two theatrical films and accompanying merchandise.

Premise[edit]

General[edit]

The X-Files follows the careers and personal lives of FBI Special AgentsFox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). Mulder is a talented profiler and strong believer in the supernatural. He is also adamant about the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life and its presence on Earth. This set of beliefs earns him the nickname "Spooky Mulder" and an assignment to a little-known department that deals with unsolved cases, known as the X-Files. His belief in the paranormal springs from the claimed abduction of his sister Samantha Mulder by extraterrestrials when Mulder was Her abduction drives Mulder throughout most of the series. Because of this, as well as more nebulous desires for vindication and the revelation of truths kept hidden by human authorities, Mulder struggles to maintain objectivity in his investigations.

Agent Scully is a foil for Mulder in this regard. As a medical doctor and natural skeptic, Scully approaches cases with complete detachment even when Mulder, despite his considerable training, loses his objectivity. She is partnered with Mulder initially so that she can debunk Mulder's nonconforming theories, often supplying logical, scientific explanations for the cases' apparently unexplainable phenomena. Although she is frequently able to offer scientific alternatives to Mulder's deductions, she is rarely able to refute them completely. Over the course of the series, she becomes increasingly dissatisfied with her own ability to approach the cases scientifically. After Mulder's abduction at the hands of aliens in the seventh season finale "Requiem", Scully becomes a "reluctant believer" who manages to explain the paranormal with science.[9]

Various episodes also deal with the relationship between Mulder and Scully, originally platonic, but that later develops romantically.[10] Mulder and Scully are joined by John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish) late in the series, after Mulder is abducted. Doggett replaces him as Scully's partner and helps her search for him, later involving Reyes, of whom Doggett had professional knowledge.[11][12] The initial run of The X-Files ends when Mulder is secretly subjected to a military tribunal for breaking into a top secret military facility and viewing plans for alien invasion and colonization of Earth. He is found guilty, but he escapes punishment with the help of the other agents and he and Scully become fugitives.[13]

Mythology[edit]

Main articles: Mythology of The X-Files, X-files unit, Syndicate (The X-Files), and Colonist (The X-Files)

As the show progressed, key episodes, called parts of the "Mytharc", were recognized as the "mythology" of the series canon; these episodes carried the extraterrestrial/conspiracy storyline that evolved throughout the series. "Monster of the week"—often abbreviated as "MOTW" or "MoW"—came to denote the remainder of The X-Files episodes. These episodes, forming the majority of the series, dealt with paranormal phenomena, including: cryptids, mutants, science fiction technology, horror monsters, and religious phenomena. Some of the Monster-of-the-Week episodes even featured satiric elements and comedic story lines. The main story arc involves the agents' efforts to uncover a government conspiracy that covers up the existence of extraterrestrials and their sinister collaboration with said government. Mysterious men constituting a shadow element within the U.S. government, known as "The Syndicate", are the major villains in the series; late in the series it is revealed that The Syndicate acts as the only liaison between mankind and a group of extraterrestrials that intends to destroy the human species. They are usually represented by Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), a ruthless killer, masterful politician, negotiator, failed novelist, and the series' principal antagonist.

As the series goes along, Mulder and Scully learn about evidence of the alien invasion piece by piece. It is revealed that the extraterrestrials plan on using a sentient virus, known as the black oil (also known as "Purity"), to infect mankind and turn the population of the world into a slave race. The Syndicate—having made a deal to be spared by the aliens—have been working to develop an alien-human hybrid that will be able to withstand the effects of the black oil. The group has also been secretly working on a vaccine to overcome the black oil; this vaccine is revealed in the latter parts of season five, as well as the film. Counter to the alien colonization effort, another faction of aliens, the faceless rebels, are working to stop alien colonization. Eventually, in the season six episodes "Two Fathers"/"One Son", the rebels manage to destroy the Syndicate. The colonists, now without human liaisons, dispatch the "Super Soldiers": beings that resemble humans, but are biologically alien. In the latter parts of season eight, and the whole of season nine, the Super Soldiers manage to replace key individuals in the government, forcing Mulder and Scully to go into hiding.

    Mulder is an Oxford-educated FBIspecial agent who believes in the existence of extraterrestrials and a government conspiracy to hide the truth regarding them. He works in the X-Files office, which is concerned with cases marked as unsolvable; most involve supernatural/mysterious circumstances. Mulder considers the X-Files so important that he has made their study his life's main purpose. After his abduction by aliens at the end of season seven, his role in the show diminished and much of his work is taken on by Agent John Doggett.[17] He appeared in an episode of The Lone Gunmen and in both the film The X-Files and the film The X-Files: I Want to Believe.[18]

Production[edit]

Conception[edit]

See also: The X-Files (season 1) and Pilot (The X-Files)

Mulder and Scully came right out of my head. A dichotomy. They are the equal parts of my desire to believe in something and my inability to believe in something. My skepticism and my faith. And the writing of the characters came very easily to me. I want, like a lot of people do, to have the experience of witnessing a paranormal phenomenon. At the same time I want not to accept it, but to question it. I think those characters and those voices came out of that duality.

—Chris Carter on creating the characters of Mulder and Scully.[45]

Chris Carter created The X-Filesand wrote the series pilot, along with several other episodes.

California native Chris Carter was given the opportunity to produce new shows for the Fox network in the early s. As Carter was tired of the comedies he had been working on for Walt Disney Pictures, a report that &#;million Americans may have been abducted by aliens, the Watergate scandal and the s horror series Kolchak: The Night Stalker all contributed to trigger the idea for The X-Files. He wrote the pilot episode in [47]

Carter's initial pitch for The X-Files was rejected by Fox executives. He fleshed out the concept and returned a few weeks later, whereupon they commissioned the pilot. Carter worked with NYPD Blue producer Daniel Sackheim to further develop the pilot, drawing stylistic inspiration from the documentary The Thin Blue Line and the British television series Prime Suspect. Inspiration also came from Carter's memories of The Twilight Zone as well as from The Silence of the Lambs, which provided the impetus for framing the series around agents from the FBI, in order to provide the characters with a more plausible reason for being involved in each case than Carter believed was present in Kolchak. Carter was determined to keep the relationship between the two leads strictly platonic, basing their interactions on the characters of Emma Peel and John Steed in The Avengers series.

The early s series Twin Peaks was a major influence on the show's dark atmosphere and its often surreal blend of drama and irony. Duchovny had appeared as a cross-dressingDEA agent in Twin Peaks and the Mulder character was seen as a parallel to that show's FBI Agent Dale Cooper.[52] The producers and writers cited All the President's Men, Three Days of the Condor, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rashomon, The Thing, The Boys from Brazil, The Silence of the Lambs and JFK as other influences.[53] Carter's use of continuous takes in "Triangle" was modeled on Hitchcock's Rope.[54] In addition, episodes written by Darin Morgan often referred to or referenced other films.[55]

Casting[edit]

Duchovny portrays Fox Mulder as a main character for season 1–7, 10 and 11 of the series, as well as an intermittent lead in the eighth and ninth.

Anderson portrays Dana Scully for the entire eleven seasons of the series; she also made The X-Files history in by becoming the first female writer and director of an episode.[56]

Duchovny had worked in Los Angeles for three years prior to The X-Files; at first he wanted to focus on feature films. In , his manager, Melanie Green, gave him the script for the pilot episode of The X-Files. Green and Duchovny were both convinced it was a good script, so he auditioned for the lead.[57] Duchovny's audition was "terrific", though he talked rather slowly. While the casting director of the show was very positive toward him, Carter thought that he was not particularly intelligent. He asked Duchovny if he could "please" imagine himself as an FBI agent in "future" episodes. Duchovny, however, turned out to be one of the best-read people that Carter knew.[58]

Anderson auditioned for the role of Scully in "I couldn't put the script down", she recalled.[56] The network wanted either a more established or a "taller, leggier, blonder and breastier" actress for Scully than the year-old Anderson, a theater veteran with minor film experience. After auditions, Carter felt she was the only choice.[59][61] Carter insisted that Anderson had the kind of "no-nonsense integrity that the role required." For portraying Scully, Anderson won numerous major awards: the Screen Actors Guild Award in and , an Emmy Award in , and a Golden Globe Award [56]

The character Walter Skinner was played by actor Mitch Pileggi, who had unsuccessfully auditioned for the roles of two or three other characters on The X-Files before getting the part. At first, the fact that he was asked back to audition for the recurring role slightly puzzled him, until he discovered the reason he had not previously been cast in those roles—Carter had been unable to envision Pileggi as any of those characters, because the actor had been shaving his head. When Pileggi auditioned for Walter Skinner, he had been in a grumpy mood and had allowed his small amount of hair to grow. His attitude fit well with Skinner's character, causing Carter to assume that the actor was only pretending to be grumpy. Pileggi later realized he had been lucky that he had not been cast in one of the earlier roles, as he believed he would have appeared in only a single episode and would have missed the opportunity to play the recurring role.[62]

Before the seventh season aired, Duchovny filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox, claiming that Fox had undersold the rights to its own affiliates, thereby costing him huge sums of money. Eventually, the lawsuit was settled, and Duchovny was awarded a settlement of about $20&#;million, but the lawsuit put strain on Duchovny's professional relationships. Neither Carter nor Duchovny was contracted to work on the series beyond the seventh season; however, Fox entered into negotiations near the end of that season in order to bring the two on board for an eighth season. After settling his contract dispute, Duchovny quit full-time participation in the show after the seventh season.[64] This contributed to uncertainties over the likelihood of an eighth season.[65] Carter and most fans felt the show was at its natural endpoint with Duchovny's departure, but it was decided that Mulder would be abducted at the end of the seventh season and would return in 12 episodes the following year.[66] The producers then announced that a new character, John Doggett, would fill Mulder's role.

More than actors auditioned for the role of Doggett, but only about ten were seriously considered. Lou Diamond Phillips, Hart Bochner, and Bruce Campbell were among the ten. The producers chose Robert Patrick.[11] Carter believed that the series could continue for another ten years with new leads, and the opening credits were accordingly redesigned in both seasons eight and nine to emphasize the new actors (along with Pileggi, who was finally listed as a main character).[12] Doggett's presence did not give the series the ratings boost the network executives were hoping for.[17] The eighth-season episode "This is Not Happening" marked the first appearance of Monica Reyes, played by Gish, who became a main character in season nine. Her character was developed and introduced due to Anderson's possible departure at the end of the eighth season. Although Anderson stayed until the end, Gish became a series regular.

Minor recurring characters[edit]

Glen Morgan and James Wong's early influence on The X-Files mythology led to their introduction of popular secondary characters who continued for years in episodes written by others: Scully's father, William (Don S. Davis); her mother, Margaret (Sheila Larken); and her sister, Melissa (Melinda McGraw). The conspiracy-inspired trio The Lone Gunmen were also secondary characters.[69] The trio was introduced in the first-season episode "E.B.E." as a way to make Mulder appear more credible. They were originally meant to appear in only that episode, but due to their popularity, they returned in the second-season episode "Blood" and became recurring characters. Cigarette Smoking Man, portrayed by William B. Davis, was initially cast as an extra in the pilot episode. His character, however, grew into the main antagonist.[71]

Filming[edit]

"The End", the season five finale (), was the last episode to be filmed in Vancouveruntil the revival in

During the early stages of production, Carter founded Ten Thirteen Productions and began to plan for filming the pilot in Los Angeles. However, unable to find suitable locations for many scenes, he decided to "go where the good forests are" and moved production to Vancouver. It was soon realized by the production crew that since so much of the first season would require filming on location, rather than on sound stages, a second location manager would be needed. The show remained in Vancouver for the first five seasons; production then shifted to Los Angeles beginning with the sixth season. Duchovny was unhappy over his geographical separation from his wife Téa Leoni, although his discontent was popularly attributed to frustration with Vancouver's persistent rain.[75] Anderson also wanted to return to the United States and Carter relented following the fifth season. The season ended in May with "The End", the final episode shot in Vancouver and the final episode with the involvement of many of the original crew members, including director and producer R.W. Goodwin and his wife Sheila Larken, who played Margaret Scully and would later return briefly.[54][76]

With the move to Los Angeles, many changes behind the scenes occurred, as much of the original The X-Files crew was gone. New production designer Corey Kaplan, editor Lynne Willingham, writer David Amann and director and producer Michael Watkins joined and stayed for several years. Bill Roe became the show's new director of photography and episodes generally had a drier, brighter look due to California's sunshine and climate, as compared with Vancouver's rain, fog and temperate forests. Early in the sixth season, the producers took advantage of the new location, setting the show in new parts of the country.[77] For example, Vince Gilligan's "Drive", about a man subject to an unexplained illness, was a frenetic action episode, unusual for The X-Files largely because it was set in Nevada's stark desert roads.[54] The "Dreamland" two-part episode was also set in Nevada, this time in Area The episode was largely filmed at "Club Ed", a movie ranch located on the outskirts of Lancaster, California.[54][78]

Although the sixth through ninth seasons were filmed in Los Angeles, the series' second movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe (), was filmed in Vancouver,[80] According to Spotnitz, the film script was written for the city and surrounding areas.[80] The revival was also shot there.[81][82]

Music[edit]

Main article: Music of The X-Files

The music was composed by Mark Snow, who got involved with The X-Files through his friendship with executive producer Goodwin. Initially Carter had no candidates. A little over a dozen people were considered, but Goodwin continued to press for Snow, who auditioned around three times with no sign from the production staff as to whether they wanted him. One day, however, Snow's agent called him, talking about the "pilot episode" and hinting that he had got the job.[83]

"The X-Files" (sample) ()

The theme, "The X-Files", used more instrumental sections than most dramas.[84] The theme song's famous whistle effect was inspired by the track "How Soon Is Now?" from the US edition of The Smiths' album Meat Is Murder. After attempting to craft the theme with different sound effects, Snow used a Proteus 2 rackmount sound module with a preset sound called "Whistling Joe". After hearing this sound, Carter was "taken aback" and noted it was "going to be good". According to the "Behind the Truth" segment on the first season DVD, Snow created the echo effect on the track by accident. He felt that after several revisions, something still was not right. Carter walked out of the room and Snow put his hand and forearm on his keyboard in frustration. By doing so, he accidentally activated an echo effect setting. The resulting riff pleased Carter; Snow said, "this sound was in the keyboard. And that was it."[84] The second episode, "Deep Throat", marked Snow's debut as solo composer for an entire episode. The production crew was determined to limit the music in the early episodes. Likewise, the theme song itself first appeared in "Deep Throat".

Snow was tasked with composing the score for both The X-Files films. The films marked the first appearance of real orchestral instruments; previous music had been crafted by Snow using digitally sampled instrument sounds.[87] Snow's soundtrack for the first film, The X-Files: Original Motion Picture Score, was released in [88] For the second film, Snow recorded with the Hollywood Studio Symphony in May at the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox in Century City.[89]UNKLE recorded a new version of the theme music for the end credits.[90] Some of the unusual sounds were created by a variation of silly putty and dimes tucked into piano strings. Snow commented that the fast percussion featured in some tracks was inspired by the track "Prospectors Quartet" from the There Will Be Blood soundtrack.[91] The soundtrack score, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, was released in [92]

Opening sequence[edit]

Shots from the show's original and current opening credit sequence

The opening sequence was made in for the first season and remained unchanged until Duchovny left the show.[12][84] Carter sought to make the title an "impactful opening" with "supernatural images". These scenes notably include a split-screen image of a seed germinating as well as a "terror-filled, warped face". The latter was created when Carter found a video operator who was able to create the effect. The sequence was extremely popular and won the show its first Emmy Award, which was for Outstanding Graphic Design and Title Sequences. Producer Paul Rabwin was particularly pleased with the sequence and felt that it was something that had "never [been] seen on television before".[84] In , James Charisma of Paste ranked the show's opening sequence #8 on a list of The 75 Best TV Title Sequences of All Time.[94]

The premiere episode of season eight, "Within", revealed the first major change to the opening credits. Along with Patrick, the sequence used new images and updated photos for Duchovny and Anderson, although Duchovny only appears in the opening credits when he appears in an episode. Carter and the production staff saw Duchovny's departure as a chance to change things. The replacement shows various pictures of Scully's pregnancy. According to executive producer Frank Spotnitz, the sequence also features an "abstract" way of showing Mulder's absence in the eighth season: he falls into an eye.[12] Season nine featured an entirely new sequence. Since Anderson wanted to move on, the sequence featured Reyes and Skinner. Duchovny's return to the show for the ninth-season finale, "The Truth" marked the largest number of cast members to be featured in the opening credits, with five.[95] The revival seasons use the series' original opening credits sequence.[96]

The sequence ends with the tagline "The Truth Is Out There", which is used for the majority of the episodes. The tagline changes in specific episodes to slogans that are relevant to that episode.

The following episodes received alternate taglines:

I didn't want to work to get them back because I believed what we are doing deserved to have them back."[] While news outlets cited declining ratings because of lackluster stories and poor writing,[10]The X-Files production crew blamed September 11 terrorist attacks as the main factor.[] At the end of , The X-Files had become the longest-running consecutive science fiction series ever on U.S. broadcast television.

After several successful seasons, Carter wanted to tell the story of the series on a wider scale, which ultimately turned into a feature film. He later explained that the main problem was to create a story that would not require the viewer to be familiar with the broadcast series.[] The movie was filmed in the hiatus between the show's fourth and fifth seasons and re-shoots were conducted during the filming of the show's fifth season. Due to the demands on the actors' schedules, some episodes of the fifth season focused on just one of the two leads.[] On June 19, , the eponymous The X-Files, also known as The X-Files: Fight the Future was released. The crew intended the movie to be a continuation of the season five finale "The End", but was also meant to stand on its own. The season six premiere, "The Beginning", began where the film ended.[]

The film was written by Carter and Spotnitz and directed by series regular Rob Bowman. In addition to Mulder, Scully, Skinner and Cigarette Smoking Man, it featured guest appearances by Martin Landau, Armin Mueller-Stahl and Blythe Danner, who appeared only in the film. It also featured the last appearance of John Neville as the Well-Manicured Man. Jeffrey Spender, Diana Fowley, Alex Krycek and Gibson Praise—characters who had been introduced in the fifth-season finale and/or were integral to the television series—do not appear in the film. Although the film had a strong domestic opening and received mostly positive reviews from critics, attendance dropped sharply after the first weekend.[] Although it failed to make a profit during its theatrical release—due in part to its large promotional budget—The X-Files film was more successful internationally. Eventually, the worldwide theatrical box office total reached $&#;million. The film's production cost and ad budgets were each close to $66&#;million.[] Unlike the series, Anderson and Duchovny received equal pay for the film.[]

In November , Carter decided to pursue a second film adaptation. Production was slated to begin after the ninth season, with a projected release in December [] In April , Carter reiterated his desire and the studio's desire to do a sequel film. He planned to write the script over the summer and begin production in spring or summer for a release.[] Carter described the film as independent of the series, saying "We're looking at the movies as stand-alones. They're not necessarily going to have to deal with the mythology."[] Bowman, who had directed various episodes of The X-Files in the past as well as the film, expressed an interest in the sequel, but Carter took the job. Spotnitz co-authored the script with Carter.[80][]The X-Files: I Want to Believe became the second film based on the series, after 's The X-Files: Fight the Future. Filming began in December in Vancouver and finished on March 11, [80][][]

The film was released in the United States on July 25, In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Carter said that if I Want to Believe proved successful, he would propose a third movie that would return to the television series' mythology and focus on the alien invasion foretold within the series, due to occur in December [] The film grossed $4&#;million on its opening day in the United States.[] It opened fourth on the U.S. weekend box office chart, with a gross of $&#;million.[] By the end of its theatrical run, it had grossed $20,, domestically and an additional $47,, internationally, for a total worldwide gross of $68,,[] Among domestic releases, it finished in th place.[] The film's stars both claimed that the timing of the movie's release, a week after the highly popular Batman film The Dark Knight, negatively affected its success.[][] The film received mixed to negative reviews.

Revival[edit]

In several interviews around the release, Carter said that if the X-Files: I Want to Believe film proved successful at the box office, a third installment would be made going back to the TV series' mythology, focusing specifically on the alien invasion and colonization of Earth foretold in the ninth-season finale, due to occur on December 22, [][] In an October interview, David Duchovny likewise said he wanted to do a X-Files movie, but did not know if he would get the chance.[][] Anderson stated in August that a third X-Files film is "looking pretty good".[] As of July , Fox had not approved the movie, although Carter, Spotnitz, Duchovny and Anderson expressed interest.[][] At the New York Comic Con held October 10–13, , Duchovny and Anderson reaffirmed that they and Carter are interested in making a third film, with Anderson saying "If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that, then I guess that's what it would be."[]

On January 17, , Fox confirmed that they were looking at the possibility of bringing The X-Files back, not as a movie, but as a limited run television season. Fox chairman Dana Walden told reporters that "conversations so far have only been logistical and are in very early stages" and that the series would only go forward if Carter, Anderson, and Duchovny were all on board, and that it was a matter of ensuring all of their timetables are open.[] On March 24, , it was confirmed the series would return with series creator Chris Carter and lead actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.[][] It premiered on January 24, [] A year later, on April 20, , Fox officially announced that The X-Files would be returning for an eleventh season of ten episodes,[] which premiered on January 3, []

Future[edit]

In January , Gillian Anderson confirmed that season 11 would be her final season of The X-Files.[] The following month, Carter stated in an interview that he could see the show continuing without Anderson.[] In May , Fox's co-CEO Gary Newman commented that "there are no plans to do another season at the moment."[]

In October , Chris Carter said: "I always thought there would be even more X-Files." He admitted that continuing the series at this point with Duchovny and Anderson is unlikely, but has plans to continue the franchise with an upcoming animated spinoff. "Being that Gillian has decided to move on with her career, we certainly couldn't do Mulder and Scully again. But that's not to say there isn't another way to do The X-Files. And so right now I think the future is unwritten." The rights are now owned by Disney.[]

The X-Files was converted into a comic book series published by Topps Comics during the show's third and fourth seasons. The initial comic books were written solely by Stefan Petrucha. According to Petrucha, there were three types of stories: "those that dealt with the characters, those that dealt with the conspiracy, and the monster-of-the-week sort of stuff".[] Petrucha cited the latter as the easiest to write. Petrucha saw Scully as a "scientist [] with real world faith", and that the difference between [Mulder and Scully] is not that Mulder believes and Scully doesn't; it's more a difference in procedure."[] In this manner, Mulder's viewpoint was often written to be just as valid as Scully's, and Scully's science was often portrayed to be just as convincing as Mulder's more outlandish ideas.[] Petrucha was eventually fired and various other authors took up the job.[] Topps published 41 regular issues of The X-Files from –

It was later announced that Carter himself would be the executive producer for the series and would be "providing feedback to the creative team regarding scripts and outlines to keep the new stories in line with existing and on-going canon."[] The series restarted the series' mythology, and the first arc of the story focused on "seek[ing] to bring the mythology of the Alien Conspiracy back up to date in a more paranoid, post-terror, post-WikiLeaks society."[] In addition, sequels to popular Monster-of-the-Week episodes were made.[]The X-Files Season 10 concluded on July 1, , after 25 issues.[]

In August , The X-Files Season 11 comic book began, also published by IDW. The 8-issue series served as a continuation of the TV show.

The X-Files has been criticized for being unscientific and privileging paranormal and supernatural ideas (e.g. the hypotheses made by Mulder). For instance, in , Richard Dawkins wrote that "The X-Files systematically purveys an anti-rational view of the world which, by virtue of its recurrent persistence, is insidious."[]

First seven seasons[edit]

The pilot episode was generally well received by fans and critics. Variety criticized the episode for "using reworked concepts", but praised the production and noted its potential. Of the acting, Variety said "Duchovny's delineation of a serious scientist with a sense of humor should win him partisans and Anderson's wavering doubter connects well. They're a solid team" Variety praised the writing and direction: "Mandel's cool direction of Carter's ingenious script and the artful presentation itself give TV sci-fi a boost." The magazine concluded, "Carter's dialogue is fresh without being self-conscious and the characters are involving. Series kicks off with drive and imagination, both innovative in recent TV."[]Entertainment Weekly said that Scully "was set up as a scoffing skeptic" in the pilot but progressed toward belief throughout the season.[] After the airing of four episodes, the magazine called The X-Files "the most paranoid, subversive show on TV", noting the "marvelous tension between Anderson—who is dubious about these events—and Duchovny, who has the haunted, imploring look of a true believer".[]Virgin Media said the most memorable "Monster-of-the-Week" was Eugene Tooms from "Squeeze" and "Tooms".[]

The following four seasons received similar praise. During the show's second season, Entertainment Weekly named The X-Files the "Program of the Year" for , stating "no other show on television gives off the vibe that The X-Files does".[]The DVD Journal gave the second season four out of four stars, calling it a "memorable season".

Club argued that the third season of The X-Files was the show's "best season and maybe one of the greatest TV seasons of all time", noting it was consistent and "[swung] from strength to strength" between mythology and stand-alone episodes.[] Michael Sauter of Entertainment Weekly gave the fifth season an "A–", writing that it "proves the show was—even then—still at its creative peak (if only for another year or so) and full of surprises".[] He praised the new additions to the series' mythology and concluded that "many stand-alone episodes now look like classics".[] Francis Dass, writing for the New Straits Times, noted that the season was "very interesting" and possessed "some [] truly inspiring and hilarious" episodes.[]

After the film, the show began to receive increasingly critical reviews. Some longtime fans became alienated during the show's sixth season, due to the different tone taken by most stand-alone episodes after the move to Los Angeles.[] Rather than adhering to the "Monsters-of-the-Week" style, they were often romantic or humorous or both, such as "Arcadia" or "Terms of Endearment". Some fans felt there was no coherent plan to the main storyline and that Carter was "making it all up as he goes along".[] As for the seventh season, The A.V. Club noted that while most of the first eight seasons of The X-Files was "good-to-great", the seventh season of the show was "flagging" and possessed "significant problems".[] Despite this, seasons six and seven included several episodes that were lauded by critics, including the sixth season entries "Triangle" and "The Unnatural",[][] as well as the seventh season installment "X-Cops".[]

Eighth and ninth seasons[edit]

The show's eighth season received mixed to positive reviews from critics. The A.V. Club noted that the eighth season was "revitalized by the new 'search for Mulder' story-arc".[] Amy H. Sturgis commended the eighth season, praising Anderson's performance as Scully as "excellence" and positively wrote that Doggett was "non-Mulderish".[] Collin Polonowonski from DVD Times said that the season included "more hits than misses overall" but offered a negative word about the mythology episodes, claiming that they were the "weakest" episodes in the season.[] Jesse Hassenger from PopMatters, however, criticized the new season, claiming that Patrick was miscast and calling Duchovny's appearances as Mulder shallow.[]

The ninth season received mixed to negative reviews by critics and garnered negative reaction from many long-time fans and viewers. Sabadino Parker from PopMatters, called the show "a pale reflection of the show it once was".[] Elizabeth Weinbloom from The New York Times concluded, "shoddy writing notwithstanding, it was this halfhearted culmination of what was once a beautifully complicated friendship", between Mulder and Scully that ended remaining interest in what was a "waning phenomenon".[10] Another The New York Times review stated, "The most imaginative show on television has finally reached the limits of its imagination."[]The A.V. Club listed the ninth season and the film The X-Files: I Want to Believe as the "bad apple" of The X-Files franchise, describing the ninth season as "clumsy mish-mash of stuff that had once worked and new serialized storylines about so-called 'super soldiers'".[] Brian Linder from IGN, on the other hand, was more positive to the ninth season, saying that the series could still have aired if the writers created a new storyline for Patrick and Gish's characters.[]

Tenth and eleventh seasons[edit]

The revival of the show was met with mixed reviews; the first and last episodes were met with lukewarm to negative reviews from critics, whereas episodes two through five were generally well received.[] The third episode in particular, named "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster", was praised by critics, with Alex McCown of The A.V. Club calling it an "instant classic".[] Overall, the review aggregatorMetacritic gave the season a score of 60 out of based on 35 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews."[] Likewise, Rotten Tomatoes gave the revival a 64% approval rating with an average score of out of 10 based on 53 reviews. The site's consensus reads, "Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's chemistry remains intact, but overall, The X-Files revival lacks the creative spark necessary to sustain the initial rush of nostalgia."[]

The eleventh season received positive reviews from critics. Review aggregator Metacritic gave the season a score of 67 out of based on 18 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[]Rotten Tomatoes gave the season a "Certified Fresh" rating of 78% with an average score of out of 10 based on 39 reviews. The site's consensus reads, "Though it may not make many new believers, The X-Files return to business as usual is a refreshing upgrade from the show's underwhelming previous outing".[] Episodes "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat", "Ghouli", "Rm9sbG93ZXJz" and "Nothing Lasts Forever" were praised, receiving a % approval rating on the website.[]

Fandom[edit]

As The X-Files saw its viewership expand from a "small, but devoted" group of fans to a worldwide mass cult audience,[][]digitaltelecommunications were becoming mainstream. According to The New York Times, "this may have been the first show to find its audience growth tied to the growth of the Internet".[]The X-Files incorporated new technologies into storylines beginning in the early seasons: Mulder and Scully communicated on cellular phones, e-mail contact with secret informants provided plot points in episodes such as "Colony" and "Anasazi", while The Lone Gunmen were portrayed as Internet aficionados as early as [] Many X-Files fans also had online access. Fans of the show became commonly known as "X-Philes", a term coined from the Greek root "-phil-" meaning love or obsession.[] In addition to watching the show, X-Philes reviewed episodes themselves on unofficial websites, formed communities with other fans through Usenetnewsgroups and listservs,[] and wrote their own fan fiction.[]

The X-Files also "caught on with viewers who wouldn't ordinarily consider themselves sci-fi fans".[] While Carter argued that the show was plot-driven, many fans saw it as character-driven.[] Duchovny and Anderson were characterized as "Internet sex symbols".[] As the show grew in popularity, subgroups of fans developed, such as "shippers" hoping for a romantic or sexual partnership between Mulder and Scully, or those who already perceived one between the lines.[] Other groups arose to pay tribute to the stars[] or their characters,[] while others joined the subculture of "slash" fiction.[] In the summer of , a journalist wrote, "there are entire forums online devoted to the 'M/S' [Mulder and Scully] relationship".[] In addition to "MOTW", Internet fans invented acronyms such as "UST" meaning "unresolved sexual tension" and "COTR" standing for "conversation on the rock"—referencing a popular scene in the third-season episode "Quagmire"—to aid in their discussions of the agents' relationship, which was itself identified as the "MSR".

The producers did not endorse some fans' readings, according to a study on the subject: "Not content to allow Shippers to perceive what they wish, Carter has consistently reassured NoRomos [those against the idea of a Mulder/Scully romance] that theirs is the preferred reading. This allows him the plausible deniability to credit the show's success to his original plan even though many watched in anticipation of a romance, thanks, in part, to his strategic polysemy. He can deny that these fans had reason to do so, however, since he has repeatedly stated that a romance was not and would never be." The Scully-obsessed writer in Carter's episode "Milagro" was read by some as his alter ego, realizing that by this point "she has fallen for Mulder despite his authorial intent".[] The writers sometimes paid tribute to the more visible fans by naming minor characters after them. The best example is Leyla Harrison. Played by Jolie Jenkins and introduced in the eighth-season episode "Alone", Harrison, was created and named in memory of an Internet fan and prolific writer of fan fiction of the same name, who died of cancer on February 10, [12]

The Fall is one of the best BBC dramas in years

"Welcome to Belfast," sighs the assistant chief constable, grimacing apologetically as he hands DS Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) a bulging case file. "I've done day reviews before, Arquivos TV/Séries, you know," she tuts, flicking regally through a wadge of blotchy mortuary snaps and false-lead suspect profiles, Arquivos TV/Séries. "Not here you haven't," continues Constable Roflz, Arquivos TV/Séries significantly out of the window. "Things are different here."

He's not wrong. Things are different here. Very different. So different, in fact, are things in The Fall (Monday, 9pm, BBC2) that it's probably easier to list the things that it's not, if only to give ourselves something to cling to when the more familiar, context-y stuff begins to shift, the floor gives way and everything starts to slide inexorably into a deep, knotted, bilious swamp of … differentness. So, some things that The Fall is not: a sitcom, a musical, a cooking show presented by men in distressed leather moccasins, a panel quiz, a thing about whales, a police procedural. Yes, Arquivos TV/Séries, it follows the hunt for a serial killer, but the serial killer is revealed within the first few minutes, peeling off his balaclava in a victim's flat, Arquivos TV/Séries, no less, before eating an orange and burying his beard in a pair of her pants. It's not a detective drama, either. Not really. Yes, we pound along after prickly DS Gibson as she quietly humiliates stupefied subordinates and draws important red circles around photos with her big Met-issued marker pen. Yet as much screen time is devoted to her wholly unlikely quarry: one Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan, excellent), a mild-mannered grief counsellor who enjoys jogging and jolly family days out when he's not strangling trainee solicitors or scribbling pictures of his clients' knockers in his notepad while they try to tell him about their dead Arquivos TV/Séries Fall is an exercise Arquivos TV/Séries unexpectedness. That it's also one of the best things to have appeared on the BBC in years is almost by the by: this, it booms in its enormous, barrel-lunged Irish brogue, is how to make a relentlessly original, consistently gripping, vast-brained five-part psychological thriller with a gimmick (in essence: let's devote Arquivos TV/Séries attention to the hunter and the hunted) that never feels like a gimmick, but rather the perfect means of exploring the banality of evil, the nature of obsession, and the niggly-squirmy minutiae of everyday, common-or-garden murder. Phew. Created by Prime Suspect 2 writer Allan Cubitt, it's all rather brilliant.

The plot, then: a young Belfast architect has been murdered and the local plod is up to its squeaky rubber truncheon in confusion. Enter, tutting, Arquivos TV/Séries, Gillian Anderson, an Arctic roll in a pencil skirt, Arquivos TV/Séries. "Where's that coffee?" she blurts smirkily before promptly linking the case with an earlier unsolved murder, telling everyone to tuck their shirts in, and launching a task force determined to stop the killer before he strikes again. Meanwhile, somewhere across the city, Paul Spector is kissing his doting wife goodnight and preparing for his next murder.

The sense of creeping unease mounts. A teenage babysitter flirts innocently with Spector ("I've had my braces removed!"). His young daughter begins to have nightmares. His son asks him what he's got in his bulging backpack. Horrible things happen, horribly. Nothing is as it seems. Gibson may have all the markings of the heroic maverick-about-town – the tart one-liners, the non-existent home life, the crisp-white-shirts-as-metaphor-for-obsessive-fastidiousness – but she's as glib, icy and detached as Spector. Then, Arquivos TV/Séries, at the end of the first episode, she says something to a colleague that catapults our preconceptions into a nearby thicket. But that's The Fall all over. Just when we think we've got this hunter/huntee lark sussed, it whisks the chair from under us, leaving us with our bumcheeks clenched in horror. If there's a more original anything this year, I'll eat my squeaky rubber truncheon.

The X-Files was inspired by earlier television series which featured elements of suspense and speculative fiction, including The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Tales from the Darkside, Twin Peaks, and especially Kolchak: The Night Stalker. When creating the main characters, Carter sought to reverse gender stereotypes by making Mulder a believer and Scully a skeptic, Arquivos TV/Séries. The first seven seasons featured Duchovny and Anderson equally. In the eighth and ninth seasons, Arquivos TV/Séries, Anderson took precedence while Duchovny appeared intermittently. New main Arquivos TV/Séries were introduced: FBI agents John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish).

Production[edit]

Conception[edit]

See also: The X-Files (season 1) and Pilot (The X-Files)

Mulder and Scully came right out of my head. A dichotomy. They are the equal parts of my desire to believe in something and my inability to believe in something. My skepticism and my faith. And the writing of the characters came very easily to me. I want, like a lot of people do, Arquivos TV/Séries, to have the experience of witnessing a paranormal phenomenon. At the same time I want not to accept it, but to question it. I think those characters and those voices came out of that duality.

—Chris Carter on creating the characters of Mulder and Scully.[45]

Chris Carter created The X-Filesand wrote the series pilot, along with several other episodes.

California native Chris Carter was given the opportunity to produce new shows for the Fox network in the early s, Arquivos TV/Séries. As Carter was tired of the comedies he had been working on for Walt Disney Pictures, a report that &#;million Americans may have been abducted by aliens, the Watergate scandal and the s horror series Kolchak: The Night Stalker all contributed to trigger the idea for The X-Files. He wrote the pilot episode in [47]

Carter's initial pitch for The X-Files was rejected by Fox executives. He fleshed out the concept and returned a few weeks later, Arquivos TV/Séries, whereupon they commissioned the pilot. Carter worked with NYPD Blue producer Daniel Sackheim to further develop the pilot, Arquivos TV/Séries, drawing stylistic inspiration from the documentary The Thin Blue Line and the British television series Prime Suspect. Inspiration also came from Carter's memories of The Twilight Zone as well as from The Silence of the Lambs, Arquivos TV/Séries, which provided the impetus for framing the Arquivos TV/Séries around agents from the FBI, in order to provide the characters with a more plausible reason for being involved in each case than Carter believed was present in Kolchak. Carter was determined to keep the relationship between the two leads strictly platonic, basing their interactions on the characters of Emma Peel and John Steed in The Avengers series.

The early s series Twin Peaks was a major influence on the show's dark atmosphere and its often surreal blend of Arquivos TV/Séries and irony. Duchovny had appeared as a cross-dressingDEA agent in Twin Peaks and the Mulder character was seen as a parallel to that show's FBI Agent Dale Cooper.[52] The producers and writers cited All the President's Men, Three Days Arquivos TV/Séries the Condor, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rashomon, The Thing, The Boys from Brazil, The Silence of the Lambs and JFK as other influences.[53] Carter's use of continuous takes in "Triangle" was modeled on Hitchcock's Rope.[54] In addition, episodes written by Arquivos TV/Séries Morgan often referred to or referenced other films.[55]

Casting[edit]

Duchovny portrays Fox Mulder as a main character for season 1–7, 10 and 11 of the series, as well as an intermittent lead in the eighth and ninth.

Anderson portrays Dana Scully for the entire eleven seasons of the series; she also made The X-Files history in by becoming the first female writer and director of an episode.[56]

Duchovny had worked in Los Angeles Arquivos TV/Séries three years prior to The X-Files; at first he wanted to focus on feature films. Inhis manager, Melanie Green, gave him the script for the pilot episode of Advanced SystemCare Pro 14.6.0.307 Crack With Keys Free Download X-Files. Green and Duchovny were both convinced it was a good script, so he auditioned for the lead.[57] Duchovny's audition was "terrific", though he talked rather slowly. While the casting director of the show was very positive toward him, Carter thought that he was not particularly intelligent. He asked Duchovny if he could "please" imagine himself as an FBI agent in "future" episodes. Duchovny, however, turned out to be one of the best-read people that Carter knew.[58]

Anderson auditioned for the role of Scully in "I couldn't put the script down", she recalled.[56] The network wanted either a more established or a "taller, Arquivos TV/Séries, leggier, blonder and breastier" actress for Scully than the year-old Anderson, a theater veteran with minor film experience. After auditions, Carter felt she was the only choice.[59][61] Carter insisted that Anderson had the kind of "no-nonsense integrity that the role required." For portraying Scully, Anderson won numerous major awards: the Screen Actors Guild Award in andan Emmy Award inand a Golden Globe Award Arquivos TV/Séries character Walter Skinner was played by actor Mitch Pileggi, who had unsuccessfully auditioned for the roles of Arquivos TV/Séries or three other characters on The X-Files before getting the part. At first, the fact that he was asked back to audition Arquivos TV/Séries the recurring role slightly puzzled Arquivos TV/Séries, until he discovered the reason he had not previously been cast in those roles—Carter had been unable to envision Pileggi as any of those characters, because the actor had been shaving his head. When Pileggi auditioned for Walter Skinner, he had been in a grumpy mood and had allowed his small amount of hair to grow. His attitude fit well with Arquivos TV/Séries character, causing Carter to assume that the actor was only pretending to be grumpy. Pileggi later realized he had been lucky that he had not been cast in one of the Backuptrans 3.2.45 Crack License {Mac+Win} Key Free Download Archives roles, as he believed he would have appeared in only a single episode and would have missed the opportunity to play the recurring role.[62]

Before the seventh season aired, Arquivos TV/Séries, Duchovny filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox, claiming that Fox had undersold the rights to its own affiliates, thereby costing him huge sums of money. Eventually, the lawsuit was settled, and Duchovny was awarded a settlement of Arquivos TV/Séries $20&#;million, but the lawsuit put strain on Duchovny's professional relationships. Neither Carter nor Duchovny was contracted to work on the series beyond the seventh season; however, Fox entered into negotiations near the end of that season in order to bring the two on board Arquivos TV/Séries an eighth season, Arquivos TV/Séries. After settling his contract dispute, Duchovny quit full-time participation in the show Arquivos TV/Séries the seventh season.[64] This contributed to uncertainties over the likelihood of an eighth season.[65] Carter and most fans felt the show was at its natural endpoint with Duchovny's departure, but it was decided that Mulder would be abducted at the end of the seventh season and would return in 12 episodes the following year.[66] The producers then announced that a new character, Arquivos TV/Séries, John Doggett, would fill Mulder's role.

More than actors auditioned for the role of Doggett, but only about ten were seriously considered. Lou Diamond Phillips, Hart Bochner, and Bruce Campbell were among the ten. The producers chose Robert Patrick.[11] Carter believed that the series could continue for another ten years with new leads, and the opening credits were accordingly redesigned in both seasons eight and nine to emphasize the new actors (along with Pileggi, who was finally listed as a main character).[12] Doggett's presence did not give the series the ratings boost the network executives were hoping for.[17] The eighth-season episode "This is Not Happening" marked the first appearance of Monica Reyes, played by Gish, Arquivos TV/Séries, who became a main character in season nine. Her character was developed and introduced due to Anderson's possible departure at the end of the eighth season. Although Anderson stayed until the end, Gish became a series regular.

Minor recurring characters[edit]

Glen Morgan and James Wong's early influence on The X-Files mythology led to their introduction of popular secondary characters who continued for years in episodes written by others: Scully's father, William (Don S.

Filming[edit]

"The End", the season five finale (), was the last episode to be filmed in Vancouveruntil the revival in

During the early stages of production, Carter founded Ten Thirteen Productions and began to plan for filming the pilot in Los Angeles. However, unable to find suitable locations for many scenes, he decided to "go where the good forests are" and moved production to Vancouver. It was soon realized by the production crew that since so much of the first season would require filming on location, rather than on sound stages, a second location manager would be needed. The show remained in Vancouver for the first five seasons; production then shifted to Los Angeles beginning with the sixth season, Arquivos TV/Séries. Duchovny was unhappy over his geographical separation from his wife Téa Leoni, although his discontent was popularly attributed to frustration with Vancouver's persistent rain.[75] Anderson also wanted to return to the United States and Carter relented following the fifth season. The season ended in May with "The End", the final episode shot in Vancouver and the final episode with the involvement of many of the original crew members, including director and producer R.W.

Music[edit]

The music was composed by Mark Snow, who got involved with The X-Files through his friendship with executive producer Goodwin. Initially Carter had no candidates.

By doing so, he accidentally activated an echo effect setting. The resulting riff pleased Carter; Snow said, "this sound was in the keyboard. And that was it."[84] The second episode, "Deep Throat", marked Snow's debut as solo composer for an entire episode. The production crew was determined to limit the music in the early episodes. Likewise, the theme song itself first appeared in "Deep Throat".

Fandom[edit]

Arquivos TV/Séries to The New York Times, "this may have been the first show to find its audience growth Microsoft Office 2010 Crack With Activation Key 2021 Full Free Download to the growth of the Internet".[]The X-Files incorporated new technologies into storylines beginning in the early seasons: Mulder and Scully communicated on cellular phones, e-mail contact with secret informants provided plot points in episodes such as "Colony" and "Anasazi", while Arquivos TV/Séries Lone Gunmen were portrayed as Internet aficionados as early as [] Many X-Files fans also had online access.

The X-Files also "caught on with viewers who wouldn't ordinarily consider themselves sci-fi fans".[] While Carter argued that the show was plot-driven, many fans saw it as character-driven.[] Duchovny and Anderson were characterized as "Internet sex symbols".[] As the show grew in popularity, subgroups of fans developed, such as "shippers" hoping for a romantic or sexual partnership Arquivos TV/Séries Mulder and Scully, or those who already perceived one between the lines.[] Other groups arose to pay tribute to the stars[] or their characters,[] while others joined the Arquivos TV/Séries of "slash" fiction.[] In the summer ofa journalist wrote, "there are entire forums Arquivos TV/Séries devoted to the 'M/S' [Mulder and Scully] relationship".[] In addition to "MOTW", Internet fans invented acronyms Arquivos TV/Séries as "UST" meaning "unresolved sexual tension" and "COTR" standing for "conversation on the rock"—referencing a popular scene in the third-season episode "Quagmire"—to aid in their discussions of the agents' relationship, which was itself identified as the "MSR".
