X-Files! This is one of the most successful speculative fiction, or science fiction, TV and movie franchises ever.
The X-Files debuted on September 10, 1993 and would run for
nine seasons, spawn two major motion pictures, and make a comeback to
television in 2016 with a six-episode season.
Created by Chris Carter, the show starred David Duchovny as true believer Agent Fox Mulder, a man haunted by the abduction of his sister
under extremely odd circumstances. He’s relegated to the bowels of the FBI,
investigating cases involving paranormal phenomena.
But Mulder’s plain brilliant, so the powers that be send in
no-nonsense, skeptic and M.D. holding, Dana Scully, played by Gillian Anderson,
to debunk Mulder’s nonsense and get him back to “real” cases.
Despite being quite attractive, the pair somehow manages to
make it through several seasons before becoming romantically involved. Good
thing because love between a show's stars can destroy a series quicker than an alien
ray gun. (Anyone remember Moonlighting?)
The X-Files kept audiences coming back for more with a
continuing conspiracy involving an alien takeover of Earth and the evil Smoking
Man in addition to stand-alone Monster-of-the-Week episodes.
One such episode, Season Four’s Home, was so disturbing that the FOX Network did not rerun it.
