The X-Files is a series about two FBI Special Agents, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, who take on cases of unexplained phenomena and uncover secret plots and conspiracies of their own up to the very top of the FBI. The original series ran from 1993 to 2002, with two films - one in 1998 and the other ten years later in 2008, and the 2016 “revival” is designed for viewers of the original series as well as newcomers. It’s a healthy combination of overarching mythology episodes as well as monster-of-the-week episodes that are fine as standalone watching experiences.
Special Agents Mulder and Scully investigating a possible conspiracy. The internet is much more sophisticated now than in 1993...
When you inevitably become curious about the different conspiracies covered in the show, you’ll want to visit the Social Sciences department at BPL's Central location. We have plenty of books and DVDs on topics ranging from UFOs to spirits, the paranormal to extraterrestrial life, and even government conspiracies.
Happy watching, and remember: the truth is out there.
