The X-Files is the story of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, two FBI agents investigating the paranormal. The show features stand-alone "freak of the week" episodes, as well as a complex overarching mythology about alien visitation and experimentation and a massive government conspiracy to cover up The Truth. The show was that rarest of breeds: a minor sci-fi cult hit that became a major network success. Starting out in the Friday "death slot" on FOX in 1993, The X-Files flew under the radar for its first season, then suddenly exploded in the ratings in its second season. Its combination of creepy, scary stories and anti-government paranoia -- not to mention the great partnership between the leads -- captured the imaginations of millions of loyal X-Philes, and eventually earned the show a marquee time slot on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m., where it stayed until its conclusion in 2002.
