THE X-FILES is a one-hour drama about an unconventional FBI agent, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). Mulder takes it upon himself to investigate a group of unsolved cases, known as the "X-Files," that he believes involve paranormal phenomena. To keep tabs on his work--and in the hopes of debunking his theories--the FBI teams him up with Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), a young, skeptical agent who has a degree in medicine and a strong bias toward the scientific.
As the pair works to solve these unexplained cases, Mulder's strong belief in the forces of the unknown continues to challenge Scully's rational mind. Their relationship grows more complex with each case, slowly emerging as a heady mix of professional competitiveness, witty repartee, and a mutual attraction that is heightened by the intensity of their tasks and the close proximity in which they work.
