Two F.B.I. Agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, investigate the strange and unexplained, while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.
Gillian Anderson has the record of appearing in the most episodes of the series missing only the following five: Mulder's solo episode The X-Files: 3 (1994) (although Scully is briefly referred to in the dialogue), Skinner's episode The X-Files: Zero Sum (1997), The Lone Gunmen's episode The X-Files: Unusual Suspects (1997), the flashback episode The X-Files: Travelers (1998) and Agent Doggett's solo episode The X-Files: The Gift (2001).
Mulder/Scully? Let me have a word with you.
Mulder and Scully are shown in numerous episodes carrying a variety of handguns from Glocks to Smith & Wesson to SIG Sauers. FBI agents are issued one model of weapon for standard duty carry and they carry those models unless they are lost, unless the agent changes assignments or the entire Bureau changes the brand and model it is using.
In the main title sequence, the man in the photo pointing to the UFO in the shadowy night sky is Bruce Bryant -- one of the main title designers. He's also the stand-in for the wispy translucent ghost, shot using a negative effect in the hallway of their offices.
The 'previously on The X Files' segments are missing from the DVD Season boxset releases.
