The series also attracted a lot of actors and actresses who were quite famous even before the series came on: Jodie Foster, Cary Elwes, Robert Patrick, John Neville, Peter Boyle, Burt Reynolds, Frances Fisher, Roy Thinnes, Minnie Driver, Garry Shandling, Lance Henriksen, Lily Tomlin, Edward Asner, Lily Taylor, and Mimi Rogers.
Sure, fine, whatever.
In numerous episodes in the earlier seasons, characters are seen driving cars with British Columbia License plates.
In the main title for the ninth season, a piece of paper flashes across the screen listing "FBI Contacts: Witnesses and Contributors." The names on the list are screen names of the series' on-line fans. For episodes #9.01-#9.11, the names were randomly picked from various X-Files message boards. For episodes #9.12-#9.19, the names came from contest entries.
The 'previously on The X Files' segments are missing from the DVD Season boxset releases.
