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.
There are sixty-nine alien mythology episodes in the series. Season eight has the biggest amount, with ten of them coming from there. Only two episodes in season eight involving Mulder didn't focus on the mythology arc. There are also other episodes about extraterrestrials and alien abductions unrelated to the arc, such as Conduit and Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose.
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 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.
