Barnes & Noble - Pete Segall
In Season 1 we are introduced to FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), a young, eager investigator, haunted by his sister's abduction by aliens in his youth, assigned to a little known FBI area called "The X-Files," crimes believed to be linked to the paranormal. Enter Dr. Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), skeptic, a doctor and FBI instructor, now tabbed to keep an eye on Mulder and his unorthodox missions. At first, many viewers agreed with Scully's uncertainty about mysteries involving UFOs and ghosts, as The X-Files struggled mightily in its early seasons to find an audience as a place to flourish in the malleable primeline lineup of the nascent Fox Network. However, as is the case with many cult hits, when network execs threatened to exorcise the show from the airwaves, a vigorous fan-base suddenly made itself heard and people realized that The X-Files had developed a rapidly growing following. At its heart an old-fashioned detective show, Mulder and Scully's policework almost seemed like a newfangled Dragnet with a sci-fi/horror twist. But the program was blessed with dedicated writers who could craft intriguing alien-and-devil stories that were firmly grounded in everyday life. A bit of the mundane was added to the extraordinary, and the result left sci-fi junkies and cop show fans disaffected by the paucity of quality detectiving at the time thrilled. Compared with the globetrotting, world-saving adventures Mulder and Scully take to today, the first season may seem slightly tame, but nevertheless are prime examples of the quality show fans and critics have come to love. In "Conduit," a young boy is believed to channel extraterrestrial transmissions after his sister is abducted by aliens. In "Eve," a pair of girls, identical results of a government genetic experiment and now foster children in different parts of the country, begin killing their way to freedom. "Miracle Man" features a fundamentalist preacher in Tennessee who may have a "touch of death," the ability to kill on contact. And in "Beyond the Sea," Scully, distraught at her father's recent death, becomes intrigued by the psychic visions of a condemned killer (Brad Dourif). Given The X-Files runaway success today, it's especially interesting to look back at its fiesty origins.
