The Nitpicker's Guide for X-Philes by Phil Farrand

The truth is, the nits are out there....

What's weird about Samantha T. Mulder's birthday?

(She has two of them: January 22 and November 21.)

What's amazing about Mulder's cell phone?

(It operates inside a metal boxcar, buried in a canyon, out in the deserts of New Mexico: anywhere!)

Scully and Mulder, you have reason to be paranoid. Armed with keen detective sense, attention to detail, and a VCR, author Phil Farrand has done some forensic work of his own and dissected every technical foul-up, plot oversight, and alien intrusion on the X-Files(r). Paranormal he's not, but he'd like to know why T.A. Berube has a six-digit zip code or how the VCRs at the 2400 Court motel in Braddock Heights, Maryland, can play a tape after it's been ejected. Nitpicking? You bet. So join his conspiracy to have hours of mental stimulation and fun with:

Equipment flubs

Changed premises

Plot oversights

Fun facts

Trivia questions

Reviews of every show for all four seasons

And more

I've had this book for years and keep it within easy reach for any (and every) viewing of 'The X-Files.' I never get tired of following along during an episode with my trusty copy. I am also constantly amazed at the findings and the details that Phil Farrand has put into this amazing book.
