It didn't take creator Chris Carter long to dive into the mytholgical murk. The first post-"Pilot" episode, "Deep Throat" takes FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) to a hush-hush military base to meet an informer. More importantly, "It's the first X-Files where you learn the government is definitely involved with aliens," testifies executive producer Frank Spotnitz. The rest, as they say, is history.In a side-bar story, The X-Files' opening credits also ranks as one of the best ever.
Mark Snow's moody music seems like the evil inverse of The Andy Griffith Show's whistling, as spooky visuals inform us that Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) aren't your everyday FBI agents.David Duchovny's other show "Twin Peaks" is number 57. There was a similar story in the US People magazine a while back, but this list had a lot of Australian content. The X-Files did quite well for a "cult" show that isn't rating particularly well!
Off The TrackFor out-of-state and overseas readers, Carl Scully is a New South Wales minister in the Carr government. Useless piece of trivia: I've actually met Carl Scully : )
Bob Carr reckons his first television ad about train security looks like something out of the X-Files. "As Fox Mulder would say 'The truth is out there'," he joked with reporters.
But when asked if Scully would be joining him on the campaign trail he looked blankly and said "good question". A conspiracy theory is growing that Carr hasn't actually seen the TV show.
