Hi there! I've created a Parent Page for this wiki which can be found here: X-Files Parent Page. Parent Pages are the ultimate pop-culture guide for parents created by the fans that know pop culture best. We hope these pages will help parents make responsible and informed choices about what their kids consume. Feel free to add and edit! :)
I have been a fan of the X-Files since 1993. To this day, I still visit the fan-made X-Files websites on the Wayback Machine. The X-Files has been and still is my all-time favorite TV show. I definitely get immersed in it's world. This is one of the reason why I decided to contribute to X-Files wiki.
During a move, I found an old composition notebook full of notes I had taken of X-Files episodes. I found that my notes contained specific details that are not mentioned in some of the episode synopses. Perhaps not important information, but it is the little details that make me pause the episode and take a closer look or pay closer attention.
Thanks fantastic that you are a fan of The X-Files and have been since 1993! It's such a wonderful series that laid the blueprints for many shows that followed it. It's my favorite television series of all-time as well. Your old notebook filled with your own personal notes sounds like an excellent read. That's great that you discovered it once again. Please feel free to make as many edits as you please.
It is also wonderful that you visit many X-Files sites as well as this one. Thank you so very much for visiting and contributing on this wiki. We love to hear from fellow visitors and fans and talk about these pieces of art that Chris Carter and other writers have given to us.
Thank you for contacting me and allowing us to have this talk. I hope to hear from you soon and have fun surfing on this wiki and welcome!
Haven't seen you in a while here. Hope you are all right. You are missed.
Just wanted to let you know I had to delete the "Scully's Theme" video you had posted because the sound was cut off on it for copyright reasons and it was so with all youtube videos featuring this piece. I replaced it with a link to a grooveshark track instead. I added a photo from Deadalive in which the theme is heard to illustrate the article. Hope you are ok with it.
I am currently working on the French X-Files wiki's Hybrid page (I see you just did some work on it yourself here) and making it more detailed with each series of hybrid and their respective roles in the colonization project:
If you don't read French, it is divided into the following categories:
-The experiments and failures
-The scientist hybrids
-The bureaucrat hybrids
-The agrarian workforce
-The resistance movement
Do you think such a format would be appreciated on this wiki? I could expand the existing page with these categories, or since there are existing pages about the Samantha series, Gregor series, etc., perhaps it would only be redundant. But I think it would be interesting to have all the information about these beings in the same place to have a better understanding of them and of the colonization project as a whole.
Anyway, let me know what you think (and other contributors too).
All those points that you described is perfect. I wanted to expand the hybrid page but I was debating on how it should be done. You brought up an interesting way for the information to be expanded and detailed.
I went to the French X-Files Wiki and the information looks fantastic. I too am a linguist and I studies French for a few years. The information is dead on and looks great and the images all are perfect.
Looks like I may need to brush up on the information about the hybrids in the series. I love how Fox Mulder and Diana Fowley were one of the only FBI Agents to fully see the hybrids in their cyrotube form. Mulder also saw the hybrid on the armored-bomb rain in Season Three. I would like to add in information on that.
The adding in of information of Cassandra Spender is great as well. But of course, we need to bring up the Cigarette Smoking Man's role as well as the alien rebels.
But otherwise, everything looks great. I would love to help you make the page look fantastic.
I discovered this article online written by a French fan, and he sure did an amazing research job trying to connect all the dots! I don't exactly know which parts are his own interpretations and which parts are the actual story meant by the X-Files authors, but it's sure worth a look:
Oh wow. Reading the passages and looking at the photos brought back memories.
Yes, the writer/editor should visit this site and help out with placing in information. I believe, the Hybrid page on this wiki should look as good as the other with similar details and information. I love what you have done with the page so far. We can reach out more.
Thank you for showing me that page. It was inspiring. Let's try to make almost every information and page not too detailed, but detailed to the point where it tells every important piece of information and it is eye-catching.
Now, thanks to you, I think I am going to watch an episode of The X-Files right now.
I have a question for you, or for any other American editor here. In the "I want to believe" film, why does the mysterious X-Files theme music play when Mulder and Scully first meet with the investigation team at the FBI building and look at a portrait of George W. Bush and then J. Edgar Hoover? As if there was a conspiracy thing there or something. Is this an American inside joke? I don't quite understand.
Well how do I say this without offending some users and readers.
Back in 2001, the September 11th terrorist attacks took place in three different States in America. After the terrible inccident, President George W. Bush, at the time, declared a War on Terrorism against al-Qaeda that we, the Americans, are still having conflict with today.
There is a conspiracy with some people claiming that the attacks on 9/11 were staged and was a set up by the terrorist and the government in the United States knew about the attacks, but did nothing as they would use the event as a reason to go to war with them. Some people even claimed that Bush lied to many workers and the press just to keep his career and the war still in progress. Of course, this is a conspiracy theory. Meaning that this is not confirmed.
A few years ago, former CIA operative, Valerie Plame Wilson, accused Bush for lying to the press after claiming that there were nuclear weapons in Niger, Africa, when Wilson's husband was there and found nothing. This event costed her career and she was let go from the CIA. This is a true story. Valerie Plame Wilson wrote an autobiography about her life and her experience and they made a film based off of the real event. Read the book and/or see the film.
Many Americans, including some of my family, were agnry at Bush for putting us in this War on Terror that should have never happened.
The reason why they played the X-Files tune during that scene in the film is because of two reasons. One is that it was a joke saying Bush is an alien and made those decisions based on some odd plan that he has or for other reasons. The second reason why, is because of the real conspiracy theory going around even to this day. Howeve, the tune was played for that scene to be a comedic moment.
As for J. Edgar Hoover, he developed the FBI so, they probably played the theme saying he must be an alien as well because of why he would allow the X-Files Unit to be within this government agency unless he knew about the existence of extraterrestrials. Or maybe, he was an extraterrestrial himself.
This is all not confirmed and the tune being played int he film was for a few laughs. But I don't think it is fully an American thing.
Ok, thanks. I have heard about these conspiracy theories up here too. I even saw a disturbing documentary about bombs being placed within the buildings prior to the skyscrapers' destruction and the recorded phone calls of the plane passengers being staged.
A lot of nice edits there in the last couple of days. I just feel I need to praise people once in a while so they don't forget their efforts are greatly appreciated. Added a lot of pictures and you're always fixing up pages I make that may be lacking in some way, like the References page. I'll try to think to add more links in the future, I don't want you to have to clean up my sloppy work so often anymore. Like the references page I probably should have linked up a bit.
Thanks. Yeah, there are so many references. The four I put there would be great to get some video content for. The Simpsons one in particular. There is a scene where the Cigarette Smoking Man is in the background, Scully has Homer hooked up to a lie detector.
Is that going to be difficult to make those templates? I'm not that great on the programming. Like I'm trying to get Sony Vegas to work but it keeps crashing. It will be a hell of a battle I imagine to fix it and get it to work.
Yeah, I like this place more every day. Getting more contributors every day. More pages and more pictures all the time. Given that some of the fan sites are dying (like X-Files Universe), and that we are starting to add forums and so on, we may become the most frequented X-Files site in the long run.
I wrote an article on Enoch O'Connor without realizing one had already been published (there was a confusion with the apostrophe typing). I left the new page empty and linked other pages to the existing one, but the new one must be deleted. Thanks!
It's great to be back. About the badges. Well personally I don't think they are necessary. They could be used to promote editing and such, but we shouldn't create wrong ideas and what not. So personally, I wouldn't want them. This is a site for editing fun and helping out others.
I am the guy in the far background of the pic when Krycek is introducing himself to Mulder. I'm the extra in the dark suite standing over the the fellow sitting down in the white shirt. In this scene they had the two us pretend to go over what were in fact real photo's of criminal mug shots. This scene was filmed at Northshore Studio's in the District of North Vancouver, BC.
Nicholas Lea would take time out to talk with us extra's between scenes while David would simply get up and walk out. I remember this scene took a lot of takes to do. David would mess up his lines, then next, Nic would mess up. On one take, the lines were perfect but then a female extra accidently dropped a file of papers all over the floor as she walked by the actors. We had to do the scene all over again. I heard alot of " BACK GROUND, ACTION ! " that day. Lot's of fun though......
Really? That's amazing. If only I could be an extra in a Third X-Files film. But yes, David would be the one to say his line incorrectly. But hey, he is a lead actor so there must be pressure on him. That's awesome that you were an extra.
