X-Files 101 - Fandom Hangouts.


Our fandom is old, huge, and these days, very scattered. Gone are the days when we all gathered on alt.tv.x-files. Nowadays we have websites, boards, and social networks aplenty. It’s enough to make a newbie’s head spin. So I’ve asked the folks over at Haven to help me come up with a list of places where Philes go. I hope you find it useful.

Why Should I Go There? Because it’s pretty much The Mothership. It’s been around, in various forms, since the early years of the fandom. Long time fans who hang out there have an encyclopedic knowledge of all things X-Files. It’s a great platform for in depth discussions. Back in the days, High Drama meant that the place earned itself a bad rep. Let’s hope those days are over.The large majority of ...Read more

The X-Files is a Peabody, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning American science fiction television series created by Chris Carter, which first aired on September 10, 1993, and ended on May 19, 2002. Running for 9 seasons, the show was a hit for the Fox Broadcasting Company network, and its main characters and slogans (e.g., "The Truth Is Out There", "Trust No One", "I Want to Believe") became pop culture touchstones. The X-Files is seen as a defining series of the 1990s, coinciding with the era's widespread mistrust of governments, interest in conspiracy theories and spirituality, and the belief in the existence of extraterrestrial life. TV Guide called The X-Files the Second greatest cult television show and the 37th best television show of all time. In 2007, Time magazine included it on a list of the "100 Best TV Shows of All Time." In 2008, Entertainment Weekly named it Classic Sci-fi and the fourth best TV show in the last 25 years. This long running FOX drama lasted nine seasons and focused on the exploits of FBI Agents Fox Mulder, Dana Scully, John Doggett and Monica Reyes and their investigations into the paranormal. From genetic mutants and killer insects to a global conspiracy concerning the colonisation of Earth by an alien species, this mind-boggling, humourous and occasionally frightening series created by Chris Carter has been one of the world's most popular sci-fi/drama shows since its humble beginnings in 1993. The show has also spawned two movies, The X-Files Movie in 1998 and I Want To Believe in 2008. So sit back and enjoy the fascinating world of The X-Files. The entire nine seasons of The X-Files are now available on DVD! As well has hundreds of books written about the show.
