Did FOX influence the public with the popular series X-Files?

I saw that Xfiles 2 is coming out soon so it reminded me of the movie and the series. i dont remember it to the detail because i saw it years ago. I thought of how it ended and remembered that mulder was "crazy" enough to kill him self at the end because the government wanted him to believe in the unexplained. so what im getting to is if FOX did this on purpose so if people believe that most theories are made-up and "cant happen because its on tv".

also i was wondering what true theories did they touch on.

I watched X-Files a lot. I am pretty sure that Mulder did not kill himself.

I see your point and agree, good post.

Another reason could have been to ready the public for disclosure. Time will tell.

Truthfully I think all the stories where based on real life things or events.

The X-Files, at least in my opinion, did a brilliant job of bringing the exploration of the paranormal to a head in our culture. As a devote fan of the show for years, my interest in science came from watching the show and wanting answers about the paranormal phenomenon and conspiracies, because I was somehow convinced there were answers, just well covered.

Now, about the matter of Mulder's suicide...as the X-Philes are often quoted as saying "No one REALLY dies on The X-Files", the fate of both Mulder AND Scully, at the end of the series, was that they were running from the government. I think the idea of Mulder potentially committing suicide would have been an interesting plot twist. I mean, the last two seasons, he wasn't in the picture much anyway...

but I go off on tangents so...yeah.

X-Files, a show dear to my heart.

I couldn't get enough of it when it was on, used to watch it almost every nite in syndication.

Still watch em on VHS from time to time (keep wanting to get the on DVD, but never think of it when I'm out)

Some of what was produced seemed a bit 'out there', but overall I think they touched on almost all aspects of the unexplained. With some plausible explanations.

*snip*. that's where I first heard mention of the Chupacabra.

As far as the new movie you mentioned, X-Files II, do you have a link?

Needless to say - anything created has its purpose.

Entertainment & disclosure possibly?

Everything you see and know influences your decisions.

However, personally I believe that it wasn't about disclosure and rather about the opposite. Making it fiction.

It was an interesting that you asked if anyone knows if it has touched any theories but without being a die-hard its hard to remember. I would assume that the X-Files did indeed carry out research from abductees and such.

I really hope they do this would be cool
, one of my all time fav shows Dark Skies did something similar with UFO's and history putting them together to explain history, but it was pulled off air some say because it was way to close to the truth. IMO it was

umm,when exactly did mulder die?


i have the *entire* nine seasons on DVD ,and you can be sure of the fact that mulder doesnt die,in the series or movie
,the series finale ends with mulder and scully being on the run after mulder escapes his death sentence and the last scene with mulder and scully in a room and mulder saying "Maybe theres hope"


THE END.

p.s:i just watched the entire series again two days ago so i know what am talking bout



Edit:i still consider it to be one of the most influential and intelligent series ever conceived

are you kiddin me?did you even see the movie????he didnt committ suicide ,not even in the movie,man either you have a very bad memory or youve seen the wrong movie coz i saw even the movie a few days back and watched it like 3-4 times and thrers NO "suicide"
and ...............he committed suicide coz the " *government* wanted *him* to believe in UFO's?"

man,that just cracked me up
dude,the whole point was he *already* believed in the UFO's,he wanted the "government" to acknowledge it

there was no car scene in the end,the movie ends with mulder going to antartica to save scully ,in the process discovering a secret lab run by the CSM. The lab is destroyed just after they escape to the surface, when the alien ship lying dormant underneath comes back to life and leaves its underground port, zooming away into the sky. With scully unconscious, only mulder sees its escape.

hope that helps!

man,that was loads of off-topic posts


p.s:-i didnt see the movie 3-4 times in a single day,thats my collective total
