That's too bad. The X Files will probably be remembered as being one of the most influencial series ever to be on television.
The mix of the paranormal, UFOs, conspiracy theory, government operatives, unrequited love, created an atmosphere in which there was something for practically everyone.
The show sure ended strangely. They were afraid to cut it off neatly and it went two full seasons too long...and practically as a whole different show too.
Catch some of the Lone Gunmen shows if you can. They're worth watching. One was eerie since it dealt with 911 before 911 happened and made conspiracy theory very spooky.
Also worth watching was the Millenium series which had a crossover episode.
