During the 1990s and early 2000s this was one of the most creative and original series on television. It had a loyal following and won several awards. Many series have featured the FBI and an investigative partnership but this was the only one that dealt with cases that involved unexplainable phenomenon, government conspiracy and the possibility of alien entities. Special Agent Fox Mulder (played by David Duchovny) has earned the nickname Spooky Mulder around the FBI due to his obsession with strange cases and insistence that there are aliens out there. In order to keep tabs on his investigation the FBI assigns young female agent Dana Scully (played by Gillian Anderson). Agent Scully is a medical doctor who strongly doubts anything that science cannot prove. Despite their differences Mulder and Scully form a strong partnership based on trust. Both become determined to uncover the truth.
