A Paranoid Rummage Through The X-Files
By Paul Cornell, Martin Day, and Keith Topping
The classic unauthorised guide to the ever-popular X-FILES series, now available again in its expanded edition!
'Open your mind to extreme possibilities'
Scully's desire to be recognised as 'a medical doctor', ooze, mouthfuls of difficult dialogue and the tendency for characters not to make it through the pre-titles sequence were just a few of the tragically underexamined elements of THE X-FILES phenomenon - until the first edition of this book. Now the authors take their study of televisions weirdest show through to the end of series five, and THE X-FILES movie.
X-TREME POSSIBILITIES presents a unique analysis of the programme that transformed US television. While sometimes witty and light-hearted, this volume is also a serious study of the elements that made the show such a success. As well as a detailed episode guide of the first five seasons, the book pieces together the nature of the series' Conspiracy - and attempts to discover just what the truth is.
Never before has THE X-FILES been put under such focused, affectionate and bizarre scrutiny.
Please note this new release of the second edition has not been updated.
Paul Cornell, Martin Day and Keith Topping have written 5 TV guides together, all of which are now being republished under the SFGateway imprint.
