The Movie: The X-Files: Fight the Future (1998)
What Is It?: Chris Carter’s paranoia was just too big to limit to the little screen, so he gave Mulder and Scully a chance to grapple with aliens, cancer men, and each other in a feature film released between the series’ drab fifth season and its epic yet goofy sixth one. The cinematic allowances of bigger special effects and a couple of cuss words (Mulder says “shit”!) are evident, yet it's still Mulder and Scully’s intimate chemistry that made this movie worth leaving your sofa for.
Why Today?: On this day in 1960, David Duchovny is born.
