I'll second this. I happened to catch this no-name show on Friday nights
while in high school five years ago. I've loved it ever since.

But our friend Chris Carter has generously provided us with a balance in
Agent Scully. A medical doctor with years of thorough scientific training,
she was taken to the brink of death with this inoperable naso-pharyngeal
cancer, and one of the four possible reasons for her remission was...

(Then again, the more believable reason was the reimplantation of the
tracking chip in her neck...)

I found the one with the cryonic neuro-suspension patient controlling his
still-living autistic brother mildly amusing, as well.

the aliens.

Future... I'm _so_ sure...)
