25 years ago today, The X-Files premiered on Fox. The supernatural TV classic filmed its first five seasons in Vancouver, as well as the rebooted 10th and 11th seasons, and if you look closely you can spot our beautiful city all throughout the show. If you’ve lived in Vancouver for the past 25 years, you’ve probably got your own X-Files tale. Maybe you saw Gillian Anderson ordering a coffee or almost ran over David Duchovny while he was crossing the street? Maybe you worked on the show or know someone who did? Or maybe you just loved following Scully and Mulder in their relentless pursuit of the truth? No matter what your connection to the show, it has become a piece of Vancouver pop culture history.
