Former high school classmates are turning up dead in strange places from no apparent cause. On their lower backs, though, are these warty little things that aren't acne.
Yikes. Looks like the work of a serial alien.
Premiering at 9 tonight on Fox (Channels 11 and 6), "The X-Files" is a sort of alien busters , a not-to-be-taken-seriously hour in which a pair of FBI sleuths investigate unexplained cases that appear to involve paranormal phenomena.
For some reason, maverick agent Fox Mulder's creepy superiors want to discredit his probes of the allegedly supernatural. So they assign Mulder (David Duchovny) a partner to spy on him to help them debunk his work. She's agent Dana Scully (Gilliam Anderson), a medical doctor and a skeptic. She's a scientist, he's a romantic. She has doubts, he has answers.
Their first case together (a routine investigation into aliens controlling humans through nose implants) takes them to an Oregon town where Mulder believes the victims with warts were abducted before dying.
