    no, I'd say the movie has nothing to do with the series. The series is more about ET's and the movie is more unexplained phenomena.

    I haven't watched the movie (yet :smile:), but Chris Carter stated it was meant to be a stand alone product. :22:

    I liked the series more than the movie actually.

    The X-Files (my wife, the sci-fi junkie, got me hooked on it) t.v. series was a blend of a continuing e.t. storyline with occasional stories about other (unrelated) unexplained phenomena.

    The first movie was a kind of continuation of the e.t. storyline whereas the second was indeed a stand alone story. I personally preferred the first.

    Nah, you should be good to go. About the only thing you may not understand is why Mulder and Scully are no longer FBI agents. It isn't a big deal as long as you are willing to let those facts go and accept that they aren't FBI agents anymore and that Mulder is a fugitive.

    I was really disappointed in the latest X-Files movie. It probably killed the franchise IMO! Loved the series and was just going to start watching it again to kill some time. It's good until about season 7 when Mulder dissapeared and the "Cigarette Smoking Man" is one of the TV villians all-time - again IMO...
