The truth is, the nits are out there....

What's weird about Samantha T. Mulder's birthday?

(She has two of them: January 22 and November 21.)

What's amazing about Mulder's cell phone?

(It operates inside a metal boxcar, buried in a canyon, out in the deserts of New Mexico: anywhere!)

Scully and Mulder, you have reason to be paranoid.  Armed with keen detective sense, attention to detail, and a VCR, author Phil Farrand has done some forensic work of his ownííand dissected every technical foul-up, plot oversight, and alien intrusion on the X-Files(r).  Paranormal he's not, but he'd like to know why T.A. Berube has a six-digit zip code or how the VCRs at the 2400 Court motel in Braddock Heights, Maryland, can play a tape after it's been ejected.  Nitpicking?  You bet.  So join his conspiracy to have hours of mental stimulation and fun with:

Equipment flubs

Changed premises

Plot oversights

Fun facts

Trivia questions

Reviews of every show for all four seasons

And more

Review:

For those fans who think they know everything about The X-Files, The Nitpicker's Guide for X-Philes may hold some surprises. From equipment flubs and plot oversights to changed premises and fun facts, author Phil Farrand covers the first four seasons with full reviews of every episode. Why is it that the character T.A. Berube has a six-digit zip code? How could Samantha Mulder, agent Mulder's missing sister, have two birthdays? And how about the VCR in the "Wetwired" episode that continues to play a videotape after the video has been ejected. Compiled with the Nitpicker's Prime Directive in mind, "All nits picked shall derive from sources the creaters consider canonical," as well as the Secondary Directive, "all nitpickers shall perform their duties with lightheartedness and good cheer." The Nitpicker's Guide for X-Philes is a thorough, dense read for the dedicated X-Files fan looking for a little fun and a lot of facts.
