* SocietyMarchesOn: In "Blood", when it's learned that the latest mind-controlled potential spree killer got off the bus near the local college with his rifle, all the police do is send a couple of squad cars. These days even a ''potential'' threat would trigger a campus-wide lockdown - sirens blaring, security gates slamming, lights off and doors sealed and/or barricaded in the classrooms - and would ''only'' end after a full sweep for bombs or accomplices by the state police. In the show, it doesn't look like anyone even bothered to alert campus security.

* SocietyMarchesOn: In "Blood", when it's learned that the latest mind-controlled potential spree killer got off the bus near the college with his rifle, all the police do is send a couple of squad cars. All very dramatic at the time, but these days it'd be considered negligent foot-dragging: even a ''potential'' threat would trigger a campus-wide lockdown complete with sirens, security gates, lights off and doors locked in the classrooms, and a full sweep for bombs or accomplices by the state police.

** Both Doggett and Reyes are seen this way by many fans. Doggett got less of it, mostly due to Robert Patrick's performance; many fans like him as a supporting/recurring character and only disliked the fact that he replaced Mulder. Reyes wasn't as lucky. The chemistry this pair of agents had couldn't compare to the epic levels which Mulder and Scully had. Some fans who liked Doggett weren't happy when he didn't return for the 2016 revival and that Reyes did (not helped by the fact that Creator/RobertPatrick currently appears in the CBS series ''Series/{{Scorpion}}'').

** The nude exam scene between Scully and the other woman in "Ice" is rather tender.

** The character 'Deep Throat' gets his nickname from the Watergate informant. Mulder claims the shows' 'Deep Throat' is "...in the FBI". In RealLife, the 'real' 'Deep Throat' was later shown to be in the FBI.

** [[Recap/TheXFilesS04E12LeonardBetts Leonard Betts]], the cancer eating mutant. He doesn't ''want'' to hurt people and tried to only eat from corpses, but than he got exposed by a car accident and just couldn't fight the hunger anymore. Rob Roberts suffers from similar problems.
