The Vancouver Days of the X-Files

After watching Sunday's finale episode, I pulled out my "X Marks the Spot" book to reminisce about the "good ol'days" when the X-Files was filmed in Vancouver - which was seasons 1-5. This book, written by Louisa Gradnitzer and Todd Pittson (who were location managers on the X-Files for 5 years) and an introduction by Tom Braidwood (also known as Frohike of the Lone Gunmen), shows the viewer the places that the X-Files filmed in Vancouver, a map to show where they are located and behind the scene facts about the episodes. What is great about this book, it is split into seasons and episodes so that you can find your favorite episode, what locations were used for it and trivia about the filming of it. This book also contains black and white behind the scenes photos featuring the cast, crew, buildings, props, cast parties and the final shots from Vancouver, which closes the book. This book is a must if you're an X-Phile planning on visiting Vancouver.

Excellent Inside Info For Fans

This book was an excellent read for myself, an X-Files fan and a resident of Vancouver. It expresses the love and dedication that all the X-Files crew members had for the show.Anyone who likes the X-Files will get a kick out of reading the various stories behind acquiring all the locations for the show. A synopsis of *every* episode shot in BC is given, making this a useful episode guide as well.After reading the book, I can say I am truly lucky to live in a city that stood for so many diverse places during the X-Files run.

A unique and interesting approach

This entertaining and educational book shows us the development of a great TV series from a unique perspective rarely seen before: the Locations department. The first 5 seasons of The X-Files are brought to life behind the scenes with the people on the front line. The book is filled with lots of great and funny stories about the adventures of the Locations folks and their desire to turn Vancouver and environs into numerous settings across the U.S. and around the world while simultaneously enabling the producers and directors to make top-notch television. Highly recommended.

Great behind the scenes look

Great look at what goes on behind the making of the X-Files. From set and actor problems to the interesting adventures with Vancouver locals. X-Philers and fans of the show will love this inside look.

A must for X-Files fans.

This is a great book not only for diehard fans of The X-Files, but also anyone interested in the behind the scenes making of a weekly TV series. It's got lots of on-set photos that I'd never seen before as well as the scoop on how each episode from the first 5 years were filmed. More than a fan book, I'd say.
