It was the decade that gave us OJ, Lewinsky, Seinfeld and Titanic, but also a robust economy and relative peace, and now the 1990s are getting their due.

National Geographic Channel is airing a six-part miniseries called The ‘90s: The Last Great Decade?, which examines the politics, pop culture and emerging technology of the era. Few television programs were as influential then as The X-Files, which ran for nine seasons, spawned two movies, and had Americans looking to the skies.

Show creator Chris Carter has moved on to Amazon Studios’ series The After, but he has made some time to remember Scully, Mulder and The Smoking Man with us.
