I really love this show, and I think both Scully and Mulder are awesome role models. I think that parents of kids under 11 or 12 though should check the show out first, and hand pick the episodes deemed appropriate. Some episodes like Squeeze or Ascension can be pretty scary, while others like Beyond the Sea has mild language (Scully uses the B word). Gender Bender and 2Shy are others that may be censored. On the other hand, female empowerment is a major theme in the show, as Scully is almost always the one to tough talk someone who's in their way, the first one to step into a scary room with a monster lurking inside, and always provides the voice of reason. She's been a role model of mine since I started watching the X Files, and she and Mulder inspired me to become an FBI agent. Parents, I highly suggest showing this show to your kids, and as once they turn 12, everything should be considered appropriate.
