Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Corrected entry: The CSM wants to publish his book. It is quite odd that he has to submit it to some publishing houses and suffers from being ridiculed. Using his practically infinite power he could publish or just order to publish the story whenever he pleases. (00:23:10)

Correction: CSM's writing means a great deal to him, and while he must certainly be aware that he has the power to have his stories published, it's highly likely that like many creatives, he simply wants them to be wanted on their own merit.


Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Corrected entry: This episode contradicts the season 2 episode "Apocrypha" where young CSM was seen in the 1950's with Bill Mulder as already a shadowy agent and smoking. This episode has CSM still a young man and not part of the Syndicate in 1963, and does not smoke yet. Also this episode fails to mention anything about the conspiracy with an alien species which is one of the key features about the CSM.

Correction: Melvin is simply guessing at some of the details, he probably got some of those incorrect details from the story that Carl Gerhard Busch wrote, which is because the main character is based on himself, and how would you keep your involvement in an alien conspiracy hidden from the public if anyone could find out who you are?

Correction: This whole episode is based solely on Frohike's guesses about CSM, so obviously, he was wrong on some details.
