Mulder and Scully return: Are you psyched?
Sometime in late 1996 — shortly after I got EW’s exhaustive X-Files episode-guide issue in the mail at college — I decided to sit down and actually watch an episode of the show. It didn’t take. The whole ridiculous hour focused on killer cockroaches, and I’m not sure I even made it to the end before I sought out something more exciting to do — like my Biology I homework, or my laundry. I’ve since discovered that the cockroach episode, “War of the Coprophages,” is both a B-movie horror spoof (TOTALLY didn’t get that) and an X-Files classic. Maybe someday I’ll go back and watch the DVDs…
In the meantime, I guess I didn’t get too excited to discover that Agent Mulder’s been gabbing this week about making another X-Files movie. (I saw the first one back in summer of 1998, and I only remember thinking: Godzilla was better.) On Saturday, David Duchovny let it slip at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills that he’s supposed to see a script for a new X-Files movie in a week or so. He says he’s on board, Gillian Anderson’s on board, and Chris Carter’s also on board and ready to direct. So. Obvious questions. Who out there (1) is still a fan of The X-Files? And (2) is excited for this?
