What's the one with Scully's talking tattoo? I love that one, despite knowing it's pretty awful.

I believe you're thinking of Never Again Scully does get a tattoo in that ep but it doesn't talk. Jodie Foster is the voice of "Betty" the tattoo. I watched Dreamland 1 & 2 last night, what a great pair of episodes. The X Files always did great "funny ones"

I like the one with (I think) vampires. Scully and Mulder's different accounts of them meeting a policeman.
In Mulder's the policeman is all goofy toothed and Scully is giggling schoolgirl fawning over him,
In Scully's version it's a good looking cop and I think Mulder is being a dick.

If I had the time I'd go back and watch all of these, I tuned out about the time the film came out.

That's Bad Blood.

Watching the New York Paley interview, it's great.

Yeah sorry but thats a great episode don't know where you get the awful from? You see a different side to the Scully character, and its oddly desturbing. One of the highlights of Season four which for me maybe one of the best seasons overall.

Yeah Mulder goes off on an Elvis pilgrimage or something and leaves Scully to meet the guy with that tattoo; it's pretty good.


Just watching the voodoo episode Fresh Bones which is pretty creepy as well as the two-parter Colony/End Game. The mythos/conspiracy stuff is convoluted but it's a good one, I always liked the bounty hunter character.


Their first less than serious episode Humbug is coming up, I will have to see if it holds up after all this time.

As I said before, I never managed to keep up with The X-Files but I've always wanted to know: did Sculder ever get stuck into Gillian Anderson or what?

So am on Season three on my re-watch and just the other day I watched the wonderfully weird Jose Chung's "From Outer Space" episode. It is one which gets better on every viewer and is just so experimental narrative wise. It shouldn't work but just does, and the casting of Jesse Vantura is inspired!

On a side note I am hoping to see Anderson in the new production of A Street Car Named Desire in London over the next month. Think its the perfect part for her, and can see her really dominating the stage.

It's been doing the rounds the last few days. http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3304763/tv-theyve-talked-rebooting-x-files/
Anderson also has a book coming out.

Chris Carter did an interview a couple of weeks ago where he confirmed there had been "conversations". Can't say I'm particularly keen, although I'd certainly give it a go if it was to happen. Big "if" I think though.

Ah, Gillian.

http://www.bustle.com/articles/43905-a-new-x-files-movie-and-11-other-things-gillian-anderson-revealed-during-her-reddit-ama

Anderson is very vehement about this. Probably because shes been asked a trillion times. She writes, BAD BLOOD!! HOW MANY FUCKING TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY? Yep. All caps.

Anderson in Ghostbusters would be sweet, guess she would have to play one of the straight comic roles, but when you see the wit between
her and Fox in the X-Files I can see her working well with more seasoned comic actors.

Just wondering what people are making of this talk of possibly doing another X Files series that is doing the rounds.

My first thoughts:

- eeeeeeek, exciting! ---- quickly replaced by:
- what? that old dog has had its day, and the last 2 seasons were a bit pooh really ---- then:
- I am pretty sure Anderson at least, and possibly even Duchovny, has all but said "hell no" when it's been mentioned in the past.

I guess my main thought it I can't see why Anderson & Duchovny would actually want to do it again, it's not like they got on that famously anyway and they have both gone onto great things, Anderson especially has really done some amazing stuff and I find it hard to believe that she would want to go from doing The Fall to The X Files.

That said, if they made one, I would watch it. If they made it without Anderson & Duchovny, I would probably still watch it, not for the name of "The X-Files" but because I like the genre really, but they would have to make it really bloody good.

No think they should leave it alone now. Despite the fact that the original series may have gone on a couple of seasons too long, it has still stood the test of time as one of the most groundbreaking cult shows around. Another series would risk messing with that. I don't think the actors would be too interested anyway like you said.

Considering both the final episode, and the last movie both left me thinking they never actually ended the story, I'd say... please, please, please make this happen. Even if it sucks, I hate being left in the lurch like that... did they manage to stop colonisation? If so, how? If not, what's life on earth like now? etc. etc.

Any time I've read or heard Anderson doing press (since 2002-about last year) it's always been a flat out no to more episodes. I think that's been a clear cut choice for her for personal and creative reasons. Moving to the UK, getting far away from Scully type roles and the shows legacy. Hence her doing Bleak House and stage work, thats before any current success with The Fall and Hannibal. I don't blame her. Films are a different matter.

Ive mixed feelings. On the one hand Im dead set against it. The show was very much of its time (90s, yo!), it had something to say and then bowed out. Were now post-Snowden revelations and I dunno if the show can contribute here. Of course, if it goes ahead Ill watch it. I'd guess that informal talks (or talks about talks ) have been going on for a while now. As for the stories, I'd prefer standalone. The Truth was a bag of shite as a finale. I think more conspiracy would turn casual viewers off. Mind you, IWTB wasn't a great success (I didn't hate it), but part of that was poor marketing, opening against The Dark Knight. Can't really see us getting 12 episodes a la 24: LAD, but it'll likely be cheaper than a film.

Gillian Anderson did 13 episodes of Crisis in addition to her stints on Hannibal and whenever The Fall was actually filmed, so I wouldn't be entirely surprised if she's willing to go back to The X-Files, so in fact a 24-esque 12 episode resurrection is exactly the sort of thing I could see them doing to be honest. I'd certainly be interested in it. There's nothing that's quite filled in the void it left; shows have taken parts of The X-Files' spectrum of storytelling (Supernatural most obivously, but that doesn't have aliens) but never the full range.

Gillian Anderson definitely won't be an obstacle. Apparently the whole thing was instigated by her saying in a recent interview that she wants to do more episodes, followed by a popular hashtag on Twitter (#TheXFiles2015) which made Fox take notice and start seriously considering bringing it back... but only if they can get David Duchovny and Chris Carter back on board, too. Duchovny's already said he'd do it, so it's just a wait for Carter to decide. I don't see him refusing.

Yeah, her interview on Nerdist got the hashtag going, although I don't think it made Fox become interested directly, simply made the the rumours about talks public. There are one or two execs there that basically rose through the ranks of Fox around the time X Files was on, and have a positive relationship with Chris Carter. Dana Walden, iirc. I was a little surprised at Gillian's enthusiasm re asking things like 'do you think people would watch it, what should it be about?', etc, as per the interview.

Me too in recent years she has found her feet in other television projects, and also does the odd film and stage play. Would say that she has had the better post-Files career out of her DD, and Carter. If both actors are on board then I can't really see Carter saying no. I still say it should be left alone, but would watch it natually.
