THIS IS A BLOG - IT IS THE FIRST AND THE LAST

I want to address the recent confusion around whether or not I enjoyed working on the X-Files which seems to have stemmed from out-takes of interviews past present and future as far as I can work out. I don't even know where to begin but I need to keep it short and with my claws in.

My experience is that whether I am asked about the X-Files or not in an interview, details about the series and my previous comments about the series are included in the text.

If I am asked about the series, and I ask to not stay too long on the subject due to the fact that I am promoting something else, I am frequently made out to be moody/abrupt/rude/dismissive you name it. If I do talk about the series, which I recently did as it was blatantly clear that the interviewer did not like the film I was promoting, I try to make it light and fun and not repeat myself as even I am sick of hearing the same old yarn.

What usually happens is that they ask about the long hours - I say yes they were long - they say, but you have said that at times it was a living hell and I say, yes at times it was... it was insane and long and wet and all that but there were good times too - and then the interviewer says provocatively - as if I'm either an idiot for staying in the series under such conditions or an idiot for saying it was so challenging when clearly it wasn't because I stayed - why didn't you get out? And my response which is as much incredulity that someone who has written for years about the television industry has either never heard of a contract or has the shallowness to pretend he has never heard of a contract - I say, "are you kidding me?! when you go to network you sign a contract even before your last audition".....

So the dilemma, do I go on explaining the X-F contract/salary details - as if he really cares - all the while injecting positive quips about the show and how grateful I am, or do I cut it short because I really don't want to be in this conversation yet again even though I know that no matter how nicely I request the end, it will, especially in this situation, be contorted to fit the snippy mood of the journalist. None of this has much of anything to do with my experience on the series let alone me as a person.

The series went on for a long time - longer than any of us had anticipated or some of us had wished. It was the hardest work I will ever do in my life. I hope for the sake of my children and my sanity that I never have to work that hard again.

Did I hate it? At times yes.

Did I love it? At times yes.

Did I regret it or do I regret it now? Not for a second.

Did David and I hate each other? At times yes like any brother and sister, husband and wife, co-worker and co-worker forced to spend that much time together under such strenuous circumstances.

Do we hate each other now? Not in the least.

Do I imagine that when we do the film together we won't hate each other for a few hours during the filming? No. We will. Vehemently. As David waits patiently, again and again for the hair dryer to calm my frizzy hair between takes so it matches the beginning of the scene... he will undoubtedly be thinking "what the hell was I thinking agreeing to shoot with her f****** frizzy hair again?"

But we will also love each other and laugh with each other and pull pranks on each other and bug each other like we did for nine years.

And that's that.

I'll freaking believe it when I see it. They've been yammering about an X-Files 2 flick coming out for years now.

Yeah, I think they passed the window of opportunity for this by a few years. Not that I wouldn't mind seeing Scully on the big screen again (provided she's not spending the entire season/movie in a hospital trying to win an award for looking the most miserable), but I'm not holding my breath.

As much as I loves me some X-Files (and I mean GOOD X Files, not so much the last couple of seasons that were meandering) I really don't think that the fanbase is as strong as it was a few years back.

I'd love to see Gillian Anderson on the big screen...oh, yes...I would VERY much like to see her again, but I just think X Files is a done deal...

that never stopped them from making all those star trek movies


and also, I think there is a huge over reaction to this one blog entry

there is nothing else out there to support another X-Files movie

but I suppose

"The Truth Is Out There"

and

"I Want to Believe"

Sad to say, the window of XF movie opportunity closed when the series ended. As much as I'd also like to see Scully and Mulder on the big screen again, I'll believe there's going to be another XF movie when I finally buy my ticket on opening day (Ms. Anderson's blog entry notwithstanding).

Star Trek has more fans than the XF did. And they don't make Star Trek movies any more either, do they?
