That collective moaning you hard all weekend was not Canada all settling in on the couch after gorging themselves on turkey during Thanksgiving. Nope. It was X Files fans who have been flooded with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny news that will keep everyone happy for months. Of course they will not all truly be happy until Gillian and David end up together publicly. No more teasing. They want full out open relationship. Only then will the world make sense.
In the meantime they will have to settle for a third X-Files movie. These long gaps between movies are probably not doing the franchise much good. Yes, die hard fans of the series will go no matter what. The thing is unless they go see the movie many times it won't be enough to make the movie a huge success. You need other people to go see it and it has been a long time since the second movie and way back to get to the first movie and even further back to get to the pilot episode of the show.
The best quote from the Reddit interview the two stars gave on AMA other than the photo of the pair in bed to prove their bonafides? “I wish that the lap dances I used to do as Scully in David's trailer could have been filmed.” – Gillian Anderson
Now if someone would have only asked a followup question when David referred to his kids as “our kids,” when talking about Gillian. Did he confirm a favorite fan rumor? Did the words just come out wrong? Is the smoking man an e-smoker now?
