    I'm watching this, and concurrently rewatching seasons 1 and 2 since I never really kept up with the show when it was first out in the 90's.

    The only thing I keep thinking is: God,time is a motherfucker! They both look so OLD. I know it's been 22 years but still. It's like they're shooting Scully to *make* her look older than she is. She looks great in her candids and scenes in The Fall. And Duchovny never looked that bloated even in the most dire Californication scenes.

    Gillian's wig is horrific. Even if she refused to dye her hair red (which is beyond me, since the blonde isn't the amazingness she seems to think it is), then at least spring for a quality wig in a flattering shape and color. The one they chose makes her look so dour.

    I kind of think they are trying to make them look haggard because of the years of living with the William guilt.

    Laurent-I read that they told GA that her hair would fall out if she dyed it again.

    Gas-chick, I think so too. It's gotta be on purpose to drive home the point. But it's really distracting since I'm switching back and forth from Season 1 episodes.

    Btw, the William scenes broke me too. So sad.

    Dying her hair red is one hell of a long process as it takes many layers of colour to get it somewhat natural - if she then had to have it stripped and taken back to blonde for the other tv series that she's committed to then it might well have ended up with a NicoleWasHere situation.

    I felt sorry for the kids locked up with those severe deformities. I didn't mind when Dr. Goldman's eyes popped out and blood poured out.

    I liked mulder's references to edward snowden.

    I was tickled to see that dude who played Dr. Goldman--I was all "THAT'S THE GUY FROM MELROSE PLACE!" Haven't seen him in anything in ages.

    Wasn't the nun who arranged the interview with "The Founder" the same actress who played the adult Eves in the the original series?

    No but she did play Scully's therapist in two episodes.

    This. I was going up and down the dial and happened to fall right into an episode as it was already running. The most distracting thing to me was how black Duchovny's hair looked, so totally unnatural and achieving the opposite of what they might have been aiming at: it aged him horribly.

    So excited for tonight's monster episode. I love this article but we got your number Gillian.


    Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny 'closer than ever'
    23 hrs ago


    ©

    Bang Showbiz Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are closer now than when they first worked on 'The X Files.'

    The pair recently reprised their roles as Dana Scully and Fox Mulder for a new six-part series of the sci-fi show and Gillian admitted they get on much better now than they ever did.
    She said: "David and I are a lot closer today than we ever were while doing the series or the films. We're both a little older and have a little more perspective that comes from being parents and going through different struggles in our own lives.

    "Now we see that it's easier to support each other and enjoy our friendship and the time we've been able to spend together. "While there have been repeated suggestions that the pair have a real-life romance, Gillian insisted they simply have great chemistry which translates well on screen.

    She told The Sun on Sunday: "['X Files' creator] Chris Carter was very clever in casting us in that there's energy that exists just when David and I are standing in a room together.

    "What was interesting is that the writers completely capitalized on that, and drew out that reality as long as they possibly could. Things got to the point where the tiniest touch of the hand in season five would make people freak out."
