Yeah, X-files concluded some time ago... virtually dead now I think... any fans still out there? Perhaps time they made another movie... David Duchovny and Gillian Andersen seem to have nothing else going on so far...

Hmmm...how about a new X-File and X-Men crossover?
Mulder and Scully investigates a string of mutant sightings, who turn out to be the X-Men fighting with the Brotherhood. And then they join forces and the X-Men become the FBI's secret weapon to not only prevent other mutants from causing trouble, but also help investigate cases under the X-Files. ;D
And then they discover that Dogget is actually another T-1000 sent further back in time and is just buying time, waiting to assassinate John Connor...
In fact, what attracted me to this series is the that often we cannot be sure if the incident is paranormal or has a normal explanation. In the last season and in the movie, the alien explanation did not go well with me.
New movie in development reported at SciFi.com: NEWS OF THE WEEK FOR MAY. 22, 2006
Spotnitz Writing X-Files 2
Frank Spotnitz, the mastermind behind much of the mythology of The X-Files, told SCI FI Wire that he has signed on to help write the next movie based on the hit series, but that the new movie won't deal with the show's byzantine conspiracy arc. "There's still a very good chance that we will all do another X-Files movie," Spotnitz said in an interview. Spotnitz was an executive producer on the show, which starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson; it ended its nine-year run in 2002.
One point of contention in getting a second X-Files film off the ground: Series creator Chris Carter is still wrangling with 20th Century Fox over legal matters. "David, Gillian and I, and even Chris Carter, all have deals in place, and once the legal issues are over with, we will go on with it," Spotnitz said. "I'm hoping it will get resolved soon."
Although the script isn't written, the idea is already developed, Spotnitz said. He added that Fox likes the idea, which hearkens back to the series' stand-alone episodes rather than the conspiracy to cover up the existence of extraterrestrials, which was the subject of the first X-Files movie.
"No, we're not going into the mythology [in the sequel]," Spotnitz said. "One of the things that was exciting about doing it is to not make it a mythology story, and it's like one of the stand-alone episodes. It's a bit scary. Of course, we will catch up with the characters and what is going on in their lives, but it's not about the alien conspiracy. It's not about that." The first X-Files movie came out in 1998. —Mike Szymanski
I lost interest after the first movie and quit watching half way through season 6. I read that Chris Carter kept changing the storyline because the plots were being leaked on the net. Don't know if that's true or just an excuse for the crap he was churning out
I'm going to start re-watching from Season 1 again - i only watched it on TV (and that time it was TV2 where it was very bad quality i.e. dark, colors off). I too quit towards the final few seasons, so it'll be good to catch up and watch them all.
