    I never watched more than a few shows, but I think I missed out on a good series. Question is, what happened after the movie? Anything relating to that plot? Was there ever a finale?

    I believe there was a finale.

    But I never really watched the show.

    Duchovney and Gillian both quit the show to pursue big Hollywood careers (ya see well that worked out for them :) ) and they replaced them with new characters for the final seasons. The show was dead by then anyway...

    I watched the movie for the first time this week too. It was decent, but not great. But definately watchable.

    They picked the right guy to replace duchovny tho', using the t-2 dude from terminator. I think he was a good choice, but the show was indeed ready to die.

    I thought it was a pretty good move for duchovny. I mean, did you see him in zoolander? He must have made at least 50 bucks for that one...

    Duchovny was never built to carry a movie. He's got a slow pace about 'em. Which worked for his x-file character perfectly. But he didn't seem like he could stretch that style into anything else. It just was what it was. And he's got nothing more.The thing he'd be good at is supporting characters. He's got that down to a nice science.

    As far as Gillian, let's be honest, she's not that hot. She's kinda grown on people, but she's not hot. She's demonstrated some acting skill on the big screen, but again, probably a good supporting actress and little more. There's no major draw to her. I don't have any reason to go see her movies. In fact, women in general don't have a lot of draw at the box office for me. I think i might be drawn to a kiera knightly movie, Naomi watts, and possibly Jodie Foster, and maybe Natalie Portman, and Ashley Judd.
