Former FBI Agents Mulder and Scully are still alive and kicking in Toobworld, but we'll have to go into the borderlands with the movie universe in order to see them again. Another movie based on 'The X-Files' is being produced right now which will reunite David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Chris Carter, the power behind the original series.

The movie supposedly will have a stand-alone plot and will not tie into the show's too-confusing and ultimately disappointing mythology. (The image shown here was one of the first released from the film.)

They may no longer be seen in Earth Prime-Time, but there are plenty of cases out there which might pique their interest. After all, the Winchester boys of 'Supernatural' and Team 'Torchwood' can't do everything!

The Tide Ad
Sure, this was a funny commercial in which a guy was interviewing for a new job, but his potential employer couldn't take his eyes off the stain on the guy's shirt. To illustrate how noticeable it was, the stain actually talked!

Cute... until you realize this stain must be some kind of sentient, sycophantic organism come to Earth to conquer the human race. Perhaps it looks like creosote or some extract used in industrial varnishing, but so far as I know, that stuff doesn't talk! (I don't get out much, so I really wouldn't know.)
Yes, I believe this stain is descended from that small patch of brown liquid which put forth the case against the government in a debate on 'Face The Press' (as seen on 'Monty Python's Flying Circus'). This invasion may have started with just this one stain, but who knows where it may lead? If not stopped with some kind of high-tech quicker picker-upper, they probably intend to build their own theme parks with blackjack and hookers! (In fact, forget the theme park and the blackjack.....)

Keep watching the stains!

I better go have a lie-down.....

True true, poor X Files... but I think they tried something big and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. We'll see what happens in 2010... Boil me to soup if I don't think Carter hit the nail on the head. 2010. Chris Carter and the Mayans...

Plus, if not for "later X Files" we'd never have the Cigarette Smoking Man's awesome Life is Like a Box of Chocolates soliloquy. One of my favorite X Files moments... Here for your pleasure:::

"Life is like a box of chocolates.

"A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for.
Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So
you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly
wolf down because there's nothing else left to eat.

"Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an English toffee,
but they're gone too fast. The taste is... fleeting.

"They end up in nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and
teeth-shattering nuts. You're desperate enough to eat those and all
you've got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper
