One of the best scientists and skeptics television has ever seen is coming back, everyone: Fox confirmed today that they’re revivingTheX-Files for six new episodes starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
The summer between sixth and seventh grade was a long one. I was super gawky—already six feet tall, equally passionate about science and musical theater, with pants that never quite reached the ground—and I spent most of my days on the sofa, wolfing down episodes of The X-Files.
Today, the show celebrates the 20th anniversary of the day its first episode hit the air. As a tween, I couldn't have asked for a better role model than Agent Dana Scully.
