On the 20th Anniversary of 'The X-Files,' Gillian Anderson Thanks David Duchovny For Those Speedos
Yesterday was the 20th Anniversary of the debut of The X-Files, which is just insane. It was the second show I ever developed a real obsession for (after “The Wonder Years”) and the second show that had kooky Kool-Aid that we could all take sips from (Twin Peaks, as some recall, came first). Yes, the conspiracy premise behind the show was ultimately a letdown, but it primed many of us for “Lost” over a decade later. So, thanks for that, Chris Carter.
On the occasion of the 20th Anniversary, Gillian Anderson penned a very sweet note to all the fans, to Chris Carter, and to David Duchovny, and mostly what it did was to make many of us feel old. Really? I cannot fathom the thought that people who grew up on The X-Files are now introducing it to their children.
You gotta appreciate the call-out to Duchovny’s speedos, too, which were the second most horrifying thing of The X-Files run after the Peacock family.
