So do I, but I gotta say, it's wonderful to see Chris receiving some recognition for his work. Here' s hoping executive at Fox are noticing. Might give them the incentive to do a new X Files movie and maybe bring back Millennium too, or possibly ask for new material.

Here's hoping Fox does something. It's still not to late to bring Frank back in a movie, and naturally, with Jordan. X-Files, I'm thinking people are somewhat burned out. There were 9 seasons and to the best of my knowledge 3 movies, Flight of the Future, I Want To Believe, and Revelations. And, from what I understand, the last movie didn't do well at the box office, but I could be mistaken.

There's only been two XF movies, FtF and IWTB. There was a DVD called "Revelations" which had a selection of XF episodes on it - maybe that's what you're thinking of?

There's still a vigorous campaign ongoing for another XF movie. I think that has a better chance than a Millennium movie because the X-Files/Mulder/Scully are still so recognisable to the general public and more marketable. Though, having said that, I think Fox needs to do better than it did with IWTB. I know the reasons why IWTB was released in the summer, but it should really have been an autumn/winter release.

Thinking more about this, if there ever were to be a MM movie (penned by CC) then I'd pre-order the DVD (I don't like going to the cinema); but if XF3 happens I'm not sure I'd bother.
