I want to believe that the coming reboot of one of my all time favorite shows, The X-Files, is going to be good. I want to believe.

But I am oh-so-rudely reminded of my similar hope at the sad, sad arrival of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Plus the past few public appearances by show star David Duchovny have been a bit…rough, to say the least. He seems to have held it together with his recent appearance on David Letterman though. And who wouldn’t be excited about the return of Mitch Pileggi

The good news for Duchovny—he’ll evidently have a folk rock career to fall back on if this new X-Files doesn’t pan out.
