Shipping Sunday: The X-Files’s Mulder/Scully

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana ScullyTwenty years after The X-Files debuted on television and 5 years since the last movie hit theaters, interest in the X-Files franchise is still high, if sold-out panels and constant queries and media reports about the state of a third movie are anything to go by. A big part of that reason has to be its stars, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and the tremendous chemistry between their characters, FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Whether you rooted for them to get together or hoped to see them to remain close friends and partners as they investigated the strange and the extraterrestrial, there's no denying that Mulder and Scully ARE The X-Files.

And if you do ship them (as I do)? Boy, have I got a treat for you this weekend...

@Travelover -- That rumor's been out there for a while, but I think they're just close friends. Either way, they always look great together!

@madre -- Me too. Considering a rewatch soon!

@wsl0612 -- I know, I like a nice, slow buildup, but even in the end things between them were so ambiguous!
