On April 22, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully will return to Fox. Not in another crappy “X-Files” movie (seriously, what the hell was that, I Want to Believe?), but for the network’s 25th anniversary special. According to Vulture:
Vulture hears that silver anniversary special producer Don Mischer has booked “The X-Files” stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, along with creator Chris Carter… Mischer has also put together a “Married…with Children” reunion featuring all four core cast members: Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate, and David Faustino. We also hear the network is even planning on honoring some of its shows that didn’t last that long, with “The Tick” star Patrick Warburton slated to get some airtime. (Via)
It must be awkward when David Faustino’s around. Ed O’Neill has “Modern Family,” Katey Sagal is on “Sons of Anarchy” and “Futurama,” and Christina Applegate is the co-star of “Up All Night.” Faustino has the following Wikipedia fact: “Faustino owns a night club in Los Angeles named Balistyx, which is the same name as his rap album.” Other former-Fox stars at the reunion include Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestly, Gabrielle Carteris, and Ian Ziering from “Beverly Hills 90210”, and Calista Flockhart from “Ally McBeal,” with more to be announced.
What shows have been left out of the festivities? Where’s the love for “The Sinbad Show” and “World’s Wildest Police Videos”? If they don’t get at least one cast member from “M.A.N.T.I.S.” to make an appearance, there’s no point in even having a special. (But seriously, “Firefly” reunion or GTFO, Fox.)
