From an article on celebrities who play golf in the September 22 issue of TV Week:
Known for her role on TV sitcom The Naked Truth, these days Tea is putting motherhood first, bringing up daughter Madeleine West (with husband, X-Files star David Duchovny) while acting on the occasional film like Jurassic Park III. And that suits her just fine, because now she has time to spend on her favourite sport: golf! According to Tea, ‘My golf game improved dramatically when I was pregnant. Not only because I finally had the time, but also I had gained almost 60 pounds, and I'll tell you, you can really smack that ball when you're closing in on 200.’

Eine Kleine Frohike
Last night's episode of The Lone Gunmen was Eine Kleine Frohike which was supposed to screen last week. So at least we haven't missed any episodes. Like Water For Octane, which received a very favourable review in last weekend's Sun-Herald should screen next week.
I've added Eine Kleine Frohike to my Lone Gunmen episode guide.

The September Filmink contains reviews of Spy Kids, The Family Man and Vertical Limit. On pages 42-43 of this magazine there is an article on who would play a female Terminator. One if the suggestions the magazine puts forward is Gillian Anderson with the following paragraph:
She may be diminutive, but Robert Patrick could give her some pointers, since he was the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and is currently playing Agent Doggett on The X-Files. Everyone knows Scully's got that ball-breaking glare, and that combined with her red hair shooting sparks would make it a riot to see her slap Arnie around like wet laundry. She could breathe new life into the adage 'Good things come in small packages'. There is also a small photo of GA on page 42 of this magazine which is available free from Hoyts cinemas now.
In Overseas mag news, one to look out for in 2 months time at newsagents is TV Zone # 142 which has a 4 page X-Files article in it . It is available now at comic shops.
ThanX to Lucy.

Not much X-Files related news to report over the past five days, with the terrible tragedy in America dominating everyone's thoughts and prayers.
Last Thursday night's episode of The Lone Gunmen, Eine Kleine Frohike, wasn't aired because of the US news coverage, and despite reports in some TV guides that there wasn't going to be an episode this week, according to today's Sun-Herald, the episode Like Water for Octane will air. Their Television lifout gave it four stars in a glowing review.
There was a review of last week's ep. in The Courier Mail.
