In the Express Entertainment section:
Stone Deaf to Charms of X-Files Hunk
Sharon Stone, who would rather curl up and read a book than get hip to pop culture fads, pleaded early ignornance to the David Duchovny phenomenon.

Stone said she tuned into cover boy Duchovny only after teaming with Gillian Anderson in the upcoming feel-good flick The Mighty. (Anderson, by the way, puts in an excellent performance as ugly white trash.)

"I didn't know who this David Duchovny was or what the big deal was," Stone said.

"I kept hearing his name all over, but I hadn't watched The X-Files.

"After I worked with Gillian, I was curious about the show, so I watched it, and I think he's great."

In the TV Guide was this small article:
X-Files Excess
Despite what could only be termed as a less-than-expected performance in cinemas, a sequal to The X-Files Fight The Future is already in the planning stages.

Stars of the movie and its long-running American television series, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, are signed to shoot the film next summer for a 2000 release.

"The X-Files" Just so you can start thinking about what we will be seeing soon, here is a sampling of what's in store on "The X-Files" as it's 5th season begins in the US.

Episode highlights:

Sunday, Oct. 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) -- Repeat of last season's finale (Part One of Three) -- Agent Mulder (David Duchovny) believes he has discovered the ultimate proof of extraterrestrial life, but when Scully (Gillian Anderson) uncovers contrary evidence, Mulder snaps emotionally while Scully is forced to confront her own mortality on "Gethsemane."

Sunday, Nov. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) -- Fifth Season Premiere (Part Two of Three) -- Scully's truthfulness about Mulder comes under intense scrutiny while suspicion arises that someone at the FBI -- possibly Assistant Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) -- was responsible for Scully's contraction of a fatal disease on "Redux."

Sunday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) -- 100th Episode (Part Three of Three) --With Scully lingering near death and the future of the X-Files in danger, the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) comes forward with a surprising offer to save Scully's life -- and more -- on "Redux II."

Sunday, Nov. 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) -- In an episode set in 1989, we see how the trio of paranoid conspiracy theorists -- known as The Lone Gunmen -- came to be and possibly how Mulder began his quest to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life.

Sunday, Nov. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) -- Stopped by a roadblock on their way to an FBI convention in Florida, Mulder and Scully find themselves stranded in the woods with a dealy predator in "Detour."
