newbie and DANA SCULLY DISCUSSION

Hey guys!

MODS MESSAGE ME AND DELETE THIS IF ITS A NO GO...I'M NEW TO LJ


anyway, I'm a new member, and I was wondering-

Have you guys had any discussion on Scully? I didn't see her name in the tags, and I just think she's kind of essential to have in a community about female sci-fi discussion.


LLAP!

Yeah, not only is Scully a great character, but Gillian Anderson is an AMAZING actress and person in general. I love watching her interviews, because she's so intelligent and eloquent- PLUS her accent changes depending on who she's speaking to. She's english but i think alot of her childhood was in america, so she's got two accents, like John Barrowman.

What's your favorite Scully episode?

I still haven't gotten through all the seasons, but I LOVE 'Beyond the Sea' in Season One. The guest star, Brad Dourif (grima wormtongue in LOTR), is frickin INCREDIBLE and Gillian't acting in that...oh...i have no words. Definitely worth several re-watchings.

Beyond the Sea is brilliant, definitely one of my favourites! For Scully-centric episodes, I also really love Irresistible, although that one is so creepy, and All Souls. Ooh, and Chinga!

Have you got as far as all things yet? It's in Season 7, and is the one Gillian Anderson wrote and directed.

ahh NO actually! I started the series last semester, and then THIS semester i decided to study abroad in france, so right now i've only finished season 2! its KILLING me because i'm the one who got my family onto this show, and everytime i call home, my mom or dad answers, and they're like 'Oh we're just watching X-Files and eating dinner. This show is REALLY good by the way!' and they're just about to start season 9!

i have alot to catch up on!

Ooh, I love all of the episodes carawj mentions, and Beyond the Sea is awesome.

Wow, I'm so excited for you, not having finished watching it yet! You've got some really great stuff coming up. I really like Milagro, although it's creepy in an uncomfortable way, and everything at the end of S4/beginning of S5.

For funny Scully moments, War of the Coprophages is brilliant, as is Hollywood A.D. You'll have to keep us posted on how you're getting on with watching!
