One of the most surprising aspects of the panel was how young the fanbase is. Many fans had not been born when the show first hit the air and an impressive number of young women said they pursued science because of Scully, whom Carter called his "fantasy woman."
Fans of the granddaddy of the sci fi television were so juiced about the panel that they began lining up outside Ballroom 20 at midnight the night before. Now that's commitment.

The actress added that it was years after the fact that she realized how cool Sb Janoski Mulder was or she would have gone there much earlier. She also teased the crowd about a sex scene that she and Duchovny shot but never aired: "Am I supposed to behave myself?"
Duchovny ("Californication") said that the chemistry between him and Anderson was such that: "If we have a chance to come back together, we will."
"Sci fi works best when it explores strange new worlds, but with one foot still on Earth," she says. "That show made people look to the stars again, and for an hour every week, just like Mulder's office poster, they wanted to believe."
Not even an actual alien invasion could keep fans of the iconic science fiction series "The X Files" away from Thursday's highly anticipated 20th anniversary panel in Ballroom 20. Yes, it's been 20 years (how old does that make you feel?)
"The X Files reigns supreme," says fangirl Lindsay Duke. "It's the first priority."
SAN DIEGO The truth is out there, once more.
Mulder (David Duchovny looking rumpled but cute as per usual) and Scully (Gillian Anderson looking hot and blonde) and creator Chris Carter were on hand at the reunion to discuss the rich legacy of the show in American pop culture in general and TV in particular.

panel moderator, TV Guide's Los Angeles Bureau Chief Michael Schnieder, hailed the cult classic show as groundbreaking, "making genre safe for mainstream televsion."

Not even the Lone Gunmen could argue the tremendous impact of "The X Files," which opened the door for science fiction and fantasy in mainstream TV culture. The show skipped through genres from horror to comedy with aplomb while never letting go of its central premiere that a massive government conspiracy was affoot to monitor the populace (sound familiar?).
Asked about what made the show addictive she said it was the perfect mix of sci fi, romance and drama.
