David Duchovny tells Yahoo Entertainment that he is open to doing more X-Files shows and movies. ''I'm always up for more, clearly. Someone sent me a clip of Joel McHale from the 2016 episodes we did, and it's a spot-on description of where we're at six years later. I don't think Chris Carter gets enough credit for being [prescient]. Forget about the ins and outs of plots and who gets pregnant or who gets shot. I mean, every show turns into a soap opera, so you have limited options. People are going to die or get pregnant or go to prison, right? Or become president. I think like it's a little bit in the weeds to worry about characters' fates, when you realize that Chris somehow made a show in 1993, and again in 2016, that predicted what 2022 would be like. If he wanted to do more, I'd certainly listen to him. I'd say, "What have you got?''

Father's Day is Sunday. The day has me thinking about the two men I am dating. I know I will soon need to make a choice between them. They are very different and very good in their own respects. One man is a businessman and very wealthy. The other is not wealthy and loves to be outdoors playing sports. I want to have kids so it's important that I choose the right man. The wealthy one will be able to provide, but won't be able to give our kids as much time as the other man I am dating. Do I go with the 'Money Man' OR the 'Average Guy' with lots of time to spend with our kids? Which guy would you choose?
