Hitting All The Right (NewAge) Buttons

"'The X-Files’ is equal to God.”

-- David Duchovny, when asked what the cult hit is "all about," in the Los Angeles Times

The article continues with these other typical NewAge observations:

“My initial response — and I still hold this to be true — is that it takes the place of some of the functions of a church in a small town: A place where people come together, ostensibly to worship something."

Duchovny said that he has come to view the most loyal fans of the show as celebrants of self, not of celebrity."


Well, fancy that.
