Robert Patrick, who will sub for Mulder, playing a cop turned Fed. About six
or seven of the 20 or so episodes will be 'mythology' installments and the
rest stand-alones - the usual stingy ratio. They will be an hour in length
and will be punctuated by short films, or 'commercials,' that encourage
viewers to buy consumer goods and services." this is not new news. i just
