Is Gillian Anderson pissed?
She seems to be totally phoning it in. Maybe it’s her understated delivery or the flu, but she seems NOT into it at all.
She is, however, walking in front of Mulder every now and then. Perhaps that strange network mandate about following him received so much negative press they changed their minds?
But the money issue is probably bugging her to the point she wants to quit, based on these first two new episodes.
