Starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson. Directed by Chris Carter. Fox Home Video. $29.95, blu-ray $39.95 *** The X-Files may have ended its television run in 2002, but interest in agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully and all that stuff the FBI isn't telling us continues. Which is why, six years after the weekly series left the air, The X-Files: I Want to Believe hit the big screen in July. Fans will be glad to run across Mulder and Scully once again: She's a dedicated surgeon trying to eradicate the world's ills over which she has some control, while he's become pretty much a basket case, burnt-out, disillusioned and basically not giving a darn anymore.

David Duchovny is playing God?Unfortunately, no. That would be interesting, certainly more interesting than this hopeless hodgepodge of violent-movie cliches that so badly wants to be "Pulp Fiction," it's a wonder director Andy Wilson didn't have his first name legally changed to Quentin.Duchovny is Eugene Sands, an L.A. surgeon who enjoyed taking drugs more than prescribing them -- a predilection that leaves him defrocked and de-humanized.But after saving a dude's life one night with some impromptu barroom surgery, he catches the fancy of real bad guy Raymond Blossom (Timothy Hutton)

House of D, actor David Duchovny's debut as a writer-director, is too precious by at least half. It's a film filled with quirky characters -- a mentally challenged janitor, a prisoner who tosses jewels of wisdom out the window of her second-story cell, a priest who emphasizes his Bible teachings by forming his fingers into quotation marks, a French teacher who doesn't realize her students are goading her into unintentionally saying naughty words --...

Yet another mid-season replacement debuts, this one on UPN, while David Duchovny experiences a different kind of horror than he's used to on Fox."Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Paul, Ira and a friend opt for a road trip, the better to experience some serious male bonding. But when the friend leaves them on a deserted highway well, would you want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with Paul or Ira? NBC."Kalifornia" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Brad Pitt is a killer who obviously drinks too much coffee and Juliette Lewis is his dim-bulb girlfriend; David Duchovny and Michelle Forbes are the yuppies who need to be more careful about whom they take on their cross-country road trips.

Old-fashioned in the best sense of the word, "Return to Me" is a little heart-warmer of a film that keeps threatening to turn into a trite Hallmark valentine. But some old acting pros in supporting roles, and the sure hand of first-time director Bonnie Hunt, keep it from crossing over into so-cute-I-can't-stand-it territory. Bob Rueland (David Duchovny) is an architect whose latest project is designing a new gorilla house for the zoo where his wife, Elizabeth (Joely Richardson), works.

Tonight, at long last, Friday night arrives with a suitcase -- or at least with a grab bag -- full of worthwhile TV offerings.There's one new series premiere, an especially spooky season premiere, and a brand-new telemovie that ought to delight fans of MTV.* "The X-Files" (9-10 p.m., Channel 45) -- This is the spooky second-season premiere in question -- and it begins where last season's cliffhanger left off, with "Deep Throat" dead and the X-Files team separated.Mulder (David Duchovny) is doing a routine wiretap, Scully (Gillian Anderson)

Baltimore looks pretty good in a Hollywood film that gets a repeat screening tonight, while political pundits face off on PBS over the question of curbing immigration.* "He Said, She Said" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- The romantic comedy had its world premiere at the Senator Theater in Baltimore in February 1991, and co-star Kevin Bacon was in attendance. Remember? The film was made here, with many locals as extras. Mr. Bacon stars as a Sun reporter and Elizabeth Perkins is his writing rival, with whom he becomes romantically involved between editions, and the story is told twice from their respective viewpoints.

Basketball fans will be in heaven tonight, but the alternatives, except for the fabulous fantasy forays on Fox, are few. Take it philosophically: That's the way the basketball bounces.* "NCAA basketball championships." (noon-5 p.m., 7:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- This second day of action is likely to be no less upsetting -- as in the potential of some top-seeded upsets -- than yesterday's. CBS, once again, provides 10 hours of coverage in the afternoon and evening. CBS.* "VR.5."

November 27, 1973.In the mythology of "The X-Files," it is the Night of Nights -- the night Agent Fox Mulder's sister, Samantha, was abducted by aliens. It is the night that launched Mulder (David Duchovny) on the quest that led him to the dark room with the government-green filing cabinets and metal shelves that hold the X-Files.Tomorrow night and next Sunday, we will all come to know what happened on that November night 26 years ago. What's known as The Conspiracy in "X-Files" lingo is explained in a mesmerizing two-part journey into the heart of the delicious counter-history darkness created by Chris Carter.

T is for the "T.G.I.F." lineup. I is for the intermittent ads. R is for the reruns that are rampant. E is for the ennui that I have. D is for the dismal summer schedule. (And I, I know you know that I am right.) Put them all together, they spell T-I-R-E-D. Which sums up yet another Friday night.* "People vs. O.J. Simpson" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Brian Williams will anchor this analysis of the O. J. Simpson preliminary hearing to date with defense attorneys Gerry Spence and Charles Ogletree (attorney for Anita Hill)

There's not much on TV tonight, but the two things that shouldn't be missed -- Fox's "The X-Files" and CBS' "Picket Fences" -- are on back-to-back, even though their backs are on different networks.* "Bugsy" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 2) -- You know what really "Bugsy" me? The fact that this movie pre-empts "Homicide: Life on the Street" which is superb. Then again, this 1991 movie is directed by Barry Levinson, who's also one of the creative forces behind "Homicide," so who am I to complain?

A lot of programs are taking a breather tonight after straining to offer so many first-run episodes during the February sweeps. "Picket Fences"? A repeat. "The X-Files"? A repeat. "Homicide: Life on the Street"? An original -- which makes tonight's best bet an easy call.* "M.A.N.T.I.S." (8-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Apparently, not even a praying "M.A.N.T.I.S." could save this series from hiatus, and probable cancellation. Beginning next week, its place will be taken by a new Fox series, "VR.5," that is a much more compatible fit with "The X-Files."

Last week, the final hour of prime time resulted in a battle that turned out like this: In the weekly Nielsen ratings, ABC's "20/20" just made the Top 30, CBS' "Picket Fences" just missed the Top 40, and NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street" just missed the Top 80. This is what we in the TV critic game call a shame, because "Picket Fences" and "Homicide" should be seen by everyone.* "Ancient Prophecies II" (8-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- More mumbo-jumbo for morons. I don't mean to poke fun at anyone's fervent beliefs, but the insidious, insulting and insipid way in which these "Ancient Prophecies" are described and re-enacted should make disbelievers out of us all. NBC.* "M.A.
