    "The X-Files" 9 Sunday on Fox (70782) --- Here's another cliffhanger, but not as captivating as "Malcolm," and a far cry from funny. The show that should have ended a couple of seasons back (I speak as a former, big-time fan) sputters forward. There's not enough of Scully (Gillian Anderson), either. She's largely sidelined taking care of her mystery baby, which leaves the deeply uncharismatic Doggett (Robert Patrick) investigating the drownings of two men by an apparent amphibious killing machine. The latter is played by former "Xena" star Lucy Lawless, and she's the best thing about an episode that has far too many conspiracy theories floating around, and too little suspense. Grade: C

    Lawless's character, Shannon McMahon ("Such an American name," Lawless says), could return -- although events in the Nov. 18 episode suggest otherwise.

    Lawless says she did the guest shot "for love" because she respects Carter. But "the others would have to make sense, and a business sense, if you know what I mean. . . ."I know the producers have been very good to me, and I would love to be good to them and their show," Lawless says. However, "you work like a dog for six years and being the star of your own little show. And to go and be a fifth wheel on somebody else's would have to be rewarding in a lot of ways."
