        Here's a chance to sit back and watch The X-Files movie (1998) before catching a new X-Files episode.

        By some standards, the movie (6:45 p.m., HBO) was moderately disappointing. Plotwise, it was only moderately satisfying. Still, it packs a visual and visceral punch. Rob Bowman, one of the best of the X-Files directors, created some powerful moments.

        That helps get viewers in a mood for the TV episode that follows at 9 p.m. on Fox (Channels 19, 45). This one involves an effort to lure Scully over to the dark side; we'll see.
